What is Couples Counseling
Looking for couples counseling in Columbus and the state of Ohio? Couple therapy is meant to help you improve your relationship with your partner. This is done with the help of a therapist who acts as an expert coach. At other times, the therapist helps with mental health and other issues that affect the partnership.
There are many different types and styles of couple therapy. And people go to couples counseling for many different reasons. Watch the video to the right or scroll down for more information.
What is generally referred to as marriage counseling is often attended by couples in crisis. However, it is also useful for couples to have a routine relationship checkup with a therapist to avoid issues that might come up.
Marriage therapy can help couples in crisis to work through issues in the relationship such as infidelity, parenting styles, finances and addictions.
Many issues were part of the relationship from the start, and could have been avoided had the couple used premarital counseling. Other issues are introduced after the marriage, and can bring even the strongest marriages to it’s knees.
Having a therapist help you through times of trouble in your relationship can get the relationship back on track much quicker. This is especially the case with tough issues like addiction, abuse and infidelity.
However, do not think marriage counseling is just for the tough cases. Therapists also teach communication skills that can help your marriage grow, and show you techniques that can help you have a deeper, richer relationship with your spouse.
Assessment for Couples Counseling
Before we start with any type of therapy, we do an assessment of the couple and it’s particular needs. You wouldn’t go to a doctor and expect a prescription without getting a thorough examination. If you did, you would likely not take the medication you were prescribed.
In the same vein, you should not expect to go to a therapist and be suggested a treatment without a thorough assessment of any issues and interaction in the partnership.
This will allow the therapist to understand what you need as a couple based on your personal, and interpersonal strengths and weaknesses. This allows us to spend time working on only the things you need to work on. It saves time and money, and it much more effective.
And finally, offering an assessment helps us to build trust with our clients. You know that if we’ve taken the time to understand your personal situation, we see you for who you are. You are not “just another couple” to us!
