Pre-Marriage Counselling Johannesburg

When you take the next step in your relationship, whether you’re moving in together or you’ve got engaged, you fully expect to enjoy an easy and relaxed stage in your relationship. Often this doesn’t happen, and here at Couples Help we see many couples who are scared and feeling confusing negative emotions. Couples who have recently moved in together or got engaged often fight and this can be worrying, but if you’re looking for a way to do it differently to other couples, the chances are you’re asking yourself the question of what needs to change in your relationship. This is where pre-marriage counselling can help you to prepare for the next step

These feelings are all normal, and you’ll feel reassured to know that you’re definitely not alone. Using Imago Therapy, Couples Help is here to help you grow as a couple and positively transform your relationship with each other.
