Reasons To Consider Premarital Counseling (https://goo.gl/3vgroc)

Premarital counseling is a great option for engaged couples who are looking to strengthen their relationship before entering into marriage.

If you and your partner are considering seeking out premarital counseling, here are a few ways that it may benefit you:

Discuss Issues
Premarital counseling not only allows you to discuss issues that are already present in front of an unbiased third party, but it will also give you the tools you need to discuss issues that come up down the road.

Wisdom
If you've never been married before, you may not know what to expect. A great marriage counselor has worked with many couples, and may be able to provide great wisdom and insight into the type of issues that you're likely to face.

Communication
Premarital counseling doesn't just focus on how to deal with issues when they come up, but even with how to avoid letting little things turn into issues. Relationships benefit from great communication, and premarital counseling will equip you and your partner with the tools you need to be great communicators.

Feeling Confident Disagreeing With Your Partner (https://goo.gl/kuw5fF)

When you're in a relationship, it's impossible not to face disagreements with your partner at some point. It isn't a bad thing to disagree with your partner. After all, you're different people who come from different places, and there may be situations that you approach differently.

Knowing that you're going to face disagreements is an important step in approaching these disagreements in a healthy way.

You may feel scared vocalizing your concerns to your partner, fearing that it could lead them to feel more upset with you, or even leave you. While these fears are normal, it's important to stand up for yourself and your beliefs. As you become more confident in your self-worth, and your worth as a partner, you'll feel more comfortable voicing differing opinions.

If you don't feel comfortable voicing your opinions in relationships, whether they are romantic or not, a therapist may be able to help you understand how to approach these conflicts. Working with a therapist can help you understand the cycles that are happening in your relationships, and how to combat them.

If you're in Brooklyn, New York and you are trying to decide if therapy is right for you, call Williamsburg Therapy Group at 347.765.0904. We are here to help you reach your goals, so let's get started. Visit our website to learn more: https://goo.gl/ReW6c9

How Does A Breakup Affect Your Brain? (https://goo.gl/efUXkx)

It may not sound romantic, but love and science really do go hand-in-hand. Researching the science behind falling in love is nothing new, but researching the science of how a breakup affects your brain is relatively sparse.

There have been a few significant studies that have been conducted to try and understand how the brain behaves when a person is experiencing a breakup. Here are a few interesting facts about how your brain deals with the pain of a breakup:

- Your brain processes the pain of a breakup the same way it processes physical pain

- You may have cravings for your ex that simulate the cravings of someone battling addiction

- Your brain is actively trying to make you feel better and learn how to act differently in the future

Are you intrigued? You can read more about these facts, and the studies that they were pulled from, in this article here: https://goo.gl/efUXkx

Do People Stay In Unhappy Relationships For Their Partner? (https://goo.gl/Ky6Fdx)

According to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the motivation to stay in an unhappy relationship may be the feelings of their partner.

Psychologist Samantha Joel found that people frequently consider how dependent their partners are on the relationship before they decide to break up with them.

One reason that people may not leave unhappy relationships is simply that they don't want to break their partner's heart.

Researchers conducted two studies to understand the motivations behind staying in unsatisfying relationships. The study found that the more dependent people believed their partner was on the relationship, the less likely they were to initiate a breakup.

You can read more about the study, and it's altruistic findings, here: https://goo.gl/Ky6Fdx

Dating Apps: Are They Damaging Mental Health? (https://goo.gl/8ZnYmG)

Dating apps have firmly established their place in the dating culture, but what does that mean for your mental health?

While the effects of dating apps on mental health have been under-researched, new research suggests that they may cause issues.

Here are a few of the phenomenon that users may experience when using dating apps:

Rejection
While rejection is common, dating apps often subject people to repeated rejection on a scale that isn't duplicated elsewhere in life. One study found a low rate of matching for men, and found that 50% of matches do not message back. This can lead users to feel disliked and ignored.

Human Disposability
One University of North Texas study found that dating app users report lower self-esteem and lower psychosocial well-being than other non-users, which may be linked to frequent and regular rejection. The overwhelming choice of users on these apps can lead people to question whether there is someone better out there, leading to dissatisfying and brief relationships.

Deceit
Since users often connect with people they don't have any social connections with, it can lead people to be deceptive about personal characteristics and intentions. Experiencing such deceit can be damaging to mental health and lead to painful emotions, trust issues, and self-doubt.

While there isn't enough evidence to suggest that people should give up on dating apps altogether, it's certainly an area that needs to be further researched.

Break The Cycle (https://goo.gl/FVpjeH)

Most people repeat cycles in their life and relationships, even without knowing that they are doing so. When you work one-on-one with a therapist, you can help identify those cycles, then come up with new tools to use to break the cycle.

Once you have the right tools to cope with situations and create meaningful relationships, the options are limitless.

Here's what one of our patients had to say about working with us, and how it changed their life:

"The psychology services offered by Williamsburg Therapy Group have helped me instill and keep a positive mental attitude, which translates to both personal satisfaction and professional success. I don't feel like I'm going to therapy every week, I feel like I'm visiting a very close friend that cares about me." - Josh C.

Therapy isn't for everyone, and it's a very personal decision to make. If you've made the decision to start therapy, find the therapist and the group that is right for you.
