What to Expect in Couples or Marriage Counseling

For couples in counseling, a therapist aims to give both individuals equal time and attention. This will help each person to be heard and get their side of the story across. Yet, professional counseling can be very helpful even if your partner doesn’t want to go.

The main goal of the counseling process is increasing your knowledge about yourself, your partner and the patterns of interaction. It is about finding more effective ways to build motivation and act in a mature way that is conducive to attain your relationship goals.

 

Ways to Bring Your A+ Game to Couples Counseling

You can improve the chances of couples therapy being worth the time and money you put into it. Several things you can do for successful counseling:

  • Define Your Goals

Think about what it is that you hope to get from your couples therapy.

  • Be Responsible

The key to counseling is self-responsibility, not selfishness.

  • Be Open to Change

Therapy and change can be hard. An open mind provides better chance for successful therapy.

  • Have Courage

Although you may have emotional discomfort, face the difficult feelings and act lovingly.

  • Don’t Control

Change brings resistance; think influence rather than control. BE CONSTRUCTIVE
Specify the desired behavior you want to see rather than attacking the character.

  • Listen Carefully

Communication not only means expressing your needs, but also to listen to your partner.

  • Be Your Best

Make an effort to be positive and praise your partner for what you like.

  • Remain Consistent

Commit to the process and stay conscious of making changes over time.
