We offer impactful high quality, low cost, informative trainings! Sign up for our mailing list to receive information as we schedule 2019 classes for therapists. We focus on relationship issues and sex therapy. Our quarterly trainings are usually half-day or full-day and led by experts in the field. During the trainings, you’ll have the opportunity to meet other therapists and strengthen your community. Founder of The Couples Center, Gal Szekely, also offers additional daylong or weekend trainings in mindfulness-based somatic therapy (see below).

Assist in our Workshops

We offer transformative couples weekend retreats four times a year. We incorporate practical tools based on neuroscience, mindfulness and somatic exercises – check out some reviews about them on our Yelp Page. Licensed psychotherapists and associates have the opportunity to assist in these workshops by working directly with couples.

Due to our structured and experiential approach, you will witness and support powerful transformation that takes months to do in regular counseling. When assisting in our retreats and workshops, you’ll get our workbook full of information and exercises that you can later use with your clients. Learning these modalities will also greatly enhance your ability to work with individuals around relationship issues.

Be the First to Know When The Couples Center is Hiring!

A few times a year we hire new therapists to become part of our center. It’s a strong community of professionals that receive client referrals directly from us. The therapists maintain their own independent practice while having security that their schedules will fill up with quality clients. Our center continues to grow, and we value having therapists all over the Bay Area.
