Couples Counseling Q&A

What is couples counseling?

Couples counseling, as opposed to individual, group, or family therapy, is a type of therapy that involves you and your partner. With a licensed counselor or therapist, you and your partner can work toward specific goals to strengthen and prolong your relationship. 

Relationship difficulties can come from an array of issues within your partnership or marriage. No matter the main source of your relationship problems, couples counseling can offer insight into how your relationship works and the steps you can take to improve it. 

In couples counseling, you and your partner work toward specific goals that you set with help from your therapist. At Integral Therapy and Counseling, you can visit the office for counseling or take advantage of the practice’s telehealth services, which allow you to attend appointments via video call instead. 

Who can benefit from couples counseling?

There are many problems, both specific and difficult to identify, that can lead a couple to explore couples counseling as a way to improve the relationship. Your therapist can help you, and your partner dive into the aspects of your relationship at the root of your disagreements and miscommunications, including:

  • Financial hardship
  • Communication problems
  • Sex and intimacy problems
  • Infidelity
  • Differing beliefs or values
  • Family dynamics
  • Health problems

Discussing and resolving issues like these in a mediated setting can help you solve problems with advice from a neutral standpoint.
