MHPC is passionate about helping couples to achieve the most fulfilling, healthy and enjoyable relationship which will work for all people who are in it. We consider healthy relationship to be an effective team which achieved an optimal balance between having a safe and secure space where one can feel connected, relaxed, enjoy themselves and recover from the demands of the external world, and having the freedom to realise themselves in the world outside of their relationship. The form that it takes varies significantly from couple to couple, and also changes at different stages in our lives and across the cultures.

In the process of evaluation of the relationship’s difficulties and its corresponding psychological needs, we considers many contributing factors, such as the nature of the problem, positive and negative factors operating in the relationship, emotional and physical capacity of people in the relationship, their motivation and willingness to change for the benefit of the quality of the relationship, their self-awareness, as well as the relationship’s current circumstances.

In order to ensure that we provide the most suited intervention the way we deliver couple therapy is taking the following format:

The first session is a single session with both partners – in this session the problem is identified and the course of action to resolve the problem is agreed on. It is generally followed by one to three individual sessions with each partner separately working towards resolving the problems and improving the intimate quality of the relationship. In cases when the problem is not clearly defined and agreed on in the first session – the initial stage continues up to the point when there are clearly defined tasks to be accomplished and a course of action which everyone agrees on.

As we mentioned it previously in the process of evaluation of the relationship’s difficulties and its corresponding psychological needs, we considers many contributing factors, such as the nature of the problem, positive and negative factors operating in the relationship, emotional and physical capacity of people in the relationship, their motivation and willingness to change for the benefit of the quality of the relationship, their self-awareness, as well as the relationship’s current circumstances.

Please be aware that couple therapy has a different format to individual therapy and there are certain rules that apply.

First of all – the client is a quality of the relationship and not an individual client – even when the individual session is taking place. The aim of the individual sessions is to allow processing of emotionally charged experiences in order to come closer to be abe to work together on improving the quality of the relationships, and different to the individual therapy it is primarily focused on the quality of the relationship. In case if one or both of the people in the relationship experience significant problem – it is their responsibility to work on that problem in their individual therapy.

Second, while the individual processes of working through towards the better relationship is not discussed unless it is agreed in order to allow for some helpful privacy – there is no place for secrets and any facts disclosed to the therapist within the individual session may be openly discussed with both individuals in relationship, especially if there is a risk of intended harm either physically or psychologically.

The price for the couple therapy session is 200$ during business hours and 220$ for a session after 6pm.
