Couples therapy is not only for couples going through a rough period. Couples therapy, or couples counseling is becoming less and less stigmatized, and for a good reason! Long-term relationships require a large amount of time, effort, and dedication, and balancing our relationships with everything else that is going on in our lives can be a challenge. Couples therapy is not necessarily about fixing something that is amiss, but it can be a wonderful way to strengthen our bonds and connections before we face obstacles. It can also help us become closer with one another, and guide us in helping one another reach our goals and dreams together.
Couples therapy does not have to be for couples that have been together a long time either. Partners in a new relationship can benefit from seeing a therapist as well. By establishing a commitment to one another early on may lay the rock-solid ground-work for a healthy and flourishing relationship. Early on in our relationship we build the skills we may need later on to face life’s challenges together. This article talks a little bit about why couples therapy could be the key to a happy relationship.
