FAQ’s: EFT Couples Intensives
Couples Intensives in Brighton and Hove and Online
Spending personalised private time together in an Intensive Couple Therapy format can help jump start your relationship and emotional connectivity. As a result, couples find new hope, understanding, and the feelings of togetherness they have been so desperately missing, often for many years.
A Couple Therapy Intensive offers the same weekly Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy process but with longer day-long sessions over 1 to 3 days.
Is it cost-effective?
There is no time wasted in an Intensive; every minute counts towards progress. In most cases, you will save money, and, more importantly, this format will get your relationship back on track faster than with weekly sessions.
What is the schedule?
Then we break for lunch. After the break, we have a two-hour session in which we start to unpack your negative interactive pattern and how you both cope.
If you sign up for a second day, we will begin with a two-hour block in the morning, a one to two-hour break for lunch and then a two-hour block in the afternoon; it will be the same schedule for a third day.
This schedule is flexible, and I am available to you throughout the day. You may get to a good place in less time than the two-hour joint session. We may then take a break to help your brain and body integrate what you have experienced. On the other hand, you may both decide to not have as long of a break and come back early. We will make these decisions together.
At the end of our time together, we will review what we did and discuss the next steps.
How much does it cost?
The cost is dependent on how many days you would like to work.
1 Day £400, 2 Days £800 3 Days £1,200
How do we know if the Intensive is the right choice for us?
What does the consult entail?
The consult is a 30-minute meeting over the Zoom platform. It is required for you both to be on the call together, in the same location. There is no fee for the consult. During this consult, we can make sure you are a good candidate for the Intensive, that you feel comfortable with me and have an opportunity to ask any questions.
Is the Intensive helpful if we are not in a crisis?
What are the next steps?
I will send you an introductory letter and forms and a short intake form to complete to your email address. This gives me essential information so we can start work straight away.
I encourage you to read (or listen to) Hold Me Tight by Sue Johnson. Sue developed the model of EFT; it will give you a good sense of the kinds of conversations we will have during the intensive. It is unnecessary to do the exercises at the end of the chapters.
I am very excited to start this work with you both.
