Great marriages don't just happen; they take hard work!
Whether you are dating, cohabitating, engaged, it can be tempting for couples to focus on planning for the wedding day rather than prepare for the lifetime commitment that starts after the cake is cut.
At Power to Change, we have been helping marriages grow since 1995. What hopefully starts off as a sun-soaked euphoric wedding day will get more challenging. Over time, as problems come up, we don't feel like we have the needed resources to deal with them. At times, we all can feel like we've hit a road block that as a couple, we just can't seem to work through. Wouldn't it be great to be prepared for these issues and have the tools to walk through them from the start!?
We have designed a Premarital Counselling Course to help equip you for those harder moments while enjoying the good times. Our goal is to help couples have a more holistic look at their relationship in a private setting with one of our trained facilitators. We are not about placing blame but looking at how we can help you work as a team to grow together and shape your relationship into what you want it to be. Relationships were never meant to simply be endured - they were meant to bring life and meet important needs that we all have. We want to help you learn how to keep that vitality in your relationship for years to come.
We use an online assessment that takes about 15-20 minutes for each partner to complete individually. This helps give our trained facilitators a snapshot of your relationship as they meet with you individually as a couple. They will then help equip you with some practical relationship tools and share some insights that are proven to work.
We frequently run our Premarital Counselling Course with those who want to understand and improve their relationship. The questions asked in each assessment are personalised to the couple's relationship: stage of life, situation, challenges, philosophical/spiritual orientation, and personalities.
We want to help you:
- Identify strength and growth areas
- Explore personality traits and how they affect your relationship
- Strengthen communication skills
- Resolve conflicts and reduce stress
- Compare family backgrounds
- Comfortably discuss financial issues
- Establish personal and couple goals
The program is by appointment only (See FAQ for more details)
