It almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But it’s actually far easier — and more accessible — than you might think. There are many benefits of participating in accelerated therapy with your partner or spouse — here are our top five. 

It requires less space in your busy schedules.

We understand that between work, family commitments, children, study, socializing, and the other demands of everyday life, setting aside regular time in two different schedules can be difficult. One of the main benefits of an intensive couples retreat is that it drastically reduces the timeframe it would usually take to achieve the same results. This in turn creates space in your weekly routines to be together, and build the life you both desire.

It provides a container for intensive focus on several areas — rather than just one element of your partnership at a time.

In conventional regular therapy (around 50 minutes per week), it’s usually only possible to fully explore one or two key areas of your relationship during the allotted time. It can often take several sessions over several weeks to really go deep into the main areas of concern. During an intensive weekend retreat, you can cover all major themes (such as communication, infidelity, sexuality and intimacy, financial pressure, children, and career challenges) in greater, focused detail.

There are several different retreat options available to fit your needs and schedules. 

Every couple is different, so it’s important to choose the couples retreat that’s right for both of you. There are many different types of retreats available, including intensive one, two, and three-day retreats, pre-marriage counseling retreats, rediscovery retreats, and more. You can always contact the Relationship Therapy Center to discover which retreat is best suited to your and your partner’s needs. 

You’ll benefit from a tailor-made therapy package, created by a licensed professional therapist

To ensure you get the most from your retreat, we’ll send you a link to your confidential “State of the Union” Gottman Relationship Check-Up. It’s a comprehensive, data-driven way for your therapist to understand exactly which areas of your partnership would benefit from additional focus. Common issues that arise in long-term partnerships include things like friendship, intimacy, emotions, conflict, values, trust, parenting, housework, finances, and more. Using the results of your surveys, your therapist will tailor your retreat package to suit your individual needs. 

It’s a chance to explore and rebuild your relationship using a world-renowned therapy model.
