Couples Counseling

Couples Counseling

Most people think that counseling is performed on a one to one basis. Client states problems or concerns and the therapist enters into a one-to-one-relationship with the client. However, there are times when it is essential to have another person in the counseling relationship and that is true.

If the person is married, then it is critical for the spouse to be involved in the counseling experience. If the client has a significant other and lives with that person or has strong ties to the other, then it is also essential for the two parties to be present in therapy.

Proper communication, or to learn to communicate with each other is first and foremost in a couples type of counseling. To carefully open the other to problems or issues that can block communication can only prevent the couple from advancing or the problem will destroy the relationship.

Couples counseling is Depthful, Fun, a Challenge, and an opening to how each other feels about the other. This process is performed in the safe environment of the counseling office and the therapists assist the couple in understanding the other more fully. Love that has been questioned by each other is usually strengthened in the process.

Marriage Counseling
In marital counseling the couple along with a therapist discuss issues that are causing problems in their relationship. It could be as minor as who squeezes the toothpaste from the middle of the tube, or as major as an affair that sends a relationship into turmoil. In a sense, a wedge was or is created that needs to be talked through before the couple can go back to a healthy balance. In doing so, the wedge is removed and the couple can go back to a healthier state of interaction.
