Results of marriage counseling
The outcome of marriage counseling has two possible outcomes. You believe in each other and want to address the areas of improvement to build a loving intimate marriage. A marriage where the balance between trust, attention and tension allows intimacy to grow.
When no more together is possible, you know that you have done everything possible, allowing you to part in a respectful way. From Your Love, we give direction on how you can do this.
Whatever the outcome, you have learned a lot about yourself. The insights are ‘building blocks’ for a happy life, because you too are entitled to happiness!
Explanation of methodology
Marriage counseling is based on EFT, CBCT and IBCT supplemented with consciousness insights.
- EFT = Emotionally Focused Therapy
- CBCT = Cognitive Behavioral Couple Therapy
- IBCT = Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy
EFT focuses on emotions and feelings to explore and resolve marriage issues. EFT is less appropriate for marriages where communication or psychological problems are at the root. For this purpose, elements from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBCT and IBCT) and conscious thinking have been added to Your Love’s online marriage counseling.
Affordable marriage counseling
Since 2004, the methodology of Your Love has been continually developed and, over time, transformed into online marriage counseling.
The reason was that marriage problems were, after depression and anxiety disorders, one of the most common reasons for treatment within mental health care. By health insurance companies, marriage problems as a primary complaint are no longer reimbursed.
Thus was born the need for affordable marriage counseling that is accessible to all.
Marriage counseling is always useful
Marriage counseling is in 80% of the couples the solution to continue with each other. Even in couples where one of the partners was skeptical or negative at first. If the stubborn partner does ‘click’, then these are often the go-getters.
If the marriage problems have not been addressed for years, chances are that the love has died out. Due to detachment, it is almost impossible to rekindle it. Feeling is not manufacturable and cannot be rekindled by marriage counseling.
Marriage counseling is not something of the last 10 years. The way and how we organize it has changed due to environmental awareness, the internet and COVID.
Marriage counseling that fits your lifestyle, without ‘homework’, that is the best online marriage counseling also called couples therapy of Your Love. This is supplemented with support from experienced marriage counselors, if you need it.
When we talk about a good marriage, we are talking about a lasting loving intimate marriage. A marriage within which you feel loved, valued and respected. That is what we strive for in the online marriage counseling of Your Love.
The lasting loving intimate marriage fulfills three important relational needs:
- Need for bonding
- Need for togetherness
- Need for own space
Need for bonding
Attachment is about the need for emotional connection within a marriage. Think about the need for love, appreciation, intimacy, support and security. Much of what goes well and not well within a marriage has to do with the degree of meeting this need of attachment.
Need for togetherness
By need for together we mean the need to function together (socially). Partners in a marriage form a ‘functional’ unit in the social, societal, financial and legal fields. The marriage also needs to meet caring tasks, such as caring for children or sick relatives.
It is not uncommon for partners to be more occupied with social tasks than they are with spending time together for a good conversation. Conversations in which things are coordinated, arranged and tasks are divided. If this is not done properly, it creates dysfunction in one or both partners which leads to dissatisfaction within the marriage.
In practice, it is common for partners to have a good functional unity, but the emotional connection has been compromised.
Need for own space
Within the marriage there should also be room for the individual needs. By this we mean, among other things, one’s own development, one’s own identity, one’s own career, one’s own space, one’s own opinion and one’s own social contacts.
Too much compromise and adjustment for the sake of the marriage and satisfaction of the other can later lead to dissatisfaction, disruption and distance in the marriage. When conflicts are not expressed, or when one partner is very dominant and the other is too accommodating, this can also lead to disruption.
Relational needs are not merely about attachment and affective needs. Communicating with each other and understanding each other are just as important for making compromises, reaching agreements, caring and organizing.
Disruptions at the attachment level will directly affect the quality of the attachment bond and partners need to repair it whenever possible. Examples include breach of trust, growing apart due to too little time together, or decrease in passion and affection.
Disruptions in the areas of togetherness and personal space will not directly affect the attachment bond, but if left unresolved, they may begin to do so over time. Examples include stress from persistent money problems, work problems, social or psychological problems.
The ongoing problems lead to growing frustration, annoyances, arguments or loss of respect.
As needs are met, the marriage can continue to develop and the bond of love becomes stronger and stronger.
Your Love’s marriage counseling helps you work on yourself and build on your marriage.
