Problems in a relationship can sometimes be difficult to solve by the partners themselves. It is common to become locked into old patterns and to communicate through accusations and counter accusations only. When this happens, there may be a great need for discussion with an unbiased third part.
In couples therapy the couple, together with a couples therapist, try to find constructive solutions to problems and make positive changes in the relationship. To achieve results it is important to be motivated and willing to make changes.
Couples therapy can help partners find their way back to each other or give an impossible relationship a dignified ending.
