Our marriage counselor will encourage the couple to examine their perception of the relationship and take accountability for their thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

What are The Risks & Side Effects Associated With Couples & Marriage Counseling?

Couples and marriage counseling, also known as couples therapy or couples counseling, is a valuable resource for couples experiencing relationship difficulties. Like other forms of therapy, it can have both benefits and potential risks or side effects. Here are some of the risks and side effects associated with couples and marriage counseling:

  • Increased conflict: In the initial stages of counseling, couples may experience an increase in conflict as underlying issues are brought to the surface. This can be uncomfortable and challenging.
  • Emotional discomfort: Discussing relationship problems and emotions can be emotionally taxing, leading to discomfort and distress for both partners.
  • Resistance or reluctance: One or both partners may be resistant or reluctant to participate in counseling, which can hinder progress.
  • Blame and defensiveness: Couples may initially engage in blaming and defensive behaviors during sessions, which can hinder effective communication and resolution.

To mitigate these risks and maximize the effectiveness of couples and marriage counseling:

  • Choose the right therapist: It’s essential to select a qualified and experienced therapist who specializes in couples and marriage counseling and has a track record of helping couples with their unique issues.
  • Commit to the process: Couples therapy often requires commitment from both partners to attend sessions regularly and actively participate in the therapeutic process.
  • Open communication: Honest and open communication with the therapist and with each other is crucial for effective counseling.
  • Be patient: Improvements in the relationship may take time, and it’s important to be patient with the process and with each other.
  • Consider individual therapy: In some cases, individual therapy for one or both partners alongside couples counseling may be beneficial to address personal issues that contribute to relationship problems.

Couples and marriage counseling can be highly effective in helping couples improve communication, resolve conflicts, and strengthen their relationships. The potential risks and side effects should not deter couples from seeking help when they are facing difficulties, but rather serve as considerations to navigate the process more effectively.

FAQ's about Marriage & Couples Counseling

It is a type of psychotherapy where an experienced trained counselor helps a couple improve their relationship, communication skills, resolve their conflicts and enhance their marriage. The therapy includes both partners and provides them with an opportunity to discuss their marriage in a safe, objective and compassionate environment.

Couples therapy can be an opportunity to take a step back, examine the relationship, and honestly explore what is missing in it. From those discussions, the couple can make a decision on whether or not they want to move forward with their relationship or end it. In both cases, the counselor provides the couple with the help and support to attain the relationship they are hoping for.

Couples should consider going to therapy if they are experiencing the following difficulties:

  1. Communication issues: if one or both partners are feeling unable to express themselves or their needs to the other.
  2. Sexual difficulties: if one or both partners aren’t interested or are not satisfied with the sexual relationship.
  3. Conflict on how to raise the children and or blending in the family: if the couple cannot agree and are constantly arguing about their children’s upbringing or communications with their family of origins.
  4. Alcohol or substance use / abuse: if one or both partners are engaged in a dysfunctional relationship with drugs or alcohol.
  5. Infidelity: if one or both partners had extra-marital affairs.

The above mentioned are a few reasons for couples to seek the professional help of a counseling psychologist.

The length of the therapy is determined by the commitment of the couple to the process. It is also defined by the issues being presented at the beginning of the process as well as what the couple is aiming to reach from the therapy.
