Marriage Counseling in Bee Cave, TX
Also Serving Lakeway and Surrounding Areas
Marriage counseling is beneficial for any couple wishing to work on, improve and/or maintain their intimate relationship with their partner. Relationships can be hard work, with great pay off when given the nurturance and time that they deserve. In marriage counseling, the therapist works as a coach, mediator, and facilitator while honoring and holding the couple’s goals for therapy.
Marriage counseling is designed to help couples with a multitude of presenting goals which may include:
- Increasing intimacy
- Increasing effective communication
- Increasing sexual satisfaction
- Moving past infidelity to name a few
Learning how to communicate effectively is not something that comes easily or naturally for most people. It takes a lot of effort and practice. It will probably even feel insincere at first. In weekly counseling, couples have a dedicated time and place to practice and learn new patterns of communication such as: “I” statements, active listening and empathetic reframing of what they hear their partner saying. These communication skills allow each side of the couple to feel heard and understood and also re-trains the brain to really listen/hear what their partner is saying, which decreases conflict.
Relationships are two individuals attempting to get their needs met. When needs aren’t met, emotions rise and conflict often occurs. Learning effective communication is the single most powerful thing a couple can do to increase intimacy and sexual satisfaction and overall happiness in their couple relationship.
