Re: Thoughts on couple & individual with same therapist
Your therapist is doing the right thing for a 'major' conflict.
In joint sessions, with such conflicts, couples tend to either be mute and minimise,, or they argue and try to get the therapist on-side.
The individual sessions are essential. One can open up about the other and the therapist can suggest ways they might change their approach without the other partner seizing on it as ammunition.
If a couple has hit a wall and neither will back down, the therapist has to look for flexibility to negotiate around,, NOT tell you what to do.
The flexibilities are best found in individual sessions in such instances.
