Two-day Private Sessions for Your Couples
Journey alongside your clients as they work intensively with Hedy, and learn in “your own private university”
If you find yourself unable to move forward in your work with a couple, and would like to take them another notch deeper, or open a new door for them, you may wish to encourage your couple to attend a two-day Intensive session with Hedy. You can be present at the session as a witness and student of Hedy's revolutionary work with couples.
"I highly recommend taking the time and the effort to witness your couple work with Hedy. She worked with a couple I had been seeing for nine years. I got to see them in a new light. I learned things about them I didn't know. Most importantly I was witness to the deepest truth of who they are individually and as a couple so I can bear witness to that truth in the future, when the light they found with each other under Hedy's guidance inevitably gets layered over by the daily grind of life. The intensive not only bonded me more deeply to the couple but the couple more deeply to me. Professionally, it is always wonderful to watch Hedy's mastery and she has some processes unique to an intensive I had not experienced before. In summary it's an opportunity to learn, an opportunity to bond with your couple, and an opportunity to expand the boundaries of your work in new and meaningful ways."Josh Gressel, Ph.D

What Esther Perel witnessed with her couple
Esther Perel, the best-selling author of “Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence,” wished for one of her couples to attend the two-day session. During the session, Esther sat behind Hedy as an observer, and silently lent her presence to the process. During lunch breaks and at the end of each day, Hedy and Esther sat for a debrief and review.
Here is what Esther said:
"For two entire days I watched Hedy work with a couple I was seeing in therapy as she artfully, generously and systematically added layer upon layer to the process we were engaged in. Being in the presence of this master therapist, I experienced the kind of deep learning that is destined to make me grow as a therapist. This is “reality” supervision, happening live, in real time, right in front of you. What can be better than having your own private university." Esther Perel, MA, LMFT (New York, NY)
Advantages of being present with your couple
Therapists from around the country and around the world, who have joined their couples in their sessions with Hedy, have shared with us four distinct advantages of being present at their couples' session:
- It is a profound training experience - revolutionary, deeply instructive, nourishing and rewarding
- The EcCT* processes that Hedy uses are clear and effective, so that you will know exactly, minute by minute, what is happening during the session
- You will receive a copy of the session report that is given to the couple, along with Hedy’s recommendation for your next steps with your couple
- You will intuitively know exactly how to continue the journey of connection with your couple, because you will have been with them every step of the way
What is Encounter-centered Couples Therapy?
At this time in her life, Hedy is experiencing the joy and gratification of being given the opportunity to transmit the combined years of experience she has in couples therapy. The integration of her work in what she calls her "laboratory for couples" has culminated into what she has called Encounter-centered Couples Therapy (EcCT). The video below is an interview where Hedy discusses EcCT:
Through this she created the 2-day intensive session. If you believe that being exposed to this experience could help your couples and your own work with your couples, get in touch with us. Hedy is primarily available in Washington, DC. However, depending on her schedule, she is sometimes available in other cities throughout the world.
