A lot of people have a construed idea of what a relationship is supposed to look like. We expect there to be sunshine and rainbows every day and if you argue, it is only for a few minutes and happens rarely. Finding your one true love does not automatically mean that nothing could ever go wrong. In fact, it’s often worse with today’s increase of social media couples who may make you feel like your relationship is less than just because you never see them fight. Even the Instagram and Pinterest worthy couples face challenges, whether you see it or not.
The heart wants what it wants. There’s no logic to these things.
You meet someone and you fall in love and that’s it.”
No matter if you have just started dating or have been dating for years, no couple is stranger to an argument here and there. However, it is when those arguments and bickering go on and on and on that it becomes a problem. While many couples do seek couples counseling to help them overcome their problems, many couples also seek counseling so that they can turn their good relationship into a great one. So whether you are facing an uphill battle or just have a little bump in the road, you and your partner could benefit from working with a licensed professional. At Thriveworks Pueblo Counseling, we have a dedicated team of couples therapists who are ready to help you start now. Just give us a call.
What Does Couples Therapy Look Like?
Couples counseling has one main goal: to help you and your partner tackle your challenges and achieve your goals. In order to do so, your therapist will first start off by assessing you both individually in order to better understand where the cracks are in your relationship. Then with the knowledge they have based on your situations, they are able to create a comprehensive plan of action that focuses on working through your issues, improving communication, and reaching the goals you set in place. To make this happen, they will use their training and expertise to use a variety of different methods to help you tackle things like:
- Anger management
- Poor communication
- Stress management
- Problem-solving skills
- How to stay positive
- Identify problems
- Learn how to actively listen
- Address each other’s feelings
We understand how hard it can be to have your partner hear you in a different way than you have already tried before. Our therapists will create a safe, comfortable space for you both to express yourselves and work through the problems at hand. In addition, our couples therapists do not take sides. As a mutual person in the topics being discussed, they have a better outside opinion on the information at hand. No matter your situation, we are dedicated to providing you and your partner with the tools and skills you need to live a happier, more fulfilling life.
