Couple Counselling Singapore

Introduction:

Relationships can be incredibly beautiful yet challenging. Couples, regardless of their gender, stage of commitment, or type of relationship, may face obstacles that can strain their bond. At Listening Ear Counselling & Consultancy Pte Ltd, we recognize the vulnerability that comes with love and provide the necessary tools and support to navigate these difficulties.

What is Couples Counselling?

Couples counselling offers a safe space for partners to resolve conflicts, improve communication, and deepen their connection with the guidance of a professional. It helps couples address issues and find practical solutions to enhance their relationship.

Benefits of Couples Counselling:

  • Improved Communication: Helps partners express their thoughts and feelings openly and carry on conversations without blame or the four horsemen of criticism, defensiveness, contempt, and stonewalling.
  • Conflict Resolution: Addresses misunderstandings and disagreements.
  • Enhanced Intimacy: Reignites the emotional and physical connection between partners.
  • Trust Restoration: Works on rebuilding trust and reducing destructive habits.
  • Understanding and Healing the Past: We recognize that individuals are not the problem but may carry problems from childhood trauma, previous relationships, or attachment wounds. Our approach focuses on moving forward while repairing and healing the past that may be trapping the present.

Common Issues Addressed:

  • Communication Problems: Misunderstandings and lack of effective dialogue, focusing on how to carry a conversation without blame or the four horsemen of criticism, defensiveness, contempt, and stonewalling.
  • Lack of Trust: Issues with transparency and trust within the relationship.
  • Decreased Intimacy: Emotional and physical disconnect over time.
  • Recurrent Conflicts: Persistent arguments and unresolved issues.
  • Recognition and Praise: Teaching partners to see, notice, and praise each other, and most importantly, how to repair and rebuild the relationship.
