How does the course work
This course consists of four modules for couples planning marriage or long-term relationships.
Delivered by one of our expert Institute of Wellbeing facilitators you will be working with a group of eight couples.
The activities encourage participants to explore what it means to enter into a healthy, loving, long-term partnership while promoting communication and a sense of shared commitment.
Participating couples take part in a series of structured discussions and tasks, using self-analysis, mutual reflection, life-planning and creative visualisation to raise their awareness of what it means to share their life with another person.
Each module requires a minimum of four hours. They can be completed at a time to suit participants over:
- two separate or consecutive days
- four half-days
- eight two-hour sessions
