Pre-Marital Counselling

Build a loving and lasting marriage.

You are wise enough to know that having a fantastic ceremony, great pictures and good food is a lot of fun, but you recognize that if you want to be ready to take on the challenges of life together you’ll need more than just that.

While there is no perfect marriage (we are all imperfect people, after all!), research suggests that couples who get pre-marital counselling report greater satisfaction than those who do not.

Pre-marital Counselling in Bedford, Nova Scotia

Pre-Marital counselling allows you to explore the values, beliefs and ideas you have about marriage in advance of your wedding day, ensuring that you start off your life together on the same page.

It can help you sort out important matters, like navigating tensions with parents, in-laws and family, your views on parenthood and finances.
By exploring your strengths and weaknesses with the help of a counsellor, it can give you more realistic expectations of your spouse and learn how to navigate disappointments when they arise.

I encourage you to invest in your relationship now, so that you can learn how to overcome the obstacles that will inevitably arise after you tie the knot.

Marriage is a wonderful gift, but that does not mean that after the wedding it is always easy to bring two very different people, from different backgrounds into a union of one.

After more than a decade of counselling hurting couples, I am convinced that it is vital to strengthen your relationship and learn how to thrive as a couple, even if you are not currently experiencing any problems.
