Couples Therapy Q & A

What is couples therapy?

Couples therapy involves going to counseling sessions with your significant other, spouse, or partner to resolve problems and restore your healthy relationship. It’s an entirely safe environment where you and your other half are free to open up about your troubles and concerns, without fear of facing backlash or judgment.

Your mental health practitioner’s role is to help each of you sort out your feelings and alter the way you respond to situations. By working with your dedicated provider, you and your partner learn to sort through the complex issues that couples face and learn to cope and better understand each other’s viewpoints.

Do we need couples therapy?

A wide variety of couples seek therapy at Thriving Mind Psychology for common to complex issues. It may be time for you and your other half to get started on couples therapy if:

  • You have poor communication 
  • You’re struggling with finances
  • You’re arguing more than normal
  • You’re experiencing sexual dysfunction or frustration
  • You’ve lost trust in your partner, possibly due to cheating
  • You’ve recently experienced a major life change, such as loss of a job
  • You’ve been keeping something from your partner and don’t know how to tell them

Couples therapy isn’t always about solving problems. Sometimes it’s about preventing them. For instance, if you’re in a serious relationship and considering marriage, couples therapy can be beneficial for helping each of you learn how to communicate better so you can experience a long and loving marriage. 

How often do we need to attend couples therapy?

It just depends on you, your relationship, and how dedicated you are to your “homework” during therapy. The understanding team at Thriving Mind Psychology often recommends beginning with weekly couples therapy sessions for several months. 

Over time, the frequency of your visits may decrease to once or twice a month. If you or your partner struggle with personal issues, such as the loss of a parent, your dedicated mental health provider at Thriving Mind Psychology could recommend occasional individual psychotherapy sessions in addition to your couples therapy plan.
