Would your marriage benefit from uninterrupted time where you and your spouse just focus on each other and the things that are important to the relationship? A time where the kids’ needs would not take center stage, a time where the bills and household chores won’t be calling your name, a time where you both put down the phones and a time where you are in a comfortable peaceful setting focusing on your marriage and each other. Have you been thinking about therapy? Have you been researching and searching out answers to situations in your relationship that is frustrating and seems unsolvable? Have you been exploring different ways to create change in your relationship? Have you been reading my blogs and connecting with my words? Are you wondering if therapy is right for you and your marriage?
Couples counseling has many benefits for couples in crisis but it also has benefits for couples in a healthy relationship. Counseling sessions can be viewed as uninterrupted time to nurture your marriage. Don’t wait until you run out of options and you feel like you are past the point of reconciliation. Therapy is not just the last step couples take before they divorce. Therapy is helpful to couples experiencing a breakdown in communication and friendship but therapy can also be useful as a proactive tool in your marriage. Don’t buy into the stigma that therapy is only for couples that are going to break up. Therapy can be maintenance to your relationship the way tune ups are to your cars. As part of keeping your car running well, you get a tune up. Relationships can benefit from tune ups as well. A routine check in with your spouse is important. Therapy can give couples the opportunity to have meaningful conversations that they might not have had otherwise. Even the best marriages hit bumps in the road. Some are small bumps and it is easy to get back on track and some are bigger bumps, running you off the road. Small bumps or big bumps, it is important to remember ALL marriages need to be nurtured.
