The Impact of Intensive Couples Therapy for Long-term Change

Are you and your partner ready to reignite your love and rediscover intimacy, compassion, and joy?

Couples’ Intensives offer a transformative journey tailored just for you. In these one- or two-day immersive sessions, we create a haven where you can openly discuss feelings, improve communication, and deepen your understanding of each other.

As your couples therapist and coach, I’m here to guide you through challenges and create an environment where you can grow and better understand each other. Picture us navigating through the crossroads together, empowering you to overcome obstacles and quickly emerge more robust and connected.

Can a 2-Day Couples Intensive Spark Relationship Transformation?

Just as individuals can change during significant moments, couples who join intensives embark on a powerful journey of discovery and healing. It’s an opportunity to confront challenges, overcome obstacles, and become stronger and more connected.

Ultimately, a Couples’ Intensive offers your relationship the dedicated space and compassionate support it needs to thrive. It’s an opportunity to embark on a profound journey of healing and growth, where we explore the surface-level issues and the deeper spiritual dimensions of your relationship.

A Couple Intensive is a good choice if you seek transformational change and need it now, not in 3-6 months or a year.

You’ll uncover the wisdom and insights that can permanently transform your relationship, fostering more profound understanding, connection, and harmony.

Unlocking Breakthroughs: The Power of Intensive Therapy

If you find committing to traditional weekly therapy sessions challenging, individual therapy stop-start can sometimes disrupt progress. While weekly therapy sessions offer valuable support and guidance, they may not always allow for the swift progress and breakthroughs that can occur in a more concentrated format.

That’s where intensives come in. Unlike weekly sessions, which may spread progress over time, an intensive offers the opportunity to dive deep and address specific issues more comprehensively in a shorter period. Couples can make significant strides and create lasting change in their relationship by dedicating one or two days to focused work.

Traditional weekly sessions remain a valuable option for ongoing support and maintenance. However, an intensive approach can be more impactful and concentrated for couples seeking to accelerate progress or address pressing issues efficiently.

Following our sessions, you’ll leave equipped with a bespoke toolkit tailored to your spiritual and emotional journey. It’s akin to immersing yourself in a new language, where every lesson cultivates fluency and a more profound sense of connection and growth within your relationship.

In a true you-and-I relationship, we are present mindfully and non-intrusively, the way we are present with things in nature. We do not tell a birch tree it should be more like an elm. We face it with no agenda, only an appreciation that becomes paarticipation.  David Richo

Foundations for Relationship Success

The couples intensive is built upon the Developmental Model crafted by Drs. Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson, as well as the Fusion to Union model by Chris Robertson and Re.Vision.

These models underscore the natural stages couples navigate and the significance of differentiation, individuality, and unity within the relationship. This understanding helps address common relationship challenges.

The Developmental Model provides a structured framework and practical tools. The Revision model, rooted in depth psychology, also explores deeper meanings, imagination, and unconscious dynamics, including dreams and soul connections.

Inside Your Couples’ Intensive

The intensive is a private, bespoke experience.

We meet for an initial consultation, and I will let you know if an intensive is the best fit for you and your relationship.

Before the intensive, you’ll complete questionnaires, the answers to which will help me design your intensive experience.

The intensive day is planned; you will have a roadmap before we start. A typical day will begin at 9 am and finish at 5 pm.

We will have breaks, and a 60-minute lunch break ensures you have time to rest and recharge between sessions.

You’ll receive a custom pack with powerful exercises, extra resources, and actionable tools you can use daily — helping you stay on track.

The intensive can be scheduled during weekdays or weekends. Sessions are held in person, with locations available in Pimlico, Central London, and Bromley, SE London.

While Zoom sessions can be efficient from anywhere, full-day sessions may not always be the most effective option. If you’re interested in exploring online alternatives, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Whether you choose a one-day or two-day intensive, the immersion creates momentum you can carry home.

Areas of Focus for Your Relationship Journey

You do not have to be in crisis to benefit from a Couples Intensive. An intensive experience is also suitable for relationship maintenance and growth. If you’re a busy entrepreneur or professional, intensives are also a great way to refocus on the relationship.

There are also some emergencies when your relationship will benefit from intensive care.

Discernment Support: Making a Final Attempt

Deciding whether to end your marriage is one of your most critical choices.

Sometimes, couples decide together to part ways. But when there’s a crisis, or one partner wants to stay while the other wants to leave, it can feel like a daunting and painful limbo.

Couples’ Intensives offer a swift and thoughtful way to navigate this uncertainty. By dedicating this time to each other and your relationship, you increase your chances of making a clear decision sooner, which can reduce ongoing pain and distress.

Affair Recovery

Affairs create confusion, hurt, and uncertainty. Couples can struggle to recover from betrayal on their own because they lack the time or skills. Couples’ Intensives provide a safe, supportive environment for couples to understand what has happened from a developmental and symbolic perspective.

Midlife Exploration

Midlife brings many challenges to a relationship: menopause, children leaving home, adult children returning home, parental illness, and the feeling of ‘what is next for me and us?’

Navigating these transitions requires resilience, open communication, and a renewed sense of purpose for both partners.

A Couples Intensive offers couples facing midlife challenges a focused opportunity to navigate transitions with support and guidance.

Through intensive therapy sessions, couples can address their feelings, enhance communication, strengthen their relationship, and develop practical strategies for managing stress and uncertainty. Couples emerge from the intensive with a deeper understanding of each other and clarity about the vision for their future.
