“The great secret of a successful marriage is to treat all disasters as incidents and none of the incidents as disasters”. Harold Nicolson
Relationships can often be a challenging experience when we are not aware that we need to spend time and effort to work in the relationship. Most couples don’t take notice of the slowly deterioration of their relationship until quite late on the piece and they feel confused about what way to take to move forward. Marriage counselling can be an option for seeking help to resolve conflict; to learn more effective ways to communicate and to rebuilt intimacy.
Some couples decide to attend counselling as a preventative measure and they get involved in the process to learn more about each other and to nurture their relationship as they are about to have children or make an important change in their lives such as moving countries or opening a business, etc.
Marriages are all different and every couple is unique. Conflict is part of human beings interacting with one another and it is how we manage and respond to conflict that makes the difference. It is also wise to decide when an external hand can help to resolve those issues and to undertake the journey with your partner is the start of the commitment to work through the issues and support each other during the process.
We can work with couples helping them to understand their triggers and issues contributing to their situation as well as helping them to develop techniques to improve conflict resolutions and communication issues as well as other range of issues that the couple may need help with.
