WHAT IS COUPLES COUNSELING?

GOALS OF COUPLES COUNSELING

Different counselors will practice different approaches to couples counseling. Some therapist specialize in couples counseling and follow a structured format for resolution. Overall a competent couple’s therapist will help you: 

  1. Learn effective communication.
  2. Change unhealthy behavior patterns.
  3. Increase intimacy through shared experiences.
  4. A better understanding of each other’s needs.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW IN COUPLES COUNSELING

It is not advised for both individuals to see the same therapist for personal therapy. When there is underlying issues, separate from the couple issues, that need to be resolved it is suggested that the individual needing the extra help find a different therapist. Your partner does not need to know everything in your past and only share when you feel comfortable with your past. Pre-mature disclosure can have a negative impact on the relationship. A competent couples counselor will be able to give you direction regarding self-disclosure.
