A marriage requires maintenance to keep it working as well as the day you said “I do”. If you feel that you and your partner are not as close as you have been in the past, it’s crucial that you get started making the changes necessary to ensure your marriage thrives. Marriage counseling, provided by the professional couples therapists at Beverly Hills Therapy Group, can help improve your relationship and provide the results you’re looking for quickly.
Did you know most distressed couples wait an average of six years before they seek professional marriage counseling?
Six years is a very long time to endure the emotional alienation, stress, and loneliness that typically accompanies relationship distress.
Some common complaints we hear from couples seeking marriage counseling include:
“We keep having the same arguments over and over again“.
“We just aren’t as close as we used to be. We’ve grown apart.”
“I feel lonely, isolated, and sad in this relationship. I’m just not happy.”
“He/She doesn’t understand me. They never listen.”
Many of the marriage counselors at Beverly Hills Therapy Group have training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy or the Gottman Method. Marriage Counseling with an EFCT therapist will help couples identify the common recurring cycles of conflict and emotional withdrawal that characterize distressed marriages, improve communication, resolve conflicts, and increase and maintain mutual respect, commitment and happiness.
The Gottman Method is designed to support couples across all economic, racial, sexual orientation, and cultural sectors. This therapy modality strives to assist couples in achieving a deeper sense of understanding, awareness, empathy, and connectedness within their relationships that ultimately leads to heightened intimacy and interpersonal growth.
