Couples psychotherapy is meant to help partners gain insight into their interactions, in an effort to better understand what may be contributing to continued patterns of conflict and distress in their romantic relationship.
Couples therapy can be helpful in identifying negative communication patterns, differences in values and beliefs, and challenges in your relationship that are affected by different factors such as work issues, a new baby, intimacy, infidelity or emotional concerns such as anxiety, depression, or substance abuse. Additionally, couples therapy can also be useful in identifying healthier ways to end a relationship or marriage.
However, couples therapy is not just for relationships that are in “trouble.” Therapy can be a proactive tool to help couples learn to communicate effectively early in the relationship and prevent major issues in the future. Through couples therapy, couples can address those “small” issues in a constructive manner, learn how to soothe each other, discuss and hear each other’s fears, cultivate a deeper sense of respect and love for each other, and so much more.
While couples therapy can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience— and an opportunity to reconnect with your partner— it is not a “quick fix” and requires continued awareness and work for long-term change.
