Marriage counseling can be done effectively if the therapists sets boundaries and expectations from the beginning, and each of the partners decides to follow those guidelines.

Marriage counselling can be done efficiently if the marriage counselor is proper educated for the job. The counselor should hold an educational certificate to be a counselor and this will prove him to be effective.

Marriage counselling can be done properly if the counselor can take the time to understand the couple and not take sides at any point. An unbiased view of the problem really helps in fixing the issue and also make the couple understand who is wrong.

Counseling will become effective if the counselor can listen to both ends and understand it. Psychology helps here in understanding who is wrong and who is right to give proper counseling.

The couple should also be cooperative for the counseling to be effective. If the couple are ignorant over the suggestions give, there is no point in giving counseling in the first place. Respecting the counselor and having an honest attitude to fix problems is important.

For the most effective marriage counseling, both the people should be present in each sesson and willing to work out their issues. Both people must be honest about their feelings, fears, and wishes.

An experienced counselor will help couples be introspective and teach them skills to work through their issues independently outside of counseling.

Marital therapists have undergone special training that allows them to work under licensure in agencies or facilities. Their training may vary, but most have taken child development, counseling psychology, social systems, social research, gender studies, and global or cultural studies.  They understand the common patterns people exhibit, and they can interpret patterns of behavior. They also know how to identify abusive behavior.  A good marriage counselor is one with plenty of experience, one that is respectful and makes you feel heard, and one who, does not simply help you identify issues but introduces solid strategies to help you achieve desired results.  Marital therapists should assist the couple with identifying clear goals for their treatment.  Once those goals
are established, the counselor should be checking in regularly to address
milestones of success.  If this is not
happening, or the counselor does not change up strategies that don't work; you
may want to try someone new.  Do not give
up until things start to improve.

If you are able to view a problem objectively without taking sides due to gender bias or any other bias, you should be good. With this a good education on the same and some prior experience with a master counselor will greatly help.
