Many people think that they can become their own therapists but they do not realize that it is not possible. It is true that a person can solve minor problems on his/her own but that is to a certain extent because when the problems start getting out of hand, there is nothing a normal person can do. Many couples who are reading this article can testify that there are some problems between the two people that are sometimes unsolvable but that is not entirely true because such problems can be solved by a therapist. Many people have this mindset that they would not go to a therapist just because of their relationship problems but they fail to see that a relationship is important and if it is falling apart then external help is needed.
If you and your significant other have recognized the need for a couple’s counselor then that is good because now you can go to a therapist and the first step is the hardest to take and the rest of the journey would seem easier. Let us look at couple of things that you should know before you plunge into the journey.
Fee Per Session
Most of the clinics charge per session which means that you would have to pay the prices after every session that you attend. It is possible that some of the places would offer a package of the therapy but that would depend upon the clinic that you choose.
Number of Sessions
The number of sessions would not be decided until you visit the therapist who would then evaluate you and your better half and assess the problems in the relationship and would then decide how many times to call you both in.
