What is A Couples Retreat & Couples Intensive?

Couples Retreats & Intensives focus on the core problems that exist between two people who would like the relationship to work, but feel stuck as to how to make positive changes. These are tailored to your individual needs to maximise the benefits you gain from the Couples retreat or Couples Intensive.

Relationship problems are always about each person individually as well as what is created between two people.

Many people carry much unresolved wounding which may not always be conducive to resolving and forming healthy relationships.

The work focusses on each individual’s difficulties and blind spots as well as the relationship symptoms and problems.
A  couples retreat or couples intensives  will help you and your partner identify the issues of conflict within your marriage or relationship. You will learn what changes are needed in the relationship and in the behaviour of each partner, for both of you to feel satisfied with the relationship.

I have been  leading couples in learning to create more satisfying relationships since 2004. I work in a highly supportive way, respecting and responding to your needs. Helping you to make progress and move towards achieving tangible goals.

My work is based on exploring the process of relationships as a sacred path. Far from being an obstacle to your personal growth and development, relationships can be a catalyst for discovering your authenticity.

When we “fall in love” our deepest need to be seen and understood is awoken. You will learn to understand loving relationships cycles of giving and receiving. You will improve your relational skills and learn tools to dissolve conflict.

The closer we come to another person, the better we come to know ourselves.

Aliveness emerges from a deep connection with yourself and your partner.

Many people return from a couples Intensive or Couples retreat with renewed spirits, having new tools and strategies to continue developing and supporting the positive changes they have made. Relationships grow in visible ways: marriages saved, trust built, commitments increased.

11.30 – 1.00pm You will explore what’s problematic in the way you are relating; why it is problematic. I will use techniques to help you resolve conflict when you feel like you are at an impasse. You and your partner can learn to understand one another and to discuss problems calmly. Acknowledgement that each partner communicates differently helps resolves problems. Partners learn that disagreements are not signs of love loss but are normal occurrences in relationships that can be resolved through communication. Exploring Unconscious Roots of Problems

Or venture into Highgate village which boosts many cafes and the village pantry. What a delightful way to spend a lunch together. I will also have a lunch break and process the mornings work.

This intention here is find new ways to deal with your problems, effectively rewriting the love story of your relationship.
2.30 – 2.45 Break
2.45 – 4pm we will explore the Emotional discord in your relationship which is often expressed as dissatisfaction, criticism, or anger. This may force you to seek comfort from people outside your relationship. We will examine the root of negative emotions and behaviours to find the cause of severed communication between you and your partner. Close for the day.
On Sunday we will work 10 – 4pm. Your second day is structured based upon the therapeutic goals and treatment plan that arises out of the work so far. I will tailor your day based on interventions that best suit the issues you present.
