Couples Counseling Intensive

2 ½-Day Couples Intensive Retreat

Designed To Help You and Your Partner Respect, Connect and Fall in Love Again

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. 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. 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 and communicate differently.
  • You don’t understand how you got from there to here…and you are ready for a change.

"Our marriage had hit rock bottom and we could not communicate on any level. We decided to commit to these 2 1/2 days to see what we could learn. The outcome was a better understanding of who we were as a couple and why we were hiding emotionally from each other.

By the end of day two, we finally realized how much we love each other and how much we misunderstood each other. It's amazing how simple, yet how difficult this journey was.

Today I have my life, my loving wife, and my family that I was sure I was going to lose."

Move at an Accelerated Pace

This program will move quickly from big picture to your specific issue(s).

Couples Counseling Intensive

We cover eight to ten 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.

Commit to "Going Off Grid"

Give yourself, your relationship, and your partner your full attention for 2 1/2 days.

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:

  • You 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.

"Dr. Hancock was literally our last hope. We had stopped talking and I could not see the man I loved. We both knew it would take a miracle for us to find each other again.

With Dr. Hancock's help we created a safe place to open up and see that we really wanted each other. The best part… we created something new and we are now embarking on a new marriage with a solid foundation. I felt heard, understood, and valued.

Dr. Hancock is the toughest, most even, compassionate ring master I have ever known. It was the hardest, most fulfilling 2 1/2 days of my life."
