Marteleze van Graan Provides Professional Marriage Counselling in Pretoria

If you reside in Pretoria, you might be wondering which therapist is not only close enough to make an appointment with, but also which one will be able to help you deal with issues within your marriage appropriately. Finding someone who will act as a mediator, yet make you feel comfortable enough to share your deepest intimacies is of the utmost importance, which is why Marteleze van Graan has dedicated her career to helping those in the midst of challenging uphill battles.

Who is Marteleze van Graan?

After attaining numerous professional qualifications at the University of Pretoria, Marteleze van Graan registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) as a practising psychotherapist. Offering a wide selection of services, including marriage counselling, Marteleze takes particular interest in helping individuals and couples who struggle within their relationships.

What is Marriage Counselling?

Phrases such as “irreconcilable differences” or “the irretrievable breakdown of marriage” are two terms that have long been known as grounds for divorce. Long before couples get to this point, however, there is a period in which these differences can be dealt with and worked through, and this is where marriage counselling is useful as a tool. Professional marriage counsellors act as a resource that couples can tap into when they deplete their own reserves – which is sometimes precisely what a marriage requires when it needs rescuing.

When Marriage Counselling Might Be Necessary

Despite popular belief, marriage counselling isn’t just for marriages on the rocks. Any marriage can benefit from the advantages that therapeutic methods offer such as improved communication and reconnection. Below are some of the instances where therapy can enhance the quality of a marital relationship:

  • When miscommunication occurs and both parties “live” past each other.
  • When one party feels that they have fallen out of love.
  • In the instance of extra-marital relationships and affairs.
  • While having difficulties with sexual intimacy.
  • When one or both partners is keeping damaging secrets.
  • When financial management becomes a source of conflict.
  • When partners experience problems while raising children.
  • In the event of trauma and loss.
  • When mood and personality disorders are present in one or both parties.
  • If one or both partners experience a negative outlook on the future.
