Knowing each other’s ‘Love Maps’ (What’s really important to your partner, their struggles and triumphs, worries and aspirations)
Apparently, the cost of the average wedding in Australia these days is $50,000. That’s a big financial investment, not to mention the emotional investment and significant commitment we are making.
We spend a lot of money and invest a huge amount of time and energy, organising and preparing for ‘the big day’, in order to make it a success. Given the commitment we are about to make, it makes sense to also invest some time and energy into preparing for the marriage itself, in order to make it a success.
Pre-marriage counselling engages couples in discussions and activities designed to help them build a solid foundation for a successful relationship.
Based on the work of John Gottman, pre-marriage counselling will address the following topics:
Nurturing fondness and admiration – appreciating each other
Turning towards each other – building the emotional bank account and having stress reducing conversations
Accepting your partner’s influence
Understanding conflict and how to resolve solvable problems
Understanding gridlock and how to move past it
Creating shared meaning
Both Lindy and Cheryl thoroughly enjoy their pre-marriage counselling sessions and are committed to making the sessions equally enjoyable for their couples.
So, when preparing for your big day, consider booking in for pre-marriage counselling as a way of investing in your relationship and your future together.
