- Co-Therapy Option: Couple works both individually and together with two counsellors – one male, one female
- For more on the benefits of co-therapy, click here.
In our Co-therapy sessions two counsellors, one male and one female, work together with a couple to try to resolve the issues that are troubling them.
The normal practice is to meet weekly, one week with both counsellors and the couple together, and the next week in parallel individual sessions between each partner and one counsellor.
We have found that this four-person dynamic has several advantages: there is less sense of marginalization or isolation or of the therapist appearing to side more with one partner, both genders are equally represented, each partner has a chance to be heard both individually and as part of the couple, and one therapist can run the joint sessions letting the other observe more closely body language, facial expressions, etc.
We have had many successful outcomes with our co-therapy sessions. If you would like to know more about this or any other Abundant Counselling Services in Ottawa please call 613-727-4455.
