What if I have a secret that my husband/wife/partner doesn’t know about, will you keep that confidential too?
Here’s the thing, it’s likely that the secret you are thinking about is part of what’s getting in the way of you both feeling connected and on the same page in your relationship.
We will discuss with you in the first session (if you are coming in as a couple) that we can’t do our job effectively if we are put in the role of secret-keepers throughout your counseling with us.
That being said, if there is a secret that you are holding that you are fearful of disclosing to your partner, counseling is a really good venue to get the support you need to share the secret.
Chances are, it’s going to come to light eventually.
How Counseling Can Help
Counseling can often help minimize the fallout, and help you share in the most productive way possible.
With the help of your therapist, you can disclose what’s going on for you in a way that has the potential to bring you both closer together instead of drive you apart. We respect how hard this process is, and certainly would work with you before we did a disclosure session with the two of you.
