Counselling for couples who are struggling in their marriage relationship.  No matter how long you’ve been married, it can and should always be better…

Pre-Marriage Counselling

Planning your marriage is more important than planning your wedding. Wedding is just 1 day … Marriage is a lifetime! In the course of 5 sessions, Dr Leon Steenkamp provides pre-marital counselling for individuals and groups. To enjoy each other and a happy marriage. It’s practical and it’s fun.

The sessions are introduced with probing questions such as:

Why do I want to marry you?
How can we improve the quality of each other’s lives?
What is a happy marriage?

After that, each one’s personality type will be evaluated and discussed on the basis of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®).

This is followed by focusing on:

  • Values
  • Religion
  • Communication
  • Intimacy
  • Expectations
  • Adjustments
  • Mutual respect and trust
  • Financial Planning
  • Problem solving
  • Growth, and so on.

The sessions are concluded with a mutual commitment to satisfy each other’s needs in different areas – physical, psychological, spiritual and relational.
