How to have a Healthy Marriage – Counselors and Therapists in Atlanta, GA

Couples or marriage counseling is a type of talk therapy which aims to encourage better communication and equip spouses or partners with the tools that will allow them to improve their relationship. It is strongly encouraged that both partners attend the counseling sessions – only then can they work together towards finding a solution to their problems. A successful marriage or couples therapy won’t provide one with ready-made answers – on the contrary, the aim of the therapy is to allow the couple to reach conclusions of their own. A counselor is an impartial arbiter who is there to foster constructive communication, teach partners to negotiate, listen to one another and better understand each other’s feelings and views.

Relationship Troubles – When To Seek Help?

Relationship counseling is often seen as a last resort solution for those couples who are on the verge of getting a divorce or separating. However, one doesn’t have to wait until things get so bad before seeking professional help – many couples, in fact, choose to join therapy to prevent future conflicts, to work towards an even healthier and happier relationship or to get ready for their forthcoming marriage or parenthood. On the other side of the spectrum there are couples who are facing serious difficulties – infidelity, conflict over financial issues, lack of agreement over core values and life expectations (e.g. having children) or loss of passion and interest in one another, for example. In these cases, couples or marriage counseling might be of particularly great benefit – allowing partners to settle their conflict or, at times, to part ways in a peaceful manner.

Identifying the right moment to seek professional help is not simple – every relationship is different and some couples might be more successful than others at dealing with their problems alone. Ultimately, it is down to both partners to decide when it is necessary to start marriage or couples counseling – although specialists note that once partners feel that the situation has reached a dead end and no progress can be made, it might be the right moment to do so.

Linda Buie has changed my life!

★★★★★
Linda is amazing!! I had been to a couple of therapists in the past, but never really saw a significant change...Read more

. When I had my first appointment with Linda, she listened intently and took a genuine interest in the struggles I was facing. On the next visit, she had an action plan, complete with visual guides and worksheets for me to complete to really address and work on the issues. Every visit she recalls exactly what we talked about previously and checks in on progress. I can't say enought nice things about Linda. She is caring, genuine, real and tells it like it is, which I love. She has a nice way of delivering information that is constructive and helpful. I am constantly recalling Linda's advice in my every day life and it has helped me tremendously. I truly feel like myself again and it's thanks to Linda's guidance.
