This is the time, when the need for relationship counsellors and marriage counsellors is growing more than ever. A marriage counsellor can help you see your marriage from a different perspective and recreate the relationship in a totally different light. CM Counselling Services of Edmonton Alberta helps couples repair damaged relationships and reclaim the love they have lost over the years. Not only is marriage one of the most significant relationship for many people some would consider it one of the foundational institutions in society. Marriage is a place where people can experience true acceptance, peace and joy it is also a place where we instill our values into the next generation. Marriage and the family that often comes with it have a profound effect on our society. Unfortunately in modern times marriage has become more well known for its conflicts, its betrayals and its sense of confinement. If you have a desire to keep your marriage but find yourself in irresolvable conflict, emotional, physical or sexual abuse or you come to the realisation that your life partner seems more like your mortal enemy then it is time to seek the help of a professional marriage counsellor.
Marital conflict discord and unhappiness can result from a number of factors. These include abuse (of any kind), infidelity, money, incompatible life direction, poor communication and relationship skills, sexual difficulties, disagreements on parenting, disagreements on world view and religious practice, and mental illness in one or both parties. One of the challenging realities that each married individual encounters is that their spouse is a very imperfect human being. The second often less realised challenge is that they themselves are also very imperfect. One of the key issues is saving a distressed marriage is accepting the reality that people are imperfect (and they often change very slowly). An effective marriage counsellor helps couple sort through the changes and disappointment. In abuse situations the counsellor helps each individual and the couple decide how much is too much and what steps need to be taken to ensure the emotional and physical safety of all parties involved. Marriage counsellors help develop communication skills and healthy relationship practices. The counsellor will also recognise deeper personal issues that are straining the marriage and recommend personal counselling to help resolve issues of fear, control, and anger. In order to resolve problems, counsellors need an empathetic non judgmental approach towards the relationship crises. CM counselling services recognizes that marriage is challenging and marital repair is downright difficult. With this in mind counsellors approach each couple gently. As Christians they use prayer to heal wounds, assist in forgiveness and empower difficult change. One of the goals of counselling is to have each client interact freely and easily with the power and love of God. As each client experiences this they can in turn give this gentle love and acceptance to their spouses. It is this acceptance of self and acceptance of others that powerfully heals relationships.
