I'm looking to write a novel about a guy who is going to couples therapy with his wife. My idea of what is discussed in these sessions is solely based on what I've seen on TV and in film, so I'm looking to get a real picture of what its like. Has anyone here been to couples therapy? What are you encouraged to talk about? How is it structured (eg. is there a different aspect of your relationship you are supposed to focus on each week?) and are the counselors themselves easy going on the couple or are they brutally honest with you? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
