Deciding When To Seek Couples Counseling
If you and your partner are struggling, it can be hard to know when it's time to seek couples counseling. You may have already tried individual adult counseling for your own issues and found that your issues as a couple still remain. If you're seeing these signs in your relationship, it may be a good idea to schedule a couples counseling session.
You keep having the same argument, and there's no resolution to the problem.
You feel like you keep trying to make the same point, but your partner fails to hear you or understand.
You've reached an impasse in your relationship where you're not sure how to move forward.
You're struggling with differences on hot button issues, such as religion, whether to have children, or your family structure.
One of you or both of you have been through a traumatic experience, and you're finding that it's affecting your relationship (individual adult counseling is also an important part of the healing puzzle in this scenario).
Many people are hesitant to try couples counseling because they feel that it's the first step to splitting up - but often, that's not true at all. When you and your partner work together to resolve your issues in couples counseling, you're showing that you're both committed to the relationship, and you're willing to put in the time and hard work it takes to grow stronger together as a couple. If you and your partner are ready to come together for adult counseling sessions, we're here to help. At Forge Counseling Collective, we believe in creating the space that you need to fully process any issues that you're having with your partner. Together, we'll develop constructive solutions that allow you to move forward in your life together. Reach out to us today to set up for your first couples counseling session.
