Before marriage, two people are usually in a long lasting, intimate relationship. Together, they have been through ups and downs, and they may feel their relationship is built on solid ground. Marriage is, however, a whole new frontier for any couple, no matter how long they have been together. It can put new strain on even the most stable of relationships, usually because of family background, temperament, gender issues, etc. A relationship can either be built up or broken down by the bonds of marriage, which is why it is important to speak to someone before making the commitment, because your partner is someone with whom you are planning to spend the rest of your life. When a couple starts to plan their wedding, it is wise to seek pre-marital counselling from a qualified counsellor, such as Deon Binneman. Deon is not only able to act as a counsellor, but he has worked as a minister for many years and is able to also marry the couples he has counselled and built up a relationship with. This combination of being a psychological counsellor and minister gives couples the peace of mind that they are being married by someone who knows them and has helped them prepare their relationship for marriage. His guidance provides reassurance to the couple that they are heading in the right direction, and that their relationship is growing positively. Deon is able to give both members of a couple non-judgmental advice on their issues, as well as healthy solutions to their problems. Professional counselling from Deon Binneman will ensure that a couple is able to air any issues before the big wedding day, which allows for both parties to work on the relationship in order to be fully prepared for marriage. Because Deon is able to marry the couples he has been counselling, their wedding day is made even more special as their minister knows them on a deeper, more connected level and is able to provide a ceremony that is both professional and personal. If you and your partner feel that you need guidance or advice before you get married, from both a religious and psychological perspective, Deon provides effective and thoughtful services which you should consider using.
