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?

Some people wait a lifetime to find “the one.” For others, it’s not that simple.  Relationships aren’t perfect.  In fact, sometimes relationships seem nearly impossible.  Even the best ones experience rough patches, and far too many come to a disappointing end, causing pain, shame, and insecurity.

But what if things could be different?  What if the storms of a relationship could be weathered? What if the brokenness could be mended?  What if there was help for the hopeless couple?

Many couples have found hope and healing through couples therapy – you can, too.  Thriveworks Couples Therapy in Rock Hill, SC helps couples put the pieces of a broken relationship back together.  We help couples address the issues that prevent them from going to the next level in their relationship.  We understand how relationship issues cause mistrust, break communication, and drive wedges between partners.  Call today to meet with a couples therapist in Rock Hill, SC.

What is the Goal of Couples Therapy?

The goals of couples therapy vary from couple-to-couple.  Common goals include improving communication and overcoming past hurts in the relationship.  Other goals include:

  • Resolving conflict
  • Establishing rules for “fighting fair”
  • Improving respect for one another
  • Developing empathy
  • Increasing commitment
  • Deepening intimacy
  • Removing threatening or harmful patterns
  • Understanding each other’s personality traits
  • Planning for the future together

In some situations, couples therapy can develop an effective and healthy plan for separation or divorce.  Thriveworks couples therapists in Rock Hill, SC can help you through this process, too.

How do Couples Prepare for Counseling?

Couples can improve their experience by preparing for couples counseling.  Sharing the same goals for therapy is a great place to start.  Being 100% invested in the process is critical, too.  Both partners must be present and engaged.  This includes making a commitment to schedule and attend regular couples therapy sessions.  Honesty is a key component of the process.  For couples therapy to be most effecting, both partners must be honest with themselves and with each other.
