Pre-Marital Counseling

O'Fallon, IL Premarital Counseling


Pre-Marital Counseling Workshop: 

A One-Day Workshop serving the Metro-East Area.
Groups meet at the main office of Horizon Hope Counseling 
at 785 Wall St., Suite 200, O'Fallon, IL 62269
Choose one of the following Saturday dates:

April 28, 2018, 9 AM-12 PM

August 25, 2018, 9 AM - 12 PM

Cost: $150 per Couple for 4 hours.

Includes:  Couples can choose one of two options:

1). Three to four Individual Couple Sessions at a rate of $75 for each session or you may use your insurance, if possible.

2).  The Pre-Marital Counseling Group Experience, (which most couples choose), listed below.  It costs less, and most couples really do enjoy the time together in the group.

*The Group time is for 3hours, from 9 AM - 12 Noon, where couples are present, however, most of the time the two of you spend discussing issues as a couple.  The discussion is facilitated by one of our Horizon Hope Counseling Therapists.

*The other part of the Pre-Marital Counseling Group Experience is one additional hour with just the two of you scheduled with one of our therapists.  We will try to find a time that best works around your schedules and schedule a time prior to the group time you have chosen.  We have therapists that work most days of the week, so we will try to find a time that works for everyone.  

The cost of the entire 4 contact hours is $150. The check is written to Horizon Hope Counseling, and sent to:

Horizon Hope Counseling
785 Wall St., Suite 200
O'Fallon, IL 62269
Once your names are  down, final reservation is made when we receive payment, and have the date of the wedding, the place of the wedding, and who is officiating the ceremony.

Belleville, IL Marriage Preparation Workshops "Dear Steve, My couples who have attended your pre-marital sessions as a part of the group sessions, or as individual couples, have always made it a point to tell me how much they  enjoyed learning all your valuable information and tools to prepare them for a healthy marriage.

They always state that you cover a wide range of topics and issues they would have never discussed, and realize the importance of knowing how each person feels on those issues before marriage.  Many of my couples talk about the fact that they learned the importance of having God as a part of their marriage, and that they learned respect for one another is as important as love.  The couples have gained a very healthy opinion of counseling and have stated that they would never hesistate to seek counseling if they, as a couple or individually, would need to.  That statement alone lets you know they have  learned from you a very important lesson, that there is always helpf for them and their marriage and to seek help before things have gone beyond repair.  Keep up the good work of helping married couples start out on a strong foundation in their marriage. Blessings."
