Our expert says:
I'm not sure what your counsellor's way of thinking was, but if a main issue was the stresses of work, home, and infant care, and of losing touch with each other, I find it hard to see what could be gained by living apart for a time ( apart from increasing the cost of living, and decreasing your opportunities for working together to find solutions ). It just does not sound a helpful suggestion at all.
I wonder, too, whether your husband may be becoming depressed, too, from your description. This can be helped by medication from your GP, as well as by proper counselling of the CBT form. And a similarly sensible counsellor could help you both find better ways of avoiding such stress as is avoidable, and handling whatever stress can't be avoided
