 Improve your communication skills at Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa Fl, and Brandon Fl.

Being able to communicate is one of the “three C’s” of intimacy.  All effective couples therapies in Tampa FL, and Brandon Fl, focus on helping the partners to communicate more effectively. This communication should not be abusive, nor should partners ridicule each other when they do express their true feelings. Couples may, therefore, require “coaching” to learn how to speak to each other in more supportive and understanding ways. The therapist at Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa Fl, and Brandon Fl, may also provide the couple with didactic instruction to give them the basis for knowing what types of communication are effective and what types will only cause more conflict. They can learn how to listen more actively and empathically, for example. However, exactly how to accomplish this step requires that therapists in Tampa Fl, and Brandon Fl, turn back to the assessments they performed early on in treatment. Couples with a long history of mutual criticism may require a different approach than those who try to avoid conflict at all costs.
