Marriage Counseling or Couple’s Therapy sessions typically include both partners together but sometimes one partner chooses to work with a therapist alone. The specific treatment plan depends on the situation. Couples seek counseling for various reasons, to gain a better understanding of each other, to improve a troubled relationship or to strengthen their existing bond.
Couple’s therapy address various issues, such as:
∙ Communication problems
∙ Conflicts about child rearing or blended families
∙ Financial problems
The marriage consultant or therapist typically brings couples or partners together for joint or/and an individual therapy sessions. With the help of the therapist, one learns certain skills, which include communicating openly, solving problems together and discussing differences rationally. Couples are encouraged to look at both the good and not so good parts of the relationship and become aware of the source of conflicts.
If your partner refuses to attend counseling sessions, you can opt for individual sessions. It can be challenging to mend a relationship when only one partner is willing to go to therapy. However, there is a lot to be gained by learning more about your own reactions and behaviors in the relationship, which could be triggering the partner.
Some require only a few sessions to help weather a crisis; whereas some may require counseling for several months, particularly if the relationship has greatly deteriorated. The specific treatment plan will depend on the situation.
