There are times when traditional counseling is necessary. However, many couples that seek traditional counseling don’t really need traditional counseling, because their issue is not one of a pathological type. In other words, there are no abuse or addictive behaviors. They are two people who are “healthy” but understand the need and have the desire to be shown the way to a happy marriage. Some additional things to consider when discerning where to turn for help are cost, length of the process and rate of success.
On average, most therapists charge anywhere from $45 to $200 for a 50-minute session. The average couple stays in marriage counseling for 6, 9, 12 months or longer, with no guarantee of results. Sadly, most couples who go through traditional marriage counseling end up divorced. In fact, many couples come to us after having been to a counselor with unsatisfactory results.
