Pre Marital Counselling​

Isn’t it ironic that we learn and endeavour to specialize in our chosen fields before we commit to practice but when it comes to Marriage we enter the realm of the unknown quite naively thinking that it will be a “happily ever after” story. Having a great relationship is as much "an art" as it is a science. Like any other serious endeavour, one can acquire the understanding and know how to master the art of "being a couple." For a young Muslim Couple it is extremely beneficial to explore the issues whilst keeping in mind the guidance from the Quran and Sunnah. We can help you co-create the relationship of your dreams. Exploring cross cultural differences at this stage will also be very beneficial.



Some of the basic themes for these sessions could be:


• Discuss role expectations. It’s important to talk about the responsibilities of each partner in marriage. Discussing roles early on will clarify expectations for the future.


• Explore your spiritual and religious beliefs. It is extremely important to understand what is important to each partner and discussing these issues ahead of time will help determine your compatibility and help you learn to manage different opinions.


• Cross Cultural issues and different family dynamics. Much of what we learn about relationships comes from our parents and other family members. Identifying our early influences and discussing our learned behaviours will help us understand how this might play out in marriage.


• Effective communication and conflict resolution skills. Couples that communicate effectively can resolve conflicts more effectively. This will allow you to spend less time arguing and more time understanding.


• Develop personal, couple, and family goals. You are committing to share a life with someone. Isn’t it important to discuss what you want your future to look like together?

Our Approach

The whole therapeutic process is based upon the principles of confidentiality. In our confidential sessions, we take the time to listen to you and hear your deepest feelings and concerns. Just having someone who can hear you without any judgments or agenda will give you a feeling of freedom and even relief. But you also want someone who has the experience and background to immediately pinpoint the underlying source of your issue. Our solution-a focused approach gets results right away. We work with the principles of Psychodynamic and Systemic Counselling.

How it Works ​

We will invite you for an initial consultation where couples normally attend first sessions together. We will talk about your concerns and the areas you would like to work on. This will be an opportunity to assess our suitability to work together. This will be an opportunity to explore any issues and set some realistic goals. At the end of the session, we will discuss next steps and how the therapy is to proceed. There are no restrictions on the number of sessions required as it depends on the progress that each individual couples are making.



You can also work with us one-on-one if your partner is uncomfortable with coming to counselling sessions or if you have specific issues that you wish to address alone with the therapist first. Working one-on-one can also be beneficial because when one partner changes, the whole dynamic of the marriage can change too.

If you are single, separating, or divorced, therapy can also help support you through a difficult time.

 

Inter-generational Issues

Do you feel torn between the way your parents want you to relate with your religious and cultural identity? Do you feel torn between your Religious and Cultural identity. Would you like to explore these issues in a secure and non-judgemental environment? I can provide you with an opportunity to address these issues either on your own or with your family. I have an added advantage of being bilingual and I can comfortably speak Asian languages like Urdu and Punjabi. This means that I can facilitate a process of effective communication and mediation between young people and their parents.
