Intensive Couples Therapy | The Couples Clinic - Scientifically Based Couples Therapy, Marriage Counseling
The Couples Clinic
If you live some distance from the Couples Clinic or want to jump start your relationship in a short period of time, we offer accelerated counseling experiences in which you can get your relationship back on track in three days. Based on new discoveries in neurobiology and the science of intimate relationships, our approach will help you and your partner each more fully develop a core set of emotional habits that have been proven to lead to satisfying relationships over 90% of the time.
Throughout the process you can expect that your therapist will..
- understand and care about the things that are most important to you.
- expertly guide you (and/or your partner) through the stages needed for healing and change to occur.
- provide clear leadership and direction during therapy sessions and give step-by-step guidance about how to do things differently.
- operate on the basis of established scientific evidence about relationships, rather than personal opinion.
- challenge you and/or your partner when needed in a direct, yet non-threatening, supportive way.
Intensive therapy experiences are tailored to the unique needs of each couple. However, the therapy often progresses according to the following general plan:
Therapist gathers information and cultivates understandings and attitudes needed for successful day two conversations
In the evening, you listen to audio recordings designed to prepare you for a successful second day
Therapist facilitates healing conversations about past hurts
Therapist helps you break out of gridlocks over ongoing differences
You each receive personalized workbooks to prepare for the third day
Attention turns to improvements needed in each of your day-to-day habits
Cultivating attitudes and interactions that make you and your partner feel loved
You leave with personalized recordings so each of you can sustain changes
