If you are thinking about or have made the decision to visit a marriage counselor then congratulations! You want to fix or improve your marriage and I believe that 99% of the time that is a better decision than going through a messy divorce.Have a look at Fort Worth marriage counselor for more info on this.
Finding the right marriage counselor is obviously the first step to this healing process. There are literally tens of thousands of marriage counselors in the US alone and no two are completely alike. You and your spouse will need to agree on one in your area.
If you have been able to identify the problems in your marriage, you might want to look for a counselor who specializes in those specific issues. If you are having a hard time communicating with your spouse for example, then you would look for someone who has a proven track record helping couples become more effective communicators. Most counselors have areas of expertise and when you initially talk to one you should ask what those areas are.
So how do you find the counselor who will be able to help you the best? Interview them! You can call most counselors and ask them a few questions about their approach over the phone. This interview is typically free of cost, but you should be prepared with a list of questions which are important to you so you don’t take too much of their time.
A marriage counselor will not solve your problems for you, but will teach you how to work through your problems together as a couple. Throughout the counseling process you will only have control over one person, that is yourself. That being said, it is important to find a counselor with the right experience so that you will be able to respect and follow their advice.
To get started, go to Google and just type in marriage counselors followed by your city name. Interview a few by asking them questions that are important to you. And decide with your spouse which counselor is right for you.
One last thing in closing. If you and your spouse start visiting a counselor and decide that particular counselor is not helping you in the way you desire, don’t be afraid to tell him/her or even to try visiting another marriage counselor. Not all marriage counselors have the same success rate, so look for one with a proven track record.
Here are a few questions you might consider asking when you call counselors for the initial interview:
1) How many years experience do you have?
2) What is your success rate and how do you define success?
3) What are your credentials and where did you study?
4) What are your areas of expertise?
5) Can you explain your approach and methodology?
6) What do you consider to the single most important factor in having success in marriage counseling?
7) How often do you like to have appointments? Weekly? Monthly?
