Can Couples Therapy Help You?

You love your partner more than you’ve ever loved anyone else, but you find that recently you’re having some problems. It started off as arguments that seemed to escalate quicker and quicker. Then, it began to manifest itself in the form of avoiding big issues and an increase in emotional avoidance. Finally, the communication between the two of you has decreased and you spend more nights feeling lonely and forlorn than you can ever remember. You’re feeling at a loss of what to do to reconnect with your significant other. While searching for the answers to help your relationship, you come across couples counseling.

As a counseling center, we’ve seen many different people go through situations that make a dent in the relationship. Relationships take work, you need to learn how to give and take. It can be disheartening to watch a relationship with a loved one fall apart due to communication, infidelity, financial issues, sexual dissatisfaction, or even restlessness. Working on your relationship will take work and patience, but if you have the desire and the drive to form a stronger connection between the two of you, then our facility can help. By coming to couples therapy, you are choosing to work on your relationship in a neutral setting.

What Is Couples Therapy?

Couples therapy is an exploration of conflicts, issues, and difficulties that are muddling your relationship. Every relationship has its ups and downs and by coming to couples therapy you’re addressing your issues head on in a setting that’s neutral and healthy. You’re taking a positive and motivational step toward navigating through your issues, despite the painful discussions that may arise. When you come to couples therapy, you’re focusing on what has driven you apart or what is keeping you from moving forward. Couples therapy can be difficult, emotionally draining, and cause disagreements and distress; however, it’s a step toward focusing on your relationship, learning how you can be more supportive of each other, and how you can navigate your emotions. By collaborating with a neutral party, you’re able to work toward an understanding of your relationship. Most couples come to couples counseling when they are on the verge of a divorce or a split, but if you feel yourself floundering, then couples counseling is a good way to reset your intentions toward one another.
