What is Couples Counseling?
Couples counseling is therapy that addresses the specific issues that couples in intimate relationships often experience. As with family counseling, couples counseling emphasizes the fact that individual issues and problems can impact relationship functioning, and vice versa. Some common problems that individuals encounter within their relationship are communication issues, intimacy issues, how to build and maintain a strong relationship, and issues of forgiveness.
The goals of couples counseling are to improve the quality of the couple’s relationship, to address the problems that occur within intimate relationships and interpersonal relationships, to address interpersonal dysfunction that can occur between couples, and to provide your relationship with effective and constructive coping mechanisms for dealing daily problems.
