In my practice, I come across numerous couples who have taken what is according to them a desperate measure to come for counselling when their marriage is on the verge of falling apart. There is such little awareness about the benefits of simple discussions with an objective and experienced person to address deadlocks in relationships. Poor communication,  a lack of commitment between two people or on many occasions a lack of effort in understanding your spouse means many discussions end with a shouting match. The complacency that sets in between two people is the most dangerous aspect of a  marriage.If you can’t get the message across, cannot convey the depth of your worries,anxieties or troubles, why not ask someone else for suggestions on how to do the same effectively? Simple steps taken in time can save people so much trouble. How much of our lives are wasted unnecessarily.
