Couples counselling may benefit couples who find themselves engaged in frequent conflict, experiencing unsatisfying communication patterns, having power struggles, having sexual difficulties, experiencing betrayal or any other threat to their relationship. In counselling, the couple becomes the client (the focus of attention) and the counsellor is an advocate for improving the dynamics in the relationship. Counselling is based on the couple meeting the counsellor together to focus on the process of healing by identifying the issues, rebuilding communication, and putting in place a practical plan to cultivate a healthy and rewarding relationship.
