A special message to couples in crisis:

It breaks our heart to see couples suffer. Sadly, for many they don’t know who to reach out to get help. They can’t imagine the slowness of 55-minute private counseling sessions being able to help them quick enough so they lose hope. They feel their problems are different so they lose hope. They feel they are alone in their struggles so they lose hope. They feel their mate/spouse will never change, so they lose hope. You don’t have to suffer this way.  If you have severe conflicts, fight, hurt each other or use harsh words – you just can’t make any choice but the best choice for your relationship and time is short because hopelessness can destroy even the smallest of connection. Good news, is we can escalate repairing and restoring your relationship in just three days with this Couples Seminar. We can provide you hope and teach you skills on repairing, reinvigorating and re-building your relationship in a safe and respectful environment. We can teach you skills on creating a lasting relationship with love and respect deeply planted within it.

Whether you’ve had couples counseling or training’s before or this is your first experience, this 2.5-day Couples  Seminar is a must and will greatly accelerate your hope – and progress! This Couples Extensive Seminar is often described as “transformational" and "life changing". And, Counselors and Ministers who have audited and attended this training say that it is equivalent to one year of one-on-one counseling in just three powerful days!
