Even the most compatible and loving couples may have rough periods.It is not uncommon for a couple to disagree on an important decision, causing conflicts that may lead to disagreements, broken communication and/or dissolve the unity of the relationship. Couples Therapy can help bridge the gap and restore balance in a relationship.
There are many reasons why this situation might arise, including, partners not being honest with each other (which may include infidelity), lack of communication, or maybe one (or both) partners have changed their views on one another.
The primary aim of couples therapy at Think Psychological Services is to improve communication and listening skills between the couple.If couples can openly talk and listen about the issues and concerns with an open mind, many of these situations can be resolved through couples therapy.
Approach to couples therapy varies depending on the situation but may include joint counselling sessions with both partners present complemented with individual sessions for each partner.
