counselling
I do not know whether to insist that my husband attend counselling with a psychologist with me (communication breakdown), to attend alone or to leave it. Since finally agreeing to go to counselling he has been remarkably well-mannered and a whole lot easier to get on with, although we still have misunderstandings from time to time.

Firstly, encourage him to attend by commenting fondly on how greatly you appreciate this, and how much more you enjoy being with him since he began to go to counselling. Usuall, joint attendance is best, but your counsellor / psychologist can advise whether there could be extra value for either or both of you to also have some sessions alone.
