For some couples, a weekly meeting with a marriage counselor is not a fast enough solution to fix their relationship problems.
Whatever your situation, if your relationship or marriage is in trouble and you need a professional to personally hold your hand and guide you both out of your relationship troubles and towards happiness fast, a private house call is for you.
A private house call is a 2 day in-person marriage counseling intensive where I facilitate you and your partner connecting, communicating, healing past hurts and getting back on the same team again.
Mostly they happen over a weekend, but can also be scheduled during the week.
Both days, we’ll get together from 9 am to 9 pm and I’ll guide you through my proven marriage repair curriculum.
By the end of our two days together, you’ll feel safe with each other, closely connected and full of renewed excitement about your future together.
Because even the best marriages inevitably go through rough patches, you’ll leave equipped with the tools you need to navigate difficult times in the future.
The base price is $7000.
If you come to me in the Dominican Republic, you also pay for your travel expenses (you’ll fly to POP airport), accommodation (for as long as you choose to stay) and anything else.
I’ll help you reserve a beautiful hotel room on the beach and organize your airport transfer.
If I come to you, you also pay my travel, 3 nights accommodation in a nearby hotel and my meals.
You shouldn’t just trust me blindly.
If you’re not already 100% convinced that I’m the guy you want in your corner, go try out my free material in your marriage first.
Then, let the results speak for themselves. In the end, your results are the only reason you should consider me as your marriage counselor.
On our initial call, I’ll answer any remaining questions you have so that you feel 100% comfortable about moving forward with me.
Private House Calls are by application only. That’s because I want to be sure that I’m a great fit for you before we commit to working together.
Once you’ve filled in the application form below, my team will contact you to arrange a no-obligation initial call with me.
During our initial call, I’ll give you an outline of what we are going to do to get you both back on the same page and falling in love again. Then, you can ask me any questions you may still have.
Once you’re ready to get started, we’ll talk about dates, get payment handled, and we’re all set.
Bruce has built a reputation as the guy marriage counselors refer their toughest clients to, to help fix their troubled marriages.
He has more than 20 years of coaching experience and has been called “The Couples Whisperer” (although he says he rarely whispers).
Direct experience working with hundreds of couples each year has confirmed his belief that even “hopeless case” marriages can be repaired.
His TEDx talk has more than 2 million views and he has been featured on the BBC and Financial Times to name a few.
Over the years, I’ve become very good at helping a couple identify the root cause of their issues – the first domino piece that knocks over all the other dominoes.
Instead of working through each issue between you and your partner, we’ll discover the first domino and knock that one over. Once that domino falls, the most of the issues stemming from that issue get resolved at the same time.
That’s how we can make so much progress in such a short amount of time.
Most likely, yes. Ultimately, it will depend on my schedule.
If you live far from the USA and want me to fly to you for marriage counseling, apply anyway and we’ll discuss the logistics on our initial call.
Good question… Here’s a simplified summary of the main differences.
Conventional marriage therapy treats pathologies. The marriage therapist usually assumes that their patients have personal issues that need fixing. The assumption is that once each person is ‘fixed’, they will be able to come together and have a successful relationship. Not surprisingly, conventional marriage therapy has a higher failure rate than success rate.
Marriage counseling tends to offer advice, rather than therapy. Most counselors have had some level of training, sometimes from a church, religious institution or government organization.
Marriage coaching provides accountability, tools, and feedback to the couple about how their behavior affects the other person. It is the newest of the three. Anyone can call themselves a marriage coach without having received any formal training.
I’m not a therapist. I’m not a marriage counselor. I’m not a coach. I sometimes refer to myself as a marriage counselor or coach because the couples I work with understand what that means.
Here’s how my approach differs from marriage therapy or relationship counseling:
Instead of focusing on fixing you, I focus on your marriage.
I treat your marriage as a system – a living organism made up of two people.
Like any living organism, it has basic survival needs. When these needs are not met, the relationship gets into trouble. When these needs are met, the relationship feels secure and both individuals report feeling close, safe and happy together.
So, I work to help you collaborate to meet the needs of your marriage (like parents collaborate to meet a child’s needs).
The second way that my approach is different is that I believe that most people don’t need therapy, they need education and training.
Just like you’d be dangerous on the roads if you’d never passed a driving test, so most of us are dangerous to our marriage… not intentionally, but because we never received education and training in how to ‘drive’ our relationship.
Unlike many therapists who get their degree and never study again, I live, breathe and eat marriage research. It’s my passion.
So, if we work together, I’ll end up teaching you some truly life-altering distinctions, tools, and strategies for repairing your marriage problems. Everything you’ll learn is grounded in scientifically proven principles.
This way, once we say goodbye, you won’t need me again because you’ll be able to steer your relationship away from danger yourself.
The final way my approach is different is that I focus on connection first and communication second.
Conventional wisdom says that if you can communicate effectively, you’ll feel connected. But my experience shows that if you give a couple communication skills before they are connected, they just have better tools to fight with. Not a good idea.
So, I focus on getting a couple connected first. In my opinion, this is the biggest reason for my success rate. It’s also why marriage counselors and relationship therapists send their toughest clients to me.
No, not unless I’m traveling to you and you live more than a 12-hour flight from wherever I am located. In that case, I charge an additional $500 per travel day and may require an extra night in a hotel to recover from traveling before we begin our private couples retreat together.
We can figure all the details out on our initial call.
