Don’t suffer in silence: seek counselling for your marriage problems 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 marriage counselling professionals in Singapore can help you.

Some of the most common reasons for couple counselling services in Singapore include:

Marital Counselling Services for Sex and Intimacy Problems

One of the reasons couples seek counselling for marriage problems in Singapore is due to issues pertaining to sex and intimacy. These two terms are not the same but can be understood differently between partners, which thus may lead to different expectations of sex and intimacy in marriages. There are also other factors that may lead to sex and intimacy issues, such as childbearing, work stress and even religious beliefs. We provide a comprehensive explanation on these issues and find solutions through our couple therapy services in Singapore .

Couple Therapy Pre and Post Marriage

In Singapore, our marriage counselling services not only extend to couples already married for a period of time but also those who are about to tie the knot or had recently done so. These sessions are useful for soon-to-be wedded couples and newlyweds 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 with our pre-marriage and post-marriage counselling services.

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 realise that love can only sustain a relationship so far and that a successful marriage is dependent on a couple’s ability to manage their differences successfully. Couples who have yet to marry need effective communication skills to ensure a happy marriage, a good marriage counsellor can ensure these.

The global rate of divorce by the seventh year of a relationship is 50%; for second marriages, the divorce rate is 70%. Clearly, couples can benefit from learning more effective relationship skills for a happy, long and successful marriage through counselling. Don’t become a statistic, work with our team in Singapore to develop the skills for a successful marriage with our counselling therapists.

Our marriage counsellor will teach you how to satisfy the needs of each person in a relationship. Unlike most classes that just show you incompatibility, these couple counselling services we provide in Singapore (which you can also engage with us from anywhere in the world via online platforms) teach you effective skills to manage expectations, conflict and communication.
