How a Couples' Therapist Can Improve Your Relationship

Sep 4, 2008
When it feels as though you are doing everything in your power to keep your relationship strong and solid but it still feels as if something is not quite working, you just might find that it's a great idea to start looking into a couples' therapist. On many different levels, a couples' therapist can help you to improve your relationship.

First, a couples' therapist can help you to improve communication. Whether you are having trouble connecting because of stress on the job, disagreements about raising the kids or even as the result of an illness that is taking toll on the family, a couples' therapist can help you to get to the root of what is coming between you and help you to move beyond it.

Similarly, when you are working on your relationship with the help of a couples' therapist, you will find that you are in a position in which you won't just communicate more effectively, but also that you will be able to stop playing scorekeeper. Keeping score of the number of times that your partner has somehow done you wrong is only going to create more challenges within your relationship; working with a couples' therapist can help you to forgive and to let go of the pain that the hurts have caused.

More importantly, you're going to find that, when you are working with a couples' therapist, you will be able to learn more about what you are doing to affect your relationship. In most cases, after all, reactions, hurts, anger and other responses that we have add to the conflict. When you are working with a couples' therapist, you will find that you are in a position to better understand what you are doing and how it affects your relationship.

As a result, you will find that your couples' therapist will help you to connect with your emotions - and to help you to learn to better process them. Because you will be able to work with a couples' therapist to understand your emotions, you will be in a better position to work through them.

Ultimately, working through your emotions (and understanding where they come from) will have a positive impact on your relationship. It will allow you to move past those things that have happened in the past and to focus on the future of your relationship. In other words, working with a couples' therapist will enable you to focus on moving forward, on reconnecting and on understanding that the passion that you once felt for one another is still there - despite hurt, anger, and the chaos brought on by family, work and other stresses.

When your relationship is suffering because of the stresses that are put on it, when you find that you are not communicating as well as you could be, you are likely to find that working with a couples' therapist will create a solution: you are likely to find that working with a couples' therapist will enable you to build the future of your relationship rather than dwelling on the past.
