What can I expect from couple’s therapy?
While there are many approaches to couple’s therapy, most therapists will guide couples through the following steps:
- Explore when and how the disconnection or conflict began.
- Identify the ways that each partner tends to cope with issues in the relationship. Pro tip: These coping strategies are often the very thing that pushes our partner away!
- Begin the process of healing wounds in the relationship.
- Find new ways to relate to each other so that partners can learn to rebuild a healthy connection.
