Couples and Relationship Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Birmingham
For some reason there is this horrible misconception in society today that going to couples counseling means that the end of one’s marriage looms large. But realistically, we all know this is no truer about a marriage than it is to say that just because a person visits an accountant they are on the verge of bankruptcy.
We all know that this simply isn’t true in life. While, indeed, many couples do seek couples counseling to help them overcome problems, many also seek counseling so that they can move their good marriage or romantic partnership into a great one. So they can be better equipped to address latent problems that may be festering, or even perhaps to maintain an already healthy relationshiop. Frankly, both reasons should be applauded.
Thriveworks Birmingham Couples Counseling Will Help You Confront the Problem
At Thriveworks Birmingham, our couples counselors can help you and your spouse cut straight to the source of whatever the problem may be, not just treat the symptoms. Whether that problem or hindrance in your marriage is seemingly talking past each other, maybe looking for things to fight about, a breached trust, competing careers, or perhaps insecurity about the past or future — a Thriveworks couples counselor can help.
The fact of the matter is you’re not alone in struggling with addressing these problems in your marriage. Indeed, these are among the most common reasons for strife and divorce in modern marriages. But as much as these are truly common problems, for no couple is immune from difficulty — they are all solvable problems.
Perhaps you and your partner are plagued by some other problem. It may be something as simple as needing help developing a parenting strategy, or it may be something unspeakable. The point is, that no matter the problem you may have or the depth of despair you feel, you can overcome it; and a Thriveworks Birmingham counselor can help you do it.
It’s not that your problem isn’t serious; it’s that with the help of a couples counselor, whatever you are struggling with can be overcome. Simply put, you’re not alone in whatever you are struggling with, so you shouldn’t have identify and overcome them by yourself either.
If we honestly assess our relationships, there isn’t one among us who wouldn’t realize that there is room for improvement, growth, and development. Now, of course it’s a lot easier to stay right where we are in our comfortable patterns of bad habits and act like our relationships aren’t being stifled or hindered — to just sweep the problem under the rug. You and your spouse might even have some unspoken agreement to not mention whatever the problem is. But if we are honest with ourselves, we all know that that isn’t right, and that we aren’t happy with the status quo.
The truth is it takes courage to admit that relationships aren’t easy. And even more to actually act on that admission. But oh, how sweet the reward of simple, open communication. The path to growth is never easy — and it may be full of apparently daunting obstacles. But just like everything else in life, our relationship problems can be easily overcome if we rely on a trustworthy guide.
