Couple Therapy in Jerusalem
Couple therapy assists couples in a variety of crisis situations, and can often serve as the balance between separation, and between continuing a good life together.
The “Shiluv” Institute specializes in couple therapy. Over the years the Institute has successfully treated thousands of couples and has gained proven experience in a variety of treatment methods, adapted to the special requirements of each couple.
How do we know if we would be able to benefit from couple therapy?
Do you experience difficulties in communication – do you quarrel frequently? have thundering silences? or endless discussions that you revert to over and over again?
Do you experience conflict over specific matters – for example, the childrens’ education; relationships with the extended family; money or sexuality?
Do you feel distanced from each other?
Do you find it difficult to create intimacy?
Are you dealing with a crisis? – for example, infidelity, threat of divorce, or a personal crisis which one of the partners is undergoing?
Above all – do you get the sense that you are lacking an external, objective point of view – which would be for you and would be beneficial to you?
If you identify with one or more of the symptoms that are indicated above, we recommend that you consider getting therapy.
The treatment process
When a couple is received for therapy the therapists will make sure to create a safe space for the couple to present themselves, their strengths and their difficulties as individuals and as a couple, and their desires for their married life. Together with the couple they will learn about the patterns of communication between them; learn about the start of the relationship and clarify with each of the couple the emotional ‘baggage’ they are bringing to the marriage, and the implications that these might have on the marital relationship. All of this serves to create a foundation for better coping with the difficulties, for healing and renewal in the couple’s relationship.

The therapists at the Institute have all been carefully selected, and the members of the team learn and consult and receive constant guidance from the management and their colleagues at the Institute.
