FOCCUS Program

FOCCUS is a questionnaire-based, pre-marriage education course for couples. Each partner completes a comprehensive questionnaire related to their relationship and future marriage, or long term relationship, with the assistance of a trained FOCCUS facilitator. The facilitator works with the couple assisting them to compare their identified areas of strength and challenge. The program must be completed at least two months before the wedding. Private after hours sessions need to be booked well in advance.
