Counselling Before Marriage - Why Is It Important?

Counselling Before Marriage - Why Is It Important?

We as individuals are unique and blessed with independent thoughts and intellect, which help us in making decisions in life. One of the biggest decisions in life that we have to make is choosing a life partner. We may have to go through several proposals and meet lots of people before we are able to make this crucial choice and select an ideal partner to spend the rest of your life with. Many times, such decisions are made sooner and at sometimes we may have to seek the opinion of our friends, relatives and well-wishers to be able to find the perfect match.

In all cases, what really matters is that the relationship that we have build has to be strong enough to last a lifetime and that if there is any problem between the couple, they should be able to resolve it amicably, with understanding and maturity. In order to forge relationships that can last, the beginning of the association has to be crucial. There are a number of ways in which you can ensure that the beginning is smooth and that the rest of your lives are also spent in happiness.

The importance of counselling
In the modern times, when couples expect a lot more than couples of the olden times, it becomes extremely important to make sure that the couplevisits a marriage counsellor in time and is given an opportunity to get to know each other in a better manner. Here are a few ways in which counselling may be a boon for newly acquainted couples who are to get married.

  1. The counselling may help them realise their similarities and also understand what their strong points as a couple
  2. The session of understanding each other may also aid in knowing what they expect from each other in the long term rather than finding out the difficult way.
  3. It may also help in understanding the importance of amicable family relationships and how close and extended families help in the making of long and strong relationships.
  4. The pre-marriage counselling provided to couples also ensures that they are able to get a healthy and transparent forum to be able to know each other and understand what they can expect from life if they are together.

Getting the right kind of help
Although parents and elders usually advise the couple before they get married, it is important to make sure that formal counselling is also received from an expert in the field of psychology. When you choose to go to a worthy and trusted expert, you are able to ensure that the best methods of opening up to each other are used and that the session remains fruitful for the couple as well as their families in the long term. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

This started in feb 2011 since I was having inferiority complex towards my short hight. Sometimes I felt like socially abused due to this .i developed social anxiety due to this .things related to hight or to improve it keeps running on my mind and I was unable to come out this. Latter I diagnosed as a case of OCD. Finally in july 2011 I admitted to the hospital due to depression and diagnosed as a case of bipolar disorder not of OCD. But those images of short people and thought related to my hight bothered me alot when I told this to doctors they told that it will go away with the time. Latter on situation improved and these thought and images gone away completely. I started living a normal life like others. Now these thoughts and images still comes but after many months and only for a week or two and then goes off automatically. This time after so many months (almost a year) it came back and bothering me lot. Now these image and thoughts keeps running on my mind so frequently that it intrupts daily routine .unable to focus on things like tv and alI. I am having problem with my sleep. It gets interrupted and I feel like frightened, anxious and wake up with little racing heartbeat. Pls help me doctor. How to stop these racing thoughts.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Such relapses and remissions are common in bipolar disorder. It you are on regular mood stabilisers, you will have longer period (more than a year) of normalcy. At present, you seem to be going in for a relapse. Please consult your psychiatrist and start taking other drugs along with mood stabilisers. Even without that, it will go away by itself. But you and your quality of life suffer due to it. So better to go for treatment.

Sir, I do not have concentration. Please suggest me to concentrate. And I have lower iq levels so please suggest me to increase my iq. I have a depressed mode when I hear a disappointing answer. So please suggest me to get rid of that.

Well don't get depressed with this answer because it is really a fact and it will help you. Your IQ will also stand to benefit, if you follow the instructions below meticulously. At your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.

Fear is a natural response to situational threats. If there is frequent response of fear without having any threats, then it is a symptom of mental illness which need to be treated by a Psychiatrist. Psychologist will help you to identify your fear related thoughts and to learn to distort these thoughts and implanting constructive positive thoughts. You will also learn to relax your mind

Actually I am having kind of low self esteem from my childhood since my father always wanted me to study and never take part in any other activity and now also I had bad grades because of his demotivational talks that I can not do anything and he never accepts his mistake and whenever I do something for my enjoyment he just interrupts it. Now am a graduate and because of his controlling nature I am unable to build up my confidence. What should I do?

Dear Habiba, Welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for advise counseling and therapy. Take care.

Many a times for anxiety disorder, you need to take long term medications. So kindly consult your psychiatrist regularly and take them as advised. Newer desvenlafaxine has come, which controls anxiety better then plain venlafaxine. Discuss with your psychiatrist. All the best.

Hi what symptoms you mentioned are all because of depression. It is like using mental filter. In depression we see only the negative around us and about us. We make no efforts to see the positives around us. We even forget our own positive achievements and moments in life. Slowly mind sets into this habitual thinking. But there is a way out. As we go to gym to exercise regularly every day if we want to loose weight same way you need to change your this habitual thinking by conscious efforts every day. Everyday write down the positive happenings in your life even if it means the simplest thing like smelling of beautiful flower fragrance that put smile on your face, someone praised you. This will start your brain rewiring what we call as neuroplasticity towards positive change. Also write your achievements till now. Everyday. Even if you have to write same thing again. Continue this for at least 8 weeks. Learn some relaxation exercise, listening to music. Avoid watching emotional serials or movies. Watch and read comedy. Please do continue on medicines as suggested by your psychiatrist and regularly visit to modify the dose if needed. This is equally important as these exercises. Wishing you a good health! warm regards.
