Marriage counseling can ease all sorts of relationship problems. It brings partners together for a ‘joint’ therapy session. Relationship counseling can help resolve conflicts and heal wounds that arise from infidelity, fear, anger, sexual issues, illness, and communication difficulty. Marriage counseling opens up the discourse that has been futile for days, weeks and even years. This is accomplished by teaching couples tools of communication that aid in clearer communication, improved listening skills, cooperative problem solving, and a healthier release of feelings in argument form that becomes supportive instead of destructive.
The job of the therapist is to help determine the causes of particular conflicts. Once the cause is identified, the healing can begin. It may be through proper communication and acknowledging differences or it may be through loud and abrasive arguments where your therapist acts as a mediator.
