Couples therapy

In couples therapy, you work together to understand what is happening in the relationship and create positive changes that contribute to getting better together.

Couples therapy is offered to all couples at our clinic at Vika in Oslo or over video.

Who is couples therapy suitable for?

Couples therapy is for all couples who want to improve, work on, or repair their relationship. Regardless of the reason or when you seek help, both parties should have a desire for a positive change and for the relationship to work. The therapist helps you become aware of patterns, create good interaction and deal with emotions that affect the relationship. The aim will be to experience more security and positive feelings, better communication, and be better equipped to deal with challenges and conflicts together.

Offers appointments over video and at Kry Vika in Oslo. Offers counseling to individuals aged 16 and above.

As a couples therapist, I am concerned with understanding the couple's history, their ups and downs along the way, shed light on any conflict patterns that may characterize the dynamic, and through increased insight together with the couple help them become more confident in sharing their feelings and needs with each other. I believe couples therapy is for everyone and is a good investment for all couples - and there are no challenges that are too small. As long as it has meaning for the individual couple, it is important.

As a couples therapist, I am concerned with understanding what is happening in each individual and what is happening between you in the couple. All couples have their own pattern of interaction, which is characterized by both what the individual party brings into the relationship, but also by experiences the couple has had together. Through conversations with a couples therapist, it can become easier to see what it is that causes something to become demanding for one or both parties. This gives increased understanding and insight into oneself and each other, which opens up new solutions and feelings. I see couples therapy as an investment in the couple's relationship, and that it is for anyone who wants to increase the quality of the couple's relationship.

Psychologist in Kry, Kristoffer Kostveit

As a couples therapist, I am concerned with the full history of the relationship and the values ​​and practices that formed the basis when you two decided to be a couple. What did you build your relationship on? What drew you to each other and made the two of you such a good fit?

I emphasize the history of the relationship in order to understand what might be the meaning behind the conflict or the difficulties that have now arisen. By exploring this landscape together, I want to create attention to what the relationship may need to move forward, as well as help you with this further work.

I aim to gain a detailed understanding of your challenges so that together we can create a plan. I am curious, open, and engaged in the therapy room, ensuring a safe space for you to speak with me.

I offer sessions in Norwegian and English, as well as to those who speak Swedish or Danish.

As a therapist, I aim to meet you with curiosity, warmth, and acceptance from the very beginning. It's important to me that you feel safe as you explore what is difficult, vulnerable, and shameful.

In conversations with couples, I take an inquisitive, exploratory, and gently challenging approach. I am committed to recognizing what makes your partnership unique - your experiences, vulnerabilities, and resources.

Your goals set the framework for therapy. Together, we will find the way forward.

I have worked as a psychologist for over ten years, and have always been particularly engaged in what happens between people. I am now taking an in-depth study in emotion-focused couple therapy, which research shows has a good effect on couples who want to find their way back to each other.

I am an active, clear and genuinely committed therapist, who is concerned with building a strong alliance with both of you, so that both parties feel safe and experience the benefit of coming to the classes. We will find out together what is needed to solve the problems, prevent challenges, or strengthen the good you already have.

Pia has a closed waiting list, but occasionally takes in new couples. Contact our support if you want couples therapy with Pia.
