The way you communicate with another person will influence how they understand and respond to you. The communication skills we have play a big impact in our relationships with others. Couples will often seek counseling to help with their communication problems. Some common reasons couples seek therapy for communication issues include:

  • Frequent disagreements
  • Inability to compromise
  • Unproductive disagreements
  • High levels of criticism
  • Not feeling heard
  • Intense disagreements
  • Not talking at all
  • Inability to repair relationship after a fight
  • High levels of defensiveness

Communication issues can arise suddenly or are more often developed over time. Communication problems can lead to a lot of hurt and resentment in the relationship. Valor Counseling has experience in helping couples learn the communication skills they need to improve their relationship. To start the process of improving your relationship call (630) 410-1818 or contact us today.
