Couples Counselling

 

Couples counselling aims to always improve a couple’s relationship.

Therapy often includes sessions designed to improve problem solving, communication skills, identification of life goals and relationship responsibilities. Other common issues include infidelity, financial problems, illness, and anger.

Couples counselling typically brings couples or partners together for joint therapy sessions. Working with a therapist, you’ll learn skills to solidify your relationship, such as open communication and problem-solving.

Here are seven ways to mentally and emotionally prepare for therapy with your partner:

  1. Make sure you are both 100% invested in attending therapy together.
  2. Discuss shared goals for therapy with your partner.
  3. Start your search for a couples counselor by prioritizing comfort and fit.
  4. Clear your schedule for your first appointment.
  5. Get ready to share personal history.
  6. Decide whether – and what – you want to tell your friends.
  7. Know that it’s okay to be nervous about your first session!
