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?

Relationships often start out happy and exciting. The couple is smitten: they enjoy getting to know each other, spending time together, and exploring new experiences. People often refer to this blissful beginning as the “honeymoon stage.” Often, it’s when this phase comes to an end, about 6 months to a year of being together, that a couple is met with significant obstacles.

“Behind every happy couple lies two people who have

fought hard to overcome all obstacles and interference to

be that way. Why? Because it’s what they wanted.”

–Kim George

Jealousy, lack of trust, and different visions for the future are all common instances of adversity in a romantic relationship. One partner might wrestle with jealousy or trust issues as a result of a past relationship, which start to come out as the two get closer. Or, two partners might realize their visions for the next 5-10 years do not align like they thought or hoped. These and other issues can prove challenging. And leave two individuals wondering if or how they can overcome the problem and keep their relationship alive.

Couples counselors are experts at helping couples to overcome the challenges they face and preserve their relationship. These mental health professionals have specific skills, experience, and training that enable them to help their clients with this important area of life. If you think that you and your partner could benefit from working with a couples counselor, considering partnering up with a couples therapist at Thriveworks Cumming in Forsyth County. We have couples therapists on staff who are ready and eager to help you and your partner build a better relationship. Call (770) 224-7008 when you are ready to schedule an appointment.

How Does Couples Therapy Work?

Every year, couples seek out couples therapy, with the hopes of improving their relationship dynamic. While each therapist may have a different approach or style, the following are major themes in couples therapy:

  1. Specific Issues: A main theme in couples therapy is talking about and working through specific issues in a relationship, be it jealousy, infidelity, trust issues, different visions for the future, etc.
  2. New, Effective Tools: Another important part of couples therapy is learning new tools for confronting and working through said issue(s).
  3. A Clear Path Forward: The ultimate mission in couples therapy is to put the two individuals on a clear path toward success in their relationship. The tools they learn in therapy will help them learn how to work through their current and future issues.

Research shows that couples therapy really works. And that’s coming straight from couples who have sought out this help. According to a study published in the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, relationship improvement and client satisfaction is high among individuals in couples counseling. Out of the clients of 526 couples counselors in 15 different states, 98.1% rated services as good or even excellent. Furthermore, 97.1% reported receiving the help they were looking for.

Who Should Receive Couples Therapy?

If you think that you could benefit from couples therapy, then couples therapy is for you. Not only does it help couples to address the prominent problems in their life, but it helps them to adopt helpful strategies for dealing with problems that arise in the future.

The ultimate goal of couples therapy at Thriveworks Cumming is to help you and your partner build a happier, healthier relationship. Your couples therapist will assess your unique relationship and then develop a treatment plan that will best benefit you and your significant other.

It’s hard to find someone who you are comfortable talking to and just being a co-worker of hers, I found myself looking forward to our talks.
