The Fulfilling Relationship

The exact content of Marriage and Relationship Counselling for couples is of course always determined by each couple’s needs. Nevertheless, in marriage and relationship counselling, just as in personal counselling and individual psychotherapy, it is crucial that we first of all create a good therapeutic relationship. What this means is that the relationship between the counsellor/therapist and the clients is based on heartfelt understanding, so that you have a clear sense that I really get you; that I understand what is going on for you – emotionally as well as in the practical reality of your life together.

After working with hundreds of couples from all walks of life, it has become evident that there are certain fundamental principles that need to be in place for a relationship to be truly fulfilling.

Firstly, what fundamentally determines the quality of all connections between people, in relationships as well as in life generally, is their ability to be Authentic, Personal and Present with one another. You can read more about that here: Being Authentic, Personal and Present.

Secondly, to have a truly Fulfilling Relationship, the two people in the relationship must be committed to work together toward mutual satisfaction in every aspect of their life together. How this applies in the relationship counselling is described by the Fulfilling Relationship approach. This highly effective approach to marriage and relationship counselling is based on a balanced combination of open sharing and guidance, effective exercises and take-home tasks, which gently transform relationships from ordinary to extraordinary.

A process which embodies the core of the Fulfilling Relationship approach is the “Establishing Agreements that Satisfy Everyone” [EASE] process. Read an article about the EASE process…
