EFT Couples Intensive

Concentrated 3-Day or 3-Hour Sessions Focused on Relationship Healing & Renewal

Our EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) Couples Intensive is designed for couples who need in-depth work to break unhealthy patterns, repair attachment injuries, recover from betrayal, and more. The sessions in this intensive offer a deep dive into your relationship, providing concentrated time to tackle significant challenges and create meaningful change.

What is a Couples Intensive?

At Heartswell, we offer 2 different EFT Couples Intensive lengths. The content of the sessions is similar to what we do in traditional weekly therapy, but the larger block reduces time interference. In weekly therapy we have to spend time in each session getting warmed up and returning to the process. In an intensive, more time is spent digging into the work. The intensive format allows us to get deep into the work without the clock stopping us at a critical moment.

3-Day Intensive

Our three-day immersive therapy experience offers the equivalent of 3 months of traditional weekly therapy (~12 hours) in 3 days.

3-Hour Intensive

Our three-hour intensives allow us to combine three 1-hour sessions into one un-interrupted session in order to make concentrated progress on an issue or topic of your choice.

Reasons You Might Book a Couples Intensive Session

Who is it for?

Couples Intensive can help couples who are:

This is NOT meant for crisis intervention

This intensive is not designed for emergency situations such as active addiction, suicidality, major mental health disorders, or intimate partner violence. For these issues, immediate and specialized support is required.

What kind of things will you focus on?

Intensive sessions are personalized to meet your specific needs. Unlike traditional therapy where time is spent getting re-acquainted each week, the extended format of an intensive allows for a deeper and more continuous therapeutic process. We focus on:

When you change the way you see things, the things you see change. — Dr. David Burns

What Happens After the Intensive?

An intensive therapy session offers profound outcomes, including a deeper understanding of relationship dynamics, emotional healing from past traumas, and a strengthened emotional and physical connection. Ultimately, it provides a clear path for future relationship growth and harmony.

Two follow-up sessions are included in the cost of the three-day intensive. These sessions, typically scheduled at two and three weeks post-intensive, help integrate your experience and determine your next steps. They may be with the same or a different therapist trained in EFT.
