You’ve likely heard the phrase, “marriage is work,” and while it might sound cliché, there’s a grain of truth to it. Every relationship has its highs and lows, its triumphs and trials. But what happens when the challenges seem to overshadow the joys, and every conversation spirals into a frustrating cycle of arguments? This is where Intensive Couples Therapy comes into play, and it might just be the game-changer you need.
Here at Kundalini House, Lee Beaton, our couples counsellor with years of experience under her belt, offers an intensive couples’ program that’s designed to help you and your partner break free from negative patterns and rekindle the love that first brought you together.
The therapy intensive is an immersive, all-in program that focuses on understanding and resolving the issues that are causing friction in your relationship. Unlike standard sessions spread across weeks or months, the intensive program condenses several hours of therapy into one day. This focused approach allows couples to make significant progress in a shorter span, with lasting results that continue to manifest in your relationship long after the sessions have ended.
One of the couples who recently completed the program had this to say: “This intensive couples’ program was a game-changer to my wife and my relationship. We got rid of all the emotional and physical barriers that were holding us back. We felt so safe and supported by Lee, which made it easier for us to be vulnerable and honest with each other. It was tough work, but we left feeling so much lighter and happier.”
So, who are these intensives for?
The program is suitable for couples experiencing a crisis but are both willing to work on their relationship; couples feeling more like roommates and struggling to reconnect; couples with demanding schedules; and even premarital couples who want to kickstart their journey on a solid foundation. Essentially, if you are willing to invest in your relationship, this intensive is for you.
With the guidance of Lee, you’ll dive deep into the patterns that have been derailing your relationship and discover ways to navigate through them. By the end of the session, you’ll leave with a toolbox full of strategies to continue improving your relationship.
However, not every couple is suited for this kind of intensive work. If you’re dealing with issues such as active addiction, ongoing affairs, physical violence, or lack of commitment from one partner, other therapy routes might be more beneficial for you.
