Beyond Marriage Counselling—What You Need to Know
When a couple walks into marriage counselling together; both have usually decided to give their marriage time, attention and money. With this level of commitment along with a professional counsellor in the lead; you would expect establishing matrimonial harmony should be easy.
Unfortunately for many couples, marriage counselling does not end up what they expected.
Rather than bring them closer; each partner generally works to get the counsellor onside. As they square off in opposite corners, the sessions become a battle of ‘two against one’, with the counsellor advocating for divorce or separation.

Emotional Intelligence Training as an Alternative to Marriage Counselling
Scientists—following thousands of test subjects throughout their lives—have discovered three remarkable emotional competencies that are central to an emotionally intelligent view on life. Although rarely discussed beyond the corporate world, these personal skills cause people to do better on every scale of success devised by science.
Emotionally competent people live in better homes, in more peaceful suburbs, make more money, enjoy higher rates of job and marriage satisfaction and experience lower rates of divorce and mental illness in their families. Along with their children they do better at sport, school and work and enjoy better health and social connections (1).”
Emotional Intelligence is not just important in your marriage. It improves the quality of life in just about every way science can measure!
Leading these competencies is Vagal tone (2), which simply means being able to calm down quickly after an upset.
