What questions do marriage Counsellors ask?

Marriage counselors may ask a variety of questions in order to gain a deeper understanding of the issues in a couple’s relationship and to help them work towards resolving those issues. Some common questions that a counselor may ask include:

  • Can you tell me about your relationship history? How did you meet? How long have you been together?
  • What are the main issues that you are currently facing in your relationship?
  • Can you describe a specific incident or situation that was particularly difficult for you in your relationship?
  • How do you and your partner typically communicate and handle conflicts?
  • What are your goals for counseling? What do you hope to achieve?
  • How do you feel when you’re with your partner? How do you feel when you’re not with them?
  • What are the things that you appreciate about your partner and your relationship? What are the things that you don’t appreciate?
  • How do you envision your future together?
  • What is the support system you have outside of your relationship?

Counselors may also ask about specific topics such as intimacy, trust, and financial issues. The questions will be tailored to the specific issues that the couple is facing and the counselor’s approach and style.

It’s important to note that the counselor’s role is to guide the conversation and ask questions that will lead to a better understanding and progress in the relationship, but ultimately the couple should lead the conversation and it’s important that both partners feel comfortable and safe while discussing the issues.
