Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

We applied for a divorce, and we are going to a psychiatrist for counseling as advised. The reason for divorce is that my wife is not willing to have sex, but complaining that I have some problem. I hope she loves someone and still having contact with him. My friend informed that during counseling they will apply a lotion on the forehead and will give a tablet before counseling. May I know the use of tablet and lotion. Is it possible to get the real fact in her mind? Please advise.


Welcome to icliniq.com. I guess you know and understand thoroughly what exactlydivorce counseling means. By this, the couples will figure out why their relationship did not work and have the insight of unhappiness left by the couples. The medication varies accordingly. They may be for anxiety, depression, delusions, etc., and is based on the thought process of the partner. Thus, counseling is offered mainly aiming to cope with the change and progress minimizing the ill effects on the partners in multiple counseling sessions singly or together. By proper counseling and understanding, it is possible to know what is there in her mind, though. Divorce counseling is like separation counseling, unlike couple counseling that is like a guidance to a marriage.
