You know to see a doctor for an ache or cough that won’t go away. But where can you turn if your relationship needs a shot in the arm? For some couples, professional relationship counseling is the best answer.
Most of us don’t see our relationships and ourselves objectively, for we’re far more aware of how our partner is contributing to the problems than we are. In such situations, it’s really helpful to have a third party’s perspective and a “referee” to keep the peace while working out solutions.
The main complaints that couples typically bring to therapy are “losing their connection”,”growing apart,” and “high levels of conflict” that they just can’t resolve on their own. Major life changes and high levels of stress can put serious pressure on a relationship, too.
Whatever the cause, it’s best to treat relationship problems sooner rather than later – just as you would an illness, for the sooner you treat the problem, the greater the likelihood of success.
At The Bresler Center, we’ll spend a few sessions interviewing both parties – together and sometimes separately in order to create an appropriate plan for treatment.
