Signs Of Trouble, Is It Time For Couples Therapy?

Every marriage goes through its good times and challenging times, but when those difficult times outweigh the good, this means you need to pay attention to where the relationship is heading. In my practice as a marriage and family therapist in Dubai and certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist (EFT) in Dubai, I can tell if there are signs that your marriage could be in trouble and if you need to do couples therapy. Many couples may not be focusing on these signs because of fear that if they admit it to themselves or their partner, they will make things worse. Ignoring the problem or pretending it is not there will not make it go away; It could cost you your marriage. Paying attention to the red flags and seeking couple’s therapy could save your marriage. Couple’s therapy could help you work on the problems and take the necessary steps to fix them together. Below is a list of signs that your marriage is in trouble and that it is time for couples therapy.


  • You prefer to spend more time apart than spend more time together.
  • The relationship feels more of a burden than a privilege.
  • You are not having sex or being intimate together.
  • You feel disconnected most of the time and rarely communicate comfortably together.
  • You are turning to other people or things such as food, material things, alcohol, sex or drugs, for comfort instead of seeking comfort and connection from your partner.
  • You feel very lonely in the marriage.
  • You feel stressed out in your relationship.


If you are struggling with any of the above, then now is the time to take charge of your life and get the support and help you need to improve your marriage and strengthen your relationship. Couple’s therapy helps get you out of the darkness of misery and into the light of comfort and secure emotional connection with your partner.
