Getting married is one of the biggest steps you will take in life.
Pre-Marriage Counselling can help you…
Assess your strengths and ‘growing edges’ as a couple
Build a strong foundation of intimacy and trust – and know how to reinforce and strengthen this foundation throughout your marriage
Learn tools for Communication and Conflict Resolution that will last a lifetime
Understand your personality similarities and differences – become aware of challenges they may bring, but also the ways you complement one another
Explore your experiences of marriage and family in your childhood and how they shape your expectations
Initiate conversation about many areas of your life together, such as:
relationships with family and friends
partner style & habits
Every couple is unique. Pre-marriage counselling will focus on the areas you most need to discuss prior to your wedding. The process and number of sessions varies between couples and therapists who offer the service. Pease call for more information.
Rivers Edge Counselling Centre also offers group pre-marriage courses for 4-5 couples at once. The course includes an individual session, followed by 4 - 3hr. group sessions, and a follow-up individual session. Call for more information and future dates.
