Relationship issues and individual therapy/counselling - benefits?

Has anyone had therapy or counselling (individually rather than as a couple), and found it worthwhile?

I could do with someone to talk to, but I keep wavering about whether to go ahead and arrange to see someone. As well as offloading, I guess I'd like some advice on how to improve our communication.

I did it individually, it helped me immensely (and still is). At the beginning I was a confused mess and didn't know whether I was coming or going and whether it was all my fault etc. Friends are great but they tend to be biased so you can talk yourself into the fact that maybe they're only saying what you want them to say.
My relationship was pretty much dead though and I'm now getting divorced. I am a much clearer and stronger person for it.
I recommend it, whatever you want the outcome to be.

Why is communication a problem?
I would imagine therapy on your own would be good at any given time in most situations.
Help you with understanding and clarity.
Definitely give it a go.
If it doesn't work for you then you know that's not the way to go.
