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?

Every relationship has ebbs and flows, and even the best-matched couples disagree on occasion. That idyllic couple you follow on social media may bicker about finances in between photo shoots or butt heads on parenting issues.

While most disagreements are minor and can be easily resolved, some conflicts may arise that cause a significant disruption in your partnership. Or maybe you’re dealing with pent-up feelings of resentment or a break in communication that makes it difficult to forgive one another.

If something has changed in your relationship or you don’t seem to be able to settle a dispute on your own, a couples therapist at Thriveworks in Lawrence, KS can restore peace and help you see eye-to-eye once more.

Why Should We Consider Relationship Counseling?

People may seek couples therapy for a number of reasons, and your relationship doesn’t have to be in turmoil to benefit from counseling. While a couples therapist can support you through difficult family issues and help you to repair broken trust, they can also help keep healthy relationships happy and strong.

Conflict within partnerships can arise for countless reasons. Stress outside of the home, illness, and mental health issues can all cause disruptions between you and your partner.

Some common reasons people pursue couples counseling include:

  • A breakdown in communication
  • Difficulty resolving conflict
  • Infidelity or trust issues
  • Jealousy
  • Divorce or separation
  • Sexual dissatisfaction
  • Strained family relationships
  • Financial disagreements

You don’t have to wait until your relationship is on the rocks to seek counseling. Thriveworks in Lawrence, KS can connect you with a licensed family and marriage therapist who can help you fix your problems and rebuild your relationship before your bond is broken.

How Can Couples Counseling Help Us Move Forward?

Couples often seek counseling or therapy because it can improve their relationships on many levels. Couples counseling can help strengthen your bond with your partner, resolve old problems, and lead to an improvement in your emotional state or mental health.

When you begin counseling with a licensed family and marriage therapist, you’ll learn how to cope with your own emotions and find more effective ways to respond to others. You may find the exercises and techniques discussed during your therapy sessions can be applied to many areas of your life outside of your relationship.

Some of the ways people benefit from couples and marriage counseling include:

  • Improved communication skills
  • Conflict resolution skills
  • Renewed romantic interest or intimacy
  • Enriched family dynamic
  • Improved mental health or happier mentality
  • Restored trust and respect

When you start relationship counseling, your therapist may meet with you both individually to get to know each of you on a personal level. Your personality, emotional state, and experiences may be very different from your partner’s, and it’s important for your therapist to be familiar with all of the parts that make up the whole.

During couples therapy sessions, your therapist may guide you through discussions and different therapeutic techniques to help improve your communication and mutual respect for one another. These tools can be used long term to maintain a healthy relationship and help resolve any future conflicts.

While marriage and family therapy can help you resolve the issues that are dividing you in the short term, it can also help you prepare for a happy and satisfying life together. The couples counselors at Thriveworks in Lawrence, KS can give you the tools you need to make your relationship happier, healthier, and stronger in the long run.
