Counselling - does it work?

Just that, really. My relationship has not been the same with dp since he had an EA a couple of years ago. Is it a good idea to try counselling again? what are people's experiences/recommendations?

I meant to add - if dp doesn't want counselling, is it worth me going on my own, and learning different ways of talking to him/behaving towards him?

I think you should look into the reasons DP won't participate in counselling. The point of couples counselling is to draw out experiences in a structured and formative setting with the aim of reconciliation. Counselling on your own might give you enlightenment, but that's its limit. IMO.
