Couples retreat

This retreat can deepen an already satisfactory relationship. It can be joyful to discover more and grow together.

This retreat can also be used to find a way out of negative reactivity, repeated discussions and inequality struggles; learning tools to create hope for a more balanced couple.

And this retreat can be used for any specific theme that you can encounter as a couple around fertility, money issues, grief, support through illness or exceptional care for children or parents.

This retreat is for you when…

  • you want to solve a relationship problem, like negative reactivity, repeated discussions and inequality struggles;
  • you have to deal with a specific theme in life like fertility, money issues, grief, support through illness or exceptional care for children or parents.
  • you want to discover each other more and grow together
  • you want to fall in love with each other again
  • you want to deepen your relationship and relax and enjoy (more) together

Accompanied by psychologist trained in Clinical Image Relationship Therapy. We can work on relationship problems, but also exploratory and enriching for those interested in strengthening your bond and knowledge of each other.

“We fell in love with each other all over again” – Saskia, Netherlands – 05 June 2023

My husband and I spent a week with Aleid and Doby and on the way back we said to each other: the best decision we ever made in our lives in terms of relationship. We fell in love with each other all over again. Aleid is a very skilled psychologist and yoga teacher, she can listen well and pick the right techniques to help a couple. Doby is a wonderful, lovely host and a fantastic cook. We both booked a reiki session with him and we are very excited about this too. The accommodation is clean and feels like a warm place. The surroundings are beautiful, the walking routes wonderful to discuss the day’s session. Everything was very well prepared and professional. We will definitely go back again!
