Why Invest in Counselling?

Investing in counselling can create lasting effects in your life and relationships. There is a short-term commitment of your time and money. But, the long-term benefits of improving your relationships, health, career and self-improvement will remain with you. What else will you invest in that will enhance the quality of your life and the relational joy you experience? 

Merkl Marriage Counselling creates a safe counselling space where you can feel relaxed to use the new skills you are discovering. Merkl Marriage Counselling adjusts the treatment plan based on your unique needs as an individual or couple. You decide your success or failure based on your commitment to the process.

 

"I talk about the joy of a relational joy, which is the joy of being connected, being in the flow of relationality whether that's with a partner, with nature, with God, with yourself, with your kids - to be in a state of flow and connection. This is the only joy we humans feel." - Terry Real

Individual Session: 


Both partners attending couples counselling can be beneficial, but individual counselling can make a significant difference in your relationship. It can inspire your partner to continue with couples counselling and give you the insight to heal your relationship or yourself. Remember, you have the power to choose what's best for you in the future, and one person can make a significant difference in their marriage or life. At Merkl Marriage Counselling, we can help you explore the differences between masculine and feminine and how they affect the dynamics of your relationship. We'll work with you to develop strategies that can bring the natural balance and polarity back to your relationship or yourself. With our support and guidance, you can take the necessary steps to strengthen your relationship and find greater happiness and fulfillment in your life.

At Merkl Marriage Counselling, we specialize in Relational Life, Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused and Developmental Model Therapies to help you develop shared goals and values by working together.

By accessing your deeper emotions and needs, you can become more vulnerable with your partner, accept influence, and develop new ways of communicating. This can ultimately lead to stronger, more resilient relationships that can withstand the challenges of life. With our guidance and support, you and your partner can build a more fulfilling and long-lasting relationship.
