Terapia de Pareja en Marbella

For whom is Couples Therapy?

Couples Therapy is aimed at all those couples who are going through a difficult time in their relationship, or who simply want to improve certain aspects of it, who want to improve as a team, grow together, and benefit from this bond.

What does Couples Therapy consist of?

It is very common for a couple to have a conflict that is difficult to resolve from within, and the healthiest thing to do is for a specialist to work on it from the outside, in an objective, impartial way, and always looking for the well-being of both members, both as a couple and independently.

de una forma objetiva, imparcial, y siempre buscando el bienestar de los dos miembros, tanto como pareja, como de forma independiente.

The phases of Couples Therapy in consultation are:

They are adapted according to the case and according to the objectives that the couple is looking for, but in general they are the following:

  • Assessment (both of the couple’s relationship and of each of its components individually).
  • Detection of problems (both of the couple’s relationship and of each of its components individually).
  • Strengths or positives aspects (both of the couple’s relationship and of each of its components individually).
  • Search for solutions (usually a combination of different strategies specific to each case, together with the work on managing thoughts and emotions typical of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, cohesion between the two, understanding, tools, etc.).
  • Maintenance and relapse prevention (once the expected results have been achieved and the relationship between the two partners has improved, we will try to ensure that this is maintained, and that the relationship is stronger and more solid, in order to prevent possible future conflicts and relapses).
