At Therapy Retreats we see clients from across the world as well as from the UK. Many of our clients are couples in considerable distress who wish to access a therapeutic intervention ASAP in order to help them resolve their concerns.
The current COVID 19 Pandemic is imposing major restrictions on clients being able to travel, especially by air. It is also causing therapists difficulties as they try not to breach social isolation guidelines imposed by government directives.
At Therapy Retreats we are frequently asked if it is possible to access our programmes at home by those who find it difficult to get away for a residential retreat. Until the present crisis our policy has been to only offer our couples therapy programmes on a residential basis as we prefer the more personal, face-to-face approach.
In the face of the current COVID 19 Pandemic we have decided to modify the content of our successful retreat programme to make it accessible for clients to follow at home, in the form of a 'mini' self-directed retreat using the same content as our regular residential programme. A sort of 'Virtual Retreat' which will be followed by the couple at home to address their own specific and unique needs as if they were being guided by a therapist on a face-to-face basis. At Therapy Retreats we have been considering how to make our programme available to clients unable to undertake a residential stay; the COVID 19 crisis has forced our hand.
Our 'Virtual Therapy Retreat' is the first of it's kind, making the 85% successful 'Save Your Marriage In Three Days' programme accessible to couples in their own environment. A busy lifestyle, a demanding job, foreign travel, child-care issues have all in the past led to time pressures which prevented clients taking up one of our longer, residential retreats to deal with their issues. Our 'Virtual Therapy Retreat' solves this problem.
The course, run over three days at home in your own time, can bring relationships back from the brink and provides couples with the information and tools required for their relationship to thrive. A committment to the next 21 days ensures that the learnings from the three day virtual therapy retreat continues to have a lasting impact on the relationship. Maintenance material supports ongoing growth and development of the relationship. Any specific individual issues which arise from the programme can be further pursued on an individual basis if required.
The programme for this Virtual Therapy Retreat covers the concepts required for clients to understand the dynamics behind their problems and the process by which they can start changing things for the better. It is not a 'one size fits all' programme but individually designed to meet your specific relationship needs.
"Expertly guided to get our relationship back on track. David offered a fresh perspective to our long established patterns of unhelpful behaviour plus tools to help us change things". "The retreat from start to finish is for couples that truthfully are there to really work. The outcomes and rewards reflect the work put in. Very pleased with content as the programme was flexible and tailored to meet our needs. We would highly recommend David. "
Brian and Rebecca, Somerset. July 2016
"Unlike other therapists David doesn't just listen and talk - he probes, provokes and stimulates thinking and sets tasks and objectives. Provides suggestions for appropriate action. David really gets to the crux of the matter. Very perceptive. Worth all the work to be rewarded with positive results."
Glyn and Sue, Hampshire. October 2016
"The weekend has opened our eyes to where our relationship went wrong, and then brought us together again. David is able to see the wood for the trees and make sense of an overwhelming amount of information to help you get to the heart of the problem. No beating about the bush - straight to the point!"
Michael and Vanya, London. January 2016
"Our only regret is not coming to David sooner. What a difference just a few days can make. Thank you for giving me back my husband". "We would unreservedly recommend 'Therapy Retreats' to anyone experiencing relationship difficulties. Keep up the good work. Found it far better than 'Relate' counselling."
Jackie and Claude, December 2016.
"Arrived hopeless, left with a completely new sense of hope and optimism. Wonderful and life-affirming."
James and Effie, London. February 2016
"We arrived in low spirits! David very skilfully unpicked the mess we had got ourselves into. His straight talking and knowledge coupled with his ability to get to the heart of the matter quickly has put back where we wanted to be - feeling happy, relating to one another positively and excited about our future."
Sarah and Adam, Oxford.
"I wish we had found this retreat a long time ago! I would recommend it to any couple needing help and guidance. So much more effective than all the time we wasted with those week by week sessions. We were initially about to separate and David has helped us back to a place where we feel positive and optimistic about our future together. He is very warm, professional, direct and no fluff! Thank you for your guidance and strategies."
Chris and Heidi, Leicester.
"We are changed when we understand something we hadn't known before."
"The purpose of life is to be happy"
