Premarital counselling in the professional setting helps you to solve problems in your relationship.

Premarital counselling is a quick way to be sure you are in a healthy relationship.

Premarital counselling will focus on those issues that are impacting trust, love and healthy bonding and attachment.

In pre-marital counseling we look at how conflicts are impacting your closeness.

Don't consider conflicts are a negative sign.  On the contrary, two healthy passionate individuals will have personal goals and there will be conflicts. 


Every relationship has difficult issues to deal with.  Once married, unresolved root issues from childhood tend to surface. Pre-marital counselling helps you to recognize serious issues and to be comfortable with getting professional help. Book your premarital sessions with George by calling (416) 234-1850.

Cost. There is a cost - $100 Canadian / per hour - which is paid in advance.  This can be paid easily through the PayPal system (or alternates such as money transfer.)

Personal Guarantee.  If any session goes sour - just isn't exciting, inspiring and fulfilling then I will gladly refund the fees for the session at the time of the session.

"Thank you" George Hartwell for your most helpful counselling.

I experienced this recently by phone.

I live in Australia and you in Canada and yet this was the most beneficial information I've ever experienced.

It is obvious your years of experience and God-given wisdom benefits many people and I'm thankful I am one of those.
