Why prepare for marriage?
While we may know that relationships take hard work and commitment, we are never truly prepared until we arrive. Pre-marriage preparation can help you gain awareness of any unrealistic expectations you may hold, or ways of relating that you have learnt from growing up that helped you cope in the past but are ineffective to build a healthy, intimate relationship. Understanding ourselves better ultimately equips us to bring our best selves into one of our most significant relationships.
Explore your relationship strengths and growth areas
Every relationship has its own strengths and challenges. Prepare-Enrich will give you a customised Couples Report which outlines the unique strengths and areas of growth for your relationship. We will go through the report together so you can get a birds-eye view of the overall health of your relationship.
Receive feedback on your relationship by an unbiased professional
I am a qualified PE facilitator and couples therapist. I work from a strength-based approach to discover and honour the strengths and resources you already possess, as well as guide you through exercises to help yon develop new skills.
Have a safe & intentional space for you to discuss key areas of your relationship together
Life can get so busy that we can forget to create times to check-in with our beloved. Marriage is a life-changing step. Carve out this time together to engage with your partner on a deeper level and prepare well for the lifelong journey ahead.
Learn key skills relational skills
Communication and conflict resolution are essential ingredients to a successful marriage. Some of us may have grown up in families where these were not modelled to us in healthy ways. We will have learn the importance of effective communication and have fun putting them into practice.
A starting point for open communication and relationship goals
While PE is not meant to be diagnostic of relationship success of failure, it gives you a head start to plan and set goals for your life together.
