Scoring

0-7 Your relationship is one where there is a shared sense of commitment and openness. Both spouses are able to openly discuss issues of concern and upset and feel a healthy level of freedom to engage one another and grow together. A tune-up would help smooth some areas that might in the longrun lead to conflict. Arrange a one-session tune-up by calling our office today.

8-20 Your relationship shows signs of sabotage and disengagement that hurts the ability to openly share and grow. Signs of beginning to withdraw are apparent. You are moving towards conflict. It would be helpful to seek counselling. Why not call our office today to arrange an appointment?

21-30 Your relationship is in great danger of disharmony and possible dissolution. Although it may feel hopeless, many of your feelings have been built on both spouse’s inability to connect and resolve issues. Lack of mutual respect is further sabotaging your marriage and feelings of hopelessness are causing the marriage to become a war zone of conflict and withdrawal. It is important to seek counselling now to help you discover ways to re-ignite your marriage and feel glad about being married.

Change is possible… We know how

Note: Sometimes one spouse is unwilling to attend counseling, leaving the other spouse feeling like, “What’s the use?” Research shows that even when only one spouse attends counselling, significant improvement can be enjoyed in the marriage..
