Beliefs

One of the things that we can cover together in our PreMarital sessions is a comparison of your beliefs and values as a Couple. This can be important because these underlying belief systems are part of the scaffolding of marriage.

Many arguments are based not on actions but on disagreements in values. This is especially true in parenting together.

I don't do religious counseling but if you want to discuss the impact of religious or spiritual beliefs on your upcoming marriage we can include that.

PreMarital Exploration of your underlying values

If you're already aligned in these areas we can skip this as a topic. If you feel that there are notable differences between you then we can include that in our sessions.

I can help you have successful and secure emotional negotiations by learning to use positive communication skills.This will assist you to create balance and compromise so that your values can be more aligned as a married Couple.

Assessing & accommodating values is a key element in emotional intelligence

Finding peace with what is different is a challenge but being in sync is a joy.
