What is the success rate of couples counseling?

Research suggests that the success rate of couples counseling is approximately 70%. On their website, the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) reports an even higher success rate.This means that, in most cases, couples find that they are able to improve their communication, solve their problems, and remain together through hardships.

In decades past, couples counseling had a much lower success rate because the therapeutic methods used just didn't work as well. But in more recent years, psychologists and relationship experts have discovered what works and what doesn't.

Modern couples therapy focuses on building listening skills, cutting out negative reactions, changing emotional responses, and focuses on creating a more secure bond between both parties.
