This is by far the most common reason for couples to come into couple counselling.
When communication breaks down, couples find themselves stuck on how to reconnect. Usually, they go around in circles, saying the same things and acting the same way, bringing up the same issue and never getting any further forward. Arguing and bickering causes a great deal of frustration and resentment as there is no resolution. Equally; silences, one-word answers, factual communication, and cold and detached avoidance causes a great deal of sadness. Whatever communication difficulty you may be experiencing can dramatically improve with the intervention of an experienced couple counsellor.
