Couple Therapy

Couples counseling, also known as couples therapy, is a form of therapy designed to help couples improve their relationship, resolve conflicts, and enhance their emotional connection. Here are some general steps involved in how couples counseling is typically done by Guiding Light Christian Therapy:

  1. Assessment: I will begin by gathering information about your relationship history, current concerns, and individual personalities. This may involve questionnaires, interviews, or other forms of assessment.
  2. Setting goals: Based on the assessment, I will work with you to identify specific goals for therapy. These goals may include improving communication, resolving conflicts, rebuilding trust, or enhancing intimacy.
  3. Intervention: I will use various therapeutic techniques to help you achieve your goals. This may involve teaching communication skills, helping the you develop problem-solving strategies, or exploring underlying emotional issues.
  4. Homework: I may assign homework or exercises for you to complete between sessions. These exercises may involve practicing new communication skills, spending quality time together, or working on specific issues identified in therapy.
  5. Evaluation: Throughout the course of therapy, I will evaluate progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed. I will also provide feedback to you on your progress and offer suggestions for continued growth and improvement.
  6. Termination or follow-up: Once you has achieved your goals or reached a point where you feel you no longer need therapy, then I will discuss ending treatment. Alternatively, I may recommend follow-up sessions less frequently to ensure that your progress is maintained.
    Couples counseling typically involves both you and your significant other to attend therapy sessions together, but individual sessions may also be recommended if needed. The length and frequency of therapy sessions will vary depending on your specific needs and goals.

It’s important to note that couples counseling requires a commitment from both partners to participate actively in therapy and to work towards the goals set out in the treatment plan. We can work together to improve your relationship, strengthen your emotional connection, and build a happier, more fulfilling partnership.
