How Do I Know if a Counseling Retreat is Right For Me?

A Counseling Retreat might be for you if:

  • You are, or have been, in therapy, but frustrated because you aren’t getting to your CORE issues.
  • You normally consider yourself to be a high-functioning individual, but something in your life has you knocked off your emotional feet, you’re scrambling – and you want to deal with it right away.
  • You need more time than one hour of therapy a week to delve into painful, emotional material.
  • You have the time and financial resources to have three or four consecutive days, one-on-one, with a highly-trained, senior-level psychologist.
  • You want intensive, high quality couples therapy to identify and repair whatever painful ruptures that are harming your relationship.

A Counseling Retreat might NOT be for you if:

  • You don’t feel ready (or willing) to deeply explore your life experiences and experience the emotional discomfort that might accompany this journey.
  • You are unsure about whether you want to fully open up and engage in the therapy process.
  • You are in a degree of emotional crisis where you don’t feel safe or stable enough to manage unsupervised time after therapy ends for the day.
  • The extended time and financial fees required for a counseling retreat would cause you an undue level of burden and stress.
  • If you want couples therapy, but there is active violence, drug, or alcohol use in the relationship.

      What’s included in the price?

      Included: Snacks, beverages, and lunch.
      Not included: Airfare, hotel or transportation.

      What is the follow up after a counseling retreat?

      We offer follow-up tele-health sessions after your counseling retreat, but due to inter-state licensing laws and time constraints, we can not take clients on as regular, weekly clients.

      This is why we recommend that you have a primary therapist if you will benefit from on-going therapeutic work after your retreat. Some of our retreat clients return for half-or full-day “tune-up” sessions if wanted or needed.

      If you do have a primary therapist, we provide professional consults before and after your counseling retreat, to create a seamless transition – in and out of the retreat – for both you and your therapist.

      I have never been in therapy before. Can I still attend a counseling retreat?

      Yes. While most of our clients either have had, or are in therapy. We love working with clients who are new to the whole therapy experience. A counseling retreat is an immersive therapy experience. It works best for those who are able and willing to be reflective and curious about their feelings, thoughts, and memories. For many of our clients who haven’t had therapy before, they tell us they love getting started this way, and they do great – they don’t know therapy any other way!

      Is a Syrona Counseling Retreat just another form of talk therapy?

      No. Most people attend a counseling retreat so they can move beyond talk therapy. Most of our clients need help to shift the automatic and dysregulated aspects of their emotional functioning into a more functional and regulated state. So while all counseling retreats include a mixture of education and some talk therapy, the experimental work is focused on both “top-down and body-up” techniques and approaches.

      What happens in a Syrona Counseling Retreat?

      Your counseling retreat starts before you arrive with a personal, pre-retreat consultation. Here we go over the results of your online mindset and life timeline questionnaires. Based on our discussion of your results, we work together to create a plan for your 3-or 4-day retreat. We identify what your core issues are, what you want to change, and discuss the most effective therapy intervention options.

      As trauma-informed therapists, we are trained in the current, state-of-the-art, cognitive-, emotional-, and body-based therapies. What we specifically do, and why, depends on what is needed to meet your therapy goals.

      Since you don’t take insurance, can I bill my insurance out-of-network?

      You are welcome to submit the invoice for reimbursement but in our experience, very few insurance companies will reimburse more than one hour of psychotherapy a day. Some of our clients have had success receiving partial reimbursement by working with a case manager, but in general, we tell our clients that the Syrona Counseling Retreats are not a covered service at this time.

      Many successful people and couples struggle to overcome their issues because they feel they should be able to do it alone. That’s why we created counseling retreats to get months of therapy in less than a week. This way you get the help you need, learn the skills to prevail and get back to living a healthy successful life.
