Re-building Relationships With Couples Therapy
Jan 09, 2019
Are you and your partner continually having the same fight? Do you feel like your relationship is beyond repair? Was your husband or wife unfaithful? Do you miss the gentle romance that once thrived between you and your significant other? Couples counseling can help.
Relationships, like buildings, need a solid foundation to thrive. Sometimes there are unforeseen disasters that can put cracks into the very core of a foundation that once held up the entire structure. The longer we ignore the chasms, the worse the destruction. In relationships, it is not uncommon for couples to face issues, whether they are related to trust, communication, or simply just doing the dishes! Over time, these problems can fester, preventing both parties from being able to come together and function as a team. Instead of turning towards one another, the individuals retreat inwards and begin to ignore their own needs and as well as those of their partner. Sometimes, a certified therapist can make all the difference in helping to restore the love, collaboration, and communication that once existed. If a couple recognizes the need for help, seeking out therapy can be an ideal and sometimes the only solution.
Couples therapy allows for a pair to grow together in a safe, constructive space. A professional guides the process, helping the couple to understand the dynamics necessary to have a functional and positive relationship. With this baseline, it is possible to begin looking at ways to improve communication and understanding between both parties. We all come from different backgrounds, different normals, and we carry with us unique childhood traumas. We need to recognize not just the existence of these traumas but the negative impact that they can have on our relationship.
Allowing ourselves to take
accountability for our traumas and faults will allow for a relationship
with more openness and understanding. Couples therapy guides this
process and helps to give the couple tools to deal
with conflicts when they arise so that the relationship can thrive
