Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry

Counseling for Everyone

1/31/2012 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have been urged to get some serious counseling for the benefit of Nahla, but their marathon court hearing today was contentious and largely unproductive ... law enforcement sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

We've learned the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services submitted more than a dozen recommendations to the judge, including mediation ... in which a 3rd party would sit with Halle and Gabriel and try to figure out how they can peacefully raise their child.  We're told Halle was receptive but Gabriel wasn't.

And our sources say ... Halle agreed to continue her individual counseling, which will help her deal with what has become an impossible situation.

As for Gabriel, he's agreed to counseling for his anger issues.

And, as we first reported, both parties agreed today to send 3-year-old Nahla to counseling.

We're told the judge did not make any decision on the fate of the nanny, whom Gabriel wants fired.

And the judge hasn't ruled on Halle's request to keep Gabriel from Nahla until the child endangerment investigation runs its course.

Sources say Gabriel has objected to most of the recommendations and the judge is on the verge of holding a full hearing -- similar to a trial -- so he can firmly call the shots.

im sure he rejected because he knows it is a no win therapy in the world will make her change her mind about strong arming the kid from him

The last time Aubry was agreeable in court he ended up with a nanny he didn't want. I don't blame him for being cautious this time out. BTW, if Halle were such a great mother, her kid wouldn't need counseling at 3 and she wouldn't need parenting classes.

Why is everyone blaming Halle for Gabriel's anger? Gabriel is responsible for his own behavior. He's only showing that Halle has every right to be concerned about Nahla being in his care. Halle has done some messed up things in life but his d****bag behavior is only telling everyone that Halle truly was the victim in this whole relationship.
Nahla would be better off without this angry man in her life. If he doesn't want to play by the rules then he should have been wrapping it up in the first place.

When was the last time Gabriel Aubry actually earned his own paycheck? Seperate from Halle Berry's, who is his meal ticket. He's the male version of Ox. Using his little girl for money leverage. Goes both ways.

Berry and Aubry can hate each others guts for whatever...keep your little daughter out of it.

He sounds like a deadbeat to me. Does he even pay child support? I'm thinking his daughter is better off. I would advocate Halle sending him a check to stay away, men like him are useless anyways.

Unbelievable. This guy is such an a**hole! He's just pissed that he can't control Halle anymore. That he can't get her for leaving him and the fact she has what he thinks is "his" property and loves it more than him, it just burns him up. He's using the child to get back at her for every little bit of happiness she has without him anymore. That child is nothing but a pawn to him. He's using the child as leverage against her. He's a piece of trash and i hope he loses custody outright. Which wont mean anything to him if he does.....because he doesn't give a fiddler's damn about that baby anyway. So it wouldn't even matter to him if he lost custody. He just doesn't want to lose against matter what the prize. He's just trash.

Gabriel seems to enjoy using the child against Halle. He causes a stir when she has to travel for movies. If the judge fires this Nanny then all nannies will put up with his bullying in fear of losing their job if they complain about his abuse.

This judge like the judge last week didnt see any need to separate Aubry from his kid and he didnt rule on the motion today. If Aubry was a danger to his kid, the judge would have granted Halle's motion today. Another week has gone by and none of what has been submitted has made 2 different judges stop this man from having contact with his child. That tells me all I need to know. The issue here seems to be the parent's animosity towards each other and that was the obvious cause of this filing by Halle. That is why the court is focusing on counseling for the family and coparenting so that it doesnt have to deal with these frivolous motions in the future. I understand Aubry wanting the nanny fired no parent wants someone who has issues with them looking after their child. How does that even work? how can he communicate with her again when he doesnt know how she will inteprete what he says? As for Halle she filed this motion to get rid of her baby's father and instead her 3 yr old has to go for counseling and the attorneys got good billable hours. Lets hope they all get counseling so that they can learn how to coparent and stop running to court everytime there is an issue.

Gabriel, this is coming from the hood, hide your tape in a safe, so the crazy women can't steal it, you know the one of her sceaming, just so judge can hear her being nuts, and collect evidence on her and don't let her get to you. we all know she was and is still mentally ill. RUN RUN RUN BUT TAKE YOUR KID WITH YOU. ALL THE OTHER MEN RAN.

Hey TMZ stop posting stories that are on Halle's side since they are from Halle's camp like this one because you are alienating your readers since most people are on Gabriel's side as you can tell from the comments idiots!

I'm not surprised Gabriel isn't receptive because that psycho biotch is the one causing problems and he shouldn't be penalized for her mental retardation. It's sad that Nahla has to be in counseling, but that's on her mother. Don't trust that skank, Gabe! She's got nothing but malice in her heart.

ACCORDING TO ONE OF THE POSTS, Halle Berry is NOT the biological mother of this little girl. IF that is true, this bombshell has the potential of turning into quite a scandal. Keep watching!
