Counselling can help couples who are motivated to explore their problems from a new perspective; to learn new ways of recognizing and resolving conflict; to improve communication quality; and for those who decide they will rebuild their marriage/partnership and make a renewed commitment. Therapy can provide neutral territory to help couples work through tough problems. Counselling can also help couples separate in a respectful way, if that is what they are facing.

It can be very enlightening when both partners are willing to take responsibility for their part in the problems, to accept each other’s differences and are both motivated to repair the relationship. It is important for couples to have realistic expectations because it takes more than a few sessions to shed light on the dynamics and to begin the process of change.
