Couples marriage counseling is a therapeutic service that aims to provide couples with a safe space to discuss and work through difficult issues that come with being involved in a relationship.
The marriage counselor will not take sides but will recognize the ways in which the couple interacts and will offer better ways to communicate and resolve issues, so in the future they can work through issues together.
Counseling services include learning how to resolve conflicts using de-escalation techniques, active listening skills, and self-regulation techniques.
The counselor will work as an unbiased mediator, can help guide the couple through a conflictual discussion, and will provide insight and feedback to each person. This observation and interaction should also serve as an educational guide when working through tough situations that arise in relationships.
