We Are Here to Help You Connect With People You Care About, Improve Your Relationships and Enjoy Life.

As the first counseling center in Charlotte, NC to specialize in serving couples, our professional team is uniquely qualified to help you improve communication, re-establish trust, address infidelity, stop your negative cycle, learn to forgive, and understand each other better. Our method (EFT) is the most successful known method for couples and the only one we use at our couples counseling center. Our entire program is designed to support you and your partner.

Our premium programs were created to get accelerated results, for couples in crisis. We understand the pain and sense of urgency you feel when you’re disconnected from someone you love. Intensives are private, research-based and move fast. They’re an effective launchpad to help stop that downward spiral, heal your relationship and reconnect. Our 2½ Day Intensive Retreat is best suited for couples willing to travel to our center for counseling and family relationships in Charlotte, NC. The 1 Day Intensive works best for couples living in and around Charlotte. Wellness is honored to provide remarkable service, valuable information and structured conversations that pull you closer to the one you love.

If you’re engaged or considering marriage, you want to know that you and your partner have a strong, committed connection. You want to understand each other better and secure the foundation of your relationship. Our counseling center helps prepare you to create and maintain that solid foundation. You’ll also have the opportunity to repair any potential cracks you’ve encountered during the dating process. We start with a comprehensive assessment. Then, through deep and meaningful conversation at our individual and relationship therapy center we help you identify core values and clarify strengths, as well as growth areas – always focusing on what’s important to you and your relationship.

“We went to Wellness for an entire year and then some. We are proof that marriage can survive infidelity. We are now 8.5 yrs. after (18 yrs. total) and we are stronger than I ever imagined it would be. The guidance in our recovery was key to our marriage surviving.”

“Find your voice.”

“My husband and I were struggling with many little things and we would constantly battle about money, parenting, what’s for dinner, chores, etc. What we couldn’t talk about was sex. We weren’t intimate anymore and we were both lonely and angry. We learned from the workshop that it’s not trying to figure out who was right or who was wrong but if we reached deep inside we’d see our core feelings. We learned that if we really understood the root emotion we could avoid the triggers that caused our vicious spiral! My husband and I after 15 years of marriage got to know each other in a new way and stopped our attack mode. We still have a lot of processing to do to break our “habit” but we are encouraged. We feel more playful as lovers now too. Thank you to Anne, and the staff for giving us hope!”
