How can i encourage a partner to come to counselling a couple of times to hear another perspective and understand, accept and work around each others needs more
and so both can be happier and more relaxed with more needs met.
My partner gets very anxious and refuses to go . I can go to explain a situation but he needs to come sometimes ideally to hear another perspective said by someone else, especially if its someone who hasnt really ever lived with anyone before.

It's a tough one when they really don't want to, are scared to, don't have the commitment or the vision you do. We managed a few times, I can't remember how, but things were on the verge. All I can say is maybe tell him it's a make or break if that's how you feel, or ask him to do it for you, that its you who needs to benefit from this with him, it may take the pressure off him being the focus. Like he's coming to support you, (because hey, let's face it, god forbid something is ever wrong with them) or emphasise the saving of relationship? G luck!

I talked my DH into it and now admits it was the best thing we did. Tell him its important to you and it matter s to you and you'd like him to respect that. Also as PP said tell him its to support you while you go. Really, I think a marriage is considering counciling its usually needed.
