Our marriage is falling apart, but my partner won’t join me for counseling. Can you help us?”
I often get calls from the hopeful partner who is committed to doing whatever it takes to save their relationship, even if their partner is reluctant or unwilling to join in the therapy component.
You are not alone.
It’s a common scenario, and it is possible to work constructively on your marriage even when you partner will not do Discernment Counseling with you – at the present time
The good news is that often when one partner starts making changes and puts a focused effort into helping the marriage, the other spouse becomes motivated to join in the process.
It doesn’t always work that way, but regardless, getting the help you need, even if it’s by yourself, can definitely improve the quality of your life and potentially the quality of your marriage.
The goal of Hopeful Partner Counseling is to help you bring your best self to solving the crisis in your relationship, hopefully restoring your relationship and if not, fostering a more cooperative divorce.
I can support your desire to save your marriage by helping you learn about yourself and your role in your relationship and this crisis; and I can help you engage with your partner in healthy, constructive ways, to possibly prevent a divorce and restore your marriage to health.
Hopeful Partner Counseling, which is usually between 1 and 5 sessions, will focus on:
- Learning how to make positive changes that will be healthier for yourself
- Learning how to apply those changes in ways that contribute to a healthier relationship
- Spotting triggers and avoiding mistakes that will ramp thing up during a crisis
- Creating a collaborative relationship even if the marriage ends in divorce
