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?

Are you and your long-term partner struggling with intimacy issues? Are you two struggling to take the next step in your relationship? Do you fight or bicker on a daily basis? If you answered yes to any of the above questions (and especially if you answered yes to all of the above questions), your relationship could benefit from couples therapy. Couples therapy is a form of therapy that helps couples work through a wide variety of relationship issues, some of which we just listed! It is led by relationship experts, often Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and it can benefit all couples, from those in the early stages of dating to those who have been married for 15 years.

“When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” –Donald Miller

What Relationship Issues Are Discussed in Couples Therapy?

We mentioned a few relationship issues previously, but the truth is that it would be almost impossible to list every single relationship issue discussed in couples therapy! There are no requirements when it comes to couples therapy. We care about getting your relationship the help that it needs. We’ll do our best to do this by understanding the issue(s) at hand, as well as each partner’s needs. That being said, here is a list of issues commonly experienced by couples:

  • Jealousy
  • Lack of trust
  • Waning appreciation
  • Lack of intimacy
  • Not enough time together
  • Parental disagreements
  • Major life changes
  • Financial strain

If your relationship is encountering these or other issues, consider working with a couples therapist at Thriveworks in Leominster, MA. There is nothing to be ashamed of. We often fight with the people we love the most because we care about these individuals and these relationships the most.

How Does Couples Therapy Work?

Your Thriveworks couples therapist will consider your relationship’s specific challenges, needs, and goals before they design the course of treatment. That being said, your couples counselor can help you make the following changes, which will have a positive impact on every aspect of your relationship:

  1. Communicate more effectively. A major problem in many relationships is poor communication, which leads to a plethora of other relationship issues. Your couples therapist can help you learn to communicate more effectively, which will involve practicing patience, narrowing the topic of your conversation, and truly listening to each other.
  2. Managing expectations. Another common problem in relationships is one’s expectations for the relationship. For example, many of us have this fantasy that marriage solves all of our problems when in reality, we often encounter more challenges in marriage with our partners. A couples therapist can help you manage these expectations and hold a more accurate view of what you can expect out of your relationship.
  3. Maintaining a positive attitude. It’s easy to let the problems in your relationship cloud your view. But it’s important that you remember all of the good in your relationship, too. For example, you might be encountering money problems right now, but you’re also spending a lot of time together lately, which is great for your relationship. A couples therapist at Thriveworks in Leominster, MA can help you adopt this positive attitude.

These are just a few small ways the couples therapists at Thriveworks in Leominster, MA can help you. Reach out to find out more or schedule your couples counseling appointment.

I was in great need of an in-person therapist. I've grown tired of being stuck in the zoom room for years now, like many people. Thankfully, I was able to schedule an appointment and get started at the local Thriveworks office. And I'm grateful for my therapist. I feel like I'm making great strides forward in a fraction of the time it took me to make similar progress with online therapy/counseling. Setting matters.
