CBT Counseling – Couples Counseling Biltmore Village, NC
Things in our lives that have value are worth fighting for. Things of great value—whether inherited possessions from loved-ones or the abstract but no less real love we have with a partner—deserve our most committed effort. In modern society, we place value on healthy, lasting and primary relationships. From childhood, we watch and read many stories with fairytales of everlasting love. Why? Because we instinctively know that connecting with someone on a deeper level allows us to feel truly known, safe, and loved. When individuals become couples, they create the potential for deep and abiding love. However, because relationships are inherently complicated, couples often find themselves at a loss when problems and issues arise that threaten the solidity of their relationship. CBT Counseling Centers offers expert couples counseling to those living in the Biltmore Village, NC area.

Use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Couples Counseling
Our approach to couples counseling is often a therapeutic intervention known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective counseling intervention that is based on challenging ineffective, unhealthy, and/or self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. Our counselors employ a rational approach to their work with our clients, which results in the encouragement of our clients which in turn employs their critical thinking skills to examine the issues in question. Because of the naturally complicated nature of couples’ relationships, cognitive behavioral therapy can be extremely effective in assisting each partner to understand their own perceptions of their relationship with greater clarity.
Another benefit of cognitive behavioral therapy is that the benefits often reach beyond the initial reason our clients begin working with us. This is because our thoughts have an impact on virtually every aspect of our lives. When we address the perceptions that may be problematic for us in one aspect of our lives, we often see benefits from challenging sub-optimal perceptions in other aspects of our lives.
