Who are they for? What are the benefits?
Les thérapies de couple ou encore appelées thérapies conjugales sont destinées à tous ceux, married or not, who see their couple relationship deteriorate, "flail" and who do not see how to restore communication that has become difficult or even non-existent.
Undertaking couple therapy, just like individual therapy , is an approach whose desire is above all to recover lost well-being_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b- 136bad5cf58d_et de restoring harmony in the couple.
It should not necessarily come as a last resort when the union is on the verge of a final break, but rather when things get complicated and discomfort begins to set in.
Le thérapeute est là pour favoriser les échanges et offrir au couple une réflexion_cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_on the difficulties encountered and their possible causes. It takes into account each person's history, his environment, his aspirations and his dissatisfaction. He is neither judge nor arbiter. The purpose of therapy is not to determine who is right or wrong but rather to restore broken communication.
The therapies allow the couple to achieve a profound change in the relationship between the two members. The therapist will also take into account the ever-present transgenerational aspects (tendency to project unresolved conflicts with his own family history into his current couple).
How are the sessions going?
There are no specific modalities for the smooth running of a therapy . These are defined, together with the therapist, according to the needs and expectations of the couple.
However, it is preferable to establish a certain regularity which consists in meeting approximately every ten days or two weeks. The sessions last on average 1h30.
In my practice, I receive the couple together for the first time, then during a future meeting, I will receive each of the partners respectively individually. Finally, we see each other again, all three in order to implement a joint collaboration so that the couple can evolve together in a constructive way.
The well-being and survival of your couple depends a lot on the personal investment that you and your spouse are ready to make. Don't hesitate to give yourself another chance, even if you've lost hope, it's never too late!
