Starting Couples/marriage therapy

Need more help deciding?

When people think of marriage counseling, they often think of infidelity, complications with sex, and jealousy. While all of these challenges are valid reasons to seek couples and marriage counseling, they’re not the only reasons. Counseling can include preemptive measures, such as addressing concerns before entering into marriage or a committed relationship.

If you’d like to learn about how a couples or marriage counselor can make a positive impact in your relationship, consider contacting a professional at Thriveworks Counseling in Tempe, AZ. Whether you’re a newer couple just getting started or a seasoned couple with years together, counseling can be a transformative experience.

Common Reasons To Speak With a Couples Counselor

As mentioned earlier, there are many reasons couples seek counseling to improve their relationship. Some of these reasons include:

  • Communication problems
  • Opposing views (on parenting, politics, or other topics)
  • Infidelity
  • Trust issues
  • Premarital arguments
  • Financial complications
  • Intimacy issues

No matter the reason, marriage and family therapy should be sought with an open mind and honest intentions. By design, this form of counseling requires teamwork and acceptance of personal responsibility.

The Benefits of Relationship Counseling

A couples therapist will work with you and your partner to create a safe space to discuss your relationship. During therapy sessions, your counselor will address your specific concerns and create a plan that works to improve those concerns.

The benefits of couples counseling are plentiful. They can include:

  • Teaching involved parties the benefit of active listening and cooperation
  • Promoting self-care practices that improve mental health
  • Identifying relationship challenges before they become bigger problems
  • Building a sense of trust between partners
  • Preparing for the future with careful planning

The above-mentioned benefits are just a few of the positives of attending therapy sessions. Our licensed marriage and family therapists in Tempe, AZ, are here to help you resolve these and any other relationship concerns you may have.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
