Couples psychotherapy is similar to traditional couples counseling, but it may use a more therapeutic approach when dealing with the couple’s relationship concerns. Psychotherapy recognizes the underlying mental health issues that can trigger problems in a marriage. A trained psychotherapist can diagnose and treat those problems individually, but couples psychotherapy helps both spouses to better understand how those underlying problems can interact with the relationship dynamic in both positive and negative ways. When one or both spouses are dealing with significant mental health issues, opting for couples psychotherapy is a wiser choice than simply going in for couples counseling.
