About Couples Therapy
Relationships are complex organisms that morph over time due to life changes, financial stress, different priorities, and natural growth. Oftentimes, through these changes, one or both partners can begin to feel invisible, taken for granted, lost, and longing for a new connection. Couples often get comfortable in their daily routines and forget to care for each other’s wants and needs like they did in the beginning. It happens to every relationship.
If you or someone you know is struggling with a relationship – counseling can be the answer you have been looking for.
Now, before you say - “Counseling is not for us,” - hear me out.
Some of the happiest couples seek out counseling on either a regular basis or periodic basis to stay on top of underlying issues. They don’t wait for a rift to grow – they get ahead of any issue by maintaining a balance of communication and techniques learned through counseling.
See a counselor for a relationship issue does not mean the relationship is in dire straits. It’s actually the opposite – it means you care enough in the relationship to want to work through the problem together and come out even stronger than before.
Remember, as a couple, you are a TEAM. All teams need to learn to work together. Your favorite football team does not just have one great season and they say, “hey, we’re good. We don’t need to practice anymore to keep winning.” In fact, they work harder than ever to stay on top of their craft to make sure they keep their winning record and that nothing can break them apart.
Relationships are the same concept. If you don’t keep working at them, sooner or later, you are bound to hit a roadblock.
Our Goal at Mindset Counseling Center Through Couples Counseling is to:
Improve communication within the relationship
Encourage acceptance and understanding among each other
Uncover the true reasons behind any issue and work to resolve them together
View the relationship from a different perspective
Create a safe space for both you and your partner to navigate through conflict, without judgment
Restore the emotional and physical connection within the relationship
Reshape the goals of each individual to better suit their wants and needs now versus in the past
There is no need to feel like all is lost. Couples counseling can open new doors for your relationship and rekindle the passion that was once there. In couples counseling, we do not play the blame game or spend the time going through every detail of a disagreement or argument to figure out who is at fault. We work to understand the patterns we get into, call them out, and work together to build new, healthy patterns. The best part is that you will see an impact in, not only your relationship with your partner, but other relationships in your life.
If you are ready to see how couples counseling can help your situation, Mindset Counseling Center is here to help.
