What is an emotional connection in a relationship and how does couples therapy help?
An emotional connection in a relationship is a mutual feeling of alignment that surpasses physical attraction and bonds two people. You know when you have an emotional connection with a person when being in their presence makes you feel safe, valued, happy, and you enjoy each others company outside of physical intimacy.
Some couples have recognized that this emotional connection that they once had may have diminished yet the love for each other is still there. This is where couples therapy can help. Working with a licensed marriage and family therapist that specializes working with couples can assist the partnership in identifying what has changed in the partnership and how to rekindle that spark. We work collaboratively to address the barriers in the reduction of the emotional connection to get you both bonding and making time to enjoy each others company. By participating in couples counseling in Campbell, CA you will show your commitment to improving and strengthening your relationship and marriage.
You love them but you can't always connect with them
Is your romantic relationship lacking the spark you used to have?
Reduced emotional connection does not mean the relationship is over, it just means that this relationship/marriage needs a little more work. Think about what actually works in the partnership and what initially attracted you to your partner. Sometimes our own personal struggles with work, anxiety, depression, addiction, raising children, grief and loss, etc. can take a toll on our mental health which then can negatively impact the emotional connection that you once felt towards your person, but couples therapy in Campbell, CA can help.
As the trust and understanding between you both grows, the emotional intimacy will become stronger, leading to greater connection and satisfaction in your relationship.
