What is Couple’s Therapy?

A marital or romantic relationship is like any other relationship in the sense that it consists purely of communication. Love, trust, commitment, passion, interest, companionship and other such rewards can only be experienced in a relationship through verbal and non-verbal communication and behaviour. But, a romantic relationship is also unlike any other relationship as it is exclusive, and therefore more intense. Thus, the need for communication to be effective in a romantic relationship is of the utmost importance. If the communication is distorted, ineffective or limited, the relationship will be experienced as frustrating, unfilfilling, and unsustainable.

 

How does Couple’s Therapy work?

Each partner will meet individually with the therapist to discuss their needs, concerns or frustrations about the relationship. From here, a treatment plan will be devised that may include a number of individual sessions before joined sessions are started. This is so that each partner can kick off the joined sessions with optimal communication, facilitating more productive sessions with better results.

 

Sex Therapy

Couples experiencing difficulty in their relationship wil also frequently experience sexual difficulty. Sex therapy is available as part of couple’s treatment, where necessary.

Relationship Team Building

Experiential therapy provides a format for couples to learn the principles of a sustainable, fulfilling and smooth marital relationship. Relationship team building teaches couples the building blocks to a happy marriage. This consists of 6 sessions of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), a course specifically designed to build strong, long-lasted foundations in a marriage or romantic relationship.
