Get Help for Your Relationship—Couples Therapy in Wilbraham, MA
If you’re familiar with the popular TV series Dynasty, then you’re all too familiar with the rocky relationship between Fallon and Culhane in season one. Fallon, coming from a very privileged family and upbringing, has a hard time connected with her on-again, off-again partner, Culhane, on a more personal level. While they both care deeply for one another, Culhane can’t stand being Fallon’s dumping ground for emotions when she isn’t prioritizing him and his feelings. Most couples get into tiffs here and there. That’s not uncommon. However, when the tiffs turn into arguments that turn into days, even weeks without talking, it might be time to reach out for the help of an unbiased outside perspective.

1. What is couples therapy?
Couples therapy is an approach to therapy that is designed to help partners reconcile and fix the issues in their relationship. In addition, it aims to help you and your loved one prevent future issues from arising and learn different techniques to deescalate quicker. When you start this type of therapy, your Thriveworks therapist will sit down with you both and assess each of your unique goals, wants, and needs. In doing so, they will be able to create a custom plan of action to tackle those areas quickly and effectively. A variety of different therapeutic techniques and methods can be utilized to achieve those goals.
2. What problems can be fixed with couples therapy?
As we have briefly mentioned, couples therapists at Thriveworks in Wilbraham are fully licensed, trained, and experienced in helping couples work through their issues. They are dedicated to providing quality, compassionate care to each and every one of their clients. This means helping them work through a myriad of issues, including…
- Poor communication
- Parenting issues
- Lack of trust
- Financial strain or stress
- Major life changes such as moving to a new city or starting a new job
- Grief and loss
- Lack of intimacy
- And more
These issues are common in romantic relationships, especially as they progress out of the “honeymoon phase.” While certain issues may seem scary, you don’t have to face them alone. Here at Thriveworks Counseling, we are ready to help you tackle them together.
3. My partner doesn’t want to go to couples therapy. How can I change that?
It’s never a good idea to force someone into doing something they don’t want to do. Not only will it seem like they’re being controlled, they’ll be less likely to open up and actually try. When you think it’s time for couples therapy and your partner won’t budge on going, try explaining to them the benefits of couples counseling. Maybe they aren’t aware of the benefits and don’t think it can be helpful. When you explain what it means to you and how much you think it could help, they might be more willing and ready to join you.
Another thing you should do is explain that you’re in this together. Going to therapy isn’t just to call each other out and argue in front of a stranger. It’s meant to deepen your connection and work through the issues that are holding you back from having a happy, healthy relationship.
