At The Relationship Room, the cost of marriage counselling in Singapore can vary depending on factors such as the experience and qualifications of the selected counsellor or therapist and time (non-peak vs peak hours). On average, you can expect to pay between $190 and $330 per session (75 minutes) for marriage counselling (marriage therapy) for couples. For individual relationship, the fee would range between $150 and $250 per session (60 minutes).
At The Relationship Room, we use Emotionally Focused (Couple) Therapy (EFT), an evidenced-based approach that is proven to yield high success rate. Studies have shown that when couples consistently attend marriage counselling sessions, it can be effective in resolving relationship issues in more than 70% of cases. However, success rates may vary depending on the specific circumstances and the level of commitment from both partners.
EFT is a short-term approach that may take between eight to 20 sessions. The actual length of the therapy also depends on the complexity of the issue and commitment level of the couples.
If you are experiencing relationship challenges, considering marriage counselling can be a beneficial step towards resolving conflicts, improving communication, and rebuilding a strong foundation. Ms Theresa Pong, the counselling director at The Relationship Room (TRR), has extensive experience in relationship counselling, particularly marriage counselling, couples therapy and infidelity counselling, and can guide you through the process.
Couples therapy and marriage counselling share similar principles and goals, which involve addressing and resolving relationship issues. The two terms are often used interchangeably, and the distinction between them can vary depending on the therapist's approach and specialization. In general, couples therapy may refer to working with couples in different relationship stages, while marriage counselling focuses specifically on married couples and their unique challenges.
As a young adult, Theresa experienced numerous rejections and disappointments in all manners of relationships, causing her self-esteem to plummet, and for her to develop a negative outlook on life. This downward trajectory continued until she experienced the healing power of counseling firsthand. Shortly after, Theresa made a leap of faith to pursue the field of counselling and therapy full-time. It was a decision she has never regretted.
A registered counsellor and clinical supervisor with the Singapore Association for Counselling, Theresa is also registered as a social worker with the Singapore Association of Social Workers (SASW). Although she deals with a broad spectrum of concerns, such as depression and conflict management, her main area of expertise lies in aiding couples recover from affairs and infidelity.

Seo Lay completed her postgraduate diploma in counselling psychology with the College of the Allied Educators. A psychology major from NUS, she went on to explore other interests after graduation.
After over 20 years of professional work spanning the sectors of academia, private and public (where she held research and policy portfolios), Seo Lay found herself revisiting her first passion. Her decision to retrain as a counsellor was in part influenced by friends and ex-colleagues, who would often confide in her as they found her easy to talk to.
Besides counselling, Seo Lay also completed the Professional Coaching Development Programme with the Collective Change Institute in 2019. Now, she hopes to help those who are struggling overcome their mental health issues, and find many reasons to smile in life.
