Premarital Christian Counseling
Preparing For Lifelong Friendship
Premarital counseling prepares couples for a life long commitment, managing finances, household chores, sexual relations, 5 to 10 year goals, how to discipline the children, and the like.
Most couples spend more time and money planning their weddings than preparing for their marriages. And, most marriages end in divorce! Our premarital counseling program will help you prepare for a long and satisfying marriage. Doesn’t it make sense to prepare yourselves as best you can for the most important human relationship you will ever have?
Research shows that premarital counseling can reduce the odds of divorce by 30%. Premarital counseling is an investment to start your relationship off in the right direction.
Premarital Counseling Program
I provide an 6 week premarital counseling program that combines my training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and utilizes the Prepare Assessment results. The goal of this program is to lay the foundation for a strong, happy relationship. Prepare/Enrich is a scientifically-developed developed program that has been shown to do the following:
- Explore your relationship strength and growth areas
- Strengthen your communication skills, including assertiveness and active listening
- Resolve your conflicts using the “Ten Steps Procedure”
- Explore your relationship and families-of-origin issues with the “Family and Couple Map”
- Develop a workable budget and financial plan
- Develop your personal, couple and family goals
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
The goals of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT) include helping each partner become more aware of the emotions driving the negative cycle. Never is EFCT about identifying one partner or spouse as “the problem.” Instead, the negative cycle of conflict is the problem to be addressed and changed.
The objective of EFCT is for both partners to learn to better manage their emotions and develop more loving interactions. More important is for both to learn how to speak in kinder and more vulnerable ways. As a result couples learn to create stronger emotional attachments. Then they are in a much better place to solve old problems and face future challenges in a mutually supportive way.
I will tailor the premarital program to fit your specific relationship needs. The cost of your premarital program is an investment in your future as a happily married couple. Please contact us to inquire about fees as we have several options to choose from.
