Psychotherapy and Counseling
Types of Therapy
Do you ever feel like your relationship is not where you would like it to be? If you’re like most people, you entered your relationship looking for love, affection and having your needs met from your partner. So often, the responsibility of life and other factors leads to the prioritization of other things over your relationship. This is where relationships begin to deteriorate and if not taken care of, the relationship could ultimately come to an end. While not all relationships are worth salvaging in our lives, it’s important to evaluate which ones are and focus on healing those. Working with a psychotherapist from Couch Conversations Psychotherapy and Counseling, you and your partner will work together to focus on how to improve your relationship.
There are several different methods that are used to help improve relationships. Our Couch Conversations psychotherapists utilize Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) strategies, in conjunction with other helpful skills and tools to help you meet your relationship outcomes. When most people think of couples counseling, they often think about finding ways of improving their communication skills with their partner. This is certainly a big part of couples counseling and your Couch Conversations psychotherapist will offer tools on how to communicate more effectively, express yourself more clearly, and learn to listen to your partner as well. In addition to these skills, our therapist offers ways of understanding and regulating your emotional reactions in your relationship and finding ways of responding to your partner instead.
Couples counseling includes an evaluation on the goals of the relationship and how to progress toward those goals together. It’s important that both partners have the same goals in their couples counseling sessions so that progress could be made toward those desired outcomes. You and your partner may feel alone in this process, but that is far from the truth.
