Benefits of Couples Therapy

Couples therapy can be beneficial in helping couples work through their problems and improve their relationship.

Here are some major benefits of couple’s therapy:

Gain a deeper understanding of your relationship dynamics.
A major benefit to couples counseling is that the couple begins to understand the dynamics
between the couple and what could be causing some of their conflict? Teaching couples to
notice their patterns of interaction and ways in which they may be able to resolve some of their

Creating an impartial sounding board
By creating a safe and neutral space for couples to communicate issues and a having a third
person in the room that the couple can trust has proven to be helpful for the couple in viewing
their relationship from a different lens. The couple’s therapist will become the neutral party
that can work as a mediator to assist the couple by facilitating productive conversations to help
the couple feel heard and understood.

Develop new skills
One of couple’s therapy’s main goals it assists the couple in gaining insight and provide new
skills and strategies for dealing with conflict. Communication is key in relationships and
learning tools to communicate more effectively in marriage can help break through some
unhealthy habits. Sometimes couples lack skills due to what we were modeled growing up in
our families of origin, or maybe we developed some bad habits from past relationships.
Whether it’s learning how to communicate more effectively, practicing active listening, or
finding ways to compromise, couples therapy can provide these tools to navigate during
challenging times into a more positive way to interact.

Rebuilding trust
Sometimes relationships have gone through a tough time where the trust has been broken in the marriage. Couples therapy can help the couple explore how it was broken and create a space for forgiveness and understanding. Rebuilding trust can be difficult, but not impossible. With the right tools, couples can begin to form a solid foundation to rebuild their relationship.

Strengthening bonds
Couples therapy can be a powerful way for a couple to strengthen their bond and deepen their
intimacy. Many times, we lose sight of why we choose our partner, and it’s normal for relationships to change over time and through couple’s therapy the hope is regain an understanding of the other person’s thoughts wishes and desires.

Is Couples Therapy Effective?

Couples therapy can be very effective. Statistics show that between 70% and 97% of couples have
benefited from couples therapy and largely on the willingness of the couples to do the work in the
relationship. By working together as a team when problems arise, couples work towards building a
deeper understanding and appreciation for one another. Couples can also learn new ways to
connect emotionally and physically, which can help rekindle feelings of love and passion that may have been lost over time.
