As Valentine’s Day approaches, Central Indiana couples can safeguard the health of their relationship with a free Couples Check-Up or complimentary Pre-marital Prep Session at the Christian Theological Seminary (CTS) Counseling Center. The 50-minute sessions with a CTS resident or intern will be offered from Monday, February 11, thru Friday, February 15.
Couples Check-Ups focus on helping couples nurture their emotional connection and enhance intimacy through improved communication and empathy. Participants complete a questionnaire which is reviewed by a member of the CTS Counseling Center. Using the information provided, a CTS counseling resident or intern provides couples with suggestions to strengthen and enhance their relationship.
According to CTS Counseling Center Clinic Director Chris Falley, MA, LMFT, the check-ups can benefit even vibrant relationships. “Maintaining communication and empathy is important throughout a relationship. Acknowledging your interest in better understanding and empathizing with your partner can be a powerful way of conveying your investment in a relationship and may yield benefits that are sustained far longer than flowers or candy,” Falley said.
Couples can call (317) 924-5205 to schedule an appointment for either program. Sessions are available on a first come, first served basis Monday thru Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. The CTS Counseling Center is located at 1050 West 42nd St. in Indianapolis. More information
