Common Myths and Misconceptions about Couples Counselling:

  1. “Couples counselling is divorce counselling.” Many couples go to counselling for support during difficult times or to improve their communication. Many couples find it helpful to talk through their issues with the help of an unbiased third party. Occasionally, when couples have waited too long to work on their issues or one or both are not willing to reconcile, counselling can be helpful in alleviating some of the discomfort or adversarial nature of separations. With that said, counselling in itself does not cause a couple’s divorce.
  2. “If we are in-love, we shouldn’t need to work on our relationship.” Wrong again. Relationships are work. Successful, long term relationships are a lot of work, but they are worth it. Going to couples counselling can help resolve small issues and challenges before they grow out of proportion.
  3. “Couples counselling is too expensive.” Wrong again. The health and strength of our intimate relationships directly impact our quality of life. For the price of a nice dinner and a bottle of wine in a restaurant, you can learn essential tools to improve your relationship.
