Help with your relationship

Couple in relationship walking dogMarriage or couples counselling can help you decide what the future might hold for each one of you and for you as a couple. In marriage counselling you are encouraged and supported to:

  • explain your hopes, dreams, worries and concerns
  • understand each other better – one of the greatest benefits of couple counselling
  • manage differences of opinion
  • improve relationship communication
  • explore whether there is still hope or whether to end the relationship
  • talk more and differently to improve marital harmony
  • learn problem solving techniques
  • identify your ’wants’ and needs
  • identify what is works well in your relationship/marriage – there are always things that you are doing really well!
  • move on from the disappointments, hurts and anger
  • move on if it is your decision to end the relationship/marriage
  • identify your own individual resources and how best to use them
  • identify your resources as a couple
  • explore the impact of ending your relationship – positive and negative
  • heal and move on when you are getting over an affair
  • get to know yourself better

As a qualified couples counsellor I know that often one of the partners is coming along reluctantly for relationship or marriage counselling; I make every effort to help that person feel at ease.
