Couples Therapy FAQ's

The duration of couples therapy in Toronto, as well as in many other locations, can vary widely depending on several factors. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer to this question.

Here are some factors that can influence the length of couples therapy: 

Issue complexity – the complexity of the issues you and your partner are dealing with plays a significant role. Some couples may have relatively straightforward concerns that can be addressed in a shorter time frame, while others may face more complex challenges that require a longer-term commitment to see progress. 

Therapeutic approach – the approach used by your therapist can also affect the duration of therapy. Some couples may benefit from short-term, solution-focused therapy that can be completed in a few sessions, while others may require longer-term therapy that delves deeper into underlying issues. 

Commitment to change – the level of commitment and engagement from both partners is crucial. Couples who actively participate in therapy, complete assigned tasks, and work on implementing strategies outside of sessions may achieve their goals more quickly. 

Goals and progress – the specific goals you set for therapy and the progress made during sessions will influence the length of treatment. As you make progress and achieve your objectives, you may decide together with your therapist when it’s appropriate to conclude therapy. 

Frequency of sessions – the frequency of sessions can vary. Some couples opt for weekly sessions, while others may prefer bi-weekly or monthly appointments. The frequency you choose will impact the overall duration of therapy. All in all, the length of couples therapy can range from a few sessions to several months, or even longer, depending on the unique circumstances of each couple. It’s important to discuss your specific goals, expectations, and progress with your therapist to determine an appropriate timeline for your therapy journey. 

If your partner is unsure about couples therapy, have a chat with them and find out about their reservations. You could explain why you think it could help your relationship and that it’s a safe place to talk. Suggest trying a few sessions as a test run and involve them in picking a therapist. Be patient and let them take their time to decide. In the meantime, focus on your own growth.

Yes, couples therapy can definitely help, whether you’re married or not. It’s for any couple facing relationship challenges, married, in a committed relationship, or even just dating. The goal is to improve communication, resolve conflicts, and strengthen your bond. So, don’t hesitate to seek couples therapy if you’re facing relationship issues, regardless of your marital status.

If you’ve tried couples therapy before and it didn’t work, it’s important not to lose hope. Every therapist and therapy approach is different, and what didn’t work in one situation might work better with a different therapist or approach. It could also be related to the timing or readiness of both partners. It is recommended to discuss your previous experience and concerns with a new therapist to explore different strategies and find the right fit for your unique situation.

The cost of couples therapy in Ontario can vary widely depending on several factors, including the therapist’s qualifications, location, and the specific services offered. On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $250 or more per session. Some therapists offer sliding scale fees based on income, while others may accept insurance or employee assistance programs that can help cover the costs. It’s essential to inquire about the fees and payment options when you contact a therapist to get a clear understanding of the costs.

It is important to choose a therapist who specializes in working with couples. These professionals are trained to address the unique dynamics and challenges that couples face in their relationships. They have specific expertise in helping couples improve communication, resolve conflicts, and strengthen their emotional bonds. When seeking a therapist for couples therapy, it’s essential to look for someone with experience and training in this area, as they can provide you with the most effective support and guidance for your relationship.

It can vary widely depending on several factors, including the specific issues a couple is facing, their level of commitment to the therapy process, the skills of the therapist, and the strategies used during therapy. Research suggests that couples therapy can be effective for many couples, with approximately 70% of couples experiencing some improvement in their relationship after therapy. 


It’s important to note that success in couples therapy doesn’t always mean complete resolution of all issues; sometimes, it involves improved communication, better understanding, and more effective conflict resolution. The key to success can be attributed to the couple’s willingness to actively engage in therapy, apply what they’ve learned outside of sessions, and commit to working on their relationship.

The success of couples therapy is highly individualized, and the outcome can vary from one couple to another.
