(INDIVIDUAL COUPLE COURSE)
This course uses the FOCCUS Inventory to develop a comprehensive and realistic picture of the strengths and growth areas of your relationship in a more private setting. The program is an opportunity to share your ideas and expectations, and learn new skills.
We particularly recommend this course if:
- You have been married before;
- You have been in a previous long-term, cohabiting relationship;
- There is a significant age-difference;
- You are marrying later in life; or,
- There are complexities to your relationship that would benefit from specific attention.
Please note, the times available are to indicate your preference only. We will contact you to confirm the appointments with you. This course consists of TWO sessions of 2 hours each, typically one week apart.
