How to Choose a Marriage Retreat Centre

When looking for Marriage Retreats centers, you are sure to come across quite a number. However, there are certain expectations a reputable and effective retreat center should have. At An Affair Of The Heart, we have over 40 years of experience in solution building to help rebuild relationships’ trust, communication, and love in a matter of days. 

You know that a retreat center will be effective for your relationship by looking at their counseling methods, the qualifications of therapists, and other qualities discussed below. 

Experienced therapists

It is often a good idea to go to a retreat center known to have experienced therapists and coaches. A NYC Marriage Counseling needs experienced therapists who will study a couple’s situation and give sound guidance by drawing knowledge from their extensive experience over the years. Affair Of The Heart has been a couple’s retreat center for over 40 years. Our therapists and coaches have specialized in couples relationship work; therefore, you are guaranteed a positive and transformative experience. Visit our website today and learn more about our specialists and their qualifications. 

Counseling techniques and methodologies

Checking out the counseling methods used by the retreat center you are opting for should also be on your list. The methods should be scientifically proven to have worked for Couples Counseling Retreat before. 

At Affair Of The Heart, our techniques and methodologies are based on the Emotionally Focused Therapy informed Hold Me Tight® workshop developed by Sue Johnson, originator of EFT, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and ITT (Image Transformation Therapy). For extensive couple’s retreats, we focus on trauma resolution protocols drawn from EMDR and ImTT to assist couples going through break-out sessions. 


Standard health insurance may not be able to cover all expenses of Couples’ Marriage Retreats. The expenses should include things like meals, accommodations, and parking. Such information is very important before you finally embark on your journey. At Affair Of The Heart, we provide clear pricing that explains the terms of our retreats, including expenses. We also offer a free consultation for couples interested in asking as many questions as possible. 

Clear day-to-day agendas 

The retreat center you are opting for should be in a position to provide a clear day-to-day activity for the whole time you will spend with them. Affair Of The Heart provides a detailed hourly schedule that guides couples in what they will be experiencing while working through their retreat with us. Such schedules enable a retreat center to cover a lot more in a single day than what weekly couples therapy can provide.


It is therefore important to conduct a thorough investigation before embarking on a journey to a couples retreat center. The retreat center should be located in a safe environment, the prices should be clearly stated, the daily activities clearly outlined, therapists should be experienced, and their Counseling techniques should be effective. We offer these and more at Affair Of The Heart. Get in contact with us today for Marriage Counseling Retreats. We are more than willing to give you and your partner an extraordinary marriage retreat that will bring hope to your relationship in days.
