Why do some relationships work, and others fail? Why are some couples great at communicating and others not so much? Four main behaviours act as barriers to communication: Criticism, Contempt, Defensiveness and Stonewalling.
Dr John Gottman called them the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. We've put a different spin on them and modernised it. The Four Villains of Communication impact your relationships, marriages and work relationships. These destructive patterns of communication in the way of honest reflection, destroy connection and intimacy and make your relationships bound for disaster.
I came across this handy clip from YouTube and I thought it was really great.
It talks about the 5 signs you are seeing a 'BAD' therapist. This video is complements of Kati Morton. Kati is a family and licensed therapist.
Here are the 5 signs she talks about:
1.) You feel like you have to prove things because they act like they don't believe you.
2.) They don't remember anything you have said from previous sessions.
3.) They allow you to text, email, call, etc anytime you need....and they reply quickly.
4.) You just chat like friends, and don't really do any therapeutic work.
5.) They talk about themselves, A LOT! This is YOUR time, not theirs!
