A major goal of psychotherapy is to help individuals improve the quality of their relationships and learn how to preceive or relate to others differently; this results in greater satisfaction in personal relationships. An integral part of psychotherapy involves helping to improve the way we relate to others while breaking free of old patterns and realizing our potential.  In addition, psychotherapy enhances self-respect and liking oneself; the most important ingredients of any good relationship. If either of these elements are in short supply, you may consider psychotherapy to address them. Any relationship that diminishes a person's self-esteem should be examined closely.

With regard to couples, maintaining a mutually beneficial relationship requires hardwork, commitment and a willness to learn skills such as communication and compromise.  When one or both individuals lack the skills to mainitain the relationship, but want to repair it, the couple may seek professional assistance. While couples therapy may be beneficial for some,  one or both partners' interpersonal problems steming from abandonment or rejection can make couple's work especially challenging. A longstanding inability to sustain a relationship may  be the result of abandonment and rejection and can make intimacy and commitment very frightening. If the aforementioned description fits your unique situation, psychotherapy may help you to clarify your needs and acheive a rewarding and fulfilling relationship.
