What to expect from marriage counselling
What to Expect
Sessions are confidential, aiming to help you feel safe, heard, understood and valued.
You will both be asked what you would like to achieve from your couple counselling sessions.
Often relationships break down due to poor communication, so the way you communicate with one another will be explored. Good communication is the key to any relationship, being able to understand and listen to one another to discuss concerns as they arise rather than stay silent and build resentment. Some couples are looking for a way to separate without animosity, this too can be explored.
The initial session will endeavour to help you explore what you want to achieve.
You will both have an equal opportunity to express the concerns that have brought you to seek counselling.
The safe space provided in counselling encourages and enables couples to speak out about their concerns, and listen to one another without feeling threatened and/or becoming defensive.
A good relationship is built on mutuality and compromise, or put simply, sharing. Sharing love, hopes, and dreams as well as sharing difficult times.
