How will my Efficacy couples’ therapist help my partner and me?
When you begin couples’ therapy, you’ll start with an open discussion between you, your partner and your therapist. This will help your therapist to understand the situation or situations you want to address.
Using the CBT model, you and your partner will be encouraged to look at your thoughts and beliefs and understand how these impact upon your behaviour towards each other.
CBT can help with a wide range of issues you may be experiencing. Initially, your therapist may help you complete a list of problems that you want to address, with goals to go with them. These goals will be reviewed regularly throughout your therapy.
Common problems associated with couples include:
- Communication problems resulting in arguments
- Feeling or being controlled
- Inability to problem-solve together
- One/both being depressed or anxious
- Growing apart over time
