Can psychiatrists see couples?


Psychiatrists can provide treatment to a wide range of patients who are dealing with a variety of mental health issues. They may choose to focus their practice on a specific area of psychiatry, such as by age group including children, adolescents, or older adults, or on a particular type of psychiatry such as addictions psychiatry or forensics psychiatry. Psychiatrists can also choose to focus on the treatment of families and couples in their practice. Inside of this type of practice, the doctor may treat their patients both on an individual basis and together with other members of the family such as in a parent-child or husband-wife combination.

When treating multiple family members or couples at the same time, and in the same session, the psychiatrist can help them to work through conflicts or recurring issues that are happening to find a happy medium and restore balance in the home. A psychiatrist works as an impartial party to help each person work through their issues individually and together with each other.

Does couples counseling really work?


When asking if couples counseling works, the answer can vary from one couple to another, as each person’s experience is different. That being said, when both members of the couple are open and willing to participate in couples counseling and are honest with each other and their therapist, the process can work. The goal of attending couples counseling and working with a psychiatrist or other therapist is to work through conflicts with an impartial and experienced party.

A psychiatrist has extensive education and training in mental health issues and uses this experience to help couples to navigate their way through their misalignments. As a psychiatrist has training and experience working with mental health issues such as depression and ADHD, they can be helpful when working with a couple where one or both parties is dealing with a mental health condition. They can provide guidance in the treatment and management of symptoms, as well as learning to cope with the condition, both for the sufferer and for their partner. Living with someone with a mental health condition can be challenging, but a psychiatrist can work with couples to find ways to restore balance in the home.

Is it normal for unmarried couples to go to counseling?


Couples counseling is not solely for married couples who have been together for decades. There are no rules or guidelines around who should or shouldn’t go to couples counseling. If a couple is married, unmarried, heterosexual, homosexual, living together, living apart, pretty much any type of couple can benefit from couples counseling. In some cases, some couples may choose to go to counseling prior to moving in together, getting married, or having kids.

The reason for seeking out counseling will vary from one couple to the next, depending on the issues they are trying to work through or what they are looking to gain from counseling. Couples counseling is a good way to stay ahead of potential issues as well and learning how to actively and constructively communicate with each other will help couples find many years of love and happiness together.

When should a couple consider counseling?


Seeing a psychiatrist or any other professional for couples counseling, or another form of therapy, is not a sign that there is a problem with you or your relationship. Couples can seek the experience of a psychiatrist or other trained professional for counseling at any point in their relationship, and for any reason. There is no right or wrong time to seek out the help of a medical professional, ideally with the best time being before there is an issue requiring resolution. For couples, communication is key to a successful relationship. A psychiatrist can help couples find the best ways to communicate with each other and also talk through hard topics before they create a divide within the relationship. Couples who are experiencing conflict in their relationship or just want to find better ways to communicate and work through the everyday ups and downs of being in a relationship can seek out professional help through the team at Psychiatry of the Palm Beaches.
