It can improve communication

If either your relationship or issues outside of your relationship are causing extreme emotions, it’s easy to take those out on a partner or react impulsively in the heat of an argument. Matthews says individual therapy is good because it offers “A neutral supportive party to help you process feelings and emotions and provide coping strategies [that] can help the person receiving individual therapy communicate better with their mate.” When discussing relationship problems with your partner, emotions run high, things can be messy, and it can be difficult to see the real problem clearly, which is why Matthews adds, “A therapist can identify underlying symptoms that could cause problems in the couple’s relationship.”
