Private PreMarital Counseling Sessions
We believe quality Pre-Marital Counseling is essential to creating a strong foundation for healthy marriage.
Whether it is a first marriage for a young couple or a second marriage blending a family, there are many important issues that couples need to discuss prior to their wedding day. Likewise, there are some basic communication, listening and conflict resolution skills that can assist couples in building intimacy rather than barriers. Abundant Life, P.C. Counseling Services offers a premarital counseling series that utilizes PREPARE/ENRICH® (the #1 relationship inventory and couples assessment tool) combined with the facilitators' years of wisdom, training in marital counseling, and personal marital experience to create a program designed to deepen couples emotional connection. Each partner in the couple completes an inventory on line that is scored and the results create a profile that is sent directly to the PREPARE/ENRICH® Facilitator. The facilitator utilizes the couples personalized results to encourage couples to have open discussions while learning important relational skills. Couples can participate in these sessions privately, in several 1 hour sessions, over several weeks or in a few longer sessions. Scheduling will be customized to meet each couples needs.
