I have been in couples counseling with two different men. How it goes really depends on the approach of the therapist. In one case, I found it to be very validating and a great relief to express my frustrations.
The result of that counseling was that I saw the reality of how wounded my bf was and that he needed to work on himself before he was ready to work on a relationship with me. So we broke up.

In the other case, with a different therapist, we did exercises that enhanced our relationship.

Either way the main thing I got out of couples counseling was seeing the reality of the relationship and whether it was salvagable.
