Couples Therapy Q & A

What is couples therapy?

Couples therapy is a form of psychotherapy for people who want to improve their relationship with their partner. Healthy Minds NYC is a premier therapy and coaching practice with a diverse team of therapists who focus on helping clients live, work, and play better. 

Our team includes licensed family and marriage therapists that specialize in working with couples. We utilize multiple evidence-based therapeutic techniques to help you and your partner reach your relationship goals. 

Who needs couples therapy?

Any couple hoping to improve their relationship dynamics benefits from couples therapy at Healthy Minds NYC. 

Many times, couples seek therapy when they go through a crisis, get stuck in a negative cycle, or have a hard time communicating. Couples also seek counseling when struggling with sexual dysfunction or other challenges that inhibit their enjoyment of the relationship. 

Though many couples seek therapy when dealing with a relationship problem, you and your partner may also benefit from couples therapy if you want to prevent future relationship struggles or you want to learn how to enhance an already fulfilling relationship. 

Whatever your need, our team at Healthy Minds NYC can help. Our practice also offers premarital counseling for dating or engaged couples. 

What are couples therapy techniques?

The experts at Healthy Minds NYC use top-rated couples therapy techniques to help improve your relationship. 

Emotion-focused therapy (EFT)

EFT is a therapeutic approach that works off the premise that emotions are the key to identity and the decision-making process. Lacking emotional awareness or avoiding unpleasant feelings may cause harm in a relationship. 

With EFT, your therapist helps you and your partner become more aware and accepting of your emotions, learning how to transform them to prevent negative or harmful behaviors. 

Gottman Method

The Gottman Method is a therapeutic technique specific for couples therapy. With the Gottman method, your therapist aims to improve verbal communication, affection, empathy, and understanding between you and your partner. 

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT is a form of psychotherapy that helps you recognize negative or distorted thoughts and then work on creating new, healthy thought patterns. 

The couples therapy experts at Healthy Minds NYC determine the technique that’s best suited to help you and your partner develop a more satisfying relationship.
