It is more difficult for couples to stay together than at any time in modern history. In order to navigate through the challenges that can arise in relationships, couples counseling can help. Not only can counseling help the couple as a whole, but it can also benefit both parties individually. Counseling with temperament therapy can help couples who wish to work through the following issues:
Communication Problems Communication problems begin early, with our family of origin, the way we were respected as children. It’s a matter of learning new skills based on our temperament strengths and weakness.
Financial Issues Problems with money are one of the top reasons why couples seek counseling. Financial issues are best solved by educating yourself, your spouse, and even your children on that subject. Knowledge of your inborn temperament will also help with money management issues.
Infidelity By applying temperament therapy, you will learn psychological techniques based on the temperament of the people involved to deal with your significant other when and if infidelity occurs.
Blended Family challenges Family is the bedrock of society. Thirteen hundred new blended families are formed every day. The majority of families in America fall into this category.
Blended families have a high failure rate because no one understands what each other’s needs are. Temperament therapy reveals everyone’s deepest needs immediately, allowing the families to have a fighting chance at normalcy.
