Couples who attend for marriage counselling do so in different phases of their relationship and at different stages in their life. Some couples may have been together a short time whilst others may have been married for 20 year or more. The stage of the relationship may affect the course of counselling and what you wish to accomplish. Whilst marriage counselling can be short term, couples who have had communication problems in a relationship for many years may not experience significant change in just a few sessions.
At The Apex Practice our marriage counsellor will help you and your partner to identify the conflict issues within your relationship and to help you decide what appropriate changes you need to make. Having patience with your relationship and having realistic expectations about counselling will enable the therapy experience to become fulfilling and will prevent frustration developing within the process.
Entering into marriage counselling with an open mind can help a couple feel at ease and ready to embrace the work of relationship therapy.
