How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage Counseling can help address and resolve conflicts between couples who are unable to do it on their own. An expert psychiatrist or psychologist can help couples understand each other better and avoid miscommunication.

Couples therapy uses an integrative approach and uses different humanistic, talking, and psychotherapies to address serious issues. The number and duration of sessions depend on the couples’ situation and the severity of the problem.

Usually, during the initial sessions, an expert assesses the couple’s relationship by making them talk about different issues. He/she may use different approaches and exercises to encourage the couple to engage and communicate. Such practices are helpful for transforming negative emotions into positive ones.

After identifying the pain points, the psychiatrist/psychologist will use different strategies to help the couple overcome their challenges. These strategies will help them deepen their bond and relearn to communicate.

These sessions help couples:

  • improve positive communication
  • manage conflict constructively
  • rebuild emotional intimacy
