There are 3 main reasons people seek couples therapy or marriage counselling;
confusion reduction – to assist them to decide if they wish to continue in their current relationship
change – they’ve decided to stay together and need assistance to create the relationship they both want
choice – they have decided not to stay together and want assistance in dismantling the family in a way that is supportive to their children.
Partners are often in different emotional places when they begin the process. After intake, all couples therapy files are seen as individual files with the objective of strengthening the individual and relationship. Weekly homework is given to assist with the development of new, more effective patterns.
Clients may invite their partner to their session after deciding on an objective for that clinical hour to ensure the time spent is productive in moving the couple toward greater understanding and change.
