Couples therapy is the therapeutic space in which a psychologist applies techniques and tactics for the couple dialogue without discussion; specialists in psychology offer tools to work communication, mutual respect and recovery of the initial synergy, seeking ways to restore or improve the relationship.

Relationship problems

The main problem in a relationship is communication, both excess and its absence.Lack of communication causes a couple incurs misunderstanding that eventually decline in fights. This leads to wear of the couple and even a possible rupture.A common problem is the lack of empathy. Often people believe, by default, everyone thinks and feels the same as them, resulting in which both members of a couple den for granted situations not previously spoken.Other common factors that affect the proper functioning of the couple are monotony, lack of desire, wear coexistence, the rifts in the styles of parenting or economic problems.

More and more couples turn to therapy before possible rupture, but in many cases is already late. The right time is when the couple observes certain disagreements and is not able to solve itself.
