Common Relationship Issues Discussed in Couples Therapy At Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa FL,

Throughout our relationships, there may be small conflicts that arise every now and then. In other cases, there may be large issues that appear or prove to be monumental. Each scenario can be explored with the help of a professional therapist at Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, who can guide couples through the “bumps in the road” or the seemingly overwhelming roadblocks. Some of the most common issues couples experience are:

1. Communication

The foundation of all relationships, communication can be face to face, over the phone, text messaging, and social media. Counselors can teach couples how to communicate with each other in positive ways. The type of communication people experience while growing up strongly affects how they communicate in adult relationships. Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, can help couples to adapt a communication style that works well instead of falling back on problematic habits they learned in their past.

2. Sexual issues

Sexuality is complex and personal, entailing more than just sexual activity. An individual’s personal definition of sexuality may include feelings of attraction toward another, how they choose to be intimate, and feelings relating to body image and personal values. There are as many individual expressions of sexuality as there are preferences for music. When individuals experience confusion or distress about aspects of sexuality–anxiety, embarrassment, anger and hurt–counselors at Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, can be of great help and act as your support system.

3. Infidelity and Unfaithfulness

One of the most hurtful and damaging experiences a couple undergoes is infidelity, but it doesn’t mean the relationship is beyond repair or has to end. In couples therapy or marriage counseling in Tampa Fl, and Brandon FL, individuals have a safe place to begin the journey toward resolving the issue. Experienced therapists at Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, can help find meaningful and practical ways to work through the rough waters of unfaithfulness.

4. Blended Families

Blended families—or stepfamilies—are becoming increasingly common in the United States. Studies show that almost half of the marriages in the country end in divorce, and nearly half of the nation’s children are living with a biological parent and the parent’s partner. When two parents and their respective children join as a family, it can create challenges, such as different parenting styles and family routines. The new family structure and adapting to it may cause stress and conflicts. In some cases, one person may never have had children and is entering the family as a parent for the very first time. In each of these instances, the additional stress in the marriage can sometimes seem overbearing. With many issues and conflicting emotions from all sides, couples may find it difficult to live in harmony with their new “families” all under the one roof. This tension on a new marriage can cause stress that therapists at Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, can help you work through.

These examples are only a few of the many issues couples may experience in their marriage. Whether couples experience a few ups and downs or a seemingly unsurmountable issue, there is help. Consider working with a couples therapist or marriage counselor at Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL.
