Couples therapy is one of the most common therapy practices because most relationships need a gentle nudge back on their path every now and again. Whether your relationship is new, navigating life changes, or on the brink of divorce, couples therapy is the right step for any couple hoping to mend their relationship and grow stronger together.
At Mind and Body Counseling Associates, our therapists are trained to support couples in crisis or looking to enhance your relationship connection. We teach you and your partner how to develop better communication and conflict management skills. We also bridge the divide where your communication falters, and secure you with the tools to move forward stronger than before.
Oftentimes couples don’t seek out help until up to five years after they begin to experience trouble. As a result, steering the relationship back on track becomes harder than it needs to be. We recommend finding a couples therapist as soon as possible to begin the rebuilding process.
Sometimes one or both partners come to couples therapy expecting to see significant improvement, or even a solution, after just a couple of sessions. While couples therapy can empower your relationship, help you heal and even offer you the tools to thrive together, it takes time – as all good things do. Remember, if it took years to develop these difficulties, it will take some time to improve these interactions.
It is quite common for one or both partners in a relationship to not be fully committed to the therapy process. At Mind and Body, your therapist can advise whether you should do individual therapy sessions first to help each of you discern whether you are ready and willing to work on the relationship or not.
