Keep in mind that 80% of therapists in private practice work with couples, but only a handful have the appropriate training and experience for helping distressed couples.
So, when it comes to professional help, be sure to choose a well trained expert.
Many people read books and invest in consultants to maintain the performance of their cars, their retirement accounts, their bikes or their homes.
Think of your marriage counselor as a consultant to maintain your relationship.
This kind of counseling is a consultation with a professionally trained expert and is no different than a consultation with a financial counselor or a fitness expert.
Research shows that properly maintaining your marriage and keeping it fit may lead to improvements in the relationship.
Many new skills can be learned with the right outlook and commitment. You can decrease conflict, find new ways to reconnect, and identify which problems are solvable and which need your ongoing attention and management.
It is a common misconception to think that people only see a counselor when they have a serious mental health problem. On the contrary, people who seek the help of a counselor when they need it are more, not less, mentally healthy.
