What to expect in your first couples counselling session

… after the paperwork.

I begin the session with a communication exercise. This will not only teach the basics of communication, it will also set the base line to establish how we will be communicating when discussing the issues that originally brought you to counselling.


Next each of you will take a few minutes to write down the things that 

you feel are issues in the relationship.


I will then spend a few minutes taking a little history about your past, 

your families of origin, and how you met.

Then with the remaining time we will begin to look at the issues

one at a time.


You will leave with some homework or a challenge.

It doesn’t sound that scary does it?


Other effective tools that I use while working with couples are:

The 5 Love Languages

Gary Chapman’s program around The 5 Love Languages has received international recognition and acclamation. I will generally not introduce the “Love Languages” until the couple is feeling stable and ready to work on growth.

Prepare/Enrich

Prepare /Enrich is the leading relationship inventory and skill-building program in use nationally and internationally.
