Marriage and Premarital Intensive in Orlando FL

EXPLORE

What is to be expected from this Intensive?

Our marriage experts have been trained by Gottman and Sue Johnson (created Emotion Focused Therapy – EFT for couples) which incorporates the best of both trainers.  Our counselors incorporate humor, videos, research, course exercises and more. Communication is vital in a marriage and this intensive works to help you hear and understand where your partner is coming from. This intensive spends a lot of time providing relational skills at the start so you can practice applying those skills through real life experiences, which has been proven effective. The material is drawn from current research, aligning with Biblical truths and tailored to meet each couples specific needs.

Where traditional couples counseling goes wrong:

Often, couples call for counseling and ask for a 1 hour session, but one hour is usually only good for one person.  Then the next session is another hour to hear from the other partner.  Then the 3rd session is when the counselors starts to make suggestions.  Often by the 2nd or 3rd session couples give up as they have lost 2-3 weeks and do not feel they have received help.

How it can save money, time and your marriage:

So a marriage intensive is perfect for couples to get over the hump quicker by having a longer first session (2-4 hours) and feel heard on the first session and walk away with tools to improve communication skills and reconnect.  Often a marriage intensive can save time, reduce stress on the relationship soon and money as it could be 11 hours (over 2-3 days), but with traditional hourly visits it could take 20 – 30 hours of counseling which often can take 4-6 months.

After completion, you will have research based practical tools that focuses on dealing with:

  • Trust
  • Money Related Issues
  • Sex/Affairs
  • Conflict/Resolution
  • Communication Skills

These tools will help guide you through arguments in order to minimize each other’s pain and work together.

How long is the intensive?

It will be split into 3 sessions in a total of 10 hours:

  • 1st day: 4 hours will be the introduction
  • 2nd day: 4 hours to implement the tools discussed
  • 3rd day: Follow up/build up consistency.

(Sessions can be modified according to your schedule)

Is this intensive for you?

We definitely try to maximize your time, so we require a screening to be done with one of our counselors to make sure this will be beneficial for the two of you.

A Few Kind Words From Satisfied Marriage Intensive Couples

“Matt’s premarital intensive sessions are a great way to quickly and painlessly go through the essentials of communication, conflict resolution and ultimately rediscover the reasons for originally entering the relationship. I am happy to say that these sessions have strengthened our relationship and given us the tools to cooperatively build and maintain a loving marriage.”

“Working with Matt has been nothing short of life changing. Before we started counseling, our marriage was lacking understanding and true communication. Matt has opened our eyes, and has also given us the tools to have a happier and healthier relationship. Through Matt’s guidance, our bond has deepened, and it will continue to do so, as we have learned to communicate on each other’s level.

During our 5 hour Marriage Intensive, we were able to dissect our current and past stressors more so than what we accomplish in our weekly sessions. We were put into real life situations, and then were taught how to correctly navigate through them with out placing blame on one another. Since the intensive, we have found that it is much easier to overcome and work through challenges and differences than before.

The truth is, Matt does such a great job communicating with his clients that it always leaves us in a better place when we leave. He has helped to build our confidence, our love, and our overall well being. If you are considering counseling, our advice is to take the plunge. It will be the best the decision of your life.”
