Would you consider your relationship with your partner to be perfect? Probably not. Even the most “perfect” couples have their issues. As you know, relationships aren’t easy and take a lot of work. Sometimes it can feel like a never-ending uphill battle.
Take Jack and Alex, for example. They’ve been noticing that they don’t actually have a lot in common. This is driving a wedge between them because they’re always off doing their own things and never spending quality time together. Or what about Jess and Sam who have been married for over a decade and are in the midst of piecing their marriage back together after infidelity. Regardless of what’s going on between you and your significant other, there is help in finding a resolution. All you need to do is start here.
“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.” – Mother Teresa

My Partner Doesn’t Like the Idea of Therapy—What Should I Do?
Deciding to see out the help of a therapist or counselor is not always an easy choice. Especially when it involves other people. Addressing sore spots in your relationship isn’t exactly anyone’s idea of “fun.” However, sitting down in a safe, unbiased space will give you and your partner the ability to talk openly and honestly about what issues you’re having. If your partner is struggling to see the benefit in therapy, consider talking about…
- Why you think therapy would be a good option for you both
- How you feel like there’s not much else you could do on your own to repair your relationship
- The importance of gaining the tools and knowledge to work better together
By no means do you want to try to convince someone to choose therapy. But, by talking about why it’s important to you, your partner might come around and see the benefits. Just remind your partner that this isn’t meant to attack either one of you. It’s simply a way to get the extra push in the right direction.
