How to know if you need marriage counseling

In life and in any relationship there will be conflict.  Of course there will be some worse than others.  In a marriage these conflicts can lead to serious consequences.The difficult part of it all is being able to tell when counseling is needed. Because you don’t want to jump for a counselor from one argument.  But you need to know when it is needed.  So how do you know when it is needed?

That is a tough question.  As a San Diego marriage therapist helping people has allowed me to see who needs it.Because sometimes there will be a situation when it isn’t needed.But the counseling that takes place is usuallly pretty beneficial.But a sign that help may be needed is if the couple has very little communication.If the couple still have fighting issues but are still making attempts to fix it, that is a good sign.But if the only communication taking place is when they are fighint, they need counsel. There is no interaction present.  And communication is the key to fixing it.

Another sign is the couple not wanting to be with each other. That seems obvious but if a couple hates being in the same room with each other they need help.  I have seen a lot of couples come to that point while helping in couples counseling San Diego.If you can sense hatred, that is not a good sign.This can produce very harmful effects in the relationship.

Finally another sign I have seen doing San Diego marriage counseling is when it starts effecting the whole family.If kids are in between it all and you see it is having some emotional effects, that couple should seek help.  It is one thing to fight, but when it hurst the children now they need help.They need to make an attempt to not allow the fighting to ruin your family.  If it does counseling is needed.
