    Gottman Couples Marathon/ Jump Start

    A couple’s marathon is an opportunity for a couple to launch the healing of their relationship in an efficient and powerful way. Marathons are ideal for the couple who has a busy schedule and does not have time to meet weekly. Some couples meet for a 1 day intensive every 2-to 3 months instead of weekly. It is also ideal if a couple is wanting to get a jump start on the assessment process that can take 3 weeks of traditional weekly meeting. The couple’s marathon is a personalized program based on what you are wanting. They can that combines anywhere from 3-12 weeks of weekly therapy into 1- 3 days, depending on the specific intensive chosen. Marathons are more time efficient and cost effective because it cuts out the weekly check-ins and life interruptions that typically occurs with traditional weekly therapy.

    Intensives provide a good foundation for further growth and development and increases the likelihood of continuing with the work of therapy to the point of healing.
Note – This model does not guarantee a quick “cure” from all emotional issues. It simply speeds the process.

    Many couples find marathons to be a great way to spark growth in their relationship when the connection has been lost, the relationship has been hurt/betrayed or you just want to prioritize time growing in the relationship.
When you complete the intensive that best fits your schedule, you will leave with a better understanding of your relationship, new skills to navigate, increased connection, and take away materials to continue to grow.
    Many couples find that after the marathon, they feel better and prepared to work on their relationship on their own. Others find the marathon a great way to jumpstart their couple therapy and decide to continue with weekly sessions. Regardless, you will leave with a better understanding of one another and the things you need to do to get back on track.
Intensives.. 1 day, 2 days, or 3 days?
