A number of different techniques are made available through the realms of Christian counseling. The best and most effective methods will be determined by your counselor that will custom fit your situation and your story which is unique to you and your partner.
The most common couples counseling techniques include:
- Gottman Method – Building “love maps” is what this method is all about, Doing so helps you find understanding for your partner’s stresses, hopes, fears, stresses, joys, and background. The ultimate goal is to acquire a connection that is a deeper connection and to raise your appreciation of each other. You will also learn conflict management skills.
- Couples Counseling through the Crucible Approach – This method for counseling couples is revolutionary in that it is geared towards achieving sexual intimacy. Each individual is given the tools needed for personal growth. It also identifies issues that are hindering intimacy within the relationship and offers unique solutions that are designed to last.
- Couples Therapy that is Emotionally-Focused – This type of therapy offers solutions that are real and speedy by setting short-term, substantial goals that involve making changes to repair destructive emotional responses.It promotes the building of a strong and positive emotional connection and also teaches couples how to interact with each other in healthy and productive ways.
- Narrative Therapy – This style of counseling improves communication by allowing each individual in the relationship to tell about their experiences in story (narrative) form. This way of presenting facts and feelings creates some separation between the individual and the problem so feelings are able to be freely expressed without blame or hurting each another or defining one another by mistakes that have been made. Together with a counselor, you and your partner can rewrite the parts of the story that are negative so you real solutions can be reached and you can build the relationship that is desired.
- Psychodynamic Approach – Childhood experiences and other things in our past affect us, often in negative ways. They can influence our relationships too.The psychodynamic approach helps to uncover the issues that are buried away so that they can be worked through to allow change to come and irrational patterns and harmful behaviors can cease.
