| Partners who feel they're at an impasse, and especially those for whom being together has become a question, can benefit greatly from our PHILO℠ Couples In Crisis program. This 60-day intensive is designed to help partners get "unstuck," to see their situation in a new light, and to move forward with clarity, resolution, and a sense of shared purpose. There is no agenda for the couple to stay together—only to make a deeply honest choice free of contradiction about their immediate and longterm future that will allow them either to begin to restore closeness and trust or, if the truth requires it, to end their partnership kindly, consciously, without resentment or recriminations, and with the least amount of wounding for all concerned.
For more than 40 years, Philip Golabuk, our founder and director, has worked with clients and students to help them achieve clearer self-definition, a deeper sense of life direction and purpose, and the joyful awareness that being alive is a wonderful deal and not just an exhausting exercise in coping with stress.
|The profound benefits of philosophical counseling are well established. Using unique methods many of which we developed, Couples in Crisis delivers proven support for everyday living designed to enlighten, inspire, and transform.
Couples in Crisis
And you can rest assured that you'll receive the highest quality support available in the field:
|The Couples In Crisis counselor helps the partners to become more self-aware, resolve individual and interpersonal conflicts and contradictions, and identify better choices and directions, and thus to see their situation in a new, more enlightened way. This invaluable service includes:
|Philosophical counseling does not follow the therapeutic model of diagnosis and treatment, but uses educational methods based on viewing the client as a free agent capable of honest self-assessment and responsible choice through insight, understanding, and greater self-awareness. Rather than treating conditions, Philosophical counseling aims to shed light on fundamental beliefs, assumptions, and paradigms that are shaping the client's view of self and world. For this reason, unlike traditional psychotherapy, it is not as a rule concerned with developmental issues, early trauma, or such psychological concepts as dysfunction, codependency, or addiction. Furthermore, since psychotherapy typically involves explorations of the client's past, often going back to childhood, it can require a lengthy commitment, sometimes lasting years. Philosophical counseling, on the other hand, focuses on the present in light of the deep existential structures of meaning, belief, and values that inform and shape our experience in the world.
Philosophical counseling is an educational rather than therapeutic method and makes no therapeutic claims.
