It can boost intimacy

Even if just you go to therapy and not your partner, you’re doing some heavy lifting for your relationship that you can both benefit from. The SuperDrug study found that couples in which at least one person has gone to therapy rate intimacy as good or excellent. Since therapy can help one become a better communicator, become more comfortable with vulnerability, and perhaps establish boundaries that allow for closeness that is healthy without being codependent, one can see how even just one person in a couple attending sessions could make for a better relationship. Imagine the benefits when both individuals frequent therapy.
