Love can be more, you don't have to settle for less!

Somehow, despite your best intentions, the passion you once felt for one another has faded. You find yourselves arguing a lot more and being intimate much less.

You are probably feeling frustrated and confused - why can’t two smart, well intentioned people make their relationship work?

We know what you’re going through… we have worked with hundreds of couples just like you! You love each other, but you feel like roommates or business partners, or worse – you can’t seem to stop hurting each other. You know you deserve more than this, but you don’t know how to get there.

You’re not alone in this relationship journey! Strong partnerships don’t just happen—they require tools and resources most of us weren’t given and don’t even realize we need.

No matter how hard things are, you can find your way back to love!

"I’m so grateful we took a chance (perhaps our last) to see if we could make things work together. We left feeling like we had a true opportunity to start over, and in a way begin our relationship for the first time."
- Jason D., San Francisco, CA

Led by Us - Gal & Liron

We know what you’re going through, and we want to help.

Hi, my name is Gal. My wife - Liron - and I have gone through our own relationship challenges throughout the years. We are a married couple, parents, and successful business partners - but before all of that, we were a typical couple, struggling to get it right, and so frustrated with each other and our relationship that we broke up… twice.

But, there was so much love between us - we couldn’t just give up, so we decided to take the risk and work on our relationship together. What we learned transformed us and inspired both of us to become psychotherapists, ultimately leading us to create The Couples Center.

We are passionate (some might say obsessed) about personal growth and we have learned that working on relationship challenges has provided a path for a richer and more fulfilling life. We know the same is possible for you. Together, with our team, we have worked with over a thousand couples.

We have created a comprehensive vision for love and relationships and developed our own process and tools, and now we are sharing them directly with you!

Wow. Wow. Wow!

Carolina A.

Wow. Wow. Wow! My 10 year partner and I just finished this weekend retreat with Gal, Liron and Assistant Therapists. They were all amazing! What a way to put on a wokshop retreat that checks off all the boxes! We decided on this workshop because individual therapy although effective was going slow and we wanted to fastrack repair and intimacy for our relationship. Our issues ran deep so it was good to have the previous counseling so that when we got here we were in a good, open state of mind. We covered so much ground in a very effective drill-down method. And I say so much because it addressed a lot of our hang ups but in reality it's a hand full of issues that trip up every couple. They make it so simple! We definitely come home enlightened and empowered to make impactful changes at home. Thank you Gal and Liron for blessing so many people with this workshop that feels so personal and respectful of our vulnerability. Looking forward to joining your workshops in the future!

[We] both found it immensely helpful.

Natalie C.

My husband and I were worried that it would be a very touchy-feely, woo woo, share your feelings kind of thing, and we’re kind of dreading all of the prolonged eye gazing, mushy talk that we were pretty sure we would have to share in a group setting. It wasn’t like that at all. All sharing was done one on one with each other. It was very private. The only time we heard other peoples’ stories was when they chose to share them. And those times were very powerful. So if you are worried that it will be some sort of 12 step program meeting…it isn’t. Not at all! If you are on the fence about this class, or want to do couples counseling, but just can’t find the time – I highly recommend it. Both my husband and I found it immensely helpful.

[This is] definitely what all communities, societies, and cultures need.

Lily V.

First of all, my husband isn’t the type to ask or want to participate in therapy. So I was so glad they offered the 2-day weekend workshop format. I felt I could pitch the idea to him much easier than couples counseling. I called it “couples retreat” for a weekend! Then, we got there and my husband was still thinking why was he there and going through this. But the format was comfortable, inviting, and allowed for everyone to be vulnerable. He opened up! I was shocked myself. Gal and Liron’s idea of a “couples” school is definitely what all communities, societies, and cultures need.

I believe everyone can learn something from it.

L.C.

My partner and I attended this workshop/webinar (4/10/2020 - 4/12/2020). We were both unsure how this workshop can help us with our relationship. We were also not sure how the online version will work. I always thought in person activities are much better than virtual connections, so I was not sure how online relationship workshop would work for us, since it lacks of human connection. I was very wrong about that. The online version was wonderful. We felt we got extra privacy through the online method. We were able to have very private but open communications with the assistants during the exercise sessions. The assistants were able to help us through difficult conversations in the breakout rooms. Even though, we have been in a long term relationship, we were able to learn so much about each other through this short weekend workshop. At the end of the workshop, we wish the workshop did not end, we were not ready to say goodbye! Thank you again to Liron, Gal and all of the assistants. We highly recommend this workshop to everyone. I believe everyone can learn something from it.

My partner and I had a thoroughly illuminating experience...

Kimberly B.

My partner and I had a thoroughly illuminating experience being in workshop with Gal and Liron. We work with Gal 1:1 and chose to invest in this workshop to accelerate our learning and up-level our communication habits as a couple. The skills based tools and guidance we received was a tremendous benefit that will undoubtedly support our growth as a couple. Because of Covid, our workshop went virtual, and though initially skeptical, I am really glad we experienced the workshop online and would recommend it to others. The virtual program allowed for deep intimacy in the privacy of our own home, working one-on-one therapists who virtually joined us during class exercises, while also providing a meaningful connection with the other workshop participants. It honestly felt like the best of both worlds, and I am so grateful to Gal and Liron for serving as our guides in relationship.

This workshop proved to be SO much more than we expected.

Kate P.

Loved, loved, loved the 2-day Couples Workshop and Liron & Gal. Needless to say, this workshop proved to be SO much more than we expected, and it helped us tremendously. The first thing I felt when we walked into the room was relief. I don't know why, but I feel sometimes that we are the only people struggling, but it was clear that everyone was there for similar reasons. It felt more like personal counseling than being lectured. Information provided was presented in a very down to earth & practical fashion- no dramatics, thank god. We look forward to seeing this lovely couple again in the future for more techniques to help us grow together as a couple. Thank you both, and your great support counselors you had present! Loved that. Did not expect at all.

This workshop should be mandatory...

M.W.

This workshop should be mandatory for any couple regardless of their perceived state of happiness. I cannot think of a circumstance where this wouldn’t be incredibly useful for any couple interested in enriching their relationship and themselves.

For me, it was frankly transformative. The night before I was full of anxiety and nearly canceled. My partner and I argued about my state of mind. Two days later I felt like an entirely different human being. The toxins had been sucked from our relationship and we had a completely clean slate to build from again. Better still, we were both equipped, finally, with practical tools and knowledge to prevent our relationship ever getting in such a state again. I cannot over-emphasize the sheer magnitude of the transformation. My brain feels completely re-wired and I am full of optimism and joy again (and not just in the context of my relationship). It helped completely re-set my outlook on life after decades of damage caused by trauma. Trust me, these guys know what they’re doing and speak from experience.

How the 8-Week Coaching Program Works

1. Watch the weekly training videos.


Every Saturday for 8 weeks, you’ll get access to the next module which includes concise instructional videos where you will learn how to create a strong bond, deepen your connection, and really understand how to communicate with each other. Our videos are typically 3 to 10 minutes long, easy to understand, and can be watched wherever is most comfortable to you!




2. Do the weekly exercises.
 

Each module includes guided exercises and downloadable worksheets, as well as a summary that will keep you focused on what’s important. You can do the exercises on your own, or with your partner. Your overall weekly time investment is 1.5 to 2 hours long. Have an important question? Just message Gal in the dedicated Facebook group for personalized attention.



3. Attend live weekly coaching sessions for 8 weeks. 

Every Wednesday evening at 6pm PST, connect with me for a live hour and a half group coaching session in which I will answer questions and provide solutions for your specific needs - each couple will have access to a private Facebook group for check-ins! All meetings will be recorded, so you’ll get access to it - even if you can't make the meeting.

Now is the time to take the right step.

Don’t make the all too common mistakes of thinking that you can do this on your own or just hoping that with time things will somehow get better!
