Starting Couples therapy

What is Couples therapy?

Thriveworks Couples therapy helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. It is led by licensed professionals — often licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) — who are experts in their field and best-equipped to help couples. Some examples of common focuses within couples therapy include:

  • Jealousy
  • Trust issues
  • Infidelity
  • Opposing values
  • Different visions for the future
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Lack of trust
  • Financial distress
  • Sex issues

How does Couples therapy work?

Couples therapy works by helping couples identify and better navigate their unique challenges. Following an initial assessment of the couple in terms of strengths and needs, the therapist would then discuss their therapeutic goals and any possible approaches or ways of working together as therapist and couple.
Couples attend sessions together, whether they meet in person or by video. In addition to regular couples therapy sessions, each partner may also be asked to attend a few individual sessions to supplement their progress. This will allow their counselor to get to know each individual better, assess each of their personal needs, and develop the very best treatment plan moving forward.

Is Couples therapy conducted in person or online?

Couples therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does Couples therapy last?

On average, couples attend couples therapy for 12 weeks. However, couples therapy may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples' needs, the challenges they'd like to work through, and the pace of their progress.

Need more help deciding?

Many of us subscribe to the idea that the “right” relationship will not fall short of perfect. That when we find “the one,” we won’t fight or bicker; we’d never question the validity or strength of the relationship; that life together will be easy. While this is a wonderful idea, it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Our most important relationships, especially those with our partner, are challenging by nature. You will clash and you will argue and you will really hurt each other at times—but that’s okay. In fact, these challenges often have a way of bringing us closer together.

“We can improve our relationships with others by leaps and bounds if we become encouragers instead of critics.” –Joyce Meyer

That said, sometimes working through the challenges we encounter in our romantic relationships proves difficult. We might try our best to talk through a disagreement and compromise along the way—but we fall short of resolving the conflict. In these instances, working with a relationship expert can prove valuable.

Thriveworks Counseling in Attleboro, MA has a team of relationship experts. In addition to our couples therapists, we have marriage counselors and premarital counselors, all of whom have valuable relationship skills and experience. Our couples therapists are capable of helping couples at all stages of their relationship. They can help you if you and your partner are newly dating, if you’re engaged, or if you’re married! Regardless, they can help you work through your unique relationship issues and improve the overall strength of your relationship. If you want to schedule a couples therapy appointment at Thriveworks in Attleboro, just call our office.

How Can Couples Therapy Help?

In most areas of life, we don’t shy away from asking for help when we need it—say, when we can’t find something at the grocery store or we’re lost and need directions. Or, even when we’re suffering physically, from an injury or illness. In these instances, we reach out and appreciate the help that we are given. But the same can’t be said when we run into relationship trouble. Instead of asking for a little help and guidance, we usually keep these problems to ourselves and insist on figuring it out with our partner and our partner only. In reality, “any couple who believes they are encountering roadblocks for a healthy and supportive relationship should consider meeting with a couples therapist,” explains Oren Shtayermman, PhD, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker at the Attleboro office. “The presenting issue may be work-related or about child-rearing and in most cases, it is grounded in communication, perception, and cognitive understanding of what the other person is saying. Meeting with a clinician can help sort any confusion or challenge in a supportive and healthy environment with no bias attached.”

In a nutshell, a couples therapist can provide you with valuable guidance that helps you work through your relationship issues and improve your overall relationship. They will not judge you and your partner for whatever it is you’re going through. They understand, perhaps better than anybody else, that relationships aren’t always pretty. They will focus their efforts on helping you clear the hurdle that’s in front of you. In addition, depending on your relationship dynamic and, your couples therapist might also help you to:

  • Improve means of communication
  • Manage unrealistic relationship expectations
  • Have tough, but important conversations
  • Develop an action plan for future issues
  • Better express your love and care for each other

The couples therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Attleboro, MA would be honored to help you navigate your relationship, whether you’re in a new or long-lasting relationship. They have essential skills and tools that they will work to pass on to you, which will further strengthen your relationship for years to come.
