Starting Relationship counseling

What is Relationship counseling?

Relationship counseling, also known as couples-therapy and marriage counseling, 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 relationship counseling include:

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

How does Relationship counseling work?

Relationship counseling 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 Relationship counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks relationship counseling in Red Bank is conducted both in person and virtually via online counseling. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does Relationship counseling last?

On average, couples attend relationship counseling for 12 weeks. However, relationship 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.

Need more help deciding?

Relationships are all around us. From your spouse to your coworker- they are impossible to ignore or avoid. Of course, some relationships have more weight than others. Your significant other is probably one of them.

This is by no means a bad thing! How beautiful is it that two lives can collide in an array of love, trust, and friendships?

Well, that’s how it’s supposed to go anyways. And it’s still the truth- relationships are still full of all that beauty. But they can also be full of hurt, lying, and shame. The same thing that makes it beautiful (human lives interacting with each other) makes it messy.

The good news is that the messy doesn’t have to mean doomed. It doesn’t have to mean hurtful, either. With the right tools and practices, your relationship can be as fruitful and happy as it was in the beginning. Thriveworks in Red Bank, NJ has relationship counselors who are here to walk alongside both of you as we traverse the crazy world of love.

Does Relationship Therapy Work?

More often than not, couples come to us when they are experiencing relationship problems. This is by no means the only time couples seek therapy- premarital and in preparation for a big change are also reasons we’ve seen couples- but it is the most common. Why?

Probably because you still love the person! You still want to make the relationship work. You’re still willing to fight for them and your future together. Thriveworks Red Bank admires your resolve and your commitment to each other. It is this resolve, even if it feels far away now, that will help meld your relationship and make it even stronger.

The truth is that when a relationship starts it is full of sparks and new beginnings. It’s exciting! But as time wears on, the infatuation wears off and you might even start to get on each other’s nerves. Routines are solidified, old habits rise, and you might start to feel unloved, not respected, and underappreciated.

Sometimes, these are signing a relationship is toxic and unhealthy. But other times, they are signs of something going on underneath the surface that needs to be addressed before you and your loved one can go back to a healthy, happy place.

Some common issues our Red Bank relationship counselors help couples walk through include:

  • Recovering from cheating
  • Managing busy schedules
  • Improving on communication skills
  • Learning how to live together
  • Adjusting to life changes and stress together
  • Feelings of jealously or underappreciation
  • Unmet needs for affection
  • Differing expectations for the relationship

There is never a too small or too big problem for our relationship counselors! Everything from recovering from cheating to petty arguments are important because they affect you and your health. So, whatever you are experiencing, Thriveworks Red Bank offers a safe spot for you and your loved one to heal and grow together.

What Does Couples Therapy Look Like?

Thriveworks Red Bank believes every person is unique, and that makes every relationship unique. This means that there is no one-size fits all counseling strategy. You deserve something that will fit your situation, goals, and individual personality. Every relationship has their own rhythm to it, and each one wants to grow into something different. Our job is not to judge where you are going but to help you get there in a healthy, lasting matter.

With that in mind, couples therapy doesn’t have a set of rules or regulations. A Red Bank couples’ therapist will take the first session to talk to you and your partner through what counseling will look like for you. We’ll talk goals, possible setbacks, and first steps. We strive to create an interactive environment- we are partners in the counseling process, not leader and follower. Couples therapists might be the experts in relationship psychology and know all the techniques to help you, but you are still the expert on yourself and on your relationship, and that is equally as important.

A few of the specifics we might talk about include:

  • Communication skills
  • Forgiveness
  • Action steps to create personal change
  • Talk through visions for the relationship
  • Reveal any negative emotions directed at each other or the relationship at large
  • Exploring how to best love and support one another
  • Addressing any underlying personal mental health struggles that might be influencing the relationship
  • Problem solve- Red Bank couples’ therapists are here to support you!

Relationships can be a life-giving source when they are healthy, and a toxic, life-taking source when they are unhealthy. You deserve what is best for you and your relationship. It can be hard to see what this is through the love and heartbreak of a relationship, and that is where Thriveworks Red bank Couples Therapy steps in. We are excited to meet you and your partner and start down the path of healing and growth together.

Zack Diamond Drake has some of the best ears around. If there is something dragging you down or simply holding you back, this individual will not only help you work through whatever it is, but help you to think through the process yourself. This, in my opinion, is the best kind of counseling there is. I would highly recommend his services.
