Our couples intensive gives you the opportunity to escape the distractions of work and children and focus on rebuilding your relationship in the aftermath of sex addiction. Based on Paula Hall's ground-breaking new book, Sex Addiction; A Guide for Couples, this weekend will gently and safely guide you through the stages of impact, meaning and moving on.  Integrating both partner trauma and addiction recovery work, the intensive provides a combination of psycho-education, experiential practice and group process. The goals of the course are to: 

  • Improve communication skills
  • Develop conflict resolution strategies
  • Build empathy 
  • Strengthen healthy recovery boundaries
  • Deepen trust and intimacy
  • Develop a couple recovery plan for moving forward

The weekend will be facilitated by two highly experienced couple psychotherapists who have many years experience working with relationships impacted by sex and porn addiction.  

The programme has been specifically designed for couples who have already engaged in individual recovery work and are post-disclosure.  If you would like more information or would like to discuss if the programme would be suitable for you, then please email us at info@thelaurelcentre.co.uk.  

"After walking two single paths of recovery we've now found, trust and commit to a third path for us both"

"The couples intensive enabled me to see past the addiction and recognise my husband for the man I married. We both agreed that the course was a positive turning point in our relationship as it helped us rediscover our compatibility. The experiential experiences were profoundly life changing.  I never thought I would hear my partner empathise as he did.We now understand what intimacy should look like and we are committed to working towards achieving it. I feared our relationship would not survive however  attending the course has shown me it can not only survive but become stronger."
