Intensive Marriage Counseling
Isn’t It Worth A Half-Day of Intensive Counseling To Save Your Relationship?
Come to Suburban Philadelphia for a Half-Day of Counseling in a Private, Comfortable Setting.
Relationships in crisis often need a concentrated effort. You may want to consider a half-day of intensive counseling to get a jumpstart towards achieving your goals.
We offer a comprehensive program geared toward your specific needs. We listen carefully and get to the heart of your issues quickly.
You will go home with communication skills to practice, recordings to listen to, and recommendations of books to read to reinforce your intensive experience.
Can a relationship with years of problems be changed so quickly?
When you both want to save your relationship, the chance of a successful outcome in a half-day intensive is excellent. If only one of you is committed to saving the relationship, you may, after exploring your underlying issues and acquiring communication skills, still experience a successful outcome.
Often a couple just needs to change the trajectory of their relationship so that it is no longer spiraling downward but is on the road to healing. We help you transform toxic emotions that taint your relationship into exciting energy for growth. We have helped more than 1000 couples to save their relationships.
Follow-up sessions, either on the phone or in person, are always available.
We put you and your partner on a crash program to learn effective communication skills.
- How to listen without being defensive
- How to get your point across without demeaning your partner
- How to protect yourself when your partner uses abusive or demeaning language
Couples often fall into old, familiar patterns that have not worked in the past. We will help you change those patterns, keep you on track, and guide you through your issues.
The chance to save your marriage is worth the drive to our office.
If you live anywhere from Northern Virginia to Upstate New York, you are less than a three-hour-drive to our office. A trip to our office may save your relationship.
By the time you consider counseling, you may have already been through many trials. At this point you know you need a completely different way of relating to your partner.
People end one relationship only to find that their lack of effective communication skills pops it’s ugly head again and undermines the new relationship.
If you want to save your marriage and your partner has given up hope and does not want to come with you, we urge you and your partner to call us for a free consultation. We will fully explain how we work, what our methods are and what you can expect. I can tell you from years of experience that many people who come here devoid of all hope leave energized and full of enthusiasm because they at least have a clear understanding of what is wrong and how they contributed to the problem.
Often underlying issues, such as one partner’s inability to express his or her emotional needs, can lead to a spiral of conflicts that erupt with deep feelings of resentment and frustration. Sarcasm, putdowns, or an unfounded lack of trust can make a relationship intolerable.
“Stonewalling” is another dysfunctional tactic that infects a relationship. One partner will shut the other out. Stonewalling makes a bad situation worse. We show couples how to address stonewalling and find better ways to resolve issues.
We teach couples how to confront each other with a “sandwich”. Sandwiches are confrontations that simultaneously confront and support the person you are talking to. You need to confront your spouse with respect and kindness, but you also need to make sure that you are heard. This is a very difficult skill to learn, and we give you the fundamentals for developing this skill.
When couples learn what is really causing problems in the relationship, they can address the roots of their issues.
Smart couples welcome the opportunity to learn and adapt to new information so that they can give their marriage a chance to succeed.
We offer an opportunity to identify and work out issues that have the potential to permanently change the entire emotional experience of your marriage.
Love lost can be regained when you can re-experience the emotions that you both felt when your marriage began. These feelings are never lost. They are just hidden by more painful emotions that grew out of bad habits, ingrained thought processes and poor communication skills. Couples often regain old feelings of love and romance during their half-day intensive.
The fee is only $695 for a half-day of counseling. Upon request, we provide a receipt for reimbursement from your insurance company.
Take the first step towards a better relationship. Make that important first call. We’re here to help you.
