Heal after there’s been hurt

In some cases, events may have occurred that cause a couple to grow apart. Issues like infidelity, keeping secrets, mishandling shared money, or deprioritizing the relationship can cause problems when it comes to trust and overall intimacy. There can also be times when you reach an impasse with a difference and need to address that in a constructive way. When exploring how couples counseling can help these matters, Matthews says that couples therapy can “Encourage acceptance of one another, restore emotional and physical intimacy, decrease emotional attachment and avoidance, restore loss of trust, and provide a safe environment that allows the couple the opportunity to heal.”
