Whether you’re considering trying therapy alone or with your partner, the decision to sign up for therapy can be overwhelming. And we understand why! There are many considerations to finding the right therapist for your needs, from online versus in-person therapy to the varying cost of therapy sessions.
If you’re struggling with challenges in your relationship or marriage, you’re not alone. Many different complicated obstacles can weigh heavy on a relationship. Your varying personality dynamics, mental illness or mental health difficulties, communication skills, and major life changes are just a few things that can make relationships challenging to navigate.
The important thing is that you want to find support to work through challenges and heal your relationship. ReGain couple’s counseling can help support you and your partner with online services designed specifically for relationship therapy. Read on to find out what we do and how ReGain Counseling can transform your relationship.
ReGain counseling is an online relationship therapy platform. We provide discreet, convenient, and affordable access to couples’ counseling anywhere. Therapy sessions are set up with a therapist based on your schedule and only require a smartphone, tablet, or computer with web browser access. ReGain counseling can be used by individuals seeking therapy for their relationship troubles or couples who want to be supported together.
To sign up for ReGain counseling, you will fill out an initial questionnaire that provides us with some general information about you, your relationship needs, and your preferences for a therapist. You will also have the opportunity to add your partner to the account during the initial signup if you and they would like.
Once submitted, the questionnaire will help us match you with a relationship counselor. Matching you to a therapist can take as little as a few hours up to two days. Once you connect with your counselor, you will schedule your live therapy sessions in the format of your choice: live chat, live phone call, or live video.
Each week, you will participate in a live therapy session either alone or with your partner who shares the account. There is no three-way calling available, so you will have to be in the same location if your partner joins in.
In addition to this 30-minute or 45-minute live session, you will also receive unlimited messaging capabilities with your therapist. Take advantage of the secure chat room shared between you, your partner, and your counselor. It’s accessible 24/7, and you can check in with your counselor throughout the week if you need their guidance.
So, is ReGain safe and secure? Yes, we aim to safeguard your information and therapy exchanges with a high level of security technology. We use multiple methods of ensuring top-quality security:
ReGain wants you to be satisfied with the services we provide. If you are running into any issues or are unhappy, reach out. We will take steps to resolve the issue, whether that means helping you find a new counselor, extending your subscription free of charge, or even issuing a partial or full refund.
ReGain therapists are all licensed, experienced, and accredited mental health providers. They have a master’s or doctoral degree in their field and have been certified by their state professional licensing board. In addition, all ReGain providers have at least three years and 1,000 hours of field experience and specific expertise in relationship therapy.
Our providers come with a variety of titles, such as:
There are many options for marriage counseling and relationship therapy out there. You can choose to look for a therapist in your area or look for an online therapy service for support. There are unique benefits to both, but in-person therapy can often come with some barriers, like access to therapists in your area and affordability.
Relationship therapy is a more specialized type of counseling, and you may not even have access to a marriage counselor near you. And if you do, they often come with a high price tag. Marriage counselors often charge $100 to $200 per session, sometimes more depending on where you live.
So, is ReGain a good therapy option compared to traditional options? With ReGain Counseling, there are over 8,000 relationship counselors at your disposal. Location will never be an issue, and you can connect with one anytime, anywhere. Now that you know how ReGain counseling works let’s dive into why our relationship therapy platform might be able to benefit you and your partner.
Most work happens outside of therapy when embarking on the journey to improve your relationship or marriage. It’s a major step to recognize that your communication techniques, behaviors, or arguments harm you and your relationship. It can be even harder to get on the same page enough to agree to seek out outside support. You should be proud of yourselves for getting to this point.
Unfortunately, we have “blind spots” in most relationships in the dynamic. Blind spots are the areas of how we relate to each other that neither partner can even see are there! These are often the most innocuously destructive patterns in any relationship. How can we fix them if we don’t know they’re there? This is where an expert comes in.
By just spending one session watching how you and your partner interact, a skilled counselor will likely weed out many of your blind spots. They might notice that your partner often cuts you off before you finish a sentence or that your apologies to them come across as insincere and condescending. Your counselor can point these things out in a calm and non-biased way while also offering solutions – you might be shocked by what you learn about each other!
All of our ReGain counselors have an interest and expertise in relationship therapy and couple’s psychology. They possess special training and experience in counseling individuals and couples in relationship matters. Many of our therapists are certified marriage and family therapists (LMFT).
It is so important if you’re seeking out therapy for relationship issues that your therapist has the tools, experience, and knowledge in this area. While more generalized therapists or novice counselors might provide good support with some aspects, there is no replacement for a specialized and experienced marriage or relationship provider.
One of the incredible benefits of couple’s counseling is the facilitated conversations that can happen between you and your partner. These guided discussions can be very hard to achieve without the intervention and mediation of mental health professionals.
Much of the time, relationships issues lead to fighting, defensiveness, and an inability to express ourselves the way we need to. Over time, communication issues and resentment can amplify. Our therapists are trained to facilitate an open, vulnerable environment.
They will empathetically encourage us to speak our minds, treat each other with respect, and steer us back on course if the conversation starts to spiral. If you and your partner can express yourselves authentically, you can start to understand each other better. You might find that you can say the things you’ve kept inside for months or even years! Couple’s counseling can be a liberating experience.
Because couple’s therapy and marriage counseling are considered more specialized types of therapy, costs can run higher. Highly experienced and specialized marriage counselors or psychologists in your area may be able to offer high-quality services, but their sessions will typically range anywhere from $100 to $200 or more. This is doable for some with insurance, but it depends on the kind of coverage you have, where you live, and your budget.
ReGain counseling offers therapy services that are affordable for many individuals and couples. Our weekly sessions range from $90 to $120, billed every four weeks. The great thing about the price is that it also includes unlimited access to messaging with your therapist in a secure chat room. This extra cushion of support adds additional value to what you pay for. You don’t have to commute anywhere to visit a therapist.
Are you on the fence about which online therapy service to choose for yourself? Let’s talk about the difference between ReGain counseling and BetterHelp therapy.
Many of you ask us, “Are BetterHelp and ReGain the same?” While ReGain Counseling is the sister site of BetterHelp, they offer two separate therapy services. A subscription to one does not grant any access to therapy services for the other.
ReGain is for you if you are struggling with a relationship or marriage – or want to reach your relationship goals – and need the support and guidance of mental health professional. It’s also a good option to share a joint account and the bill with a partner.
But keep in mind, our therapists also have expertise in other areas like stress, anxiety, depression, addictions, family conflicts, trauma, LGBTQ+ matters, and more.
BetterHelp offers a very similar user experience to ReGain. Subscriptions and the portals are formatted similarly. However, BetterHelp has a more extensive roster of generalized mental health providers. For those who ask, “Is BetterHelp free?” it is not. Like ReGain, you will pay for a weekly therapy subscription, which will range between $60 to $90 per week unless you are eligible for financial aid.
If you seek counseling for a wide range of mental health needs, like anxiety and depression, sleep issues, eating disorders, addictions, relationships, and more, BetterHelp is a great choice.
Keep in mind that some BetterHelp therapists are specialized in relationship matters, but ReGain’s entire roster has expertise in relationship therapy.
When you sign up for BetterHelp, you will get matched with a licensed therapist based on your preferences and needs. You have the choice to change your therapist at any time if you feel they are not a good fit.
