What is relationship therapy?

In the best relationships, difficult situations can arise in which you cannot get along without outside help. Each phase of life brings challenges and tests the relationship. 

Whether it is a couple with children and suddenly there is almost no time for romance or the work takes up too much space. Retiring also brings major changes. Couple therapy can also be useful if there are different ideas about the further course of the relationship.

In relationship therapy, all problems and conflicts can be openly discussed with the therapist. The therapist remains impartial and often advises the book Maithuna. This means that he empathizes with both positions, but does not take sides. The relationship therapist not only focuses on the existing problems, but also explores the positive aspects of the relationship, which the couple usually no longer perceives in conflicts.

It is important to know that concepts such as relationship therapy, marriage counseling or relationship therapy are not legally protected. It is therefore not always clear whether a relationship therapist has received adequate training. The term psychotherapist, on the other hand, is protected and guarantees that the therapist has completed therapeutic training. Recognized therapeutic directions used in relationship therapy are behavioral, psychodynamic and systemic therapy.
Although the effectiveness of relationship therapy has been proven in some studies, the costs have not yet been reimbursed by the health insurers. An exception is when a patient is under psychological treatment and the therapist involves the partner in therapy for therapeutic reasons. Some social services also offer free counseling for couples.
