It is an unfortunate reality that many couples only seek therapy when plenty of damage has already been done, and they’re grasping at the final straws of the said relationship. It doesn’t have to be this way at all. At the first signs of disharmony that you don’t know how to fix on your own, you can seek help through couples counseling.

There is no reason to risk your relationship simply because you believe that couples counseling is not for everyone. It is for everyone, for people of all walks of life regardless of their race, creed, beliefs, or position. Every relationship will present with problems from time to time; therefore getting timely help is prudent.

This is not ‘excessive’ or ‘strange’ in any way. If people go to the doctor for something like the flu, then what’s wrong with seeking psychological intervention for something that is so important to the lives of two people?

Maladaptive patterns in any kind of relationship are exceedingly common, and entrenchment is a real issue that can chip away at the very foundations of a relationship that took so long to build up.

Some may say that getting therapy is ‘time consuming.’ Well, being in a relationship that cannot be mended is even more time consuming and draining, especially if both parties are still struggling to get the ship upright.

Just think of all the time that you can save for happier times when a therapist comes aboard to perform the necessary adjustments to the relationships that will make both people thrive and grow.

How We Help

We at The New Hope Mental Health Services are all aboard when it comes to ending the stigma surrounding relationship counseling and couples counseling in general. We seek to make our services the most accessible in the area, and affordable, too.

Face to face therapy brings about better results as the line of communication is unimpeded, and we can conduct interviews and couple therapy sessions in a controlled environment that is conducive to learning, listening, and healing.

We believe that in order to fix a relationship, you have to work on the relationship itself – its mechanisms and dynamics, and not just the people involved in the relationship itself. It is important to understand the dysfunctional dynamics that each partner is bringing into their new relationship.

Differences in cultural background can sometimes be a factor too, so we will take these into consideration. Our approach is systematic, structured, and rooted in evidence-based practice that creates positive results for all our clients. The focus of treatment will depend on the individual problems presented to our therapists during the session

We help create the space where it’s possible to communicate with both the therapist and the spouse/partner in a proactive and productive way.

Excessive and destructive responses and emotions can be held at bay and mediated in such a way that the process of therapy is not disrupted. Emotional responses are normal, but they should definitely not get in the way of healing and recovery.

When you engage in couples therapy, you can expect a standard interview, and the therapist will be interested in finding out more about the social origins of each party, as well as the different values and beliefs that they hold that are relevant to the relationship.
