Marriage Counselling

What is Marriage Counselling?
Marriage counseling is a form of psychotherapy that is designed to help couples improve their relationships and manage conflicts. In brief, it involves a trained therapist working with a couple to address issues they may be experiencing in their relationship.

How does it work?

  1. Assessment: The process often begins with an initial assessment in which the therapist gets to know the couple, their history, and their specific concerns. This helps the therapist understand the unique dynamics of the relationship.
  2. Setting Goals: The therapist and the couple will work together to set goals for the counseling process. These goals can range from improving communication and conflict management to addressing specific issues like infidelity, trust, intimacy, or parenting disagreements.
  3. Therapeutic Techniques: The therapist uses various therapeutic techniques to help couples address their concerns.
  4. Progress Evaluation: Throughout the process, the therapist and the couple will assess progress toward their goals and make adjustments as needed.
