Before I was married I thought that couples counselling was for marriages on the brink of divorce. In television and movies, counselling is for couples who have experienced infidelity or marital dysfunction. It’s a final effort to keep a marriage from unravelling, and one that usually doesn’t work.
A few years ago a movie called Hope Springs was released, with funny-man Steve Carrell playing the marriage counsellor to Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones. I really wanted to love the movie, but I found myself feeling depressed for this couple who had lost out on years of joy because of stubborn hearts and a refusal to seek help. It was painful to watch Arnold (Jones), stone-faced and resilient to therapy for much of the film, while Kay (Streep) tried desperately to get through.
This film perpetuated these common misconceptions about marriage and counselling. I believed the misconceptions until I had my own marriage to care for. A few years in, and my husband and I were in counselling together, despite the fact that we were strong communicators with a mostly happy and healthy marriage.
Why were we there then? Well, it’s not really any of your business! But, we needed help to sort out ourselves, our hearts, and find a way to be unified in our struggles.
It wasn’t until I sat in our counsellor’s office, holding the hand of my husband who was faithful and kind to me, that I knew how truly wonderful our marriage was. It wasn’t a strained conversation with our counsellor, but one that was free-flowing. We were vulnerable and honest, and our therapist helped us to navigate questions and explore avenues we would never have thought of exploring on our own.
It’s my belief that many strong marriages are made stronger in therapy. If only we went for couples counselling before the troubles began, we’d have a lot healthier marriages and a lot happier spouses.
It was in couples counselling that I truly saw my husband. It’s where I got to know the little boy inside the great man I knew. It’s where I learned about his hurts and wounds, and his passion and desire. It’s where I saw his kindness and softness, but also his strength and stamina. In couples counselling I grew closer to a man I already admired and loved deeply.
As the layers of our lives were peeled back, I grew to love the soft and tender people we were underneath. We had built protective layers around ourselves, to keep the cold harsh world from harming us. But in the process, it also prevented the people we loved to see our true selves. As we chipped away at the hard exterior with our words and raw emotions, we exposed the beauty we had been hiding all along.
I love going to therapy with my husband, and I truly believe we saved our marriage before it ever really needed any saving. We’ll continue to go, because we want to continue strengthening our marriage and finding our own inner strength along the way.

I was a subject of a cryptocurrency heist. Some amount of bitcoin was stolen from my wallet and diverted to an unpermitted account. My wallet management was informed, however, they had me wait a week before responding through email. They didn’t offer any assistance; alternatively, they mentioned that my phone might have been compromised and told me to get in touch with the authorities who couldn’t provide any solution to recover my bitcoin. When I was browsing through the internet trying to find a solution to get my stolen bitcoin back, I discovered a team of bitcoin recovery experts called GHOST CHAMPION. I then decided to contact them for assistance in getting my stolen money back. I have nothing but praise for GHOST CHAMPION because they were able to assist me in recovering the money that had been stolen. With the use of their sophisticated tools, GHOST CHAMPION was able to determine how the transaction was carried out. I have my money back and I am very thankful to GHOST CHAMPION for their amazing service. If you have any issues related to mine. Kindly contact them via email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, please be wise. Don’t make the same mistake I made a while ago where I was a victim of bitcoin scam. I saw a glamorous review showering praises and marketing an investment firm. I reached out to them, invested $85,000, and was promised to earn my first 15% profit in weeks. However, I never received a dollar when the time came. I got to know the company was bogus as they kept asking me to invest more. Eventually, and I ran out of patience and requested to have my money back. Unfortunately, they refused to answer or refund my funds. My friend introduced me to this recovery expert and I couldn’t contain the joy in me when they helped me recover my money. I urge you guys to reach out email@example.com

For the past a decade, I’ve always played lottery games with the hope that someday I will win the lottery jackpot but that never happened. I did some research on the internet and I came across an advert about Dr Amber that prepares lottery spells for people that believe in his works. I explained my situation to Dr Amber and he prepared a lottery spell for me and gave me some numbers to play the lottery and I did as he said without any skepticism. Could you believe that for the very first time in my life, I won the sum of £30,820,000 MILLION POUNDS. I thought I was dreaming until I was called by the lottery agent to come over to the office to make arrangements of how I will claim the money. Now my life has changed for good and I am a boss of my own and you can be a boss of your own too by getting in touch with Dr Amber for a lottery spell.

Hi guys, I don’t have much to say right now rather than to say thank you to Dr Amber for rescuing me and my family from poverty. I love playing the lottery but winning big is always the issue for me. I will never forget the day I came in contact with Dr Amber whose lottery spell made me a winner of $360,000,000 million dollars cash prize on the jackpot lottery game I played just by giving me sure winning numbers within 3 days to play the lottery game after he prepared the lottery spell for me. My financial status has changed for good and I’ve started to live my dream life after 14 years of playing the lottery. Thank you Dr Amber for I’m very grateful for all you’ve done for me and my family.

Hello everyone, I am Mia. from Oklahoma USA, I want to use this medium to appreciate Dr Ogedegbe the great black magic spell caster for the successful death spells he cast on someone for me. I contacted him when my husband left me for another woman who uses witchcraft power to take my husband. I was desperately in need of help when I found his contacts online about his genuine powers. I told him my situation and how I wanted the bitch who took my husband gone. He told me not to worry. He cast the death spells ritual on her and the bitch died in her sleep within 24hours. Now my husband is back home and we are living happily. Thank you so much Dr Ogedegbe, You are so real and true. Below are his contacts in case you want to contact him via email email@example.com or Call/WhatsApp: +2348109374702………
