Talk and Explore
The Talk and Explore sessions cover your goals, desires and concept of relationships. We explore your current relationship to discover which areas you see 'eye to eye' in and what areas, there may be issues. In issue area's, skills are gained in meeting the needs of both partners, and couples learn to compromise and listen to the needs of each other in a safe, healthy environment; learning to work together in gaining important skills to enhance their relationship.
The use of Reality Therapy is used in our Talk & Explore option for couples. We look at the commonality of wants, goals, doing & thinking, and perceptual systems. We look at how your choices and behaviors affect your life; taking responsibility for your own actions and learn to recognize the only person you can control is yourself.
