Private sessions for Couples
3 hour sessions at Sky Meadow Retreat in Vermont
You will learn and practice together how to:
• express feelings and needs without blame
• hear your partner without judgment
• make decisions together that include both of your needs
• establish healthy boundaries
• care for yourself, while caring about your partner
• increase intimacy while maintaining independence
The focus of this work is on how you communicate with each other when emotions are charged, one of you has a need, or you have to make a decision together. Instead of dwelling on your individual stories or focusing on the past, you will learn to express what you are feeling and needing now in an honest way that does not blame your partner. And you will learn to listen to your partner with empathy while allowing them to be responsible for their own feelings and needs.
Sessions are facilitated by Miles here at Sky Meadow in Northeast Vermont. You can schedule a session as part of a private couples retreat and stay here, or come just for the session. You may also choose to stay somewhere locally. Closest towns with lodging include: Hardwick, Greensboro, Craftsbury, Morrisville, Montpelier, and Stowe, Vermont.
Miles is available weekdays and some weekends for sessions from 9-12 or 2-5. 802-533-2505 - email@example.com
Once you have met with
Miles in person, you can set up future private sessions
from your home using Skype @ $90/hour
Miles Sherts is a professional mediator who has worked with families and couples since 1990. He spent ten years working as a divorce mediator in private practice in coordination with the Vermont Family Court, and then decided to use his experience to help couples stay together instead of split apart. His goal is to help couples become aware of repeating patterns that damage trust and increase distance, and teach basic skills that can interrupt these patterns and create an opening for change.
