Have you found that you and your spouse are having difficulty getting along? Are you constantly arguing over the same issues with no resolution?
If so, this is something that is completely normal in many marriages and relationships today. You and your spouse are not the same person, so it is only natural that you will not see eye-to-eye in every single situation. However, if you continue to have the same argument over again, then you may want to consider couple’s therapy. Couples therapy helps two people improve their communication and compromising skills so that they can heal their romantic relationship. At All About You Therapy Services, we want to help you navigate those difficulties in your marriage. We will not judge as we help you work through your problems.
How Can Couples Therapy Help Me?
Oftentimes, people think that couples counseling is the last resort, before separating from their partner, however it does not and should not be the last option. Every couple could benefit from couples counseling as the skills that are learned will continually help to grow and strengthen the current relationship. In couples counseling, there are many issues that can be identified. Some of the benefits that are associated with couples counseling include:
Couples Counseling can help improve your relationship with your partner.
Understanding the Relationship Dynamic
One of the most important things that couples counseling can do for your relationship is to help you and your partner better understand the dynamic of the relationship. It can help couples better understand who has the power in the relationship and if that power is balanced. It allows couples to examine their communication styles and any issues that frequently occur within the relationship. As couples can see and recognize these dynamics, they will be able to prevent and combat arguments that frequently occur.
Receiving Unbiased Feedback
Another great benefit of having a couple’s therapist is having someone that both parties in the relationship can trust. As the therapist listens to the problems in the relationship, they can give objective feedback that will not be skewed by bias. One of the common problems in relationships is that there is bias going one way or another. A great way to get these problems solved is to receive feedback that comes from an unbiased party. The therapist will take the time to listen to both sides of the story and will then give feedback based on what they are hearing from both sides.
Learn Coping Mechanisms
No relationship is perfect, and despite your best efforts, there will be times when you trigger your partner and times when your partner triggers you. Being prepared with coping mechanisms that are healthy and allow you to work through your triggers with your partner is one of the most valuable things that you can do for your relationship. These coping mechanisms will help you learn the skills needed to navigate strong emotions such as anger, stress, grief, or any other emotions that may be a roadblock in your relationship.
Improve Communication Skills
Communication is a skill that is essential in any type of relationship that you have, but especially in a romantic relationship. Oftentimes communicating is something that is difficult for couples to do. But it is something that must happen for relationships to work in the long run. Your therapist may give you and your partner different communication exercises that you will do together in order to build upon the communication skills that you already have. Learning how to effectively communicate is something that will not just help your romantic relationship but will help in all the relationships in your life.
One of the most common problems in relationships is that the trust of one partner has been broken. It is extremely difficult to rebuild this trust alone. With the help of a therapist, you can rebuild the trust that may have been lost. Going to therapy allows for a safe space for the couple to verbalize the loss of trust that occurred, can discuss why it happened and can plan together to help rebuild the trust that had been lost. Building back trust is something that can be extremely difficult, but it is not impossible. With the help of therapy, you can have access to the things that are needed to rebuild a strong foundation for a relationship that lost trust.
You can get help for your relationship.
Is Couples Counseling Effective?
Some people are under the impression that they do not need couples counseling, or that it will not help them in their situation. However, that is so far from the truth. Couples counseling will teach skills that are not only meant to help you presently during your relationship struggles, but if applied, these skills can help you throughout your whole lifetime. Many couples report not only improvements in their romantic relationship with one another, but also improvements in their communication skills, conflict management skills, and setting boundaries in every aspect of their lives. If you are wanting to continually improve upon your romantic relationship, then couples counseling may prove to be effective for you.
