Every relationship journeys to the crossroads of transformation. Perhaps your relationship or marriage is in crisis or failing. Or you don’t know how to heal after an affair. Or maybe it’s stagnant, and you long to take your relationship to a new level for the sheer pleasure and inspiration of it.

Hedy is available in Washington, DC to guide you and your partner through a private Intensive session. For more information and to schedule your session, please contact Geoffrey at 305-604-0010, or via this page about the Intensive session

Free Webinar for Therapists: “Healing from an Affair” with Hedy Schleifer
Sep 7 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Hedy Schleifer is very excited to invite you to join a free Webinar she is hosting called Healing from an Affair.” It will take place on Friday, September 7, 2018 at 1:00pm Eastern time. (Use this website to see what time that will be in your timezone.)

In the aftermath of an affair:

  • How do you assist a couple to be free of the trap of the “perpetrator/victim” roles?
  • How do you enable them to make authentic amends?
  • How do you restore and strengthen their relational bond?

To achieve these essential goals of earnest “re-pair” after a distressing rupture, the couple’s therapist must create a contradiction: a relational and emotional ambiance in which both the mutual expression and acceptance of deep regret, as well as genuine forgiveness can take place.

In this one-hour Webinar, Hedy will reveal the steps that she takes during the two-day Intensive session called “The Amends Journey,” and she will give you a Roadmap to help partners:

  • Transcend the Impasse
  • Own their individual contribution
  • Discover previously ignored aspects of each other’s inner emotional landscape
  • Create mutual understanding and new appreciation of each one’s individual struggles
  • Build a solid foundation for their renewed bond

“My dearest Hedy, The webinar was outstanding. The best I have ever listened too. You were clear, succinct and so passionate about your work with couples. I am honored to have you in my life both professionally and personally as my teacher, and my mentor. You are a Master in what you do. Your brilliance is awe-inspiring. I look forward to your next webinar.” Brenda S Faiber, MS, LMFT
