“You are imperfect, you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.” ~ Brené Brown

Couples who are motivated to reconnect, explore their problems from a new perspective, learn new ways of recognizing and resolving conflict, and improve the quality of their communication can benefit from counselling. Furthermore, counselling can also assist couples who decide to rebuild their marriage or partnership and make a renewed commitment.

Overall, both partners taking responsibility for their part in the problems, accepting each other’s differences, and being motivated to repair the relationship can be very enlightening. Also, research indicates that about 70% of those receiving treatment report a positive impact from couples counselling. Seeking professional help can be the difference between making the long haul or becoming a divorce statistic.

And if it comes to that, counselling can help couples separate in a respectful way.

It’s crucial to remember that this is a gradual process; opening up fully takes time, and effort is required to ensure that the sessions are effective.
