Starting Couples & marriage counseling

What is couples & marriage counseling?

Couples therapy and marriage counseling, also known as relationship counseling, helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. Some examples of common focuses within couples therapy and marriage counseling include:

  • Jealousy
  • Trust issues
  • Infidelity
  • Opposing values
  • Different visions for the future
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Lack of trust
  • Financial distress
  • Sex issues

What type of therapy is used in couples therapy?

The types of therapy used in couples and marriage counseling include:

  • The Gottman Method
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Emotionally-focused therapy (EFT)
  • Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT)
  • Strength-based therapy

What kind of therapist is best for couples?

At Thriveworks, Couples & marriage counseling is led by licensed professionals — often licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) — who are experts in their field and best-equipped to help couples.

What is the Gottman Method of couples therapy?

The Gottman Method of couples therapy is a research-supported approach designed to enhance relationships by bolstering the bond between partners, resolving conflicts, and fostering shared meaning in their relationship through comprehensive assessments and tailored interventions that improve communication, trust, and the overall health of the partnership.

How to tell if I need couples therapy?

If you’re facing persistent relationship problems, communication breakdowns, or unresolved conflicts that are impacting your emotional well-being and happiness, Couples & marriage counseling may be beneficial for you.

Should every couple go to couples therapy?

While marriage and couple’s counseling is typically recommended for couples who are experiencing persistent or severe relationship issues, any relationship can benefit from attending these sessions.

Is couples & marriage counseling conducted in person or online?

Marriage and couples counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does couples & marriage counseling last?

On average, couples attend marriage and couples counseling for 12 weeks. However, couples & marriage counseling may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples’ needs, the challenges they’d like to work through, and the pace of their progress.

How much does couples & marriage counseling cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Need more help deciding?

It is estimated that between 40% and 50% of all marriages in the US end in divorce. Couples therapy or marriage counseling is often the right route for those who wish to avoid this scenario or would prefer to end their relationship amicably. The truth is that very few relationships function conflict-free and many married couples will encounter problems such as infidelity, sexual dissatisfaction, dysfunctional communication, or an inability to reconcile their goals and values. This is normal.

That said, an ongoing and persistent conflict within a marriage can not only affect one’s happiness, but may also have a negative impact on one’s health. Although many people will instinctively choose to try and resolve their problems alone, professional help in the form of couples or marriage counseling can often prove advantageous for both partners. Many couples find that conflict resolution is easier to achieve under the guidance of a counselor who has no connection and no preconceived ideas about their relationship. Couples therapy or marriage counseling allows them to gain some perspective and become better communicators.

If you think that you and your spouse could benefit from some time in marriage counseling or couples therapy, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Orlando, FL. Our therapists and counselors can serve as that necessary third party, and they come uniquely equipped with tools and techniques that are proven to help couples work through their problems and improve their relationships. To schedule a marriage counseling or couples therapy appointment, just call our office. We’ll be here!

What Is Marriage Counseling?

Couples therapy or marriage counseling is a form of psychotherapy designed to help people involved in an intimate relationship improve their communication with each other and resolve their conflicts. Couples and marriage counseling sessions are typically designed for both partners to attend, although in some cases only one partner may choose to do so in isolation.

Most therapists will focus on teaching the participants how to…

  • Stay calm
  • Become better listeners
  • Negotiate with each other in a constructive manner
  • Avoid conflict escalation
  • And more!

It is important to recognize that couples and marriage therapy won’t offer simple solutions: a counselor is not there to tell partners what to do. The aim of therapy is to educate and allow the couple to reach suitable conclusions on their own. 

When Is It Time to Seek Marriage Counseling?

Many people will perceive couples or marriage counseling as a last resort scenario to save their relationship. The truth is that this type of therapy is often chosen by couples who simply want to keep their relationships healthy, work through any issues that could escalate into serious conflicts in the future, or even to prepare themselves for upcoming marriage. Whether you are in a troubled relationship or looking to develop an even stronger bond with your partner, couples or marriage counseling might be the right option for you.

Yeah, therapy is subjective so it's hard to rate a company based on one therapist encounter but I do have to include the company overall because it's essential to my comprehensive review. My therapist tried, was friendly and accommodating but just didn't work for me. The company overall is disjointed and maybe a little too big for proper management. You call a central number to get set up but when it comes to quitting the therapist it is up to you as the patient to do it all. Any attempt to log into the site gets redirected to an email link. The latest CSR I had unfortunately had a thick accent and was not really listening to me and my responses.

Hi I was a prior supervisor for Margaret in California where she did her post degree internship. She was a very skilled clinician who had many kids that were high-risk and lived in low-income families. Her relationship and interactive approach was very successful with these children and families. I was impressed with her skill and abilities. I would highly recommend her. Vicci
