Conflict does not discriminate.

The following very simple strategy will help you and your partner make your best decision about whether couple therapy is right for you.
Persons who seek out therapy usually want and need some sort of change. The desire for change is one essential element in therapeutic success. Therefore, your answer to the following question is rooted at the core of your decision about seeking out couple therapy:
Is there a problem in my relationship that would benefit from positive change?
If your answer is “yes,” then therapy could be helpful.
We can spend hours exploring decision-making steps, strategies, models, and approaches. They exist in abundance to assist in every type of decision. But when it comes to therapy, specifically couple therapy, the one and only prerequisite is a desire for change, positive change.
If you and your partner are having trouble creating and sustaining positive change in your relationship, it is time for couple therapy.
You are on your way to making a solid decision about changing problems that cause stress in your relationship. By asking yourself the question above, you will decide whether it is time for you and your partner to seek couple therapy to create positive change in your relationship.
