WORKSHOP: Heart-to-Heart: Intimacy in Marriage

Loading Events

API Care and Counselling is happy to organise this workshop to help participants learn good communication skills to increase marital satisfaction

Good communication increases marital satisfaction and helps to build deep bonds in a marriage. Compared to other relationships, good communication in marriages not only increases marital satisfaction but builds deep bonds. It also fosters trust, understanding, and emotional intimacy on a much deeper level. However, achieving good communication in marriage can be challenging. Couples may face barriers such as differences in communication styles, past unresolved conflicts, and external stressors that can hinder effective communication. It requires effort, patience, and a willingness to actively listen and understand each other’s perspectives


This workshop aims to help married couples maintain a strong and happy marriage through:

  • Understanding the cost and benefits of communication and intimacy in marriage
  • Enhancing communication skills to meet each other’s needs and navigate conflicts
  • Cultivating various aspects of intimacy in marriage

Who Should Attend

  • Married couples who wish to strengthen their relationship, improve communication, and deepen their emotional connection
  • Newlyweds who want to establish healthy foundation for their marriage
  • Couples experiencing communication difficulties, conflicts, or challenges in their marriage and seek guidance on how to overcome them
  • Premarital couples who want to learn effective communication skills to navigate potential conflicts
  • Individuals who are interested in improving their communication skills and understanding of intimacy with their partners
