“I’m interested in therapy, but my (son, husband, wife, daughter, mom) isn’t.”
Getting in the Door…
If you are in a relationship which you think could benefit from therapy, but your loved one or family member resists the idea, you need help getting in the door.
In April I will be presenting evening talks in which we will examine what barriers might prevent your spouse, partner or child from walking through that door with you. How can they be given hope that help for a difficult situation is possible? Perhaps they don’t see that there IS a problem. Perhaps they are afraid that someone is going to tell them that they are the problem.
Relationships require work. If this is the right time to work on your relationship, but it feels like a one-sided effort, let’s talk about what stands in the way, and how your partner or family member can be helped to feel included, valued, and important.
These presentations will take place in small groups. We will benefit from hearing each others’ experiences. I will establish ground rules to insure that the conversation feels safe and secure for all participants. There is no fee for these presentations. If you would prefer to arrange a private session, a nominal fee is charged. If you would like to arrange for a free presentation at your church, school or organization, please let me know.
For more information on these presentations please send me an email, or give me a call at 707-327-9183.
