Couple therapy is a process in which a couple works with a specialized therapist in order to identify areas of conflict and aspects of their relationship which they would like to change and then develop an action plan to improve the satisfaction of each individual in the relationship.
In collaboration with the therapist, in the context of a safe and confidential environment, the couple is in a position to explore how their personal background, their beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors contribute positively and negatively to their relationship.
In the case that the couple is emotionally disturbed the best practice is to conduct individual therapy sessions and then upon agreement the couple may return to couple therapy.
The therapist guides the couple through immediate and important problems, aiming to develop strategies for the protection and improvement of the long-term happiness and health of their relationship.
In order to initiate a couple therapy, please contact us and arrange an appointment. You will be asked to provide some initial information to our center. Following, you will meet with a therapist and have a two-hour clinical assessment session where you will have the chance to build an alliance with the therapist and share important, relevant information about yourself and your partner, as well as the reasons why you are seeking couple counseling. Furthermore, the therapist will be able to answer any questions concerning the center’s services, costs, confidentiality and what to expect from the course of therapy.
The therapeutic goal depends on the “therapeutic alliance” which is built during the first session and is developed during the consequent sessions, in order for a better therapeutic approach to be developed, on an individual basis.
Towards the end of the first session, a mutually convenient appointment will be arranged in order to conduct the sessions (typically, sessions are weekly and each session’s duration is 90 minutes).
