Some of our favorite experiences are with our spouse or significant other: Fond memories of the day that you entered each other’s lives, the second you realized you loved each other, the moment you vocalized your love. That time he rode his motorcycle threw the yard with a big smile on his face. That time she beat you in FIFA and rubbed it in your face.

On the flip side of the coin, some of our least favorite experiences are with our significant other, too: Memories you’d like to forget from your first big argument, your first split, your first,

“I don’t know if this is going to work out.” That time he ignored your phone calls and went MIA for a couple of days. That time she said she was leaving and never coming back.

The falling in love part is easy. It’s the keeping it together part that takes consistent

choice day after day. To do the work. To show up for your partner and for yourself.

It’s not that relationships are hard, it’s that they require effort. Choose to make one.”

–Mark Groves

Relationships come with happiness, stress, excitement, disappointment, love, and frustration. They are characterized by ups and downs as well as joyful and upsetting memories. To withstand the tests of time, they require both partners to invest themselves into their relationship every single day. Even then, maintaining the health and longevity of your relationship can prove difficult. The good news is that there are other individuals who can help you and your partner work on the strength of your relationship: couples therapists, marriage counselors, and other professionals who specialize in relationships. If you think your relationship could benefit from the help of a couples or marriage counselor, consider contacting Thriveworks Delaware Counseling. You can begin online counseling with your partner as soon as today.

The Basics of Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy: Here’s How It Works

Take a moment to look back on a recent disagreement that you and your partner had: What did it look like? Were you and your partner able to communicate calmly and effectively? Or was it rife with anger, shouting, or other examples of poor communication? Don’t be afraid to admit that you and your partner struggle to communicate. The truth is that we all struggle to communicate sometimes. Fortunately, a couples therapist or marriage counselor can help you improve your means of communication in your relationship. They can help to mediate and guide these conversations as well as offer support in tough topics.

Also, on top of helping you and your partner communicate better, relationship professionals can help their clients navigate specific conflicts. They’ll spend the first session getting to know you and your partner as well as your relationship as a whole. Next, they will formulate their plan for treatment, based on the needs that you and your partner have identified as well as any needs they might have identified for your relationship.

Working Through Conflicts with a Couples or Marriage Counselor

As we just mentioned, you can work through specific relationship issues and conflicts with your couples or marriage counselor. Your Thriveworks Delaware counselor will structure treatment around these problems, of which could include:

  • Traumatic experiences
  • Ineffective communication
  • Behavioral problems and parental disagreements
  • Loss of connection and/or intimacy
  • Money issues and stress
  • Different values, opinions

This is a small list of big problems that can wreak havoc on your relationship. There are many other conflicts, both big and small, that we could add to this list. Regardless of what it is that’s negatively affecting your relationship, our couples and marriage counselors are happy to step in and help as needed. You can count on their undying help and support.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
