PREMARITAL Counselling

Colin walked my husband and I through some big difficulties in our relationship and helped us communicate in ways we were incapable of on our own. Our premarital sessions were absolutely foundational to our marriage, and the safety and trust we felt with Colin was invaluable. He is a gifted counsellor, and we are forever thankful for how he impacted our lives and our relationship.

Congratulations! You're engaged. I am so happy for you. But, don't forget, being in love is the easy part. Staying in love while growing your love is more difficult. The importance of preparing for a healthy marriage cannot be overstated. Most couples will spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars preparing for the perfect wedding that lasts a day, but avoid finding the time and money to prepare for a healthy marriage that will last a lifetime.

Premarital counselling is one of my passions. I believe that couples who invest in their relationship before the wedding have healthier marriages and happier homes after the wedding. Unhealthy models and unrealistic expectations are the plague for newlyweds. Couples need to be prepared for marriage. Hundreds of couples have appreciated my biblical, friendly, but frank approach to helping them learn to be real, be honest, communicate, and problem solve. These are some of the tools needed to succeed at a long, healthy, happy marriage and home. If you're planning a wedding, let me help you plan a life together as well.

Our most basic emotional need is not to fall in love but to be genuinely loved by another, to know a love that grows out of reason and choice, not instinct. I need to be loved by someone who chooses to love me, who sees in me something worth loving.
