Couples Mediation Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Tucson, AZ

In many relationships there’s a point at which you can’t imagine the kind of shocking disagreements you are having with your Significant Other. It seems almost unbelievable to go from the loving, “can’t keep your hands off each other” way of being, to this descent into pettiness and pride. You may be noticing that:

  • It seems like you are speaking different languages
  • The same argument/issue seems to come up over and over again, with no resolution
  • You bicker or “pick on each other” a lot
  • You withdraw more than try to work things through
  • You are not on the same page about sex
  • You have different views about money
  • Your arguments are getting more bitter
  • Something from the past that seemed resolved, is suddenly back in the conflict
  • You want different things out of your relationship
  • There seems to be way more emphasis on your differences, instead of commonalities

If you let any number of these symptoms go to far, they will do lasting damage to the most important component in any relationship: trust. Soon you may start wondering that the only way to break through some of these is to have an impartial 3rd party, who can listen, make sense of what is going on and start to guide you both back to “sanity.” Whether you are on the brink of divorce or just feel completely unable to move past some major roadblocks, Mediation therapy can help.

With the goal of helping couples view their relationship dynamics from clearer, more objective perspective so that they can sidestep the power struggle and focus on their true intentions, Mediation therapy includes a powerful blend of:

  • Education on communication
  • Attention to the couple’s agenda
  • Exercises to help gain a rational overview of the relationship dynamic
  • The sharing of strong emotions in a safe environment
  • Negotiation of the conflict(s)
  • Assertiveness education
  • Conflict resolution skills
  • Decision-making skills
  • Effective disagreement
  • Strategies that help the couple take a rational overview

This combination of education/intervention helps the individuals in the relationship let go of denial and distortions they may not have known they had about themselves, their partner and the relationship. Once these distortions begin to fade, the relationship dynamics can be more clearly seen for what they are and the ability to understand what each person really wants & needs is possible. This opens the door for the couple to understand and support their partner and the relationship in a whole new way, as each is able to approach their wants/needs in a healthy manner. This is the beginning of a solid, healthy long-term relationship with a clear direction.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling with their relationship, feel free to reach out to us at Thriveworks Tucson. We have numerous clinicians on site that can guide you and the relationship, out of the darkness.
