Relationship & Marriage Counselling
Before you make the decision to get married or continue living together indefinitely, there are some areas you need to be mindful of both personally and as a couple.
Being aware of our differences is a good place to start understanding each other on a deeper level. Investing the time and energy into your relationship will help you avoid so many unnecessary pitfalls in the future. It is amazing how similar/different your attitude can be on the many elements of life. Essentially, what do commitment and marriage mean to both of you? Couples will ultimately ‘try’ to deal with issues themselves, but when problems continue to occur, it becomes clear that professional help is needed.
It is often said that “I wish we had come a lot sooner than this”.
There is also the question of what our expectations of living together are such as finances, children, parenting styles, values, beliefs, differences, conflict resolution, to name a few. Relationships grow and change over time, so it’s important that we have the skills to be able to keep our relationships happy and healthy.
Good communication between the two of you is fundamental for a healthy and happy relationship.
As Tony Robbins says, “The only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take”.
