- Do you have a hectic schedule that does not allow you to come to therapy on a regular basis?
- Are you going through a life crisis or your relationship in great distress and you want to get some relief quickly?
If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes”, then an intensive might be best for you. Brain Health’s intensive sessions are transformational experiences. One of Brain Health’s primary values is impact, which is why Brain Health offers intensive therapy sessions to provide a major impact in a short amount of time.
Rather than the traditional one hour a week therapy session, intensive therapy is designed to provide longer and more frequent therapy sessions over a shorter time span to accelerate healing and growth. When a full week between sessions passes, the issues from the previous session often get diluted in our minds. This can make it difficult for therapy to sustain its momentum and growth.
One’s well-established defenses are difficult to penetrate in traditional once-a-week therapy, especially with traumatized individuals who are hesitant to open up or not in touch with deeper emotions. A person is more likely to lower their defenses during an intensive format.
Many clients refer to this type of therapy as “Marathon Therapy” because clients can spend anywhere from 5-15 hours over the course of a few days or week (this is dependent on the individuals issues of course)
