Relationships and marriage bring enjoyment, companionship, and contentment to our lives, but they also take hard work and dedication.
Depending on the situation and the therapist’s therapeutic approach, he or she may ask to speak with each partner individually, along with meeting with you as a couple.
After providing an assessment, couples therapy can go in a variety of directions based on the current issues and goals of the couple.
The therapist will help each partner understand his or her role in the relationship conflict and take ownership of his or her feelings, thoughts and actions.
Expect to take an active role in therapy and remember to be honest and ask questions if you are unsure of where counseling is going.
