#014: Is It The Right Time For Couples Counseling?
Admitting you need Couples Counseling is one of the bravest things you can do in a relationship. Who wants to conclude they’re not capable of making it work? Not many. But those who do often find themselves confused. Here’s help.
Does it feel like something is not right your relationship? Sometimes you might wonder if you need couples counseling, especially after having a big fight. Other times you might not even consider couples counseling until you have reached your limit of “I can’t do this anymore!” If you can relate, then this episode is for you.
You might be wondering if your situation even requires professional guidance. Look, you haven’t done this before, so how would you know? For this, we (my co-host alina and I) decided to draw a roadmap to help you navigate the world of “I think we need help, but I’m not sure where to start”. We discuss the stages that couples go through before they realize they might need some outside help. We also talk about the significance of first trying to fix the situation by yourself. Then we go over on what to look for in a professional couples therapist, the different types of therapy, the difference between health insurance and private pay, and the different types of specialties.
Did you know that the average couple waits 6.7 years to see a professional? Even though I encourage to try to fix it yourself first, I definitely do not want you to wait this long. So, if you feel your relationship needs help, then you don’t want to miss this episode.
Can’t wait to share my roadmap with you. Stay tuned!
