How is relationship therapy different than couples therapy?

Relationship therapy focuses on relationship issues, couples therapy focuses on a specific relationship. Relationship therapy is a form of individual therapy, in which relationship issues, first with the self and then with others, are explored, processed and worked on. Ultimately, through healing, strengthening and transforming you and your relationship skills, your ability to be in relationships will also be transformed. Individual relationship therapy is especially helpful when you your partner is not ready to attend couples therapy, but you still want to start the work.
