PRE MARITAL COUNSELLING
This helps couples prepare for a strong, healthy relationship, creating a better chance for a happy, stable and satisfying marriage. It's an opportunity to explore expectations, dynamics, goals and issues that a couple may not have thought of, and learn better communication and conflict resolution techniques.
"MARRY SOMEONE IF YOU LIKE WHO THEY ARE. NOT WHAT YOU HOPE THEY'LL BECOME."
Premarital counselling helps couples prepare for marriage or a long-term commitment. It is the best way to ensure that you and your partner create a strong foundation for a nurturing, honest and healthy relationship : one that leads to a better chance of a happy, stable and satisfying marriage. In course of therapy, intimate partners address concerns that may arise in their relationship, and are encouraged to talk openly about key areas that people often ignore, or are too shy to bring up.
By discussing these issues in a neutral, confidential and safe environment, couples become aware and work through issues from early stages of their relationship. They can address potential areas of conflict before they flare into serious concerns, improve communication skills, set realistic expectations for marriage, identify emotional resources, and develop conflict-resolution skills. That apart, the idea of Couples Counselling is not to make both partners agree on everything. Instead, it’s about cultivating respect for different opinions, values and aspirations, and better understanding and supporting each other during marriage.
The sessions can be via Skype/ FaceTime or phone. Or if you are both comfortable travelling together, you could have a 3-day 'Couples Counselling Retreat' in the beautiful Nilgiri - Blue Mountains, away from the daily stresses. This is where I live and the surroundings are perfect for such an activity.
All sessions are confidential.
