What is Couples Therapy?

Couples therapy is a form of psychotherapy designed to help partners understand and resolve conflicts, improve communication, and strengthen their relationship. It provides a safe and structured environment where both partners can express their thoughts and feelings openly and work together to overcome challenges. Couples therapy can address a variety of issues, including communication problems, intimacy concerns, infidelity, and ongoing conflicts.


How Couples Therapy Can Help You

Couples therapy can help you and your partner by providing tools and strategies to improve your relationship. Through guided sessions, you will learn to communicate more effectively, manage conflicts in a healthier way, and rebuild trust and intimacy. Couples therapy aims to enhance understanding and empathy between partners, fostering a deeper emotional connection. Whether you are dealing with specific issues or simply want to strengthen your relationship, couples therapy can offer valuable insights and support.


What a Couples Therapy Session Might Look Like

In a typical couples therapy session, your therapist will create a supportive and non-judgmental space for both partners to share their perspectives. The session often begins with discussing current challenges and identifying goals for therapy. The therapist will use a combination of techniques to address both emotional and practical aspects of your relationship.

Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy (EFT): This approach helps partners explore and understand their emotional responses and attachment needs. Through EFT, you will learn to express your emotions more effectively and respond to your partner’s emotional needs, fostering a deeper emotional bond.

Gottman Method Couples Therapy: This approach is based on extensive research and provides practical tools for improving communication, managing conflict, and enhancing intimacy. The therapist will guide you through structured exercises to develop skills such as active listening, expressing appreciation, and creating rituals of connection.


Together, these approaches create a comprehensive framework for addressing relationship issues, helping you and your partner build a stronger, more fulfilling partnership. Your therapist will provide homework assignments to reinforce the skills learned in sessions and encourage their application in your daily life.
