Couples therapy, helps couples — married or not — understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Couples therapy gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve and even argue in a healthier way.

You may need only a few sessions to help you get back on track. Or you may need couples therapy or marriage counseling for several months, especially if your relationship has deteriorated. A couple will typically see a marriage counselor or therapist once a week. It is not uncommon for one partner in the marriage to attend counseling sessions without their partner. If you have to come alone, counseling will still be well worth your time and investment.

The Wyatt Group does offer Intensive Recovery, a 3-day intensive couples workshop for those who have been affected by infidelity, addictions, or intimacy issues. Sessions are usually scheduled for a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Oklahoma City. For more information, or to apply for the 3-day intensive click here.

Marriage counseling to resolve conflicts and improve communication

Illness, infidelity, sex, anger, and communication problems all can contribute to difficulty in marriages. Marriage counseling, or couples counseling, can help resolve these conflicts and heal your wounds.

Is it time for marriage counseling or couples therapy?

Couples therapy can help you rebuild your relationship. Couples therapy can help you understand your relationship better and make well-thought-out decisions.

Marriages are seldom, if ever, perfect. Some conflict is normal and expected. However, if your relationship is at the point of endless conflict it may be time to seek out counseling.

Sometimes an extramarital affair or loss of sexual attraction, will trigger problems in a relationship. At other times, there’s a gradual loss of communication and affection.

Conflict and a lack of communication skills in a relationship can create undue stress, tension, sadness, worry, fear and other problems. A bad relationship may only worsen and eventually lead to physical or psychological problems, such as depression. Your family and work can be affected also.

  • Infidelity

  • Substance abuse
  • Physical or mental conditions
