Couples Group Therapy
Are you finding yourself in the same argument over and over again? Are you in a place where the bickering has been driving you nuts? Do you have thoughts about where your relationship is actually going?
We offer couples group experiences for up to 4 couples at a time. Couples meet together weekly with a therapist and life coach for 1-1/2 hours for 8 sessions to help improve their interpersonal relationships. We provide a safe and confidential space where couples work alongside each other on their relationship.
This increased support helps members to feel less alone in their relationship struggles and explore new strategies for connecting. We will examine what gets in the way of resolving problems. This will be a nonjudgmental forum to explore both partners' expectations and experiences, as well as help, develop empathy for each other while gaining a new perspective.
Weekly, Tuesday nights from 6 pm-7:30 pm. Once 3-4 couples have committed, we will notify you of the start date.
In our conference room located at 1992 Lewis Turner Blvd, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32547

The format is as follows:

The group begins with a brief "relationship check-in."
Topics will be based on your interest but typically include communication, forgiveness, sex, parenting, money, anger, emotional connection, chores, and making time for each other.
We will wrap up each group by giving appreciation to one another and sharing what you may have received from the group.
While this may seem intimidating, our hope is that you will feel the support of your peers as you deal with issues we all share.
Most importantly, we will create a safe place where you can be open and share meaningful experiences with each other.
