Pre-marital counseling is a benefit to all couples who are considering a long-term commitment such as marriage. Typically, the goal of pre-marital counseling is focused on identifying and addressing any potential areas of conflict in a relationship early on, before those issues become serious concerns.
It will teach you and your fiancé effective strategies for discussing and resolving conflicts and help both of you understand the expectations you have about marriage and address any significant differences in a safe and neutral environment.
In pre-marital counseling sessions, topics like finances, children, religious/spiritual beliefs and intimacy are the main areas where many couples experience challenges. Couples can also develop communication and conflict resolution skills and address any fears they might have about marriage, whether these concerns result from one’s personal relationship, history, family background or otherwise.
The length of pre-marital counseling with me is usually between 8 and 12 sessions.
