For many couples being engaged can be an exciting, but nerve racking time. It is one of the first steps to making an enormous commitment and can lead many couples into a crisis, not sure if they can settle for the relationship as it is. Other couples are very happy with their relationship and would just like premarital counseling to help them go into marriage with tools and knowledge to lead towards success.
At the Bay Area Center for Couples Therapy, we work with engaged couples who are in distress and couples who are interested in premarital counseling so they have the tools and knowledge to have a successful relationship. At the Bay Area Center for Couples Therapy, we work with our couples using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), a highly effective form of couples therapy. When a relationship is going well, you feel you can turn to your partner and they will be there for you as well as feeling loved and accepted by your partner. When relationships aren't going well, we may feel like our partner isn't there for us when we turn to them to discuss our needs or when we need them for support. We may not even feel like they really love or accept us. With EFT, we can help change this as well as help you develop tools for communication.
