Relationship counseling while dating
Please let me know if you know anyone who might be interested.
For many couples, the idea of bringing a third party into their intimate relationship is scary — or just plain out of the question.
Most “marriage” therapists have the skills and knowledge to support every type of relationship, but it is essential you ask a potential therapist specific questions so that you can make an educated choice about which therapist to work with.
Therapists are people, too; they may come from a specific viewpoint on the costs and benefits of some relationship configurations.
But before we move on, let’s not gloss over that last point.
White people love to be near a body of water so they can read a book, while sitting nearby. Couples therapy is for after you’re married, the escape hatch is closed, you can’t get out or maybe you’re about to get out but still thinking about whether you should jump ship and then you go get some help.
Others might seek out a therapist when they start to recognize negative patterns in their marriage.
Therapy offers a way to break patterns, create change and find something different in life. It is not uncommon for one spouse to show more interest or motivation in seeking out therapy.
If you have been reaching toward your goal for six months or more, and still don't see the progress you want, then by all means, reach out for help. Caution, if you have been seeing someone individually for a few months or longer, you may find that your partner is resistant or even, intimidated to visit YOUR therapist.
Couples therapy is designed to help partners overcome many relationship obstacles such as communication issues, infidelity, power struggles, or intimacy problems.
