4. Set Objectives
One of the best couples therapy tips we have is to set goals and intentions. Even before you start your first session, you and your partner should both come up with independent and collective aims for the therapy process. This will help frame your conversations and will help guide your counselor as you begin to work together. Do you want to stay together or break up? Do you want to communicate better? Have a more open sex life? Be more supportive? Be more independent? Whatever your goals are, be sure you are thinking of the future and not overthinking the past.
