When I first started my practice, I remember reading a statistic about divorce that I found shocking. Over 50% of all marriages in the United States end in divorce.
If you and your spouse are experiencing difficulties, here are some reasons why you should give couples counseling a try:
One of the biggest benefits of seeking counseling is having help in understanding behavioral patterns and how those patterns have a negative impact on your relationships. Whether those patterns are yours as individuals and/or you experience them as a couple. Healing can only begin once patterns have been recognized, understood, and addressed.
Impartial Space for understanding
Couples have often tried to deal with issues based on their own understanding. A couples’ therapist can help couples understand each other in a way that they had not been able to do so in the past. The couples’ therapists also has the clinical skills to help couples uncover root causes of their conflict to help each person in the relationship understand what truly has been holding them back from growing together.
A Safe Space
Couples counseling offers the couple a safe space to be completely open and honest with their feelings. Over time, couples have lost faith in trying to express their true emotions. The Counseling space offers a safe space for truth, raw emotions, and judgement free conversations to happen which help couples through their healing process.
A Place to Rebuild Trust
Many events can happen in a relationship to diminish trust. Once trust is broken in a relationship, the process of rebuilding trust is long, arduous and painful. Although the journey of rebuilding trust is difficult, it is not impossible. Couples rebuild trust in a more effective manner in the counseling process as the clinical professional guides the journey and creates a space to rebuild trust in the relationship.
