    :agree that counseling works best if the person does not feel coerced to be there. Once attended couple counselling with a reluctant partner. In his opinion 'we might as well have put the money we spent on the floor and set fire to it'. Can see why he felt like this. He didn't want to be there, did not want to discuss issues that he felt had no foundation and certainly did not see any need to change the dynamics of our relationship. Was disappointing but the only option for me was to accept how he felt...not agree with it but accept that this was his truth. Needless to say our relationship didn't have a happy ending. We stood too far apart on important matters to be able to work as a functional team. :D

    Also, it might have to do with a struggle for control. Everyone has such great answers. In order for counseling to benefit her she needs to want to be there and feel it’s her choice. It sucks that she went through what she did and I would imagine she may struggle with feeling she is making decisions or having control. Maybe support the positive coping you do so? Is there anything positive she is or can do?
