Immersive and Bespoke Relationship Marathons

From 2024, Dr Christopher Fox will be offering immersive and bespoke relationship therapy programs.  Also called immersive bespoke relationship marathons as one can last from one day to three days.  It can be office-based or location-based: Imagine going to the Whitsundays, Far North Queensland, Daylesford, or even Bali for three days of intensive relationship therapy!

Immersive therapy or bespoke marathons offer an opportunity for partners to work intensively on improving their relationships.  Each marathon is tailored to the relationship’s goals.  An immersive marathon includes an assessment, a planning session (90 minutes), the marathon (one day to three days), and two follow-up, relapse prevention sessions (60 minutes each) at three weeks and six weeks after the marathon.   

Before we meet for the planning, each relationship (couple or partners) will complete an online assessment covering aspects of communication, conflict management, relationship satisfaction and happiness, as well as goals and aspirations.  These results are used in guiding the planning session and setting the goals for the immersive relationship marathon.  An important and unique aspect of the immersive relationship marathon with Dr Christopher is the inclusion of intimacy and sexuality.    

What are the benefits of immersive and bespoke marathon therapy?

  • Scaffold and build lasting connections in your relationship,
  • Build resilience and strengthen your relationship,
  • Develop improved communication skills,
  • Identify new ways to manage conflict,
  • Create shared meaning and goals, and
  • Develop a toolbox for strategies for better intimacy and spicy sensual connections.

What does a typical relationship marathon look like?

The content for each marathon will be different as determined by the partners in the relationship.  A three-day (3.5) day relationship marathon includes 18 hours of relationship enhancement work and therapy.  A typical program will look like the following:

Day 0: Day 0: Arrival (late afternoon), Dinner, Welcome Session: 730pm – 930pm

Day 1 and Day 2: 

Day 1 and Day 2: Breakfast, Session one: 9:30am – 11:30pm, Break for skills practice + Lunch: 11:30am – 2:30pm, Session two: 2:30pm – 4:30pm, Break for skills practice + Dinner: 4:30pm – 7:30pm, Session three: 7:30pm – 9:00pm

Day 3

Day 3: Breakfast, Session one: 930am – 1200pm, Break for skills practice + Lunch: 1130am – 200pm, Session two: 200pm – 400pm, Departure: 4:00pm

What is the cost?

This is what everyone wants to know. Each day immersive is $1800.00. So a three-day retreat is $5,400.00. This includes assessment, planning and the two follow-up sessions. If booking a two or three-day retreat you also receive the welcome session on the evening before for free. Many people want to talk about investment and return on investment. Simply put, your relationship is worth it.

Please note:  Marathons outside Victoria may incur additional travel and accommodation costs.

Who is suitable for an immersive relationship marathon?
