Being in a committed relationship is, in many ways, much more challenging today than in previous decades. People are more stressed and less equipped to manage the interpersonal challenges of daily life. While our spouse is often the most important source of support and stability, we often find them to be a source of stress and conflict in our lives.
While relationships can certainly bring us happiness, and while we are indeed interdependent beings, we also need to make sure that we do not seek a sense of fulfillment and well-being through others. It is better to work on ourselves, identify areas of concern, and continue to address them. This is why couples therapy can be so helpful to people whose relationships are struggling – a therapist is not only a medical professional, but an impartial source of insight whose only goal is to help both partners become the best versions of themselves they can be.
We can also help identify any mental health concerns that may be adding underlying stress to your relationship. By addressing each partner’s individual concerns and helping you chart a course for treatment, we can help you become stronger together.
Couples therapy can be a very effective way of working through our challenges, learning to listen more and becoming the best spouse you can be. In doing so, you will not only feel better, but you will also create a more positive atmosphere for those around you.
In our therapy sessions, we often focus on the following challenges:
Making sure communication is constant and honest between both partners, free of shame or anxiety
Making sure that all opinions and desires are clearly stated
Building patience, confidence and trust between partners
It’s also important to remember that couples therapy isn’t just a last resort to save your relationship. The sooner you address your concerns, the simpler the resolution may be. Using a holistic combination of psychotherapy and meditation techniques, the therapists at Foundation Psychiatry can help you adjust your outlook and invite more compassion, patience, and honesty into your relationship.
Fortifying our relationships is not about buying our loved ones a gift. It is a process of looking inside and confronting our own thoughts, emotions, and judgments. Even if we say all the right things, are we brewing under the surface? Meditation increases our familiarity with our habitual thought patterns, and as we come to understand our own minds, we can more easily be honest with our partners and empathize with them.
Yes. Typically, couples therapy requires the participation of both partners in order to be truly effective. However, it may also be helpful for each partner to seek individual therapy to address concerns they may have about and for themselves.
