Couples therapy questions Orlando and what are the right questions to ask? Many clients are under the impression that therapy is a last ditch effort to helping a relationship.

Most therapist stick to 50 min for a session. I cannot understand how that is helpful. I need at least 90 minutes for my sessions. You will leave feeling like you got some real work done.
A main goal is to learn to stop trying to manipulate and get the other person to conform to your ways. It looks at maladaptive patterns of communication and negative feedback loops.
By the conclusion of therapy my hopes are that you and your spouse feel like a team. That there is honest and authentic communication. You both will feel safe to use your voice and speak on your own truths. Conflict is resoled quickly.
