Making real change is sometimes not as easy as we might hope. If other therapy attempts, medications, and other efforts to change haven't brought the desired effect, you may want to try more intensive therapy away from home. Our intensives for individuals and couples take place on the island of Gozo in Malta and your personally tailored package may be fully model-specific or include integrative aspects of:
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, including DBT skills training,
- Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy,
- Integrative Counselling,
- Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and relapse prevention for people with a history of depression.
Some issues need more intensity, and with more frequency of sessions, more intensity of work comes about. It may be difficult for the once-a-week therapy to gather the steam needed to really get at deeper-set issues or patterns of behaviour. More intensive level of work seems most appropriate for behavioural and emotion regulation difficulties, chronic relationship problems, a lack of enjoyment and involvement in life, a yearning for self-growth and renewal, and childhood problems that impact adult life. It's the best therapy approach for getting to the root of problems, and making long lasting, changes by means of evidence-based skills and methods.
We can also help you find suitable accommodation and organise other activities on the island during your stay. Please contact us to outline your needs and requirements and we'll do our best to meet them.
