1 to 1 sessions, lasting 50 minutes. Our initial therapies are offered on a 6 weekly renewable basis. These are negotiated individually – with the Client and Therapist.
Couples therapy, marriage counselling and marital therapy are all based around relationship problems that exist between two people.
In Couples Therapy, the therapist will help identify the conflict issues within the relationship, and will help you decide what changes are needed, in the relationship and in the behaviour of each partner, for both of you to feel satisfied with the relationship. Couples Therapy involves learning about communicating more effectively, and how to listen more closely.
Couples will need to identify common life goals and how to share responsibilities within their relationship. Couples counselling is a combination of mediation and education which is what makes it effective.
Groups can be as small as three or four people, but group therapy sessions generally involve around six individuals. The group typically meets once or twice each week for an hour or two. Groups can either be open or closed. In an open session, new participants are welcome to join at any time. In a closed group, only a core group of members are invited to participate.
The specific manner in which the session is conducted depends largely on the goals of the group and the style of the therapist. Some therapists might encourage a more free-form style of dialogue, where each member participates as he or she sees fit. Other therapists might have a specific plan for each session that might include having clients practice new skills with other members of the group.
