We Were Crazy In Love..
We Were Crazy In Love, And Had Only Been Together A Few Months
We had an idea that couples therapy was only for couples with big problems.. So when one of us had started with individual therapy and wanted to take her partner in after recommendation from the psychologist, we were initially very skeptical. We were crazy in love, and had only been together a few months. We thought we probably would not need “something like therapy”.
The first hour we were on seemed to start very exciting but also a little scary doing it together. However, we were open and curious about what we would get out of it early and found what we wanted to talk about.
With the help of the psychologist, it was easy and safe to carry the conversation further. We got help to open ourselves to each other and share the things that we knew were important or didn´t even knew that we knew! Couples therapy was so much more rewarding than we ever thought it would be.
During the therapy we got help to put into words our minds, to question our behavior and patterns of acting out with each other and understand the other party’s situation. The psychologist has helped us to ensure that both our needs have been heard and met while working through the problems that have arisen, regardless of what / who caused the situation. It has given us a nice balance in our relationship where we have learned to always look to both their needs.
We have now gone into partner therapy in around a year’s time. This year has developed our relationship and ourselves enormously. We have received guidance and inspiration to talk to each other in an honest manner and also understand how important it is to be open with what we know to talk to each other in an honest manner and also understand how important it is to be open with how we are feeling towards each other and ourselves as well.
Because we started so early in our relationship with the couples therapy, we feel we now have a solid foundation to stand on. We now have the tools we need to solve things on our own. We know each other, but above all ourselves. We understand why we act as we do and therefore we can prevent problems.
Whatever we have addressed in couples therapy, we always felt we were understood and our psychologist always addressed our our respective needs and that without judging us. It has allowed us to dare to be fully honest in the sessions, which has made us confident both in therapy and in everyday life.
We still have periods that are very good but also bad. We know that we still have things to work on, but with the help we have received, we feel now both stable and secure in knowing that we can always solve everything as it comes!
We (couple) are very pleased to have you (Krisztina Lurås) as our psychologist.
