Marriage Preparation

Your wedding day is approaching and you’re ticking off the to do list but have you considered the changes marriage will bring to your relationship?

The reality is 1 in 3 marriages in Australia end in divorce…. I don't use this statistic as a scare tactic but rather I wish to inspire you to go the distance in your marriage.

I love all my couples and I want them to find themselves just as in love 10, 20 or 30 years after their wedding day.

And I know you desire a once in a lifetime love too.

Smart couples focus not just on their wedding day but on their marriage ahead because even the best relationships take work. Over the years you will plan for the future by investing in other areas of life and your relationship should be no different.

Now before you say no thank you and exit the page…. Let me state that this is not pre-marriage counselling (I am not a counsellor) … It's so much cooler than that!

I am a fully qualified and trained PREPARE/ENRICH Program Facilitator.

If you like psychology tests or personality quizzes, you will love the questionnaire and you will definitely enjoy diving into the insights afterwards too.

You might be thinking your relationship doesn’t need to be placed under the microscope….maybe you feel there is nothing to work on, or maybe you’re worried about working on topics that have already surfaced within your relationship.

If your relationship is already strong, you can expect the PREPARE ENRICH Program to increase your bond…

If your relationship has some discernible issues that need addressing, now is the perfect time. This program will not break you, it will make you!

THIS PROGRAM IS FOR EVERYONE- whether you are dating, engaged, newly married or long-time married, you will be SO GLAD YOU DID IT!

What commitment are you making when you sign up to PREPARE/ ENRICH?

Phase 1 Questionnaire

You both complete an online questionnaire (filled in individually) detailing everything about your relationship. You don't have to write anything. It's just a sliding scale of how much you agree or disagree with certain statements. Takes less than 30 mins! Easy!

Phase 2 Findings & Skill Building

We will meet in person at my office in Mayfield or by ZOOM to discuss the findings. We can have a drink together while we are doing it.

We will meet for 4 sessions in total (approx 1.5 hrs each, spaced every couple of weeks depending on your schedule)

  • I'll discuss the findings of the report with you so you can better understand your relationship's strengths and areas for improvement.
  • I'll facilitate meaningful conversations between you both on specific topics.
  • I'll teach you proven relationship skills for you to apply in a practical way.
  • I'll get you to do some workbook exercises during the sessions.

Phase 3 Homework

Now that you know the areas that need nurturing, I will set you a few tasks to complete before our next session. (Not too many- I know you live busy lives)

Phase 4 Couple's Report

At our last session, I'll give you the all-important COUPLES REPORT for you to take home.

Phase 4 Implementation

The final phase is the beginning of your forever. It’s time to use some of the new insights and put your new relationship skills to the test.

You can also pat yourself on the back for investing in your relationship. WELL DONE YOU!

More on the PREPARE ENRICH Program

The PREPARE/ENRICH Program is one of the most widely used programs for pre-marital education in the world. There is a tonne of data behind it…. You'll find your individualised report (which is packed full of statistics and graphs) incredibly insightful and amazingly accurate.

PREPARE/ENRICH will help you and your partner:

  • Identify strength and growth areas
  • Explore personality traits
  • Strengthen communication skills
  • Resolve conflicts and reduce stress
  • Compare family backgrounds
  • Comfortably discuss financial issues
  • Establish personal, couple, and family goals

PREPARE/ENRICH assesses these areas of your relationship:

  • 12 Relationship Scales - communication, conflict resolution, roles, sexual expectations, finances, spiritual beliefs, and more
  • 5 SCOPE Personality Scales
  • 4 Couple and Family Scales - based on Circumplex Model
  • 4 Relationship Dynamic Scales
  • 30 Customised Scales

Why should you do it?

Just taking the time to complete the questionnaire will activate dialogue, discovery and increase the overall quality of your relationship.

The PREPARE ENRICH Program will help you identify and address the issues that are threatening the vitality of your relationship and help you discover your strengths.

Marriage Education is designed to help you and your partner build a more satisfying and intimate relationship that flourishes and thrives throughout your lifetime.

Don't just take my word for it...

Cara & Matt

We didn’t know what to expect going into the Prepare Enrich program. We were aware of most of our relationship flaws and we were able to discuss these openly with Julie. Julie made us feel at ease and like we could trust her. I would recommend the Prepare Enrich program to anyone, even if you don’t think your relationship has any issues to discuss: you will still learn more about your partner, which will set you down the right track before marriage.
