Effectiveness of Couples Private Sessions
"We valued the time for us, as a couple, to talk through our issues in private sessions and, with the help of our facilitators, to work toward resolution while practicing our new skills."
"The private sessions at the LIFE Marriage Retreat were perfect for us to be able to have a safe place to use the principles and skills we learned at the Retreat. As we saw how they related to our specific relationship situations, we were able to apply them and find resolution to past mistakes and resentments, and to lay out a clear path for our future."
"The very best, most productive part of this great Retreat is the private session one-on-one time. I wish traditional counseling experiences could be like this. I greatly appreciate the absence of time constraints?knowing we can work through the issue until it is fully resolved, rather than fretting because the time runs out in 50 minutes. We accomplished So Much!"
"The private sessions were truly remarkable! This was where I experienced the most 'ahh-hahh' moments and where we moved further along as a couple than we ever have before with regard to our issues and challenges. Those sessions were the highlight of the Retreat!"
"I appreciate what went into creating and delivering the Retreat. My experience was that it kept building upon itself. By the time we started our private sessions we were ready; equipped with the knowledge and tools needed, and in a "place" where we could effectively deal with the issues we had. I felt that Gerry and Margo's insights, sensitivity, and experience were truly felt in all facets of the Retreat, but most especially in the private sessions."
"A key to our success was the opportunity to put in practice the Principles and Skills during our private sessions with the Trainers. We so appreciated their openness, honesty, and willingness to support us in our growth."
"Everything taught and the coaching offered in the private sessions came from the counselor's heart. It felt easy to stay open to the exciting ideas and new way-of-being."
"The private sessions were very helpful as I received the tools I need to fulfill my dreams for my marriage and family relationships."
"I felt the thoughtful process of exploring the difficulties in my marriage was sensitive and enlightening. I'm so glad we attended the Retreat; it gives us the direction to go from here."
"The private sessions brought out so much emotion and feeling, it felt like we "got over something." It feels like we got over and resolved the issues that were troubling us. We laid our hearts on the table and it got us past some emotional blocks we were experiencing."
"(During our private sessions) I felt very humbled that I could lay everything on the line and trust that I would be safe and receive the guidance I needed."
"The one-on-one coaching was great! I particularly liked the trainer being right there to monitor and coach. Their guidance made the difference in the great progress we experienced."
"I was very excited to feel the effects of the training and private sessions taking place in my mind and in our relationship. You guys are GREAT! You have opened doors in our marriage that had been locked for a long time, and some that had never even been opened. Thank you!"
"Margo and Gerry's one-on-one work was life-changing and indispensable to our progress. They seemed to understand and identify with us and our challenges and help us see new and exciting ways forward. We are on our way to the best marriage ever!"
