In my experience, couples therapy has been a total and utter disaster. I honestly believe that individual therapy is much more beneficial.

If you don't feel you can discuss these feelings with your partner or your T, then I can't really see how couples therapy is going to be beneficial to you. I personally think the idea of going individually and first working out your own personal issues, allows you to be free of those and open to working with relationship issues later on.

I just think that couples therapy doesn't work for everyone-that doesn't mean I think you should give up, but I also don't think you should do it without clear goals in mind and a sense of trust and confidence in your therapist in how they can help you.
