The Importance of Emotional Safety for Couples in a Relationship

Having a strong emotional connection with your partner in a romantic relationship is extremely important. That means that you not only spend quality time together but that you feel safe enough to share your hopes, fears, pains, and longings. As a Marriage and Family Therapist and Couples therapist in Dubai, I can assure you that being able to count on your partner to be there for you on an emotional level gives you the confidence to deal with any hardships you could face in life. 

What does emotional safety mean?

Emotional safety means the couple can trust one another with their vulnerabilities and can share their authentic self without fear of being rejected. In a secure relationship where there is emotional safety between a couple, they can comfort and soothe each other at times of difficulty. They can also support and encourage each other at times of calmness. Knowing that you can turn to your partner regardless of the situation, the brain and nervous system feel safe, and love blossoms. 

How to create emotional safety in a relationship?

  1. Be fully present and attentive with all your senses when with your partner. This means that you listen with your heart and speak from your heart.
  2.  Listen to understand and not respond. In other words, function from a place of curiosity with zero-judgment.
  3. Have compassion for your partner and shift perspectives to have more empathy. Validating your partner even if you disagree with their point of view builds emotional safety.  

As a Marriage and Family Therapist and a certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist (EFT) based in Dubai, I see how many couples struggle to connect because they do not feel safe together on an emotional level. As a marriage counselor and couples therapist, I can reassure you that emotional connection is key to having a successful marriage.
