Everyone knows that having good communication is vital to your relationship. Since statistics show that over 60 percent of marriages end in divorce, one reason may be that many couples don’t seek relationship counseling until it’s too late. Most of us realize that getting rid of your partner does not get rid of the problems because half of the problem is yours. You can walk out of your marriage, but you can’t run away from yourself — no matter how hard you try. One of the biggest challenges for most couples is learning how to stop blaming each other so they can work through the troubled times without the power struggles. Relationship counseling offers a safe haven for couples to express their needs and fears and effectively resolve anger and conflict.
