Couples Therapy Q & A

What is couples therapy?

Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy, or talk therapy, that aims to help couples improve their relationship. Building better communications skills, resolving conflict, and creating proactive solutions for future problems are just a few ways couples counseling can improve your relationship satisfaction.

A therapist is an advocate for both partners in a romantic relationship. They each benefit from an objective mediator who provides advice, guidance, and support.

Which issues does couples therapy address?

Couples therapy is not exclusive to married couples or those experiencing specific relationship problems. Many couples seek therapy to keep their relationship functioning in a healthy way. Others hope to feel closer to their partner emotionally and physically.

At SpotLyte Behavioral Health, the team often sees couples experiencing problems with:

  • Career problems
  • Divorce
  • Financial troubles
  • Grief and loss
  • Infertility
  • Infidelity
  • Lack of trust
  • Low self-esteem
  • Mental health issues (depression, anxiety, etc.)
  • Poor communication
  • Separation of children

External factors, such as in-laws, children, and chaotic work schedules, can also prompt couples to seek professional guidance.

What happens during couples therapy?

Your first couples therapy session is designed primarily to get to know you. This appointment gives your therapist a chance to observe your relationship and ask questions. They may ask why you’re seeking couples counseling, what problems you want to address, and what your desired outcome is for the relationship.

Over the next few sessions, your therapist may recommend meeting you as a couple, individually, or even as a family. Couples therapy is a customized treatment for you and your partner.

How many couples therapy appointments will I need?

Improving your relationship through couples therapy is not an overnight fix. It takes time, commitment, and a shared desire to work on your problems. 

There is no standard number of appointments for couples therapy. Your therapist may recommend as few as three sessions or as many as 12-24. The number of sessions you schedule is entirely your choice, and the team can work with your schedule to find the right time for you to see a professional couples therapist.
