Couples therapy works by helping couples identify and better navigate their unique challenges. Following an initial assessment of the couple in terms of strengths and needs, the therapist would then discuss their therapeutic goals and any possible approaches or ways of working together as therapist and couple.
Couples attend sessions together, whether they meet in person or by video. In addition to regular couples therapy sessions, each partner may also be asked to attend a few individual sessions to supplement their progress. This will allow their counselor to get to know each individual better, assess each of their personal needs, and develop the very best treatment plan moving forward.
On average, couples attend couples therapy for 12 weeks. However, couples therapy may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples' needs, the challenges they'd like to work through, and the pace of their progress.
Being a part of a couple can be an amazing experience, but the experience also brings with it the potential for some of the greatest pain in your life. The closer you get to your partner, the more vulnerable you become; and while that in and of itself is not a bad thing at all, it means that your partner has the potential to hurt you more than anyone else can. It’s important to realize that this relationship is reciprocal, meaning that you have the ability to hurt your partner just as deeply as well. You’re familiar with the phrase, “with great risk comes great reward”, and that rings very true when it comes to being a part of a couple. You’ll experience some of the highest highs in your life with your significant other, but to get there, you’ll have to accept that the risk of opening up to them.
Navigating the rough waters of a relationship can be very difficult, especially when you, or even you and your partner, decide to face the challenge without a guide. It’s much better to learn from other people’s experiences, their successes as well as their failures, so that you and your partner don’t have to make the mistakes that have already been made or try to develop new solutions where solutions already exist.
