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?

Being in a relationship with another person is not always easy. Communication problems, disagreements, differing values and issues around trust are struggles many couples face. Relationships are bound up in emotions, which makes navigating these issues even more complex.

Sometimes, we just don’t have the tools we need for addressing and resolving a given problem, such as jealousy, infidelity, broken trust, or financial stress. For a committed relationship to work and thrive, couples often need help learning new strategies and using new tools. This is where couples therapy comes in. At Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant, we can help you and your partner work through the issues in your relationship and create a happier, healthier future. Call us at 843-606-6223 to schedule a session with one of our experienced counselors.

Do We Need Couples Counseling?

Trained, professional counselors can help couples at any stage of their relationship — from those who are recently engaged to those who have been married for years. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been a couple or how severe the problem you’re experiencing. The couples therapists at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant have the knowledge and expertise to help you address your relationship issues. These are just a few of the questions you may be grappling with and that we can help you resolve.

  • Why are we struggling to connect?
  • Is my partner cheating?
  • Why are we constantly fighting?
  • Why are our fights never really resolved?
  • How can we come to agree on finances?
  • How can we resolve conflicting ideas we have about our future?

This is just a short list of challenges your couples therapist can help you address and overcome. Whatever the problem, your counselor will guide you in talking about the problem and implementing an effective plan for moving forward. If you need becoming a stronger and healthier couple, call us today to schedule your appointment. Our phone number is 843-606-6223.

What If My Partner Doesn’t Want Couples Counseling?

Some people are open to counseling; others are reluctant. If you believe that your relationship can benefit from couples therapy, but your partner is unsure, consider taking these steps:

  1. Remind your partner that you want to make things work.

Your partner might feel like your wanting couples counseling is an attack or an insult. In reality, it shows how much you care about your partner and your relationship. Remind them that you are in this together, and that you are seeking professional help because you want to live happier, healthier lives together.

  1. Let your partner know the benefits of couples therapy.

The Journal of Marital and Family Therapy found that 97% of couples who went through therapy were satisfied with the counseling they received. What’s more, 93% of couples said their counselor helped them deal with their problems more effectively. That’s a huge success rate. You can share these figures with your partner as a way to show them how they might benefit from couples counseling.

If you think that your relationship could benefit from couples counseling, schedule an appointment at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant. We can help you and your partner be happier together. Our counselors have flexible schedules that are designed to fit your schedule. We offer day and evening appointments, and we accept most major insurance plans. We are conveniently located adjacent to the Queensborough Shopping Center at 1131 Queensborough Blvd., #100 in Mt. Pleasant. To set up a session, give us a call at 843-606-6223.

My therapist at Thriveworks, Susan, is warm and and relatable. I am a late-diagnosed autistic woman. I am basically now learning what everyone else learned in kindergarten. I have a history of broken marriages and jobs I was invited to leave because I didn't fit in, to put it mildly. She has helped me in so many ways, and I can now see decisions I made that I thought were just what had happened to me. I feel much more capable and hopeful now. I wish I could have met her years ago. I have gone to many therapists over the years, but now I can see how I can feel hopeful about my life and my relationships with my daughters and my grandchildren.
