Pre-marriage Counselling

Adelaide Counselling Practice offers pre-marriage counselling to clients to help them create a sustainable, quality, and healthy marriage. When you are about to marry, it is important to understand that your wants, needs, and your values and beliefs may not be the same as your partner’s. It is beneficial to discuss what you have in common with your partner or where you may have differences so that you are both more prepared for any potential disagreements in future. This can help you to build a strong, enjoyable, and healthy relationship.

Pre-marriage therapy will also help couples to identify their strengths and weaknesses to benefit their upcoming marriage. Through counselling, you will get a better understanding and insight into each other’s thoughts and emotional needs. This will help you to be more emotionally connected with your partner and bring you closer together in the short-term and long-term.

Marriage is a long-term commitment. Unfortunately, almost 33% of all Australian marriages end up in divorce, according to the latest statistics. This could lead to many hardships. It highlights the significance of pre-marriage counselling now more than ever.  We offer a warm, supportive, and safe place for couples to discuss what is important to them and help them prepare for one of the biggest decisions in their lives.

Common issues in Pre-Marriage counselling

  • Where do we want to live?
  • Do we want children?
  • Do we trust each other?
  • What are our expectations about intimacy?
  • Is this the person I want to spend the rest of my life with?
  • How are we going to handle our finances?
  • How much do we want to include our families in our lives?
  • What are our expectations about time spent together/apart?
  • Do we enjoy our leisure time together?
