Couples Therapy

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy describes therapeutic methods that primarily focus on improving the relationship between individuals in a romantic partnership. At Cornerstone Counseling Service, which has offices in Hugo, Idabel, McAlester, and Tishomingo, OK, and one in Paris, TX, couples therapy can help anyone negotiate all kinds of meaningful relationships more effectively.  

What is the Objective of Couples Therapy?

The primary goal of couple’s therapy is to help partners strengthen and enhance the existing relationship by addressing where the couple’s choices begin to inhibit their growth (both as individuals and as a couple) or prevent their joy and peace. Seeking professional counseling before an issue grows out of control offers an opportunity to address it, prevent unnecessary escalation, and help you achieve the quality relationship you desire.

The Benefits of Couples Therapy

Couples counseling creates a foundation and a safe place for honest, open, and transparent communication—vital components of a healthy relationship. Some of the reasons people pursue couple’s therapy include that it:

  • Facilitates Conflict Resolution - Conflict is inevitable, but understanding the effective ways to navigate and solve disagreements is critical for creating a sustainable and satisfying relationship. Lingering resentments can build issues that go unresolved. Conflict resolution skills that can be explored in the safety of a therapeutic session can be applied to everyday life.
  • Enhances understanding and empathy in your relationship - Couples therapy facilitates a deeper understanding of your partner. Through multiple sessions, both partners often gain new insights, while your partner can develop a better grasp of your thoughts and experiences.
  • Guides each partner through life’s challenges. - Even the most satisfied, well-adjusted couples will face life challenges like mental health issues, traumatic events, infertility, and financial dilemmas, to name a few.

Couples therapy is an effective tool for helping each person better understand themselves and their partner. The process encourages open expression of feelings, hopes, fears, priorities, values, and beliefs, fostering greater insight and connection that allow for a stronger relationship.
