Checking Out the Impact of Counseling

March 16, 2016

In a recent blog, I wrote about the benefit of debriefing –  examining the outcome of our work and work performance.

To that end I asked a client in couple counseling what if anything was learned from our few sessions. The client said, “I took on our relationship as a responsibility”.

I was impressed.

So often couples come to counseling complaining about the shortcomings of the other. It takes maturity to realize that a good relationship is a responsibility and not just a wish or something you look to get from the other person.

Needless to say, they looked much improved. I love this work.

Know someone who might benefit from this information? Please scroll down and share this article. Looking for couple counseling? I typically see people within one to two weeks. It would be my pleasure to be of service.
