What is Couples Counselling?

Also known as couples therapy, couples counselling is a type of psychotherapy. It helps in resolving conflicts and improving communication so that the relationship can improve.

Who should consider couples counselling?

As per research by the Gulf News, 62% of the Emirati couples face divorce within the first four years of marriage. These alarming figures point to a greater need for considering couple counselling in Dubai.

Therefore, you should talk to a couple’s counselor if you are struggling with your relationship in any capacity, but certain issues might garner a greater need for getting couples counselling in Dubai. These include:

  • Couples undergoing grief or loss
  • Couples having problems with their sex life
  • Couples with dysfunctional family dynamics
  • Couples dealing with addiction, infidelity, financial issues, abuse, trauma, health issues, communication problems
  • Couples who are fighting all the time or disagreeing on important matters like parenting and lifestyle choices
  • Couples struggling to maintain emotional connection or chemistry

Types of couples counselling

While there are very many types of couples’ counseling. The more popular forms of couples therapy in Dubai include:

CBT

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is aimed at improving the thoughts that then lead to behavioral changes.

Discernment counseling

As the name also suggests, this type of couple therapy in Dubai is useful for allowing couples to discern the goal of their relationship. It is more suitable where one partner wants to end the relationship and the other wants to save it.

EFT – Emotionally focused therapy

The core concept of EFT is that couples must feel an emotional connection with each other. The sessions thus entail working on establishing a stronger bond between the couples and might be suitable for those feeling disconnected from their partner.

Imago Relationship Therapy

Imago method helps in reconciling the childhood trauma that is affecting the partnership. It helps in bringing to the forefront these childhood issues and mitigating their impact.

The Gottman Method

The method focuses on using positive communication, identifying triggers, focusing on the common grounds, and getting rid of the four destructive behaviors, called the four horsemen. These include criticism, contempt, defensiveness, and stonewalling.

What happens at couples counselling?

Different counselors have their distinct styles, but in a typical session, both partners are made to sit together and talk. The session is a safe space where they can have difficult conversations. The counselor helps in moderating as well, so the sessions do not end up in fighting and bickering.

Depending on the issue that the couple is facing, the counselor might suggest different techniques. You can also expect exercises as homework so that the behavioral issues behind the conflict can be addressed.

The importance of working with a marriage counsellor

Helps you rekindle your connection

We all need human contact, to be loved, to have that one person who has your back through thick and thin. If you found that person, but are going through a rough match, it is worth a shot to salvage the relationship that was once special to you.

Improved mental health

Having a good partnership and a healthy marriage is also important for your mental health. A healthy partnership helps in reducing stress levels, allows for the feeling of comfort, and support, and provides solace.

Make marriage mutually beneficial

If the marriage is not on healthy terms, and one partner has to simply give all the time, it can lead to them experiencing burnout. Couples counseling can help you navigate such problems in your relationship, so both partners mutually benefit from the marriage.

Remedy specific issues

It is normal to run into issues in your marriage, much like any other relationship. These problems may pertain to your parenting style, your personality issues, or your sex life. A couple’s therapist can help you navigate these differences better and mitigate the issues that are harming your partnership.

Help with grief and loss

Loss can have a grave impact on the relationship and can even tear the family apart. A marriage counselor can help people process their trauma better, so they can heal together.

Helpful for couples who are separated

Your marriage might have ended, but you have connections like your children, business, etc. due to which you still might have to maintain contact. Counselling for separated couples can help both parties interact amicably.

Helpful for couples who have children

Parents who bicker, are abusive, or have unhealthy dynamics can traumatize children. Divorce and subsequent separation between a parent and children are also detrimental to their health. Couple counselling can help in improving the course of conflict so parents can give their children a healthier environment.

How much is couples counselling?

The cost of marriage counseling in Dubai will vary from one couples’ counsellor to another. Furthermore, some couples might require more sessions. The cost will also depend on whether your insurance covers the therapy or not.

How to get started with couples counselling?

Talk to your partner

If you think your relationship is not faring well, you should talk to your partner about considering couples counselling. To make for a compelling case, do your research about how marriage counselling can be of help to you.

Find a marriage counselor

Next up is finding the right couple therapist. If you are comfortable with it, you may ask your friends if they know of someone who is counselling couples. Or you can search for one on the internet, using different phrases like affordable couples counselling near me, or find couples counselling therapists.

For a refined search, try to find a couples therapist whose credentials fit your needs, for example, if you are looking for couples sex counselling, then see in their qualifications if that is their forte. There are many settings where you can get online couples counselling, while some call for in-person. You should also consider these facets for your ease.

Starting couple’s therapy 

Starting couples therapy can be daunting, but such apprehension can be linked to any new experience or treatment. Just walk in with an open mind and commitment to change and improve your relationship.

Different couple therapists work in different ways; while some may have joint sessions, others may mix with individual ones as well. Ask your marriage counsellor their modus operandi, do not hesitate to enlist your queries, and if things are not improving, you can always try another marriage counselor.
