How do I find the right Marriage or Relationship Counsellor or Therapist for me?
Once you have decided to do couples’ therapy, check that therapists you are considering are trained in one of the specialist approaches for working with marriages and relationships. Then have a look at each counsellor’s picture and bio and see who you feel most drawn to. Ask for your partner’s preference. Assuming your therapist is properly trained your sense of comfort with them is a strong predictor for success in your relationship and marriage counselling. NB: If you have a complex issue like violence or an affair look to see if the therapist specialises in this area and try one of these clinicians first. Our senior counsellors would all be suitable. Check them out here.
Setting yourself up for success in your Online Marriage and Relationship Counselling
Online Couples Therapy provides an amazing opportunity to be connected to a world-class marriage or relationship therapy expert. However it does rely on you using technology effectively. To prepare for your couples counselling session ensure that you have a backup handy. A headset can improve sound quality and eliminate feedback. Trial using Zoom or Skype before the session so we can use your time more effectively.
