Couples psychotherapy: solving problems in relationships
In cases of problems in relationships, discussion with a couples counsellor may help you to recognise and improve the quality of your relationship. You can also make an appointment for an individual problem or crisis in your relationship. Various challenges faced by the family can also have an impact on your relationship. In this case, it is beneficial to discuss these challenges either with a couples therapist or a family therapist.
The duration of couples therapy depends on the issue at hand and the overall situation. Sometimes a couple of sessions may be enough to redefine your relationship, but in other cases longer-term support will be needed.
HOW TO ACCESS THERAPY
You can make an appointment with our therapist either with or without a referral from your doctor. In some cases, you can apply for reimbursement from Kela.
An alternative is to make an appointment for a one-hour preliminary evaluation session. During the session, we discuss challenges in your daily life, your family situation and your background. We prepare a clear proposition for further measures on the basis of our discussion. Preliminary evaluations are available in Helsinki and Espoo.
