Saving Your Marriage On Your Own
If you are desperate to save your marriage but your spouse doesn’t want to attend counselling, you can do relationship counselling on your own. You have 100% control over your half of the relationship. By doing something different and probably more effective, you force a change in their reaction because you are behaving differently. This is often more effective than trying to force someone to attend counselling.
We can also help you understand what your partner is saying to you even if they don’t attend. Don’t make relationship counselling another power struggle between you and your spouse in which you try and force someone to come when they don’t want to. If you really want to make your relationship better, don’t wait for your spouse to come around – our professionals in Singapore can help you.

Pre-marital counselling services are for couples planning to get married, newlyweds or honeymoon couples looking to develop relationship skills that will nurture a successful marriage. A strong marriage requires a good relationship and strong communication skills, as well as a smooth and painless means of conflict resolution – we can help grow these.
When unmarried couples are in love, it is very easy to overlook nascent issues that show signs of being problematic. While planning to get married no one wants to think about future problems in communication, sexual intimacy or conflict. However, a mature approach to marriage is to realize that love can only sustain a relationship so far and that the ability to have a successful marriage is dependent on a couple’s ability to manage their differences successfully. Pre-marriage couples need effective communication skills to ensure a happy marriage, a good marriage counsellor can ensure these.
Research shows that the global divorce rate by the seventh year of a relationship is 50% and for second marriages the divorce rate is 70%. Clearly, couples can benefit from learning more effective relationship skills for a happy, long and successfully marriage. Don’t become a statistic, work with our marriage counsellor in Singapore to develop the skills for a successful marriage.
