Recently, Kristen Bell came forward and discussed the benefits of attending couples therapy while dating.
She admitted that shortly after she and now-husband Dax Shepard began dating, they entered into couples therapy.
However, when both parties are present, engaged and willing to work on things, the probability of successfully mending that relationship is very high.
Choosing a therapist that both you and your partner feel comfortable and safe with is monumental to success.
A therapist will also provide tools and ideas for the couple to work on and master.
This will ensure that when the couple leaves therapy they will still have the tools they need to keep their relationship strong and healthy.
If one person feels like the therapist favors the other person, then they might become closed off and unwilling to participate.
They could even start refusing to attend counseling and it could increase marital conflict.
Most “marriage” therapists have the skills and knowledge to support every type of relationship, but it is essential you ask a potential therapist specific questions so that you can make an educated choice about which therapist to work with.
Finding a qualified therapist that has experience is also important.
Finding a therapist who has completed an applied behavior analysis can be very helpful in getting efficient results.
These obstacles, however, are not simply limited to married couples.
Here, therapists explain how couples therapy is available to any kinds of partners, regardless of whether or not you are married: Denise Onofrey, MA, LMFTC: Couples therapy is relationship therapy.
You may find yourself in a relationship that needs some outside guidance in order to progress in a healthy way.
