Workshops for Enhancing Couples Relationships

Do you want to experience your relationship differently? Perhaps you feel lonely and disconnected or you’re both “stuck” in a self-defeating pattern?

With skillful guidance and support, this workshop creates safe space and a predictable process for you to discover each other in a new way!

Over the course of two days using a combination of psychotherapist led presentations, practical private application exercises, viewing prior demonstrations of other couples, step by step you will learn how to:

  • Make sense of your own emotions so that you can speak in a way that can your partner can hear
  • Understand each other’s “inner world” to make sense of why you both get stuck
  • Address your stuck pattern and change negative cycles to de-escalate conflict, and decrease disconnection and loneliness
  • Build confidence and trust to repair and forgive emotional injuries
  • Shape a new pattern that promotes emotional accessibility, responsiveness, engagement, and intimacy
