I usually start by asking the two individuals what it is that worries or bothers them about the current state of the relationship and what they would like to see improved. Then we talk about what they are looking for in a relationship, what their models for relationships were like (parents, friends, etc.), that sort of thing.

I sometimes use modified exercises as homework from Harville Hendrix, Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples. HarperCollins, 2001.

Another book I often recommend and use in couples counseling is Susan Heitler, The Power Of Two: Secrets to a Strong and Loving Marriage. New Harbinger, 1997.
