COUNSELLING Helps MARRIAGES


From TODAY
Wednesday July 30, 2008

By Dr Bill Maier

Too many married couples see counseling as a last-ditch effort, instead of a tool to strengthen their relationship.

People have a lot of strange ideas when it comes to therapy. They imagine themselves lying on a couch in a stuffy office.

But that’s just a stereotype.

Counselling isn’t as awkward or severe as most people believe.

A counsellor’s role is to give you a better understanding of yourself and your situation.

This awareness helps you see things more clearly, so you can make better choices, or take steps to change how you react to certain circumstances.

And counselling isn’t for crazy people, or marriages on the verge of divorce – it’s for any couple that wants their marriage or family life to be the best that it can be.

All couples go through struggles, and the sooner you deal with those things, the better.

A good counsellor can help you work through little issues before they become big ones.
