A 2 ½ Day Couples Intensive Retreat Just For You!

Finally, a 2 ½ Day Intensive Retreat Designed To Help You
and Your Partner Respect, Connect and Fall in Love Again

This personalized service is conducted only by, Dr. Anne Hancock or Jennie Hopper M.A. and we are with you every step of the way. This 2 ½ Day Couples Intensive is for people who want the best Couples Therapy available and for those who really want to focus on their relationship.

This private Couples Intensive is especially helpful if:

  • You have the same argument over and over again and you can’t get out of the loop.
  • Your relationship has reached a tipping point and you’re concerned. You want to do something now to keep things from getting worse.
  • You love your partner, yet you are thinking about separation or divorce and you want to get off that slippery slope.
  • An emotional or physical affair decimated your relationship and you want to trust or be trusted again.
  • You want to start a new conversation. You want to communicate differently.
  • You don’t understand how you got from there to here…and you are ready for a change.

This Intensive is private and not a group effort. It is designed especially for you and your partner using a protocol that is science based and highly effective.

RomanticThis program is accelerated and we will move quickly from
big picture to your specific issue(s).

We cover 8 – 10 weeks of couples therapy in 12-14 hours within 2 ½ days. During this time we see no other clients and take no calls or emails because we are 100% devoted to you, your partner and your relationship. Your relationship consultant is always fully present for the process and we go through it together. The best way to contact Wellness Counseling Center is by completing this form.

Here are the Three Relationship Essentials you are going to accomplish:

  • Identify your relationship’s negative patterns and key responses
  • Initiate authentic, heart-opening communication between you
  • Move you and your partner toward a safe connection and secure bond

You and your partner will start re-creating a special connection…..what we like to call a sacred space.

“Anne has a kind, effective and balanced approach with couples. She’s gentle but firm about making each person work on their own issues.”

Emotional safety and connection show up differently in every relationship. In the most basic and universal terms, it means being:

— Seen
— Heard
— Appreciated
— Understood
— Valued

…by the person who means the most to you.

It takes a very special person to participate in this kind of intense and focused approach.

You will need to be willing to take yourself off the grid
for a few days and commit to giving yourself,
your relationship and your partner your full attention.

You are invited to consider if this program is right for you. If you and your partner think you would like to get started, here are a few steps to take:

  • Enjoying-TogetherYou and your partner can schedule a 20-minute complimentary phone consultation by completing this form. Once we receive it, a Wellness team member will be in touch to set a mutually convenient time.
  • The consultation is simple, straightforward and designed to find out if this work is right for you and your situation. If your situation is appropriate for this work, it’s time to select a date for your 2 ½ Day Intensive Retreat.
  • Once you select the date, the Wellness team will provide you with everything you need to get started including scheduling a 90-minute Pre-Intensive Skype meeting. This helps your relationship consultant learn more about you and your partner and understand your situation better. It’s also an opportunity for both of you to discuss your issues and set goals and objectives for our work together. We want to be sure this work will be helpful to you.

NOTE:  Once your retreat is on the calendar, you will be responsible for making travel arrangements and hotel reservations. If you are local and do not want hotel accommodations we will discuss details during the application process.

To recap, here are some of the things you will receive and can expect to accomplish in your 2 1/2 Day Intensive Retreat:

  • 1 Pre-Intensive Meeting In Person or Online: This thorough interview and application process is designed to help clearly identify your issues, goals and objectives before you walk into the room.
  • An Intensive Retreat that is scheduled around your calendar, typically weekends, but not always.
  • Your premium Wellness Welcome package will be waiting for you upon arrival.
  • 2 ½ Days of focused, uninterrupted time consisting of 12-14 hours of Couples Therapy.
  • Homework assignments for you to complete each day.
  • Gift cards from nearby establishments to cover your lunches and daytime snacks.
  • A workbook filled with material and exercises for you to take home and continue your program together.
  • Personalized assistance in connecting with an Certified EFT Therapist in your community to continue your ongoing couples therapy.
  • 1 – Post-Intensive Meeting by Phone or Online to follow-up and complete our work together.
  • A better understanding of romantic love – and the pivotal moves and moments that define your relationship.
  • Real life examples on communicating and being more sensitive to your (and your partner’s) emotional needs and responses.
  • Ways to describe and control those negative interactions that hurt and create distance between you.
  • Opportunities for you to turn toward each other to create and shape those positive moments of reaching and responding. (Those are the essential moments that create a secure bond between you.)

By the end of the Intensive, some couples have what they need and find their work complete. Others make arrangements for continuing their work via Skype or periodic in-person visits. In other cases, especially if you are from out of town, we help arrange for continuing work with another competent EFT Couples Therapist in your area. Together, we will decide the best course of action before your departure.

We know how valuable your relationship is to you
and how much you want a new dynamic with your partner
so we will be laser focused on getting results.

You will be responsible for your travel arrangements, hotel accommodations, car rental and evening meals, as well as any entertainment or recreational expenses i.e., golf or spa treatments. If you need some hotel suggestions, please let us know. There are several nearby hotels to choose from.
