Conflict resolution is important for couples when they come to a standstill regarding Issues.
For example, couples may have great difficulty figuring out how to discuss having children, how to discipline children, religion, finances, or managing in-law relationships. Marriage counseling may help couples improve communication, it is not uncommon for couples to experience frustration when facing an impasse in a certain area of conflict. These conflicts can be either acute or chronic and can have significant impact on strength and intimacy of a relationship. This may cause frustration mixed with anxiety, and depression. Additionally, conflicts that are left unresolved can have a negative impact on other members of the family, co-workers, friends or other people close to the situation.
At LifeWorks Behavioral Health & Consulting our therapist often work with couples in the Temple, Killeen, and Copperas Cove communities to help them better communicate through these difficult topics and find resolve for long-standing arguments and places of marital tension.
One of the most painful incidents a relationship can endure is the presence of an affair. Often when an affair is revealed, partners may wonder if the relationship could possibly survive and how they could ever recover.
Though affairs are painful, our counselors at LifeWorks Behavioral Health & Consulting have helped many couples work though the difficult aspects of an affair and have led them to a place where they are more healthy and whole than when they started.
In our discussions, we will create a safe environment of healing and reassurance to help the relationship return to a place where that is secure for both partners. Communication skills and individual needs will also be addressed to help better understand what precipitated the affair and how to prevent it from happening again in the future.
