You will come in as a couple, but the most important work occurs in the one-to-one conversations you have with me as your counsellor. Why? Because you and your spouse are starting out in different places.
I will respect your reasons for divorce, while trying to open up the possibility of restoring the marriage to health.
One of the outcomes of these sessions is that each of you understand your own contributions to the problems, and the possible solutions. This will be useful in future relationships, even if this one ends.
Number of sessions: A maximum of five sessions. The first session is up to 120 minutes and the subsequent sessions are 80 minutes.
Cost: The first session is 1500 AED and the subsequent sessions cost 1025 AED.
Discernment Counseling is not suited for these situations:
- When one spouse has already made a final decision to divorce
- When one spouse is coercing the other to participate
- When there is danger of domestic violence
