Duties and Responsibilities Of A Marriage Counselor In Nigeria

As Couples there is so much to learn quickly before, during, and after the wedding ceremony that marriage isn’t as easy as you expected it to be. Having a successful marriage requires hard work and dedication to see that your marriage works. There are lots of realities that set in between spouses for instance they realize that they are not as compatible as they previously thought, or they begin to have conflicts on trivial issues that they never thought would be an issue. These challenges and difficulties are certainly not unusual and seeking the advice of a marriage counselor may have a considerable effect on reinforcing and even salvaging the marriage.

Why is it Important to Seek a Marriage Counselor

  1. Seeking to speak to a marriage counselor makes it easy for couples to settle their misunderstandings and avoid miscommunications as miscommunication plays a strong role in creating marital crisis.
  2. Marriage counseling introduces the couples to learning new tools which if they are put into real practice will play a crucial role in making the couples replace unhealthy habits to better ones and will also make the couple accountable to each other
  3. It also plays the part of helping couples take actual time out of their busy lives and come together to really focus on themselves.

Key Duties and Roles of Marriage Counselor

Contrast Patterns

A counselor helps to detect behavioral patterns and through this identifies triggers that lead to crisis between a couple. Been able to address these patterns will be addressed by the Counselor who finds a way to solve the problem


A counselor acts as a mediator or a coach between conflicting spouses and finds a way to encourage and expedite great communication between the couple.

Means to Improve Communication

Having found a way to get the couple to communicate in the best way possible, a counselor through other means or tools helps the couple to improve in connection and problem-solving


In order to analyze if couples can stand the test of time, it is the duty of the counselor to assign tasks, assignments, and role model techniques. Most times, couples are told to carry out the task together to create more bonding

Practical Expectations

Couples sometimes tend to have unimaginable expectations about each other, therefore it is the responsibility of a counselor to help them build a much more realistic picture of who their partners are rather than who they want him or her to be. In doing this, the counselor nurtures them to see their partners for who they truly are and accept them with a more rational expectation from them.


To have successful marriage counseling, both parties must be more than prepared and inclined towards having a triumphant session. Rather than give up on the marriage, they must agree and decide amongst themselves to work and see that they survive the turbulent times. You should also note that, if you have made up your mind to go for marriage counseling, it won’t be a work in the park as it requires time and commitment to achieve the most desired result of saving the marriage.
