What Is Couples Therapy
Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps a couple improve their communication and connection by addressing existing challenges that hinder them from having a healthy relationship.
Couples therapy is shown to be highly effective with studies showing an overall significant decrease in psychological distress and improvement in relationship satisfaction.
Here at Therapy and Co, we have therapists trained in different types of counselling including EFT, Gottman Method, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Sex Therapy, and CBT.
We understand that because your experiences are unique, your therapist should be suited to your and your partner’s personalized needs.
Once you complete your free 15 minute consultation, you’ll be matched with a therapist who best fits your goals, personality, and needs. Talk to us to know more about how to start couples therapy with us.
How Our Couples Therapy Works
Our counseling session works differently from one pair to another. It is not a structured program where the couple goes from one step to another and expects the same results as what others achieved.
While getting into couples therapy may seem a challenging ordeal, the first session is the most crucial part. Here’s how to achieve a good outcome out of your first session.
The Initial Phone Call Or Email
The couples therapy starts with an initial phone call to a therapist to determine if you are both fit to work together. The phone call may last up to 15 minutes, depending on how well you and your therapist can comfortably discuss standard details to get started.
The First Session
The first session is a getting-to-know-you stage when starting couples therapy. During this session, you can ask all questions regarding the process, and your therapist may ask about your objectives. The meeting lets you know how the therapy works and if you and your therapist are a good match.
Getting The Session In The Books
As you decide on pursuing couples therapy after the initial session, it’s time to deal with scheduling. We recognize that you and your partner can get busy with work and your personal life; that is why we are open to having flexible appointments. We emphasize having flexible arrangements that will work best within your schedules.
How Our Couples Therapy Helps
Our goal is to help you grow your relationship and make it self-sustaining. On the other hand, we recognize that not all relationships are bound to stay. Our mission is to provide a guide to reach a mutual and respectable understanding for partners who decide to part ways.
Our couples therapist will explore your relationship and individual values and identify existing issues that hinder your romance from prospering.
Upon knowing your issues and desired goals, your therapist will devise couples therapy exercises to address your challenges.
A fundamental factor in maintaining a healthy relationship is trust. A relationship should anchor in commitment and reliability to one another. If this is not present, the foundation of your partnership can easily crumble, resulting in instability and insecurity. It also branches out to other forms of issues within the relationship.
Physical and emotional intimacy builds comfort within partners. Lack of connection may result in losing interest in your sex life and affection. With therapy exercises, we can help you rebuild a relationship that links you once again with each other.
Healthy and strong communication in a relationship builds trust and confidence in one another. Lack of communication results in frustration, misunderstanding, and lack of interest. If there is solid communication, there is a strong connection, making you feel more valued, heard, appreciated, and loved.
