Pre-Marital Counselling

Pre-Marital counselling is a specialized type of therapy that helps couples prepare for marriage. This is accomplished by allowing you both to openly discuss various important aspects of your future together. You are able to talk out problems or concerns and get an outside opinion, therefore helping to ensure that you and your partner have a strong, healthy relationship. This gives you a better chance for a long and satisfying marriage!

This exciting time in your lives, a huge decision to spend the rest of their lives together, is something that Free as a Bird would love to assist you with. Planning a wedding takes a lot of time, effort and energy.  Many couples may become so wrapped up in this process that when their wedding day is over, they hit a low.  So much time has been spent planning their DAY but little time is spent on planning their LIVES together.

Free as a Bird has designed a workshop to assist couples.  This work shop is non-confrontational and provides an opportunity for honest discussion of hopes and expectations in the marriage.
