Often in marriage counseling, the sessions start with and are mostly focused on problem solving, but we save this for the end. There’s good reason.
After you identify your cycle and create new and deeper bonds with each other many of the “problems” that weren’t really problems, kind of fade away. These “problems” were really emotional reactions and hurt feelings. They were also deep, misunderstood hurt. We’ve already worked through those.
We can now focus on looking for new solutions to the real issues that keep coming up. When you are more connected and feel safe with each other, you are much more equipped to hear all sides and work toward real solutions. As we do this, we will continue to practice and improve the new dance steps.
When we complete this final stage, you will be ready to do it all on your own.
