Long Island Counseling Services Has Therapists and Couples Counselors Capable of Individual Therapy for Relationship Success and Support
We often see our relationship as its own unique entity. But a relationship is made up of two individuals, each one with their own dreams, their own personality, their own secrets, and their own struggles. While couples therapy is traditionally structured around two people, there are times when you may find that what you need is to talk to someone by yourself.
Individual relationship counseling is an approach to therapy that is focused on you as an individual, whether you’re in a relationship or not. We focus on topics like commitment, trauma recovery, anxiety, communication, trust, and so much more, addressing issues that are affecting your current relationship or those that are universal to any relationships you’ve had in the past.
If you feel as though you may benefit from individual relationship counseling here on Long Island, contact Long Island Counseling Services, today. We have two offices, one in East Meadow, NY and one in Melville, NY, and are here to match you with a therapist that is ready to help you heal and grow in your current or future relationship.
Why Would I See a Couples Counselor Alone?
Couples therapy is a very effective, extensively researched way to address relationship difficulties between two partners. It builds trust, improves communication, helps with intimacy, and much more. But relationships are not just about a couple and how they interact together. Every couple is made up of two people, and those people have their own needs, their own thoughts, and their own challenges they need to work through.
There are many situations when you will benefit from seeing a therapist alone and addressing your relationship. Examples include, but are not limited to:
- You are single and have struggled to find or maintain relationships in the past.
- Your partner is not interested in couples therapy or does not feel ready.
- You have issues you want to discuss in private between you and your therapist.
- You have traumas in your relationship past you would like to address.
- You struggle with anxiety, attachment, commitment, or other individual issues.
- You want to focus on yourself, and what will make you happier and more fulfilled.
Our Long Island couples therapists are not just couples counselors. They’re also psychotherapists with experience working directly with individuals across a broad range of backgrounds. They’re ready to talk to you individually and – if you have a partner and they are interested in therapy – they can talk to you both in the future to help you grow your relationship or marriage, no matter where it may be.
Therapy for Singles
Relationship counseling doesn’t have to be for those solely in a relationship. It can also be for single adults that have struggled to find, maintain, or enjoy relationships in the past. Our therapists for singles focuses on the roadblocks that may be holding you back from a fulfilling relationship, including:
- Traumatic experiences.
- Trouble with commitment.
- Struggling to understand yourself.
- Questions about your sexuality.
- Seeking the wrong “type.”
- Coping with divorce or loss.
- Social anxiety, or other mental health issues.
A person can be single for many reasons. Sometimes it is by choice. Sometimes it is not. What matters is not your relationship history but what you need to truly know yourself, what you’re looking for, and how to be the most fulfilled and content you can be.
Therapy for Individual Partners
Couples therapy is an amazing tool for working with partners that want to heal and grow together. But whether you’re married or dating, there are situations when you just want to talk to someone yourself without your partner present.
We are always going to be the best at changing ourselves since we cannot control the other person in the relationship and we all have issues we need to work through. We also may have things we do not feel comfortable addressing in front of our partner, and we want guidance and support that comes from working with a therapist on your own in confidentiality.
There is nothing wrong with seeking our a relationship therapist for yourself. At Long Island Counseling Services, we are here to accept you, know you, and see what where we can take you.
