Couples seek outside support for any number of reasons and it’s best if you are proactive (did you know preventative couples counseling is 3x more effective?!). Couples attend therapy to learn how to better approach future conflict, to foster better communication, to get closer to one another, and – yes – to move through rough patches.
With the global pandemic and current political tensions, many are feeling both overwhelmed and fatigued by the news cycle. It can be difficult to take a step back or find a healthy way to cope, but with mindfulness and proper support, your feelings of stress and dread can be considerably lessened.
Though the stigma surrounding mental health treatment has lessened considerably, many still cite shame as a reason they do not seek support. In fact, one study revealed that 30% of people do not seek mental health services due to stigma and that others only access services after experiencing significant symptoms and impairment.
Indeed, it is very hard to look within to truly see yourself, but with guided support, you can effectively change your thought patterns and encourage true change within.
A better tomorrow awaits you at Insight Counseling.
