Common Goals and Themes in Couples Therapy, Marriage Counseling
Couples therapy and marriage counseling are virtually the same approach to counseling. The latter term simply accommodates married couples. Now, both of these services are designed to assist couples with working through their relationship issues and improving the overall strength of the relationship. Here are a few quick facts about couples therapy:
- Couples therapy has the power to help couples navigate tough conversations and work through stubborn problems
- It proves to be more effective the sooner couples pursue therapy (that is, if they are experiencing specific or serious problems)
- A lot of people are hesitant to pursue couples therapy because they worry about the judgment that might come with it
- Often, one partner is open to couples therapy while the other one needs a little more convincing
- Whatever the specifics, couples therapy helps people make important changes and strides in their relationships
