Couples Counseling and Therapy in Blacksburg, VA
Every relationship experiences an occasional rough patch. Some common issues that couples experience include:
- money struggles or disagreements
- equality in the relationship
- sexual problems
- drifting apart
- lack of trust
- poor communication
- fear of commitment
- children/parenting disagreements
It is difficult, if not impossible, for people to see themselves or their relationships completely objectively. People often see what their partner is doing and its effects on the relationship. But it is hard to have evaluate their own actions. Instead of pointing fingers, there is a better way to handle conflict within a committed relationship. Many people struggling within their marriage or committed relationship seek the input of a trained, unbiased third party–a couples counselor.
The professionals at Thriveworks Counseling Blacksburg, VA have helped many couples recognize the problems they face and work together toward a solution.
Should You Seek Couples Counseling?
Many relationships face serious difficulties, but others pursue divorce or separation because they have “simply grown apart.” If dissatisfaction, mistrust, or resentment is keeping your relationship from being the rewarding, supportive, and mutually-satisfying, do not wait to get help. Do not let the downward spiral continue. Relationship counseling has a very high success rate.
Couples may wonder if or when it is appropriate to start couples counseling. Are the issues they are experiencing common? Are they just over-reacting or worrying too much? If any issue is impacting their relationship, it is okay for the couple to seek help. Consider these scenarios:
- Has your communication as a couple become mostly negative, or near non-existent?
- Do you feel that your only reason for remaining in the relationship is for the sake of the children?
- Does the prospect of having an affair seem less objectionable, perhaps even justified, lately?
- Has resentment or bitterness become more and more present in the relationship?
- Does divorce or separation seem like the only solution?
- Are you, or is your partner, acting out their negative feelings?
