Just as you take your car in for a yearly MOT and service, have regular vet visits for your pet, or for yourself at the doctor, why not apply the same 'check-up' mentality to the health of your relationship?
As human beings, we often leave addressing problems until they have become so big that they are unbearable, or causing real difficulty in our day to day existence. In a relationship context this can lead to a 'make or break situation'. For that reason, I feel that preventative action is a much easier process for couples to undergo than trying to cure something that has already gone very wrong.
The relationship check-up is designed for exactly that purpose. Every relationship has its ups and downs, and if you find yourselves arguing a bit more than normal, or dealing with external pressures on your relationship, it can be useful to air concerns in a safe and non-judgemental environment before they escalate into a major falling-out.
Ongoing counselling to deal with a major problem usually requires a number of sessions over the medium to long term. In contrast, the 'check-up' process aims to be a short, focused piece of work ranging from a one off session, to a package of 3 sessions. Of course if there is a wish or need to extend our time together, then that is absolutely fine and we can discuss a way forward which meets both of your needs.
