About half of my clients are couples seeking help in their relationship. I help each partner to take responsibility for their contribution to the issues and difficulties that bring a couple to therapy. "Communication" is the most commonly mentioned issue. The couple learns how to argue fairly, how to express their needs and desires effectively, and how to listen to each other. Sometimes they accomplish these things very quickly, while in other cases it takes a considerable amount of time.
