When the primary issues are to do with significant relationship challenges between partners, then couple therapy is the preferred choice of intervention. Therapy will address how the beliefs we hold define the way we see ourselves positively and negatively. Thus therapy assists each individuals to deconstruct and evaluate themselves so that they can move forward.
The approach to couples work is centred on facilitating positive communication patterns and conflict resolution, as well as assisting the partners to appreciate each other’s ” differences”. When an adult client is seen individually, it is often useful and helpful to involve their partners in a few sessions.
