Marriage counselling can prove to be extremely beneficial to a relationship. With the help of a qualified, experienced marriage counsellor, both newlyweds and long-term partners can achieve the peace and happiness they deserve through compromise and communication.
We understand that seeking out a marriage counsellor can be daunting, especially if you are grappling with raw emotions and marriage troubles. That’s why we’ve conducted a little local research and put together this list of the top three marriage counsellors in the Canberra region.
Let’s get started right away.
What makes an excellent marriage counsellor?
Your relationship is important. You want to give your marriage the best chance to succeed, and that’s why it’s essential to decide on the right marriage counsellor. Here are a few traits we suggest keeping an eye out for:
- Experience. Many marriages fracture under the weight of the same pain-points, whether that be related to finances, infidelity, or family issues. Experienced marriage counsellors have seen it all, and can equip you and your spouse with effective, actionable ways to get back on track.
- Specialist knowledge. Look for a counsellor that specialises in marriage issues and relationships.
- Compassion and understanding. The best marriage counsellors have a way of understanding both sides of the story. They communicate with compassion and never judge.
