How marriage counselling can help
Seeking counselling sooner rather than later allows communication of an issue when it occurs. This allows an opportunity for resolution before the issue compounds.
Talking openly with a psychologist can help your marriage grow stronger through a newfound understanding of what you and your partner want from your relationship and each other. They will not make judgments about who is right or wrong, tell you what to do, or persuade you to stay together or to separate.
Marriage counselling can help you understand how you have contributed to whatever your relationship has become. Your psychologist will start by discussing how you feel about each other and what you are prepared to do to make your relationship work. They will provide guidance and strategies on how to overcome communication problems, regain trust within a relationship, and how to reignite the passion and romance in your relationship.
In situations where a relationship cannot be repaired, an Alegna Solutions psychologist can also assist in helping couples reach agreement with matters such as dividing finances and parental responsibilities.
