Why you don’t need a partner for relationship therapy

Many wrongly assume that having a partner for relationship therapy is a prerequisite, but they couldn’t be farther from the truth! In this post I’ll be going over some details about why you don’t need a partner for relationship therapy?

Therapists are therapists

Finding a therapist that suits you can be very challenging, especially if you’re looking for a specific type, but don’t forget that therapists have all undergone the basic training required to practice. Relationship therapists have much more practical experience in dealing with couples, but that doesn’t make them any worse if you need some one-to-one help. Many patients that initially started doing couples therapy might find themselves at a loss if the relationship ends and sometimes forget that to receive help they only have to ask.

Relationships in future

Although you may not be in a relationship this very moment, the future has much to offer and being prepared to make the best of it is never a bad idea. Life is full of relationships, and if you’ve had a few bad experiences in the past, finding a way to improve yourself may prove beneficial and has no downsides. Having someone who has the patience, experience, and attention to give you the privacy and hints you need can greatly benefit how you deal not only with future relationships, but past. Having a negative romantic experience can leave a deep emotional mark, not only affecting how you feel, but how you react to future relationships as well. Going through what happened and making peace with your past is not an easy job, but can make trusting and communication in future relationships much smoother.

Relationships with family

Never forget that “relationships” aren’t always romantic. As humans we are intrinsically linked to each other, especially in modern society. Many incorrectly assume relationship therapy is specifically about romance, but it englobes a much wider berth of relationships. Most commonly, people think of family, living together can give rise to tensions and learning to prod at each other’s’ weaknesses. But many people also have relationship issues with bosses, with friends, etc… In our society, it is easy to simply turn our backs on people or relationships that don’t go our way, but imagine if instead of having negative experiences with some, you could just get along with anyone? Relationship therapy looks at the way both parties behave in a two-way relationship, and what you can do to improve not only your relationship with that person, but with everyone.   Therapy is beneficial to absolutely anyone. That’s an indisputable fact so, depending on your current situation, relationship therapy is one that you need. After all, you do have a relationship with yourself. By learning how to navigate all of your relationships you will be better off in your social, familial and even professional life. Relationship therapy can teach you how to confront problems and digest emotions in a healthy way for all involved.
