Relationships can be tough, but a couple that is motivated for change and attends couples counseling has a lot of room for growth. It is not uncommon for a couple to struggle with a number of issues. Sometimes an issue that a couple can face is remembering to express gratitude for their loved one. Feeling unappreciated and unloved can cause a lot of tension in a relationship, which is why it is important to incorporate gratitude exercises into couples counseling.
Gratitude exercises can help a couple grow together and learn how to communicate the good things they appreciate to one another. This is instrumental for strengthening the bond in a relationship.
