What Is A Marriage Counseling Session Like?

Some couples are hesitant to go into therapy because they don’t know what to expect. While trusting your therapist enough to reveal your innermost thoughts about your spouse and your relationship can be scary, it’s necessary for this process to work.

To give you an idea of what to expect at each marriage counseling session, we’ve distilled the major points below. While marriage counselors have different ways of dealing with the issues that couples bring to their attention, the following should more or less give you an idea of what a marriage counseling session is like.

Most counselors will typically provide you with their emergency numbers so that you can call them in case emergencies crop up in your relationship. If you can’t really work things out between you and your spouse in between sessions, it pays to give your therapist a call.

The decision to end therapy will come from the therapist or you and your spouse or both. You may see marked improvement in how you and your partner communicate with each other and find that you are already equipped to handle difficulties yourselves. If this is the case, you may decide to put an end to the marriage counseling sessions.

Your therapist may also see the improvements in your relationship and may opt to space your meetings longer until such time that he or she will give you the clearance to “graduate” from therapy.
