For therapy, you do not have to be part of a couple and sometimes your partner is not motivated for treatment. Even then therapy can be useful to see what you can do yourself to improve your relationship. It often happens that the partner comes along one time and then chooses to participate in therapy. In the latter case I have one or more conversations with your partner to ensure equivalence between the position of the partners in relation to the therapist. For people who are unable to enter into or maintain a relationship, therapy can be helpful. Goal is then to explore your options, to discover what you need and to open up to a relationship that is satisfying and sustainable. Finally, individual therapy can be useful when you are unable to step out of a destructive relationship. You can then examine what you need and make the choices that suit you.
