Family and couple therapy

Family and couple therapy focuses on discussing, understanding and resolving dysfunctional communication or behaviour patterns within the family and the problems they cause. The goal is to change those communication patterns that maintain the problems and prevent constructive and forward-looking solutions.

In couple therapy, feelings are considered to determine and mirror the communication patterns in the relationship. When feelings are discussed, confronted and expanded, change can be achieved.

Conflicts between family members can be linked to normal development of the family and its members. For instance, problems and questions can arise when children grow up and become more independent. Some families also experience more serious crises such as divorce, serious illness, death or suicide.



You can make an appointment for family or couple therapy online or by calling 09 775 0800.


The prices range from €110 for a 60-minute session to €150 for a 90-minute session. An outpatient clinic fee of 18,90 € is added to the price. For a series of appointments, we charge one outpatient clinic fee for five appointments.
