Communicating effectively with others is something that most people do every day without thinking. Getting our ideas across to express ourselves when a relationship is going well can be a smooth process. However, sometimes we experience challenges with how our communication is experienced by others, particularly in close relationships such as with family members, significant others, or friends. It is common to keep falling into a negative cycle of ineffective communication, and feel stuck without knowing how to change it. There is hope for you and your relationship! As a skilled and compassionate counselor, Egypciel can help you and/or your significant other to identify what these patterns are, and help you find more positive ways of being and relating.

1. Verbal Messages – “what” we say with our words
2. Paraverbal Messages – “how” we say it
3. Nonverbal Messages - our body language
