As You Consider Marriage Counseling, You May Be Wondering:
What if one of us seems more invested than the other?
Ideally, both people are on the same page about their commitment to marriage counseling in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL. However, that is not always the case. Sometimes feelings of fear, anger, or hopelessness interfere, may cause one of you to seem more hesitant. But as long as both of you express a desire for the marriage to continue, there is hope.
What if one of us has had an affair?
Infidelity of any kind—whether it be emotional, physical, or an addiction to pornography—can strain a marriage to near breaking point. It may be difficult to fathom trusting again. Reconciliation may seem like only a dream. But if you are willing to go through the process of therapy in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, you may not only recover, you may create an even stronger relationship than you had pre-infidelity.
What if couples counseling makes things worse?
Couples counseling in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, will likely open some painful wounds. That is inevitable. Dealing with emotional or relationship pain is often like a splinter. The splinter itself hurts, but unless we touch the tender points, we can’t get to the root of the problem. The goal is to remove the splinter, root and all, to find complete healing. The result is less yelling, more connecting.
