Counseling for Couples
Katrina Bos offers three different types of private consultations for couples.
1) We've hit bottom:
This is where the marriage is in great trouble. Things are bad. Communication has hit a wall. Oftentimes, this is actually the end of the relationship. We normally wait far too long to get help and too much damage is done and generally one of the partners has given up and wants out.
And so, at this point, counselling can either be a last stab at fixing the relationship or it is to find a graceful exit for both parties. You can hopefully leave with some understanding and compassion for the other. You can find a safe ground for communicating about the children. You can find kind ways to negotiate the truly difficult challenge of separating your lives.
2) We Just Need a Little Help:
This is where you have a pretty good relationship. You both love each other, you're pretty good at communicating, everybody pulls their own weight, etc... But sometimes things just break down. Sometimes walls go up. Sometimes, things are said that aren't really meant. But once said, damage is done.
This is a very common situation for couples to be in. In fact, most couples spend MOST of their relationship in this stage. The problem is that many of these "little problems" can build into very big problems as the years pass. And one day, things explode and you find yourself in the first category above. Everything has gone on for too long. Things didn't change. Things didn't get better. And now it's too late.
That's why this is the best place time to find counselling. It's the time when there is still enough love on both sides to really make the effort to heal the wounds. It's when both partners still really want to find better ways to communicate with each other. It's the best time to get rid of some old habits and form new ones so that your relationship isn't just good - that it's great!!
This is for those couples who have a great relationship. There's love and trust and communication.
3) We'd like to take what we've got to a New Level!!
Many people sense that we are capable of even more than that. Humans have capacity for phenomenal love and intimacy that is beyond our normal workaday imaginings of "getting along, paying the bills and having a great sex life." We are capable of connections and love that is beyond our understanding.
This is well-described and documented in the ancient art of Tantra. Tantra is about developing true and deep intimacy with others. We experience it the most with our intimate partners of course. But learning how to be completely authentic with anyone effortlessly spills into the rest of our lives - enriching all of our relationships.
This kind of consultation for any couple who would like to take their whole relationship to a new level and explore deeper intimacy with each other.
