About Premarital Counseling

Preparing for your marriage is important.  A great way to prepare is by utilizing premarital counseling services.  In fact, it has been found to reduce the rate of divorce by 30%.

Holistic Wellness Practice’s premarital counseling program provides excellent preparation in specific areas to set you and your partner up for a successful marriage.

Focus Areas

  • Communication

  • Conflict and stress

  • Career and finances

  • Relationship roles and intimacy

  • Extended family and kids

Using the Prepare/Enrich (P/E) assessment, along with principles from the Gottman Method, Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, and other effective interventions, let HWP better equip you for your best marriage possible.

How it Works

  • After you meet your premarital counselor, you will be emailed a link to go online and take the P/E couples relationship assessment. It is important that you and your partner take the assessment separately and as honestly as possible, and do not discuss the test with each other. It usually takes about 30 minutes to complete. P/E is very reputable and widely used.  It helps couples see an unbiased, clearer picture so that your counselor can dive deep with you to work on important matters.

 

  • In your subsequent sessions, your counselor will go over the results of your unique assessment and will have a tailored, specific plan for you and your partner based on your own individual results, issues, and needs.

 

  • Your counselor will walk with you through each of the areas listed above, using structured exercises to help you make improvements and grow in your understanding of your partner and relationship. Sometimes there are homework assignments to do between sessions, to make sure you are implementing what you learned into your every day life.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I schedule an appointment?

If you are a new client, you may schedule your complimentary consultation or your initial appointment by visiting the contact page and filling out the short form or outreaching to our administrative assistant or directly to your desired provider by calling (470) 740-7121.

Do you accept my insurance?

HWP does not accept insurance. Managed care companies were created to “manage” and contain escalating health care costs. Their bottom line is to reduce costs and raise profits; it is not to increase the quality of care professionals provide or your quality of life. HWP is solution-focused on quality of life and personal goals.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you need to cancel or change your appointment, we ask you to inform your provider at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled session start time. Your full session fee will be charged for missed appointments and cancellations received less than 24 hours in advance.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, credit cards, and health savings (HSA) or flex spending account (FSA) cards that have a major credit card logo on it are all accepted forms of payment.
