There are a lot of misconceptions about couples who go to counseling together. Many people see it as a last ditch effort for a failing marriage, but nothing could be further from the truth. Relationship counseling is not only for those who are struggling with serious problems. Instead, most couples can find serious benefits to couples therapy at various points in their relationship.
Relationship counseling is a great way to keep your relationship strong no matter how long you have been together. I see many patients who come in for a yearly marital check-up to discuss how their relationship is going. They use this time to discuss any problem areas that they’re experiencing, identify strategies to move forward and prevent further problems and to seek an understanding ear.
Others come to see me to prevent any brewing problems from turning into more serious ones down the road. The earlier that a couple seeks help, the better their chances of coming out stronger on the other side. This goes for all kinds of issues, such as:
- Sexual Issues
Seeking the assistance of a therapist can help you to grow in your relationship and nurture trust and solid communication. Working on you relationship to make sure it stays healthy should never be a source of shame. Making sure that you and your partner show a commitment to the health of your relationship, something that every couple should focus on.
If you and your partner want to make sure that the foundation of your relationship stays steady, consider contacting me. While many couples wait until there are big issues in their relationship, couples counseling can help to improve your partnership no matter what is going on.
