Couples counseling is all about you and your partner working both individually and together to improve your relationship with yourself and your partner. However, couples counseling doesn't have to be going to a psychiatrist's office and telling all of your secrets. Rather, it can be about you and your partner going through couples therapy worksheets and programs that are designed to help you both feel more comfortable together and better understand each other at the same time, which is where these couples counseling worksheets can help.

Couples counseling worksheets

Couples therapy can help you grow closer

Worksheets for couples are typically focused on what's going on in your relationship at the time through presenting a series of questions, scenarios, or tasks, and then they can help you figure out what to do in the future should other issues arise. The key is making sure that you go through the couples therapy worksheets thoroughly and that you're being honest throughout them.

Therapy worksheets can focus primarily on helping you and your partner open up to each other more, or they can focus on specific problems that you have together. For example, if you're having difficulty with communication or trust, you can work on these types of worksheets to help your relationship more healthily get through those problems. 

Quality is the most important thing when it comes to these types of programs. You want to go through each aspect and make sure you discuss it fully. The more you openly and non-judgmentally talk about things, the more opportunity there may be for your relationship to grow, so make sure you don't rush when it comes to getting through the worksheets. At the end of the day, relationship worksheets will ultimately tackle the advantages of sustaining good and healthy relationships as you work through any issues that you may have.

Finding the worksheets you need

If you are already talking with a professional, be sure that you talk to them about the possibility of worksheets or other things you can take home with you. These worksheets are generally something you'll work on in your own time, but you can work on them with your therapist as well. If you do, they'll be able to help you discuss the problems that you're facing and talk about the things that may help you through those problems. They can also keep you talking about issues that you may be having, instead of letting you just skate over some things you don't want to discuss.

If you're looking for a therapist, consider checking out Regain to find out more about your options. You will be matched with a therapist who fits your needs and preferences, but you can switch therapists at any time. The online nature can be a boon for anyone who is struggling with scheduling appointments or anyone who doesn't feel totally comfortable with being in an office setting. 

Research indicates that online therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy for a variety of conditions and concerns, including aiding relationships. A 2022 study on relationship counseling held via video conferencing found that therapeutic alliance (the degree of trust and comfort between client and therapist) did not differ between online and in-person therapy. Additionally, the study “indicated improvements in relationship satisfaction, mental health, and all other outcome scores over time” that were comparable to those of couples who received in-person therapy.
