What to expect in Couples Counselling In Yara Psychotherapy? What are the steps?

   During the initial couples counselling session, the focus will be on understanding the history of your relationship and the current challenges you wish to address. To gain better insight, your therapist may need to learn more about each of you as individuals, which may involve requesting individual sessions. Additionally, you might be asked to complete questionnaires, as these can provide your therapist with a more comprehensive understanding of your relationship dynamics.
   Once the initial sessions are complete, and sufficient information has been gathered, your therapist will help you develop effective communication tools and a deeper understanding of each other. Through a step-by-step approach, your therapist will guide you in addressing challenges from behavioral, cognitive, and emotional perspectives. Couples therapy, like individual therapy, is a collaborative journey where your feedback plays a crucial role in tailoring sessions and treatment plans to best suit your unique needs and preferences.
