Unfortunately, many view marriage counseling as a last resort; or, they think that signing up for marriage counseling will make their relationship look weak. These statements couldn’t be farther from the truth. Marriage counseling is an opportunity to improve your relationship with your spouse—it does not reflect weakness, but strength.

What Is Marriage Counseling?
Marriage counseling is a form of psychotherapy that helps couples work through conflicts and in turn improve their relationship. Here at Thriveworks in Attleboro, our marriage counselors provide their clients with a safe space to talk about what’s bothering them or what’s negatively affecting their relationship.

Who Is Marriage Counseling For? Do We Need Relationship Help?
Here at Thriveworks, we strongly believe that anyone can benefit from partnering up with a skilled and caring mental health professional. If there is room for improvement in your marriage, marriage counseling might be the right form of therapy for you! Marriage counseling could prove especially beneficial if you and your spouse have one (or more) of the following problems:
- You have the same arguments and to no avail: If you find that you and your spouse keep having the same arguments over and over again, there is likely a larger issue at play here. A marriage counselor can help you explore these arguments and get to the real root of the problem.
- You have disagreements in parenting: If you and your spouse disagree about parenting styles or techniques, it can be hard to determine the right way forward. A marriage counselor can help you discuss your parenting differences so that you better understand each other’s approach and determine the best approach with your child.
- You are struggling with intimacy or sex issues: Often, a lack of sex means a lack of connection. While most couples prefer to ignore conversations about intimacy and sex issues, it is important that you talk this through with your spouse. A marriage counselor can mediate this conversation and help the two of you to understand why your sex life is suffering.
- You fight unfairly: Sometimes, our emotions are powerful and they can kickstart intense arguments—arguments that involve low blows we regret later. If you find that you and your spouse often fight unfairly, it might be time to talk to a marriage counselor. They can help you have more constructive conversations about what’s bothering you.
- You have different ideas about what your future looks like: You envision life together in a big house with 5 kids… while your spouse envisions life together in a tiny home and a cat. Yeah, that might be a problem. If you and your spouse are on completely different pages of what your future looks like together, it’s important to talk this through, of which you might want to do with a marriage counselor.
If any of the above ring true for your relationship, you and your spouse could likely benefit from talking to a marriage counselor. These relationship experts can provide valuable feedback and guidance in counseling.
