Get Marriage Counselling to Save a Relationship

The right advice can help resolve marital issues and avoid a divorce

Marriage Counselling

Marriage Counselling, also known as marriage guidance, aims to resolve issues and improve communication in an intimate relationship. Couples counselling works with both people in the relationship, however sessions can start with one individual, working towards the involvement of the other partner.

The aim of couples counselling is to:
  • Understand how external factors affect your relationship.
  • Reflect on the past and how it operates in the present.
  • Improve communication.
  • Learn why arguments start and then escalate.
  • Resolve and negotiate conflicts.

In couples counselling, you will carry out most of the work in the sessions, but you will also be issued ‘homework’. In these instances you will be given something to achieve at home, then in your next session you can talk about how it went.

A couple needs marriage counselling if:

  • they feel they cannot continue living together.
  • life changes leave one partner feeling excluded.
  • communication has broken down.
  • despair and bitterness are overwhelming.
  • either have been in an affair.

Often this type of counselling is undertaken in response to a crisis, either a letter from the partner’s lawyer, the discovery of an affair or the escalation of an argument. Some time might be needed for the dust to settle to allow the capacity to think about what has happened rather than trying to make sense while one partner is still in shock.

Divorce counselling with an experienced and trained couples counsellor can reduce the pressure and stress for both partners. It can be rewarding work as the pressures to repair and patch are removed, allowing an honest and open look at the deterioration of a relationship.

If you come to Marriage Counselling on your own, please understand we can only understand one the side of the relationship.
