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.
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.
Do you and your partner struggle to connect on an intimate level lately? Are you struggling to make time for one another? Do you fight about everything under the sun? If the answer is yes to any or all of the above, working with a couples counselor or therapist can prove beneficial to your relationship.

What Can I Get Out of Couples Counseling, Therapy?
The couples counselors at Thriveworks Boca Raton in Palm Beach, FL create individualized plans for their couples. Your counselor will ask you and your significant other about your needs and your goals for your relationship, understand any problem areas, and then work to customize this plan just for you. Couples counseling is beneficial for many reasons. One is that these professionals can offer extremely helpful tips for maintaining a happy, healthy relationship. Here are a few examples:
- Improve lines of communication: It’s easy for conversations to go awry as emotions become heightened. But it’s important that two partners learn to control any anger or other negative emotions and communicate effectively. Effective communication is key to a lasting relationship.
- Turn thoughts into actions: When you and your partner are talking about a problem, be sure to come up with a plan for action and then implement it. Don’t just talk about the improvements that could be made in your relationship.
- Keep realistic expectations: You just can’t expect to see results overnight. Instead, the improvements you make in your relationship will take time. In fact, sometimes the biggest improvements come with or after taking a few steps back.
- Remember the good: As humans, we often forget about the good in our relationships and focus solely on everything that’s wrong. Do your best to kick this bad habit. Take a few moments each day to be grateful for the good in your relationship.
