why do you want a marriage counselor?

Pre-marital counseling is helpful for many couples who want an overview of challenges that face them once they marry. Lissy Shajahan is an experienced mediator with advanced training.

Marriage counseling, also called couples therapy, is a type of psychotherapy. Marriage counseling helps couples of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through marriage counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding and strengthening your relationship or going your separate ways.

Marriage counseling is often short term. Marriage counseling typically includes both partners, but sometimes one partner chooses to work with a therapist alone. The specific treatment plan depends on the situation.

Pre/Post Marriage Counselling is offered for:

  1. People in relationship who may be considering separation,
  2. People seeking improved intimacy and understanding.
  3. Many times couple counselling or marriage counselling is required to the people suffering from power struggles and communication problems, to sexual dissatisfaction and infidelity.

In couples counselling, the relationship is the focus, although each partner should also expect to focus on self-improvement and self-awareness.

Though counselling is recommended as soon as discontent arises in a relationship. In some cases, a couple who has already decided to separate may pursue therapy in order to end the relationship amicably and respectfully.

Effective therapy will likely address many aspects of the relationship, although communication tends to be the primary focus of relationship therapy. When partners repeatedly employ conflict avoidance or engage in heated power struggles, communication problems ensue; resentment builds, and repairs are never made.
