Couples Counseling – Marriage Therapists and Counselors in VA Beach

Are you worried about the future of your relationship? Are you concerned that you’re in such a bad place that there’s no coming back from it? These five simple steps are exactly what you need. Once you’ve read and absorbed them, contact Thriveworks Virginia Beach Counseling and let us provide you with the customized help you need.

1. You’ll get nowhere without communication

It can be hard at first but the reality is that you won’t get anywhere until you start communicating. This doesn’t mean just talking. It means opening up, making yourself vulnerable, and discussing your true feelings about your relationship with your partner. It may be uncomfortable but it will get you through the silence that’s risen up around you.

2. Take appropriate actions

Talking about your relationship and genuinely wanting it to change are both necessary but they’re not enough on their own. You must also be willing to take the actions necessary. This may mean working with a therapist, it may mean setting clearer boundaries, or it may mean setting aside time to spend with your partner.

3. Understand that the process takes time

Don’t get caught up if you experience a setback. Remember that these things take time. It can get better – if you do the work necessary to make it better – but it isn’t magic. It won’t happen overnight and the way forward will likely be full of twists and turns.

4. Resist the urge to relax when things get better

As things start to improve in your relationship you’re likely to want to relax and get back on autopilot. Resist this urge. You must stay diligent and keep up the work that’s gotten your relationship back on track.

5. Take time to appreciate your partner

Much of the time couples focus on what’s not working in their relationship. This is understandable – and necessary to a degree – but it’s also important to remember what makes your relationship wonderful. Tell your partner that you appreciate them and take the time to write a gratitude list of all the things you love about them.

These steps aren’t a magical cure that will guarantee your relationship lasts the test of time. They are a guide on how you can do the work to give yourselves the best shot possible. Call a Thriveworks Virginia Beach couples counselor or coach today to find out more about how your specific issues can be addressed.
