Pain is inevitable in every relationship. We all experience loss at some point. The resulting grief can draw couples and families together as they support each other through the grief journey.
Sometimes though the grief or loss is so overwhelming that couples or individuals need help to find a way through the pain. It is also common where the grief is extreme that differing emotional coping styles can actually intensify the pain.
In this case having the support of an experienced therapist can help you use the strengths of the relationship to get you back on the right path.
Working with depression and loss as a couple has a number of key advantages. It is:
- More Effective
- Longer Lasting
- Stress Reducing
- Relationship Enhancing
In fact it is not uncommon for couples who came to counselling to deal with a loss to say things like – this has a been a terrible time but I feel lucky because if this hadn’t happened we never would have got to come to counselling together and learn how to connect like this.
