Frequently Asked Questions 

How many sessions will my partner and I have to come to for this program?  Most couples finish this program in 6 to 8 sessions.  Sometimes couples need extra support around a topic covered or other concerns come up for the couple as a result of going through this program.  When this happens some couples will choose to schedule extra sessions.
