Couples Communication Skills

Sometimes even when we feel loved and want our partner to express their needs the same way. We cannot communicate with each other feeling like we have both been heard and understood. Our best intentions, get lost in frustration, anger, and sadness. Communicating as a couples doesn’t have to be so hard. Many couples have different communication styles. One partner is more verbal and passionate, while the other is quiet and avoids conflict at all costs. This can make one partner feel as if they don’t care as much as you.

Couples counseling using The Gottman Method can help discover each other’s emotional needs and learn to improve your communication. After both learn to respond in a way that meets each person’s emotional needs there can much a much deeper, meaningful connection.
