Couple therapy is a means of resolving problems and conflicts that couples have not been able to handle effectively on their own. It involves both partners sitting down with a trained professional to discuss their thoughts and feelings. The aim is to help them gain a better insight understanding of themselves and their partner and gain an understanding of negative patterns within the relationship. The therapist will provide a neutral safe space and use their skills to carefully feedback the dynamics that they observe and experience within the session and guide clients to a mutually respectful understanding of each other’s experience.
Couples therapy (also known as couples counselling or marriage counselling), is about exploring patterns with a professional therapist so as to help the couple understand each other better. Relationship choices are arguably the biggest that we make in our life, and building one is something that takes time and effort. When a couple chooses to live together, marry or to have children, it brings enormous extra demands which impact on a relationship. Couples can find themselves unhappy within their relationship and this can be extremely stressful to cope with and talking these difficulties through can help enormously.
Nowadays marriage and relationship counselling is easy. You and your
partner will usually both meet with your Therapist, although the occasional
session may be individual if necessary, and together you can discuss any
issues and what you’d like to achieve as a couple.
Your session will be arranged in advance at a time to suit you and your
partner, and you can decide together if you would like an in person session
or do this remotely, either via an online platform or over the phone.
