Pre-Marriage Couples Counselling/Coaching
"Our lives revolve around relationships - with ourselves, others, and everything we encounter in the world around us.
The more you act in line with your values, the better will be the quality of those relationships and therefore the more enjoyable and rewarding your life will be."
~ Dr Russ Harris"
Pre-Marriage counselling sessions help to prepare couples for marriage by assisting them to gain a deeper understanding
of their own as well as their partner's needs and expectations.
Before marriage is the time to ask the difficult questions and to find out where your and your partner have similar or differing hopes,
expectations, goals and beliefs for life together.
