Personal experiences of counselling and psychotherapy
Third time lucky
We went to one session at Relate and agreed that it wasn’t for us. We then went to a few sessions with the Church that married us – but while we talked about our problems, we didn’t learn any new ways to cope with them. Then we saw a local woman privately, and things started to shift. Our big insight was all about respect and respecting the other’s time, talents and point of view. I don’t think we’ll ever have a great marriage (whatever that is), but I can now see how we can both make our marriage work, which I once thought was impossible.
