Pre-Marital Counselling

Pre-marital counselling is highly recommended. Because generally, couples in the UK only tend to seek professional help, when their relationship is at breaking point. However, it has usually taken a number of months/years for a couple to get to this crucial point. Usually, the problems have building up over a long period of time.

Pre-marital counselliing or pre-living together therapy is a great way to prepare you both for getting married.  Or if you are planning on moving in together. Talking things through, with the help of a professional relationship counsellior can prepare you both.

Most importantly, a couple counsellor is not emotionally involved. This means they are able to focus your attention on how issues might begin. It also helps in raising awareness of the most common pitfalls that can lead to a relationship breaking down before that happens.

How does pre-marital counselling work?

You will spend some time looking at how your relationship is currently, along with who are as people. We all change over time as do the feelings you have about your partner that develop and mature over time. Having an understanding of the stages relationships go through can really help you change and adapt together. You will learn the importance of being open and honest and how to say things in the ‘right’ way.

Furthermore, we will provide the right tools to help you deal with conflict as soon as it arises. Because most importantly, this will help stop hurt and resentment building up.

Whether it’s for the first time for you or if you are making a new start. Pre-marital counselling looks at hopes, fears, expectations around marriage or living together.
