When a couple starts dating for the first time, it’s normal to experience a period of pure joy and exhilaration known as the “honeymoon period.” As a relationship progresses–perhaps to moving in together, living together, or having children together–though, conflict is normal and expected. While discord in the relationship can feel hopeless, Countryside couples counseling can help. For couples counseling services near you, call Life Insight today.
Through therapy, counseling attempts to resolve interpersonal conflicts within romantic relationships, as well as improve the romantic relationship. This type of therapy is a type of psychotherapy where couples work with a therapist who has experience in marriage and family therapy. A therapist serves as a third party who can help to facilitate conversation between the couple and help each party gain perspective.
Couples counseling is something that couples can seek at any stage in the relationship and for a variety of purposes. Couples may choose to go to therapy before marriage, for example, or years into the relationship. Sometimes, a couple will even spend decades together before turning to therapy.
Sometimes, couples need therapy for help communicating about specific issues, such as a traumatic event or a breach of trust, like an affair. Other times, couples may be experiencing conflict for what appears to be no apparent reason. In many cases, couples turn to therapy as a way to reignite romance and aid intimacy. There is no wrong reason to go to therapy. Even if you feel like all is well and good in your relationship but you want to enhance your ability to communicate with your partner, Countryside couples counseling can help.
During couples therapy, you should expect your therapist to spend some time getting to know each person individually during the first session. After that, you and your therapist will work to identify the root of the problem, as well as set goals for your relationship for what you want out of couples counseling. You’ll also develop a timeline for when you hope to achieve your goals. Throughout the process, you’ll work to develop new skills and patterns of thinking, both in the sessions with the therapist and outside of sessions as homework.
While couples counseling isn’t the be-all-end-all to a healthy relationship, it can be a very positive experience that equips you with important tools and skills for navigating your relationship in a healthy way.
Attending Countryside couples counseling may be one of the best things that you ever do for your relationship.
