Private sessions and bespoke retreats for couples

Sessions and private retreats are available for heterosexual and lesbian couples (either by skype or in person) who would like more focused in depth, personal support with their relationship. 

All couples have challenges within relationship and this is normal. What is challenging is the pressure that society puts on couples to be 'happy together'. It can be hard to seek support as it's easy to feel a sense of failure if things are not going well or as you hoped.

Perhaps it is such that you deeply love each other and know you want to be together but there are areas of the relationship that are not flowing so well and you would like to build on what works well and seek support with what is difficult. 
Or maybe you have been stuck for a while and constantly in conflict and just don't know how to get through it.Or maybe things feel 'dead' and your just ticking along but not really connecting anymore. Or maybe your at the point where thing are so difficult you want to end the relationship. Whatever and however it is your welcome to bring it all. I offer a safe and loving space to support you both to come to true choices about what you want and then how to create that.

It is in my view a wise couple who recognise the wisdom in seeking guidance and support from outside the relationship whether its good or difficult. It can be very helpful to have more focused time and space with an experienced relationship guide who has the skill and experience to see what is happening at the deepest level and help the couple get back on track. Whether you have been together for 40 years or 4 months you are welcome. For couples who have been together for many years it can bring back that connection that you remember having all those years ago and for new couples starting out it can help create a strong foundation for the relationship to be able to navigate the potential ups and downs to come.

What's on offer for you as a couple

There are various options for you as a couple to receive support, below is information and exmaples of what is on offer. It is also possible to chnage any of them, add or subtract, or create your own bespoke package. Please contact me if you want to discuss anyhitng that is outside of the suggestions below . . . . . 


Sessions via skype

It is also possible to have sessions over skype. I usually recommend 90 minutes minimum as things can often take a little longer when there are 2 people. Please contact to discuss. I charge £65 an hour for skype sessions.


Sessions at EarthHeart centre 

Face to face sessions take place at the EarthHeart centre in the forest of Dean (very easy to get to by car or public transport from London and other UK places). There are various optiopns

  • Weekly/fortnightly/monthly 1-2 hour sessions
  • Breakthrough session 3-4 hours
  • One day intensive 
  • Two day retreat 


Regular ongoing sessions

These are suitable for couples who live within a resonable travelling distance to EarthHeart. They can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly and are usually 90 minutes each. 

Breakthrough sessions

These are usually 3-4 hours and are helpful if you want to look at a particular issuse in your relationship and tackle head on. An issue that maybe feels really stuck but you want to give it your full focus and intention to breakthrouhg the stuckness. This is also sutiablke if you have small children and cannot take more than a few hours away from family life. 

One day intensives

These are designed to give enough space and time away from your life for a day to really work on the relationship. Maybe there is an issue that keeps arising over and ovr agaon and you just don't seem to be able to move through it . . . .

PRACTICALS
Arrival is at 10am and we would end by 4.30pm with a lunch break in the middle. Some couples prefer to come for a one day intensive rather than a two day retreat for various reasons, either due to budget or because taking more time away from work or family is not an option. 

COSTS: £195 per person

FOLLOW UP
I suggest a follow up 90 minute session over skype after a month or two. It may be that more than one session is helpful in which case that is also an option to continue or come back for more longer sesions again to EarthHeart.

AN EXAMPLE OF A ONE DAY INTENSIVE
Arrive 10am and have a cup of tea
First session 10.30am-1pm
break for lunch 1- 2pm
Second session 2pm-4.30pm Including summarising and where to go from here 

AVAILABILITY The day intensives are offered weekdays Monday to Friday throughout the year, excluding bank holidays, Christmas and Easter. Generally speaking there's a 2 months wait time for an available slot.

If you would like to book please CONTACT JEWELS


Two day bespoke retreats

These retreats are one of our most popular offerings for couples. 
They are totally unique in the UK and quite different to going to regular therapy, couples counselling or to a couples workshop. 
Because we are together over a longer period of time this provides spaciousness without stress to slowly go deeper into what needs healing and stay with it, so there is no feeling of rushing.
It also gives integration time between sessions and this is a key component that supports sustained change to happen. This is also supported by the fact that you away form your daily life with all the distractions and demands that brings. You stay at EarthHeart during the whole time which creates the feeling of safety and being able to stay focused and supported. The retreats provide a held, safe, professional and confidential context to tend to your relationship in whatever aspects of it are needing to be healed. Because I am only working with you I can focus 100% of the specific issues you feel need attention and stay with you through the jounrey, and support you every step of the way. 
Some of the time during the retreat will be face to face and some of the time might be spent in the privacy of your bedroom trying practices you have been taught that directly support the issues you are working with. All set in the beautiful Forest and surrounded by wild and inspiring nature which I encourage you to spend time in to give nourishment to the relationship.

". . . I just wanted to say how amazing the experience was . . . it was soul opening. . .   We now treat each other with respect, trust, and compassion which was completely deteriorated and lost over the years. . . . It was all the time somehow still intact and we are so grateful to you for making this happen. Thank you so much for your gift.. . " (couples intensive)

Staying at EarthHeart during your retreat is a key component of the work.

You have the grounds and forest to relax in or takes walks into. You can either bring your own food with you and cook in the kitchen in your apartment or you can eat out if you prefer.
