New England Couples Retreats

Our Private marathon therapy retreats  are based on studies which demonstrate that couples therapy can be more effective and address issues more quickly when it is offered in intensive doses initially and then phased out to less frequent treatment. Its purpose is to help resolve your current crisis or a specific issue in the relationship.

Marathon Therapy can thus accommodate clients traveling from other locales who cannot attend weekly therapy sessions. It provides an intensive, condensed and highly focused approach to relationship issues that can help couples move quickly through specific issues and learn important new skills in a short period of time.

Intensive therapy and marathon therapy are terms that can be used interchangeably when describing these weekend long retreats. Some couples decide to attend an intensive retreat along with ongoing couples therapy. Others may utilize this method as the sole therapy model.

Small group retreats are designed for couples who are not in crisis but looking for a "tune-up" for their relationship, or looking for ways to enhance relationship skills.  You'll learn research-based techniques for deepening intimacy, managing conflicts, and enhancing your sense of shared meaning in a private, comfortable, and beautiful setting with no more than five other couples.

Cancellation Policy

 Given the limited number of dates and time-sensitive scheduling needs in confirming a marathon, all deposits (payment in full) are non-refundable and non-transferable when a cancellation occurs 4 weeks or less prior to a scheduled marathon. All cancellations within this period will be charged the full fee for the marathon therapy session. Additionally, your credit card will be charged for any credit card processing fees incurred by NCCT if you cancel.

 *Note ~ Due to the severe nature of New England weather, NCCT may elect to make exceptions in the event of hazardous driving conditions and weather emergencies.
