Are you a therapist or counsellor that wants to work with couples but doesn’t know where to start? Have you felt powerless as the couple you are working with argues in front of you and you are unsure of what to do?
Get some training
Working with couples is different, challenging and rewarding. As a therapist, it’s likely that you have learned a model aimed at working with individuals. When it comes to couples (having two people in the room) your model may not help you very much.
If you want to be an effective, potent couples therapist you will need specific training on how to work with couples. Why not sign up to have that training with one of the most highly trained couples therapists in the North West?
