Couples therapy is a powerful experience that can develop these communication and relationship skills. Closeness can be enhanced and there can be an increase in the couple’s intimacy and overall satisfaction. Couples are generally seen weekly for 50 or 75 minute sessions. Couples work can also be a wonderful adjunct to individual psychotherapy.
Healthy Couples are able to know themselves well, can express their thoughts, feelings, and needs clearly and can also see and hear their partner’s expressions without being overly reactive. They are interested in their own welfare as well as their partner's.
