Pre-Marriage Counselling

Live Happy Ever After

What is Premarital Counselling?

Premarital counselling is taking the time to know each other deeply and explore how your marriage is going to work. Knowing your partner intimately and understanding how to craft a happy, loving marriage will serve you well for years to come.

We all start off in a happy relationship with the best intentions for each other, but then life happens! It’s how you deal with these difficult moments in life that ultimately shape the kind of marriage you have.

The choices you make can bring you closer together, or drive you apart. Premarital counselling gives you the blueprint to craft your own unique happy and fulfilling marriage. It’s about turning toward your partner, supporting each other and reducing suffering during difficult times.

The Best Start to Married Life

Modern Marriage Pressure

Your marriage is unique to you and your partner. What worked well for your parents may not necessarily work well for you. Relationships evolve, as does time and culture. Modern pressures of work, social life, technology and family can have a dramatic impact on your marriage and family life.

Premarital counselling is personalised to your unique relationship needs and pressures. Strengthen love and resilience by sharing values, goals and a vision for your future. Identify your boundaries and tender areas you need care and support for.

Share your story in a safe and therapeutic environment. Work through issues and areas of difference with a trained caring professional.

Enjoy Your Big Day & Create Lasting Memories

Nurturing Relationships

Having the skills and know-how to reach a compromise is essential for your relationship to grow and blossom. The alternative is feeling betrayed, used, invisible, un-cared for and not understood. This can be a slippery slope to feeling contempt, resentment, anger, frustration and ultimately end in divorce as a wedge is driven between you.

Being prepared before you tie the knot makes sense. Even if you have a wonderful relationship right now, you simply don’t know what you don’t know.

Mindfulness & Self-Awareness for Lasting Memories

You’ve dreamed of this special wedding day for years. Ease nervousness and feelings of anxiety on your special day and create lasting memories by being fully present as you walk down the isle.

Using simple self-awareness techniques, calm your nerves and be engaged in the present moment.

Lowering stress helps you naturally feel at ease, letting you soak in all the sensations around you. Remember faces and connect with family authentically. Enjoy the ambience and experience the day in ‘high definition’ for years to come.
