Couple Counselling Therapy by MindYog What is Couple Counselling?

Couple Counselling is for couples who are in a relationship, married or not. It is often referred to as marriage counselling. The goal of Couple Therapy is to improve the relationship of the couple. This type of therapy can also help couple decide whether or not they should continue staying together. Although the focus of Couple Therapy is on the couple, there are times when the individual psychological issues of one or both parties need to be addressed.

MindYog’s Couple Counselling often includes sessions designed to improve problem solving, build communication skills, and identify life goals and relationship responsibilities. Other common issues include infidelity, financial problems, illness and other life changes, and anger.

Depending on the level of distress in the relationship, MindYog’s Couple Counselling sessions can be short term or over a period of several months.

What are the techniques used in MindYog’s Couple Counselling sessions?

The therapists at MindYog have a number of techniques to counsel couples. A few of the techniques often used by them are:

  • Gottman Method: The Gottman Method Couples Therapy has the benefit of three decades of research and practice in clinical settings with more than three thousand couples. The Gottman Method uses couples counselling techniques to increase affection, closeness, and respect. These techniques help resolve conflict even in sitautions where no progress seems likely. The partners learn to understand one another and to discuss problems calmly.
  • Narrative Therapy: This is another kind of couple counselling technique used at MindYog. Narrative Therapy seeks to separate the problem from the person by externalizing issues of concern. Our Expert Therapist will ask the client to describe the problems in narrative form, and then help to rewrite the negative parts of the story. By acknowledging a problem doesn’t define a person but is something a person has, one gains a new perspective on the situation. Narrative therapy helps one view his problem from different angles: culturally, politically, and socially. By stating negative issues in the narrative form, one becomes the dynamic in the story. The dynamic has the ability to change the story. Narrative therapy allows one to explore the past to bring to light negativities that otherwise remain hidden. By exploring conceptions and behaviours, one gains insight into facts that have been troubling the partners. Thus, one may find new ways to deal with the problems, effectively rewriting the narrative of one’s relationship.
  • Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy: Emotionally focused therapy was Introduced to MindYog by Ms. Swati Agarwal. This type of marriage counselling was first developed for couples, but it has proven useful for family counselling as well. Ms. Swati Agarwal’s method is used by all our therapists at all our centres. Although emotionally focused therapy is helpful in most situations, it especially should be considered if depression is a suspected culprit of relationship woes.
    Typically, a short-term approach, emotionally focused therapy has three main goals.
    • It encourages the expansion and reorganization of key emotional responses.
    • It seeks to secure a tight bond between the partners.
    • The therapy repositions each partner’s stance during interactions and creates new, beneficial interactions in the partnership.
    • Emotionally focused therapy has been found to move 70 to 75 percent of relationships from a troubled state to a state of recovery. Significant improvement has been realized for 90 percent of couples using this therapy at MindYog’s Mental Health Centre.

  • Positive Psychology Technique: MindYog’s Positive Psychology technique of Couple Counselling emphasizes positive emotions, character strengths, and constructive institutions to promote the notion that happiness is derived from various mental and emotional factors. Positive psychology helps you identify happy moments as they happen rather than notice those moments in retrospect. Through this type of therapy at MindYog, one learns to focus on positive emotions and to live in the present moment. Many couples find positive psychology liberating and joyful. Specialists at MindYog believe perception dictates happiness from one event to another. Some people cannot identify emotions as they arise but can see them clearly in hindsight. One technique uses beepers or pagers. Therapist at MindYog beeps clients to remind them to record the experiences the clients are currently having. Clients expand upon these entries in a journal detailing the previous day. This practice conditions you to enjoy moments as they are experienced.
  • Imago Relationship Therapy: Imago Relationship Therapy at MindYog combines spiritual and behavioural couples counselling techniques with western psychological techniques of therapy to expose unconscious components that helps one choose his mate. In this way, the partners are equipped to relate to each other in positive, caring ways. The therapist at MindYog views the couple’s conflict as a solution to the situation rather than the problem. Examination of the conflict is the key to finding a solution to disharmony.
