Should I stay or should I go? Are you interested in improving your relationship and learning how to live a more relationally skilled life? In these intensives, Clare Mézes, MSc, RP, guides couples in reconnecting and rebuilding their relationship, or, if needed, helps them navigate the challenges of ending the relationship.
Couples' Intensives are offered to couples with complicated life stories, including family of origin trauma, extramarital affairs, addictions, sexuality concerns, and other sensitive issues.
Couples' Intensives focus on naming the truth about a couple's relationship in order to decide whether the relationship can be worked on or not. If the relationship is workable, couples are guided through a process of learning new relational life skills. This helps them to reconnect and rebuild their relationship. If the relationship is unworkable, couples are guided through a process to end their relationship.
Couples' Intensives involve 12 - 20 hours of intensive time and profound work over a period of 3 to 5 months.
A couple can choose to attend for two and a half to three hours at a time, or for a full day.
These longer session times are productive for those who are at a challenging place in their relationship, would like to learn deeply about how their past impacts their current relationship, would like to feel more compassion for one another, as well as gain new skills with which to move forward.
Intensives involve an in-depth assessment of the issues causing distance in the couples' relationship and provide the tools they need to appreciate and feel closer to one another.
