Marriage counselling is a process of giving advice, assistance, guidance, help and so forth (especially by a qualified marriage counsellor) to the marital partners in an effort to recognize and to better manage or reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress. Marriage counselling involves recommending a course of action to solve personal difficulties and gives individuals the chance to talk about their issues in a comfortable and confidential manner.
This process may need anywhere between 1 to 3 sessions. However, for a much better and long-term result, what is required is “individual therapy” (5 to 7 sessions), followed by couple therapy (another 5 sessions approximately). Therapy basically means treatment without medicines, but here it means more of healing and training the individuals to improve and maintain their relationships. Individual relationship therapy is more about seemingly intractable problems with a relationship history, where emotions are the target and the agent of change. It has lot to do with the past, even the childhood. The best time to prevent a divorce is before marriage. hence, pre-marital counseling can be very useful in today’s circumstances.
