Is a Couples Intensive For You?
Many couples benefit from a traditional counselling approach (60-minute sessions booked weekly or bi-weekly), but there are times when a couple needs to see positive change as quickly as possible or needs time to work through issues more thoroughly in one session.
In the traditional counselling approach, couples will usually attend a few sessions before noticeable changes occur in their relationship - for those in crisis or eager to see change quickly this can mean a number of weeks of ongoing distress, which can seem hopeless and overwhelming.
For couples who are feeling stuck, in distress or who are looking for meaningful change quickly without attending multiple sessions, our couples' intensives can help you get to the heart of the matter quickly, discover where you're getting stuck and learning how to work with each other to improve the relationship.
With our couples' therapy intensive, in just two sessions, we'll help you to learn and practice ways to rebuild trust, intimacy and connection, to see, hear and understand your partner better more seen so you can tackle any relationship challenge.
There are times where fixing your relationship can’t wait. You can find trust & connection with couples intensive therapy in Niagara Falls, ON. Book a free consultation today!
