It has been said that society supports the notion that getting married should be easier than obtaining a driver’s license, or even getting a divorce. Giezelle believes that easy access to marriage without structured preparation can be problematic, possibly leading to an unhealthy marriage. Mayfair Counselling offers a brief, comprehensive program affording two individuals time to explore the nature of their relationship. While the needs of the couples vary, there are some common issues that are helpful to explore, including:

  • Communicating effectively
  • Temperaments
  • Beliefs around sex, money, child rearing, division of labour/roles
  • Current irritants
  • Problem solving strategies

Please note, martial prep is offered not in a group setting, but rather, with the couple and the therapist, hence their program can be designed based upon their unique requirements. For example, a couple could meet with Giezelle on a Sunday afternoon for 3 or 4 hours, and that may be all that is required. When more sessions are needed, more sessions are offered.
