Many people are looking for a therapy, because they are unhappy with the relationships in their lives.
Humans are "gregarious animals" and we cannot help but live in relationships: in relationships with the opposite sex, to our family of origin, to our friends, our children and all other people, that surround us in our daily life. Disturbed bonds are a very important factor for the development of fears.
Therapy for couples is a special kind of therapy, because in here, the two conflicting parties have a session together. Therefore, a therapy for couples does always focus on the feelings of both partners and especially on the communication between the two.
The therapist is not in the role of a mediator, because the couple should learn about the way how to live with each other by itself. But, above all, the therapist is not a judge who decides who's behaving wrong and who's not.
