Holy Land Man acts as a knowledgeable mediator and expects the couple to follow his lead. HLM reads GOD's original Bible in GOD's original language. Like Jesus, HLM knows the code2GOD (32 mathematical codes which reveal GOD's messaging to humanity). HLM possesses the divine ability to immediately recognize the couple's issue and stop the hostility.
Faith and trust in GOD and his original Bible.
Holy Land Man is the first human ever to provide the Scientific Proof of GOD (two Patent Pendings) which can be achieved only with connection to the divine. HLM is also the author of the book "Logical Proof Of GOD." HLM reads the original Bible in GOD's language and he understands all the 32 codes of the code2GOD which reveal GOD's messaging to humanity. As such, HLM can "X-RAY" couples immediately for their issue to stop couples' hostility.
The traditional licensed therapist:
Holy Land Man
Holy Land Man believes that each should live their life as they please but he doesn't have the feel and the divine connection when it comes to same-sex couples. Yet, same-sex couples are welcome to observe and apply from HLM's sessions.
You should expect that hostility would stop in the first session provided the couple accepts Holy Land Man as a mediator and follow his instructions.
The sessions are FREE and donations to our nonprofit are welcome based on your any results you feel you have achieved.
Disclaimer: HLM is relying on GOD's guidance, our faith in the original Bible and the sacred code2GOD. It's faith based mediation and counseling.
Our mediation doesn't replace counseling of a license mental health provider which involves therapeutic analysis and insights. Ours is a more practical approach to solving conflict that relies on dispute resolution techniques.
A person who is codependent experiences emotional dependency on a relationship where they feel needed. This typically occurs with a spouse or romantic partner, but codependency can also involve children, parents, or other family members.
The concept of codependency developed around women who supported husbands with alcohol use disorder. These women enabled their spouses to continue drinking by making excuses for their behavior, protecting children or friends from their husband while he was drunk, saving household finances, and shielding their husbands from other repercussions of their substance abuse. While the psychological concept has since been applied to a wider range of relationships, the original relationship model is still one of the most common: One person, who needs to feel depended on to feel loved, supports a person who struggles, often with an addiction of some kind.
A couples retreat is a getaway run by professional counselors or other marriage experts that provides a supportive space for you and your partner to explore and strengthen the relationship. Some retreats may host dozens of couples with large seminars and workshops, and others are smaller and more personalized. The ultimate goal, though, is to help the couples build positive momentum so that they’re motivated to keep working on the relationship when they return home.
You may attend a variety of different activities at a marriage or couples retreat. Counselors may offer a combination of lectures, group discussions, and private couples therapy sessions. You might participate in role plays or other exercises, or you may fill out worksheets or keep a journal to explore your thoughts and feelings during the retreat.
If you’re struggling in your relationship, you may wonder if a couples retreat is worth the time and effort. When you’ve been trying and trying to heal your partnership, it can be difficult not to feel hopeless. However, many couples find that a retreat is a powerful experience that provides opportunities for healing and growth that are hard to achieve in other environments.
Like with all types of counseling, you’ll get out of a couples retreat what you put in. If you and your partner are ready to commit to the experience and are willing to be vulnerable and honest with each other, you can make great progress during the retreat. What’s most important is that you go into the experience with an open mind and an intention of growing closer to your partner.
All relationships are different, so no two couples will have exactly the same journey at a couples retreat. However, there are several key benefits that most couples experience.
Breaking out of your daily routine and experiencing a new location with your partner can be a meaningful experience. When you’re home, you may find yourself preoccupied with work, household tasks, family, or your other responsibilities. Getting away can help you clear your mind.
Exploring a new location provides a chance for you and your partner to grow closer, too. You can talk about what you see, try something new, and enjoy each other’s company away from the stress of everyday life.
Codependency involves sacrificing one’s personal needs to try to meet the needs of others. Someone who is codependent has an extreme focus outside themselves. Their thoughts and actions revolve around other people, such as spouses or relatives.
Codependency often appears in relationships which are unbalanced and unhealthy. A person with codependency often tries to save others from themselves. They may get hurt trying to “cure” a partner’s addictions or abusive behaviors.
Codependency does not qualify as a mental health diagnosis, mostly because the symptoms are so widely applicable. Yet it can still cause severe distress. Codependency may lead a person to develop other mental health concerns such as anxiety. A therapist can help a person reduce codependent behaviors and develop healthier relationships.
In psychology, codependency describes one person’s behaviors and attitudes rather than the relationship as a whole. Someone who is codependent often builds their identity around helping others. They may “depend” on others to validate their self-worth. A codependent person may deny their own desires or emotions to get this approval.
Common symptoms of codependency include:
Not every codependent person will show all these symptoms. But if a person shows many of these traits, they may be codependent.
Family counseling, or family therapy, is a method to develop and maintain healthy and functional family relationships.
The goal is to identify and address problems in the family. These issues could be emotional, psychological, or behavioral.
Many approaches to family therapy stem from family systems theory. This suggests that families work in systems rather than groups of people who function independently of each other.
According to family systems theory, changes in one family member will influence changesTrusted Source in other parts of the family.
The benefits of counseling vary from family to family. They can include:
Research in the Journal of Family Therapy suggests family therapy effectively addresses issues with children, including:
Family counseling can also help people with mental health issues.
A 2020 studyTrusted Source suggests families might find therapy useful for the following reasons:
Marriage and family therapists (MFTs) are trained to provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families in need. MFTs work within the context of relational systems to address a variety of mental, emotional, and relational issues.
Sex therapist Kimberly Resnick Anderson works with couples who have been stuck in sexless marriages for months, years or even decades.
Her recommendation for those who have found themselves in the middle of a serious dry spell? Get help from a professional sooner rather than later.
“Once a couple stops having sex, or more importantly, stops valuing sex as an important part of relationship maintenance, it is a fast and slippery slope into sexual oblivion,” Resnick Anderson, who is also an associate professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, told HuffPost.
Broaching the subject with your partner can be intimidating, especially if you haven’t been feeling particularly connected, sexually or otherwise. A sex therapist can help you find ways to discuss these things openly so you can repair your relationship ― and in the process, your sex life.
“It’s so helpful to have someone there to guide you through these sensitive discussions and give you concrete strategies for getting your sex life back on track,” sex therapist Vanessa Marin, the creator of Finishing School, an online orgasm course for women, told HuffPost. “Once you’ve gotten to a dark place in your relationship, it’s hard to work your way out of it on your own. Being able to ask for help is a huge sign of strength.”
Simply put, Discernment Counseling is a short-term decision making process, lasting anywhere between 1-5 sessions. It has the goal of you both having greater clarity and confidence regarding the future of your marriage, based on a deeper understanding of what brought you to the point where divorce is an option.
Discernment counseling focuses on the problems of “mixed-agenda couples” where one person is the “leaning-in partner”, or the one trying to preserve the marriage, and one person is “leaning out partner”, or the one considering ending the marriage. Thus, since one (or sometimes both) people are considering ending the relationship, they are not quite yet ready for Couples Therapy.
Discernment Counseling helps the couple to determine whether or not they should even try to save the relationship.
Typically conducted by a trained and licensed couples therapist, the couple meets and talks about what happened to their marriage, will discuss their options and the motivations they have, and will come to a decision about the future of their marriage.
This provides each partner with an opportunity to identify and address what is not working in the marriage.
For partners considering leaving the marriage, this provides you an opportunity to be heard, be understood, and talk about what is making you consider leaving (and making you consider staying).
For partners wanting to fix the relationship, this provides you an opportunity to deeply understand what has happened from your spouse’s point of view, and what your spouse needs in order to make this marriage work. Your spouse may ask of you things that you are not willing to do.
Regardless of what is discussed in Discernment Counseling session, it is far better to get the problems out in the open, understood, and discussed. In a study done about reasons for divorce, researchers found that nearly 50% of all people that get divorced later regret their decision.
For many, this regret is because the couple did not fully understand why they got divorced in the first place; they may have had some idea of what the real problems were, but they needed to look a bit more deeply to really discover what the underlying problems were.
This may help them better understand if the problems are best solved by working with divorce professionals, pausing things for a while, or committing to an all-out-effort of couples therapy.
How does Discernment Counseling differ from Couples Counseling?
Couples Counseling is based on the premise that the couple is ready and willing to work on the relationship, identify and address underlying problems, and adopt changes to see desired improvements.
Discernment Counseling, on the other hand, is a short-term process to help the couple determine whether or not they even want to work to improve the marriage. Simply put, it is for couples where one or both partners are not sure they even want to stay together.
In many respects, it looks similar to traditional couple therapy; you work with a therapist, you are protected by the same privacy rules, you meet as a couple (rather than individually). The key difference is that you are deciding what to do with the marriage, rather than committing to improving the marriage.
Sex therapy is a type of psychotherapy that addresses mental health issues and/ or emotional concerns affecting a person’s sexual function, drive, and/or desire for intimacy.
These issues are typically explored with the help of a licensed sex therapist. Some people seek help individually, while others may pursue sex therapy with a romantic partner.
This specialized form of therapy developed in order to help people address concerns related to sexual intimacy. According to Derek Polonsky, a psychiatrist associated with Harvard Medical School, between 35 and 50 percent of people will experience a long-term sexual issue at some point. Thus, while it may not always be easy to bring up the topic of sexual concerns, they are certainly not uncommon.
Individuals can pursue this type of therapy on their own, whether they are single or in a relationship, or with a partner. While many individuals may find it difficult to talk about sex—especially with a professional they do not know well, while their partner is present—sex therapy can often help couples or individuals gain more confidence, restore or improve sexual health, communicate more effectively, and work on achieving a more fulfilling sex life.
In the early days of sex therapy, it was often considered a tool to help individuals repress various forms of what, at the time, was considered “deviant” sexual behavior. Much has changed in the field since then, and today the approach is often recommended to individuals who have issues with intimacy or couples who are seeking to achieve greater sexual enjoyment. Though the topic of sex may still be considered taboo among many couples or individuals, sex therapy can often help people overcome this aversion and address the topic in productive, helpful ways.
A sex therapist is a professional psychologist, therapist, social worker, or physician who offers comprehensive counseling services for people dealing with some type of sexual issue.
Certified sex therapists will hold an advanced degree in counseling, therapy, psychology, or related field; achieve a number of hours of sex therapy training and clinical experience; and be credentialed by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT). An AASECT certification must be renewed every three years.
Choosing the right therapist will depend on the specific situation of the person/people seeking treatment as well as the therapist's area of expertise. Because certification or licensure for sex therapists has yet to be standardized, it is generally a good idea to ask potential therapists about their professional training in human sexuality and the specific issues they are able to address.
A person who chooses to enter sex therapy individually may be more comfortable discussing sexual issues with a therapist of the same gender. However, all sex therapists are trained to address the emotional, physical, and biological issues that can influence sexual activity in men and women. Many sex therapists also help non-binary, transgender, and intersex people address sexual concerns, but some individuals may find it more helpful to work with a therapist who has experience working with people who are not cisgender. A sex therapist should never attempt to change or deny a person’s gender, identity, or sexual orientation, and doing so would be considered a sign of unethical treatment. Further, the issues that bring non-binary, trans, or intersex people to sex therapy may not be in any way related to their identity, and an ethical therapist will not assume this to be the case.
In session, a sex therapist will work to help a person or couple seeking help achieve an improved mental and emotional state in order for them to enjoy a more satisfying sexual experience and/or relationships. Sessions are strictly instructive and verbal, and all exercises and that involve physical contact are performed outside of the session. Sex therapy does not involve having sex with the therapist or being forced to have sexual contact with anyone else. Therapists may, as part of the process, encourage those in treatment to consider participating in certain intimate activities or exercises with their partner, but a person is never made to do so as part of therapy. Sex therapy is largely a mental and emotional reflection of one’s own internal conflicts, concerns, and/or questions about sex.
