Marriage is a union between two separate individuals, who have demonstrated willingness and commitment to journey together throughout the rest of their lives as one. Marriage, however, is also a process. While it can be an enriching and fulfilling experience, providing couples with a sense of belonging, security, and love, it can also be unpredictable and fraught with conflicts and arguments.

Strained couple relations may be attributed to various marital issues such as:

  • Competing values, morals, and beliefs due to different cultures and religions; particularly in the presence of a more traditional/conservative society;
  • Misaligned expectations and goals as a couple, separate from what each individual hope to achieve individually;
  • Challenges in communicating and interacting with an individual’s respective extended family members and/or friends;
  • Disagreements regarding parenting practices;
  • Extra-marital affairs;
  • Financial/employment/housing concerns;
  • Intimacy issues;
  • Spousal abuse that may include physical, psychological, emotional, and verbal abuse or neglect.

While this list is not exhaustive, they are some very real difficulties that couples may face in the course of their marriage. At the Lion Mind, we have experienced mental health clinicians who are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to manage these presenting issues.

Our approach to counselling usually involves individual and joint sessions with your partner, using evidence-based approaches such as:

  1. Family Systems Therapy
  2. The Gottman Method
  3.  Narrative Therapy
  4. Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy

If you feel that your marriage is causing more stress than usual, where you are constantly feeling frustrated, angry, or depressed, please do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation on how we can help you to get through these difficult times.

Each session lasts up to 60 minutes. Each session is chargeable at $180/-
