Couples Workshops Or Intensive Couples Therapy?

Couples Workshops

Our group-based interventions are designed to help couples improve their relationship skills and deepen their connection. These workshops involve a combination of learning via slide and video presentations, group exercises, and one-on-one time. The therapist will check in with you and your partner to guide you through the exercises. 

One of the biggest benefits of Couples Workshops is the opportunity for couples to connect with other couples going through similar challenges and who also want to work on their relationships. This can create a sense of connection and support that can be incredibly valuable.

Additionally, Couples Workshops can be a more affordable option for couples who are looking to improve their relationship in a shorter amount of time.

You will have opportunities for private conversations with your partner to practice communication skills based on the exercises provided.

Please know that you are not required to share personal details with the group. It is completely up to you to share what you wish regarding your experience. All participants are asked to maintain confidentiality.

Intensive Couples Therapy

It is a condensed and individualized form of therapy. The main goal is to provide couples with a highly focused and immersive experience that can help them make significant progress in a shorter amount of time.

During intensive sessions, couples work closely with a therapist to address specific issues in their relationship. This can include improving communication skills, addressing trust or intimacy issues, and developing strategies for managing conflict.

This form of therapy allows couples to fully immerse in the therapeutic process. Without the distractions and interruptions of everyday life, couples can focus entirely on their relationship and work together to improve it. This can lead to a deeper understanding of each other and a stronger commitment to overcoming their issues.

We offer Intensive Couples Therapy online. This allows couples to engage in therapy sessions from the comfort of their own home or any location most convenient to them. With this format, you also save time on travel, traffic, and parking, making it easier for you and your partner to fit therapy into your busy schedules.


Which Is Right For You?

Deciding whether to choose Couples Workshops or Intensive Couples Therapy depends on your unique needs and preferences.

While, Couples Workshops can be a great option for those who want to learn new relationship skills and connect with other couples, Intensive Couples Therapy may be a better fit if you want to address specific issues in an individualized setting.

Regardless of your choice, finding a specialized and experienced couples therapist is crucial to help you and your partner learn the right tools and strategies, and build a stronger, healthier, and happier relationship.
