To be able to work with and gain from therapy as a couple both partners need to be agreed that there is something they want to work at. You do
not necessarily have to agree about what is most important to talk about. Sometimes that only becomes clearer in the course of the therapeutic sessions.
Typical challenges can be
problems in talking with each other
differing needs, interests and priorities
lack of trust
relationship to other family members (siblings, parents, etc.)
disagreements concerning child-rearing
challenges with children brought together from other relationships
There are times when therapy with a couple comes be a matter of dealing with the best way of separating. This is painful, but it can be decisive, not only for yourselves but to a high degree also for any children involved in the break-up of your relationship.
