Marriage Counseling for Any Relationship
Marriage counseling can improve your relationship and even save your marriage.
When and why to invest in marriage counseling
If you think your marriage isn’t on track, then you’ll probably find it helpful to see a relationship counselor. 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.
Research shows that the sooner you get the help you need for your relationship, the better the results. However, even if you’ve struggled for a while, counseling can help. It’s worth making an investment in a trained expert to get your most important relationship back on track.
How to find qualified marriage help
Marriage counseling is a consultation with a professionally trained expert. It 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 can improve your relationship.
With the right outlook and commitment, you and your spouse can learn many new skills that strengthen relationships. You can decrease conflict and find new ways to reconnect. You can also identify which problems are solvable and which need your ongoing attention.
If you spouse does not want to attend at this time, you might benefit from discernment counseling or you can go by yourself. 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.
Why it’s important to find a couples expert
Not all therapists have specific training in working with couples. Finding an expert relationship counselor in Chicago is not easy, and it’s important to call your options to ask questions.
80 percent of therapists in private practice work with couples, but only a handful have the appropriate training and experience to help distressed couples. When it comes to professional help, choose a well-trained expert. All counselors at Couples Counseling Associates are trained to help couples in distress.
