5 Benefits of a 1-3 day Intensive Couple Therapy

Have you been going to couples therapy for months but have not seen a lot of progress in your relationship? Or are you in a crisis such as just discovered an infidelity, addiction, or on the brink of divorce? If you want to change sooner rather than later, then an intensive couple therapy session will be perfect for you. Here are five benefits of engaging in 1-3 day Intensive Couples Therapy

You will experience quick results in an intensive.

Having 1-3 days with your partner in couples therapy can jumpstart your marriage. Seeing real change in weekly couples therapy can take weeks and even months. But with an intensive, you get to focus on your relationship and work through issues with your therapist and not have to rush as you do in a 50-minute session. You will have a renewed sense of hope and understanding and connection together. 

You are my VIP clients for the 1-3 days.

I do not see any other clients those days. You have my sole focus and attention. I will focus on your goals and your negative pattern of communication intensely. We will work 1.5 hours – 2 hours at a time and take breaks. If it gets to be too much for you, just let me know and we will take a lunch break or you can go for a walk. My office feels and looks like an upscale spa. You can relax in the waiting room or have some coffee or water in the coffee bar. There are also a lot of restaurants nearby to go to lunch and hotels if you come from out of state.

Enhanced communication:

You will improve your communication greatly in 1-3 days because the extensive time allows you and the therapist to work on the pattern of communication, foster a deeper understanding of each other’s perspectives, and help rebuild the emotional connection. 

Heal past hurts in a short amount of time.

You will have plenty of time to heal and work through past hurts that have affected your connection and relationship over the years. By having this intensive and extra time, you will be able to delve deeper into those issues, understand each other’s pain, forgive each other, and reconnect emotionally. This can take 6 months or longer in regular weekly therapy. 

Skill Building:

You will learn to listen to each other in a better way. Additionally, you will learn how to get more vulnerable and speak from your sadness or pain and this will help to bring you closer. You will learn how to repair after a conflict or after the negative pattern of communication escalates between the two of you. You will get the tools you need for a healthier relationship.

Strengthen Your Relationship in Intensive Couple Therapy in Boca Raton, FL and See Immediate Results.

An intensive couples session has the potential to save your relationship and rekindle the spark that brought you together in the first place. Yes it can be costly but a divorce would cost much more money. Another benefit is that it enables couples to step back from their daily routines and provides a space for reflection on their relationship, goals and shared aspirations, promoting personal and mutual growth. It usually takes 6-12 months of weekly sessions to accomplish what an intensive session can do in 1-3 days!

So don’t hesitate, and call and make an appointment today. Usually, I can book an intensive within the same month. I have helped hundreds of couples using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and I see the most rapid changes when I do intensives with couples! Also if you come from out of state, I can recommend hotels nearby. It is actually recommended that you spend a couple of nights away from home during your intensive so you have time to solely focus on your relationship. Intensives are a great way to rekindle the love and connection in your relationship!
