Does Relationship or Marriage Counseling Work?

Generally speaking, about two out of three clients report that, because of their counseling, they feel better about themselves, and are more confident that they can handle their problems.  Some factors that may contribute to the effectiveness of couples therapy and marriage counseling in Marietta GA include the expectations and desires of each client; the therapeutic relationship with the therapist; the competence of the therapist; the strategies learned; the investment of the client in applying therapeutic principles; the experience of making healthy decisions and positive changes;  and the length of therapy.

In couple's therapy, the additional components in the determination of effectiveness are whether both partners become aligned in their expectations and desires, and that they work together to create an improved relationship.  This process usually includes each partner becoming accountable for the participation in the relationship, becoming more considerate and wise in the interactions, managing reactivity, learning constructive strategies to resolve differences, and collaborating with each other to create the changes necessary to achieve the desired outcome.

Whether premarital counseling, individual or couple's counseling, my aim is usually to: collaborate with the clients to help them identify and set realistic goals; guide clients in improving their communication; help clients resolve issues and differences with others; teach effective coping strategies,  support clients in making healthy decisions; and encourage clients to stay focused on taking the positive action to achieve their goals.

Frequently Asked Questions About Marriage Counseling In Marietta GA

These are some of the most common questions that I hear couples asking about marriage counseling.

When both spouses are open to becoming the best partner they can be, marriage counseling can be very effective.  Counseling is designed to help spouses communicate more effectively, validate each other, take responsibility for their actions, decrease negative reactivity, resolve conflicts, increase affection, and build a stronger relationship. Research shows that married couples who participate in counseling are more likely to stay together than those who do not receive counseling.

Anyone who is unhappy in their relationship and is open to making the changes essential to creating a compassionate and respectful relationship can benefit from relationship counseling.  However, in most cases, it is necessary for both spouses to be in counseling together to simultaneously learn to reduce negative reactivity, improve communication, validate each other, negotiate, resolve differences and make accommodations for each other.

Costs vary depending on the therapist’s education, experience, and location.  The average cost of marriage counseling in Georgia ranges from about $85 to $350 per 50-minute session.
