As you examine what has been holding you back from finding or sustaining a healthy relationship, your counselor will help you determine your areas of strength and identify constructive ways to further develop them. You will finally be able to discover who you want to be in your relationship.
Moreover, you will get to learn better ways of expressing yourself clearly and without guilt or remorse. Developing the assertiveness to vocalize your needs and desires is another benefit you can get from relationship counseling. When you have a space of support and empathy, you will also feel more inspired to resolve and surmount the thought and behavior patterns that are causing you pain or keeping you stuck.
