The high divorce rate in the society makes couples counseling a necessity. It helps partners to resolve their issues and not end relationships. Some people give up a long-term relationship due to difficult problems they can’t solve. Couples Counseling focuses on teaching people how to resolve their conflicts and improve their communication. Because of their ignorance, pride or inability to pay for it, couples often avoid getting counseling. However, couples counselling has proven to be a very effective tool.
In the beginning, relationships are wonderful. But over time they may lose spark, drift or become boring. Arguments can be repeated and there can also be a sense that something is missing. In couples counselling, according to the research we have done, 75% of couples feel their relationship is improving and around 65% believe that it has made a “significant difference”. That’s quite a large number!
Couples Counseling is meant to empower partners to take positive steps individually or together. It is not uncommon for couples to feel unhappy and then decide to split up instead of trying to figure out what the problem really is. A relationship can improve if you find and address the root or causes. But if there is no effort made to investigate, your relationship might fail.
Couples counseling will facilitate honest, open communication. It is vital to be able to tell your partner what’s on your mind. In the example above, if one partner is upset and angry that their partner does no spend time with them but does not tell her partner, she denies him the chance of changing this. You may have no idea if he’s neglecting to spend time with you or if she is demanding more attention than what he can give.
A relationship requires a significant amount of work. Couples counseling can help give you the right tools for improving your relationship. They can help you identify what’s wrong, and then assist you with finding possible solutions. This can help you see the underlying patterns of negative behavior in your relationship. They will serve as a facilitator for you to have a happy relationship.
