“How do we know if we need a couples retreat?”
If you’re in crisis-mode or at a loss due to a marital affair and you know you want to do something to save your marriage, you can benefit from this couples retreat. It is particularly helpful if you and your spouse are having difficulty even carrying on a conversation or being in the same room. This retreat is designed for couples needed to rebuild their marriage after an affair.
“We’ve tried retreats before and they haven’t worked. How is this different?”
Other marital retreats can be rather vague and general, dealing with existential crises instead of specific problems between you and your spouse. This retreat is specifically designed to tackle the problem of infidelity.
“Is it okay to come to the retreat if we are in therapy?”
Yes. The retreat therapist will coordinate care with your current therapist.
“Can I use my insurance to cover the cost of the retreat?”
No. The Infidelity Clinic does not accept insurance. The retreat is an out-of-pocket expense and an investment for your marriage.
“What’s the point of the down time in between sessions?”
People can only be productive in therapy sessions for so long until they start to feel mentally exhausted and drained. The purpose of the down time is not just for taking a break, but to also process what you’ve learned and practice the new skills taught by your therapist.
“What really makes this retreat different from other marital retreats?”
The difference is simple. We are one of the only retreats that specialize in the problem of infidelity and provide an evidence-based treatment approach, based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Other marital retreats do not focus on a specific problem area and have more general curriculums. These are fine for couples who are not struggling with the crisis of an affair. Couples struggling with infidelity need a more tailored treatment approach.
