Couples' Therapy Can Sort Out Differences

Sep 4, 2008
In any given relationship, at any given time, there can be challenges. The husband, for example, may find that he feels neglected when his wife goes back to work full time after being home with the kids for a number of years; the wife who finds that her husband is spending more and more time with a coworker or secretary than at home may begin to question whether or not she is the most important person in her husband's life. The illness of a child, the aging of parents: these things too can create tension within a couples' relationship.

With couples' therapy - when couples are able to come together and to focus on uncovering their feelings and better communicating about those events in their lives that are taking a toll on the relationship - it is possible to start working through the tensions that are present. With couples' therapy, it is possible to find common ground in neutral space with someone who is able to provide guidance and help both members of the couple to uncover what is really going on.

Ultimately, it isn't always going to be the case that couples are able to identify where the hurt or uncertainty that they are feeling is coming from. Likewise, what many couples find is that when they are trying to talk things out on their own there is a great deal of defensiveness that begins to come out in the form of accusations. With couples' therapy, it becomes possible to learn more about expressing their emotions and discussing - rather than fighting about - those situations that are going on.

Whether the challenges within your relationship are the result of recent changes or the conflict is deeply rooted in the past, whether the situations that are arising - and the emotions that come with them - could be prevented or are completely out of your control, couples' therapy can help you to move beyond the issue. You are likely to find that you are able to focus on the future rather than just the past after participating in couples' therapy and, more importantly, with couples' therapy you are likely to develop the tools that you need to improve communication in the future.

When both parties in a relationship are more comfortable talking about their feelings, emotions and concerns, it is possible to strengthen the relationship. Similarly, when couples are able to come together in couples' therapy and learn to let go of the blame, the hurt, the anger and the frustration, it becomes possible to grow closer together. By recognizing that there are challenges, identifying what the challenges are and by focusing on moving forward with improved communication, it becomes possible to reclaim the connection that brought the couple together in the first place.

Couples' counseling is not going to be the solution to every problem; however it is extremely likely that couples' therapy can help couples to understand what it takes to work through whatever situation they are facing - and to ensure that they come out on top.
