What to Expect in Couples Therapy?

This might be the first time you’ve thought about pursuing couples therapy. Maybe you’re thinking about online couples counseling or couples therapy in person. Either way, you don’t know what to expect from working with a therapist beside your partner.

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy is one of a few specific modalities that a therapist becomes trained and specializes in. Other couples therapy types include, Gottman and Imago. Emotionally Focused Couples therapy will help you send the emotional messages you’ve wanted your partner to understand by first helping you fully understand what your deeper needs are.

Most couples expect to get surface level issues solved with couples counseling, but with online couples counseling with an Emotionally Focused Couples therapist, you will gain meaningful understanding of each other that can enhance the intimacy of your relationship.
