The worst distance between two people is misunderstanding
Couples therapy is a process through which a couple (who may be engaged, dating, married, partnered—or sometimes even parent and child or other pairings) works with a trained therapist to identify specific areas of conflict and/or aspects of their relationship they would like to change, and then develops a plan of action to improve each individual’s satisfaction and contentment.
Working with a therapist in a safe and confidential setting, couples are able to explore how their individual backgrounds, beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors may be impacting their relationship in both positive and negative ways. The therapist may assist the couple with addressing any immediate and pressing problems, as well as developing strategies for protecting and enhancing the long-term health and happiness of their relationship.
Couples therapy consists of regular sessions of 80 minutes each. Before couples therapy commences a thorough intake interview is done with the couple to establish goals. Sessions are charged at R1300 per session. Please note that this might be out of medical aid rates and thus a co-payment might be implied.
