When “I Do” turns to “Do I?” peer counseling can help

People talk about marriage as an everlasting commitment to live happily ever after. But for most couples, beyond the perceived fairytale bliss often lies the reality of conflict. That’s totally normal in any intimate relationship. When minor disagreements escalate to outright rage or ongoing animosity that affects your marriage, we can support you in resolving those anger issues.

Matrimony and anger management

Anger often stems from an emotional disconnect. While there are lots of factors involved, a lack of connection is fertile grounds for miscommunication. Excessive anger can stem from selfishness, anxiety, sadness and depression (but it can also exacerbate these emotions). A first step toward healing is to start at the source and invest in rebuilding your connection.

Peer counseling supports anger management

Think of it as an alternative to traditional therapy, holistically rooted in human connection and - in your case - reconnection. At Peer Collective, we believe in radical candor. The peer counsellors in our community are active listeners and honest witnesses. They offer a healthy forum to help identify your relationship’s anger trigger “blind spots”.

3 ways peer counseling can help in healing a marriage:

  1. Peer counseling offers you a safe place to express emotion: Real, raw conversations help initiate a gentle acknowledgment of core issues. There’s no right or wrong way to do it.

  2. It doesn’t rely on who wears the pants or who’s holding the purse strings: Money’s often an exacerbating factor or a pressure point in relationships. Peer counseling is affordable and scalable.

  3. Peer counselors are round-the-clock ready: Anger issues in a marriage should to be deal with as soon as possible before they intensify. Browse our peer counselors’ profiles, choose a counselor that resonates with both of you. Then you can book. It’s that easy.

Is peer counseling just the honeymoon phase of therapy?

If “holy matrimony” starts to feel like “holy shit, this is hard”, don’t worry. You’re not alone. In fact, you’re on the right track already. The Peer Collective community would be honored to walk you down the aisle of healing any anger issues in your marriage.
