This is a 15 hour program of individual and couple Relationship Counseling, which typically takes place over 3 days. Variations are offered; your Couples Therapy Retreat is designed and paced according to your particular needs.
If you feel resigned, frustrated, angry, deeply hurt, or you feel you are unheard though you’ve repeated the same things over and over again, a Retreat might be just what your relationship needs. This experience is designed to help you shift from disconnection into empathy and connection and to equip you with the tools to communicate effectively, listen deeply, and express yourself to your partner.
- You will understand your own and your partners pasts, as well as the ways in which these impact your relationship today.
- You will have insights leading to compassion for yourself and each other.
- You will have the opportunity to practice implementing the tools you learn to address the particular challenges in your relationship.
Couples Therapy Retreats are booked with only one couple at a time, so each couple gets the individualized attention and format that their relationship needs. There are no group formats. This is truly an opportunity to repair, reconnect, and boost your relationship exponentially.
Included in your Retreat is a 30 minute pre-Retreat call to discuss your concerns, and Retreat logistics. There is also a 30 minute post-Retreat call for follow up.
Therapy Retreat timings will be discussed during the initial call and customized to suit your availability. There will be individual and couple sessions spread out through the day. A typical Retreat day includes 5-6 hours of therapy with a lunch break in-between, with a total of 15 therapy hours spread over 3 days. Timings are flexible and an individually customized schedule will be set together with you, prior to your Retreat.
The Couples Therapy Retreats are intended for you to focus on your relationship in a concentrated, and enhanced manner, away from daily life stressors, responsibilities, and schedules. This intensive format aims at achieving the progress and benefits of months of traditional therapy in just a few days. Retreats are ideal to create the momentum for the in-depth treatment and healing needed to address long standing relationship wounds and negative patterns.
These are especially helpful for couples experiencing significant relationship distress, as Retreats can be game changers that entirely shift your starting point. Retreat participants report increased understanding and empathy in their relationships, and radical positive changes in their deep rooted, distress causing patterns.
“Extraordinary healing experience. I have never been in a dedicated workshop/ meeting that I found I got so much out of that was applicable every day of my life. This has enhanced my opinion of my partner and created a renewed sense of excitement to meet my “new partner” in our renewed marriage.”
