All married couples experience good times and bad together. Whether you are in a long-standing marriage, are newly committed, feel really satisfied or quite disheartened it may be difficult to understand how your marriage has evolved over time.
Marriage counselling can be helpful when you notice a fundamental shift in how close, secure, respected or connected you may feel in the relationship. By helping you go deeper into understanding yourself, your partner and the dynamics of your marital relationship, you can find lasting solutions, to ensure your marriage is strong, no matter what life brings your way now or in the future.
Marriage counselling can help if you:
- Enrich a healthy relationship, renew a tired one or repair a relationship that has gone awry
- get stuck over and, over again in the same arguments or misunderstandings
- are unable to resolve your differences
- have shut down or disengaged
- feel alone, confused, disappointed, or disheartened
- felt close but have now drifted apart
- crave more intimacy and sexuality
- want to create a closer, more loving bond.
“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” – Dave Meurer
