Relationship Counseling Is for Everyone
You do not have to be facing challenges in your relationship to schedule a counseling session with Dr. Willard Ashley, Sr. In fact, the best time to start speaking to our team or any therapist is when things are okay. Counseling sessions are an opportunity for you and your significant other to come together to open up. It is a time to get over hurt feelings and to explore the frustrations you have. Yet, it can also be an excellent way for you to improve the way you live each day. When it comes to relationship counseling, you really do need to consider it sooner rather than later.
Relationship counseling does not have to be hard to do. It can be one of the best opportunities for you and your spouse to grow together. When you are ready to explore the concerns you have and learn more about each other, schedule a consultation, and a counseling session.
Do You Need Couple's Therapy?
Many people face challenges during their married life. It is a part of life to go through these ups and downs. Many times, though, smaller problems become larger concerns as they build up over time. Unexpressed feelings or needs, emotional upheaval, and trauma leave people changed and struggling to find a way to work through these situations on their own. You do not have to do so. Couples therapy is an opportunity to come together to learn about each other and support each other.
Couples therapy does not change a person. Rather, it allows for improvement in the way people communicate. It can reveal important information or help teach you how to address your feelings constructively. In addition, this form of therapy should not be seen as a solution, but as the tool necessary to help both people make changes to achieve peace and respect again. If you are struggling with your loved one, schedule a consultation.
Premarital Therapy Creates Key Communication Skills
Imagining a new life together often means expecting a perfect relationship or to live day-in-and-day-out in good communication with each other. The problem is, this is rarely what occurs. Many men and women find themselves struggling during their first few years. This doesn’t mean the marriage can’t be a success, but it does mean improvements are necessary. One way to potentially avoid this is by getting premarital therapy.
Premarital therapy is an opportunity to talk, explore each other’s feelings, and to discuss key factors that could impact your quality of life together. For some people, this means talking about subjects that may be hard to discuss, such as children and careers. For others, it is about learning how to recognize the needs of the other person and addressing them along with your own.
Can Marital Counseling Really Help You?
Marriage is not a simple thing. It may have seemed very different when you first got married than it does right now. Yet, it is important to view marriage as a growing, ever-changing situation in which both people have to continue to learn to work together to support each other in order for it to be successful. This is whey marital counseling is so beneficial. It provides a safe place for you to open up and discuss these key concerns that may be limiting your success.
Many people believe they can handle their problems on their own. Yet, they do not really solve the concerns they have. Rather, they learn to overstep them or hide them. Marital counseling is designed to be a time for you to open up to explore more of these concerns freely so that you can solve them. When you work with a counselor, you will find that a higher quality of life is often possible.
