Online Psychologists: Marathon Couples Therapy


Marathon Relationship Therapy, using the Gottman Approach to Couples therapy, is an increasingly popular treatment for couples experiencing significant relationship distress.

Marathon therapy offers an intensive alternative to traditional weekly couples therapy sessions. It is a short-term, intensive therapy process that enables couples to move through gridlocked conflict and begin to rebuild their relationship.

Extended marriage therapy sessions have the benefit of reducing couples distress, addressing specific conflict issues, and increasing connection and intimacy, leading to a stronger, more resilient and satisfying relationship. We offer both online marathon couples counselling and face to face intensive marathon relationship counselling.

Who benefits from Marathon Couples Therapy?

Marathon Therapy is fast becoming one of the most popular and successful approaches to helping couples through relationship crisis.

Intensive therapy may be beneficial if:

  • You want to get a head start on therapy

  • You are experiencing significant relationship distress

  •  You or your partner have recently discovered an affair

  • You are feeling stuck and are starting to consider ending your relationship

  • You have difficulty attending regular appointments due to work commitments or difficulties with childcare

How does Marathon Therapy work?

To begin we will complete a thorough online relationship assessment including a comprehensive online questionnaire, a couples assessment session and an individual session with each partner. The assessment process is designed to get a clear picture of your relationship including the strengths and issues you bring into therapy as well as understanding each of you as individuals. Your assessment can be completed online in the weeks leading up to your intensive couples therapy treatment.

Once your online psychologist has developed a comprehensive understanding of you and your relationship they will develop a personalised treatment plan. In most instances your online psychologist will suggest a two-day marathon. A one day marathon may be suitable for couples seeking preventative care, couples with a strong relationship that are gridlocked on a particular issue, or couples interested in preparing for a key relationship transition such as getting married or having a baby.
