Marathon Couples Therapy is a good fit for couples who do not live in the area of Dubai, for couples whose schedules do not allow them to attend weekly therapy appointments and for couples who want to get help urgently.
Couples therapy has been found to be more effective in the beginning of the therapeutic process, so an intense and focused beginning is more beneficial than evenly spaced out sessions.
Before starting Marathon Couples Therapy, you will complete an online assessment. I may also speak to both of you individually on the phone. The first day of marathon therapy is used to conduct the assessment. The remaining two days are used to focus on the areas of concern in your relationship and help you move forward.
A sample schedule of Marathon Couples Therapy looks like this:
Thursday 1 pm – 6 pm
1 pm – 2.20 pm Joint assessment
2.30 pm – 3.10 pm Individual interview 1
3.15 pm -3.55 pm Individual interview 2
4.30 pm – 5.50 pm Final joint assessment session
Friday 9 am – 2 pm
9 am – 10.20 am Session 1
10.30 am – 11.50 am Session 2
12.30 pm – 1.50 pm Session 3
Saturday 9 am – 2 pm
9 am – 10.20 am Session 4
10.30 am – 11.50 am Session 5
12.30 pm – 1.50 pm Final session
Follow-ups, whether they are face-to-face or online, can be scheduled after the marathon session, depending on your needs.
My fee for a three-day Marathon Couples Therapy is 9300 AED. The fee is payable in full at the end of the first day.
