Restoring Balance – Benefits of Marriage Counseling

Couples counselling offers many positive results, including enhanced communication, strengthened connection and rekindled intimacy, and opportunities to renegotiate commitments and make decisions. With the right attention, these benefits can lead to lasting improvements in relationships.

Goals of Marriage Counseling

A couples therapy session is not just about identifying your flaws and apologizing – it is about helping to bring out the best in both partners, so that you can build a strong relationship even when there isn’t a therapist available to help.

Together, you have the potential to create an amazing life and be the kind of partners you want to be. As part of this goal, couples therapy seeks to provide clarity on what kind of life you wish to build together, what kind of partners you aspire to be, and what individual blocks are getting in the way of achieving this.

Equipping you with the skills and knowledge needed to create the life you want is the key to making therapy effective.

What to Expect in Your First Session

At the outset of couples therapy, one of our experienced therapists will discuss important matters such as confidentiality and our mandatory reporting policies. We’ll also cover our cancellation policies and techniques used in couples counselling.

During the first session, a brief history of you and your relationship will be taken. We understand that couples who have never had therapy before may feel apprehensive. Our therapists are highly qualified and strive to remain objective when counselling.

It’s not necessary to think too much about the issues you wish to bring up before attending, as our couselors can initiate the conversation by asking the right questions.

Premarital Counseling

Couples therapy is a great way to learn about your partner and create a stronger bond in your relationship. Contrary to popular belief, couples therapy isn’t just for couples experiencing a crisis; it can be a great preventative measure for any couple who wants to gain a deeper understanding of their partner.

In therapy, couples can discuss complex topics in a safe and supportive environment, understanding each other’s feelings and reactions more clearly. This helps them come together with respect and kindness as they work through difficult conversations or disagreements. With the help of an experienced therapist, you and your partner can build strong foundations for your relationship and create an even more loving bond.

Don’t wait until tensions arise; start developing a healthier connection today.

Marriage Counseling vs Individual Therapy

It is essential for couples to work through issues together, however, there may be times when either partner has individual matters that need attention. In those cases, engaging a licensed mental health counselor could be beneficial. 

If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief or any other disorder, it may be beneficial to seek couples counseling in addition to individual therapy.

This combination of treatments can help you gain the tools and learnings from individual sessions that can then be applied within your relationship to further strengthen and build upon your connection.

How much does a couples therapist cost?

Therapy creates a space for you to experience healing and progress in a way that can change your life. But of course, it’s also an investment of both time and finances. When you’re ready to commit to healing and transformation, here is what you can expect.
