Feeling Good with evidence-based psychotherapy in a warm and supportive environment
Weekend Intensives for Couples
Feeling disconnected from your partner?
You do okay sharing the parenting but wish there was time for the two of you again.
Maybe your last teenager is safely launched. There is a sense of achievement but you feel like you don’t even know your partner any more.
This is the time for preventative action!
My name is Robyn Fowler and I have helped hundreds of couples just like you learn how to reinvigorate relationships that had lost their zip.
Rather than the longer process with weekly therapy, many couples find it more helpful to attend a weekend retreat—an intensive.
Imagine getting away from your usual environment to spend Friday evening to Sunday afternoon focusing on your relationship and having fun! I offer a weekend of couples therapy focused on the particular issues facing you.
What does the program involve?
The retreat Is based on the well respected and scientifically based Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Skills are taught while you are supported to strengthen the friendship between you as well as work through conflict issues. I provide feedback and encouragement to help couples to improve their communication and to set goals about maintaining a closer connection.
What is the schedule?
I start with an initial assessment to be able to help you to derive the maximum benefit from the time we spend together.
Typically Friday evening is an initial intake session where I hear your story and your hopes for the weekend. This is usually 90 minutes and is held between 5 and 6.30 pm. Then you are able to go out to dinner and do some other pleasurable activity while I review the information and the on-line questionnaire you will have completed prior to the weekend.
9:30-10:20 Partner A individual session
10:30-11:20 Partner B individual session
11:30-12:00 Joint feedback and a roadmap for moving ahead.
1:00-2:30 Session with exercises to improve intimacy
2:45-4:30 Session 2 Further exercises to address the issues
The evening is free with some activity suggestions to consolidate what you have learned.
Sunday has a similar structure of 90-minute sessions with a lunch break.
2:45-4:30 Summarize gains, setting homework tasks to maintain the progress.
Weekend Intensives are held in Midtown, Manhattan. The sessions are held in the privacy of the 17thFloor of the Chanin Building, 380 Lexington Avenue.
For those couples living in Westchester, NY Robyn also offers Intensives in the downtown White Plains office.
