TheGoal of Couples TherapyIt is to improve the quality of the coexistence of each member of the couple, their communication, their skills to solve family problems and helping to make their affective-sexual relationship closer and happier.

These goals are achieved through a learning process, in which the therapist helps them learn new communication skills and new problem-solving techniques that improve the exchange of loving words and actions.

When a couple suffers from the deterioration of their relationship, we don't think that one of them is to blame for the problem. We focus on the relationship, and what we can do to increase the exchange of loving and respectful behaviors between partners, to improve their problem-solving skills and decrease their tendency to hurt and criticize each other.

Our "GUIDE TO IMPROVING RELATIONSHIPS" provides the foundation for the work needed to change destructive behaviors in couples. The guide shows a series of basic strategies that help to improve the relationships between the two members of the couple, change their communication habits and finally solve problems, according to a progressive scheme:

We believe that everyone can learn to specify the behaviors they like about their partner, and the ones they don't, and learn to express these feelings of liking (or disliking). You can also learn to specify agreeable behaviors when you receive them from your spouse, and you can learn how to come to terms with your differences and conflicts in mutually satisfying ways. If one is adept at learning these skills, they will find that their relationship becomes more rewarding, rich, and deeper. The communication and problem-solving skills that facilitate the success of a relationship can be learned in one-on-one sessions or as a couple with the therapist but, in whatever form, much is expected of each of you in these sessions.

Each person should be honest about what is blocking a satisfying relationship, and practice the key behaviors to get the relationship they want.

With a cognitive-behavioral orientation, the main intervention technique applied is theRational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), founded by Dr. Albert Ellis in 1955, being the pioneer of cognitive-behavioral therapies, characterized by its high effectiveness and its short duration (between 3 and 6 months of treatment approximately), equivalent to 10-20 sessions, and with notable improvements in the first five sessions.

Our procedure consists of doing an evaluation session with one or both members of the couple, and once the problem and its possible causes that are maintaining it have been seen, a personalized treatment plan is developed. The frequency of the sessions is weekly or biweekly.
