There is no such thing as a perfect relationship, but when problems arise, it is important to address them. Ignoring problems can damage relationships and lead to issues with mood, self-esteem, and performance. It is possible to make progress even if your partner is unable or unwilling to attend therapy with you.
Therapy reveals beliefs and patterns of thinking and behavior, allowing a person to make better decisions based on this new information. This type of treatment works equally well for those who are not currently in a relationship, but who have had trouble with them in the past. Therapy teaches new ways to think and communicate, and helps patients change behavioral patterns that are causing problems.
One common challenge that therapy may be useful in dealing with is when a person experiences a breakup. Therapeutic support provides tools for processing the experience in a way that can produce a positive impact on future relationships, improving self-esteem. It can also help people manage other relationships with friends, family or coworkers.
