3 ways couple counselling can help you feel better
- You know your therapist doesn’t take sides
- Going to therapy shows you care
- You feel relieved something is being done
You know your therapist doesn’t take sides
Because your couple counsellor is impartial, or neutral, you will receive a fair and non-judgemental approach to your problems. This means you can trust that your counsellor will prompt you to talk about your relationship in a balanced way. In turn, you will feel some relief that you are seeing your relationship in a more stable way.
Going to therapy shows you care
The hardest step is the first. But once you’ve made that call and are sat in therapy, your partner will know one thing for sure: that you care enough about your relationship to want to get help. It often feels difficult for couples to talk in counselling about how they feel, because they feel exposed. Once the conversation starts, though, it gets much easier.
You feel relieved something is being done
When your relationship is not going well, there can be pressure to make it better and frustration when nothing you say or do seems to work. This creates a negative cycle, which can often only be broken by the neutral view of a relationship counsellor. Often people who have made the effort to go to couples’ counselling express a sense of relief that something is being done to address issues.
