Factors of everyday life can put an abundant strain on a relationship. Severe stressors may include resentment, infidelity, intimacy issues, lack of trust, and miscommunication. When problems go unresolved or a partner suffers from mental illness or health complications, one can feel helpless, guilty, or ashamed. Communicating effectively on both parts can alleviate emotional anxiety from subjects of all kinds.
Couples often seek couples or marriage counseling when the relationship is at a standstill or unsure whether the relationship is worth salvaging. This type of therapy can benefit families with children who have been affected by relationship issues such as divorce and confront the source of the conflict.
Treatment techniques may include the following depending on the therapist:
- Gottman Method
- Narrative Therapy
- Emotionally Focused Therapy
- Positive Psychology
- Imago Relationship Therapy
