Discernment Counselors in New Hampshire

Is Your Marriage On the Brink of Divorce?
Discernment Counseling May Be the Next Step

New Hampshire Discernment Counselors

About 6,340 married couples* in New Hampshire are contemplating divorce this year.

Most don’t want to divorce, but it’s on their minds.

Discernment Counseling is a research-based approach for couples where:

  • One (or both) of you are questioning the commitment to stay married and
  • One (or both) of you aren’t sure you have the motivation to work hard in marriage counseling to fix your problems.

Discernment Counseling is unlike Marriage Counseling in these ways:

  • It’s brief: from one to five sessions maximum
  • It’s goal is to increase clarity and confidence on a direction for your marriage, not to fix your problems
  • It doesn’t ask you to change right now, but instead to better understand what’s happened to the marriage and each person’s contributions to the problems
