Couples Counselling: Is It Right For You?
If you and your partner are going through a rough patch in your relationship, you may be wondering if it's time to reach out to a professional for couple's counselling. There can be many issues that can cause couples to struggle in how they communicate with one another, including postpartum depression, life changes, struggles with in-laws, and more.
When you and your partner discuss a couple's counselling, it's normal to feel some anxiety at the thought of inviting someone else into your relationship. You may fear being judged, or you may worry that your partner and the therapist will gang up on you. In truth, all that a couple's counselor does is work to create a safe space that allows you to use new communication tools to fully hear and understand each other. When you seek a couple's counselling, it's not necessarily a sign that your relationship is in trouble. It's a sign that you and your partner are both fully committed to the relationship, and willing to do the hard work that it takes to build a life together.
