My H and I have been to three sessions with a therapist together. The first session was a disaster. We talked about issues surrounding the affair and when we got home, my H was so mad that I made the session about the affair. He said he wanted to work on our own issues. So the next session, we talked through ways that we would be taking care of ourselves as we heal. This has helped us hold each other to our plans and work on taking better care of ourselves. The last visit was another disaster. It was filled with frustration and left a lot of things hanging. So now my H doesn't want to go to counseling anymore. He says it isn't helpful for him. But at the same time, I don't feel like we have started to address the issues in our own relationship that need help. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to approach this in our couples sessions in a different way? Is it possible that couples counseling just doesn't work for us?
