When clients come to see me about their relationships, the number one problem I hear is they feel disconnected from their partner and they are lacking effective communication. When there is a breakdown in communication, it is common to feel unheard and disrespected. Specifically with my clients working through infidelity, I often hear feelings of betrayal and grieving the loss of trust.

In my experience, one of the first tools that can help relationships struggling with communication is creating a shared language with definitions of words that are said with one meaning and heard with another. It’s important for partners to feel like they are able to say what they mean and feel heard. Developing the ability to communicate in a different way can help partners have conversations they never thought they could have, learning to understand each other on a level previously unreached. Being able to communicate more effectively has helped partners develop a deeper appreciation for each other and get to know each other in new and exciting ways.
