Pre-Marriage Counselling Sydney

Pre-Marriage Counselling Sydney

Premarital counselling helps couples prepare for marriage. It can help you and your partner have a strong, healthy relationship, forming an excellent foundation for a stable and satisfying marriage.

In my years of experience as a therapist, I have seen numerous married couples with longstanding issues that could have been prevented with premarital counselling. This is exactly why I encourage you to explore a number of key relationship questions and share a vision of an ideal future, so you can establish effective communication and sustain loving feelings in the long run.

Imagine the benefits of having someone to help you with common marriage concerns like raising children, dealing with extended family and more. The purpose of proactive pre-marriage counselling is to give you the strong foundation and communication skills to withstand the issues that may pop up and break your marriage.

What is Pre-Marriage Anxiety?

As your big day gets closer, feelings of stress, doubt and ambivalence may overwhelm you. Getting married is a life-changing event: it may bring relocation to a new home, the creation of a completely new family, and many other big and important decisions. It may even cause you to start wondering if marriage is the path you should follow.

You may be surprised to find out that ambivalent feelings are present in every relationship – and it’s okay to have contradictory feelings about our partner. Both partners feel appreciation and irritation, fulfilment and disappointment, all at the same time. The only method to make headway is to acknowledge our concerns. If couples deny frustrations and hope for the best, that will certainly lead to resentment.

The success of your marriage will be determined by how you decide to deal with premarital anxiety. Pre-marriage counselling in our Sydney office is a proven and effective way to beat the inevitable challenges that will come and make your relationship stronger.


How Does the Premarital Counselling Process Look Like?

First of all, we focus on constructively addressing any fears and concerns you and your partner have about marriage. After that, I will teach you essential relationship and communication skills, and then we will proceed to explore questions that are vital for the health of your relationship.

Once we resolve the issues that could undermine your forthcoming marriage, we will have strengthened the bond between the two of you, enabling you to engage with each other with honesty, care and understanding. Premarital counselling will also help you create a shared vision for the future which will lead to a happy marriage.


Pre-marriage counselling can help you identify the issues in Your relationship

Many people think that premarital therapies are only for couples who are already facing challenges and difficulties. However, this kind of counselling is useful even if your relationship is strong: it can help you and your partner learn how to identify the issues and handle the conflict that will inevitably arise at some point in your marriage.

Pre-marriage counselling is a form of family therapy designed to help couples stay connected even during times of crisis. I will work closely with you to provide conflict resolution strategies which will help you realise your partner is not the enemies – even in situations such as financial crises, when partners can blame each other.

Pre-Marriage Counselling FAQ

A certain level of pre-wedding anxiety is perfectly normal and part of the tremendous life transition that is marriage. You certainly shouldn’t feel anything is wrong with you. But should the stress and anxiety overwhelm you, we are here to help you manage it through a carefully curated program.

Healthy communication about marital issues like starting a family, finances, religion, intimacy and relationships with other family members.

There are no telltale signs that indicate a couple should seek counselling before marriage. We encourage couples to attend at least one counselling appointment, but the decision ultimately rests with you as a couple.

If you have particular concerns or just need reassurance about your relationship before tying the knot, we are here to help.

Counselling is not for everyone. Try to understand your partner’s reservations before making a judgement on how you feel about them not wanting to attend. Some people are very private and might feel like they don’t want to share intimate parts of their lives. Perhaps your partner had a bad experience with a therapist. Try talking about counselling in a positive way: remember it is an opportunity to learn helpful skills to deepen your connection and work through any concerns you may have.

Most therapists agree that anywhere from eight weeks to six months is sufficient when it comes to premarital therapy. However, it really depends on the issues you (and your partner) want or need to cover within your sessions.

Many studies have shown that premarital counselling can be an effective tool before beginning your married life. It can equip you with the necessary skills to improve communication and conflict management, while strengthening the overall quality and satisfaction of your relationship.
