Online couples therapy has become increasingly popular as a way to work on relationships in a flexible and convenient way. In this article, we will explore how online couple therapy works, answer the most common questions and give some personal advice from our experienced couple therapists.

How does online couple therapy work?

Online couple therapy works in a similar way to traditional couple therapy, with the major difference being that the sessions take place over the internet in the form of video meetings. The therapist and the couple can connect from different locations and with Lavendla there is no need to download any software or create accounts. This makes it particularly convenient for couples with busy schedules or those who do not live near a therapeutic clinic. During the sessions, partners discuss their problems and work with the therapist to find solutions and improvements.

Lavendla’s couple therapists offer both online and face-to-face couple therapy. It is also possible to alternate video sessions with face-to-face sessions. We adapt to your situation.

What set our therapist apart was her genuine empathy and personal insight. Not only did she possess a deep understanding of neurodiversity, but she also shared personal experiences that resonated with us, creating an instant connection and fostering a sense of trust!
