If you are considering beginning Couples or Marriage Counseling, don't delay. Oftentimes, couples are aware that distance has grown, feelings have changed, and that they are seeing the relationship differently, but hesitate to get help -- wanting to wait it out, or let time heal the conflict. While counseling can be helpful at any stage, it is best to take action at the onset of problems.
Couples therapy is focused on understanding and healing the root of communication problems, differences in expectations, and the breakdown in trust. In therapy, through joint and individual sessions, couples will learn how to improve communication, understand the heart of their conflict, and learn to resolve it.
This process has the power to change unhealthy patterns, initiate the healing of relational wounds, and build back trust - which creates the foundation for a healthy, loving relationship.
