i am not sure anybody is still reading though this post but i thought i would use it as my sounding board.
my husband and i went to a counselor today finally. it took a while to book an apt.
the counselor takes the approach of Emotional Focused Therapy. i thought i was very interesting and we established quite a lot in the first session. i had a cry session and he had a revelation of his own.
although it is the first session i feel very positive.
my husband deals with a lot of his own depression and anxiety however our relationship is still important.
i remember a doctor telling us that it's better to solve his depression first and then work on 'us'. i don't agree to this. either do the relationship first so you know how to react and treat eachother or do both if the other can handle two therapies. that's my personal feeling.
so for those who are out there and looking for something. google emotional focused therapy.
