David and his team of registered psychotherapists have been offering pre-marriage counseling to groups of couples across Ireland since 2007. While many couples choose to do their pre-marriage course in a group setting, David noticed that this format was not right for everyone.
Pre-marriage counselling asks couples to examine personal and private aspects of their lives as well as their hopes for the future. Issues such as family dynamics, finances, sexual intimacy and conflict are not always easy to discuss, particularly in front of other people.
In 2010, David created the Avalon Pre-Marriage DVD program to enable couples to discuss their relationship privately, and give them the time to go through the material at their own pace. David wanted the Avalon Pre-Cana course to cover the many aspects of marriage, including practical issues.
He assembled a team of psychotherapists who between them have over 250 years of clinical experience, as well as experts in a number of fields, such as psychology, theology, family therapy, fertility, finance, law and much more besides.
After positive feedback from hundreds of couples, David learnt that couples found that being able to review the material again and again was an added bonus of the DVD programme.
The success of the DVD gave rise to Avalon’s online pre-marriage programme.
Since 2012, Avalon’s online course has been used by thousands of couples around the world in countries such as the United States, Australia, Canada and South Africa, as well as across many countries in Europe and South America.
At Avalon, we believe that all couples benefit from both spiritual and practical pre-marriage counseling, and that we all deserve the privacy to discuss our relationship fully. We hope that you will enjoy our programme as much as the many thousands of couples around the world that Avalon has helped.
