Couples counselors at Great Lakes Psychology Group in Southfield are here to help.
There is a myth that couples counseling is often a “last ditch effort” at the end of a failing relationship. For this reason, many couples may avoid seeking help for their relationship, mistaking it as a sign of failure. On the contrary, many couples who complete counseling report improved relationship satisfaction and end up wondering why they waited so long to start.
Common sentiments offered by people in struggling relationships include:
Couples counseling is not just about learning how to compromise, or how to “argue better”. That is, it is not mainly a practical or logical process but rather an emotional one. At the core of a relationship, distress is intense and primal emotion tied to our innate need to be loved and cared for. These vulnerable emotions often get masked as anger, jealousy, and irritability, leading couples to become “trapped” in perpetuating cycles of negative interaction that only make each person feel more alone and uncared for. Over time, this can lead to feelings of hopelessness and despair.
It is often necessary to enlist the help of a trained couples counselor to help you and your partner identify these cycles in order to interrupt them. Our Southfield couples counselors are highly trained, competent, and effective at helping clients improve their relationships.
