Relationship Counselling is when you and your partner approach a certified counselor or psychologist or psychotherapist to deal with your issues that are creating conflicts in your marital life. There is no hard-and-fast rule that every couple going through a rough patch must approach a counselor but sharing your marital issues with someone qualified and trustworthy keeps the issues under control and helps you get a realistic understanding of where you or your partner is lacking to make your marriage work.
Marriage works only when both partners are willing to make it successful. Even if one partner only loves and cares for the other partner’s happiness and the other partner has the habit to take it for granted, the relationship suffers from an imbalance that leads to emotional issues between both the partners and it can also have an impact on the physical intimation and love life.
In a marriage, both the partners should give respect and have an understanding towards each other. Say, for example, if a partner wants to study further for creating a good job prospect, then the other partner should be willing to help and support in whichever way possible rather than stopping the growth of their partner citing old customary traditions or family issues as a reason.
Relationship counseling can be done by the partners themselves if they decide to set aside their egos and dominance over each other and look at their relationship from a third perspective. A counselor only helps the partners to speak to each other and take the needed actions to understand the likes and dislikes of each other and make informed decisions.
But if the couple decides to counsel themselves and work upon themselves to make the marriage strong, then it is also a good sign of creating a long-lasting bond between the partners. Whichever way, but the couple that works together by staying together or apart to keep the relationship going no matter whatever circumstances only triumphs.
