Cracked me Open!...

“The work I did with Barry has been amazing. I have done a lot of “self-work” in my life and for a long time and working with Barry was like nothing I have ever done before.

The work I have done in the past only scratched the surface, where working with Barry cracked me open to a whole different place allowing me to see the truth about who I am. Cracking me open has allowed me to truly deal with and see my issues as they are and not what I thought they were. I want to thank Barry and his work for keeping me on the path of truth.”

Personal Counseling Retreat Structure

Barry will help you identify any hidden and unhealed Developmental Traumas that are limiting you ability to be intimate in your personal relationships. These traumas also interfere with your success in your professional relationships. At a Personal Counseling Retreat you will learn where this Developmental Trauma is anchored in your past relationships. Then you will learn why it is causing you problems in present time.  Finally, you will learn how to fix it.

Typical Personal Counseling Retreat Activities:

  • Review your written intake forms containing extensive family-of-origin history to help you pinpoint core issues to work on at the Retreat.
  • Review of your self-awareness inventories to help build a work plan for the Retreat.
  • Utilize various experiential methods to help you identify and change any past traumas that are causing intractable present-time conflicts in your relationships.
  • Help you identify and change any dysfunctional patterns in your current relationships.
  • Discuss with you your personal style of conflict resolution and suggest ways you can improve your skills.
  • Direct experiential processes designed to achieve “completion with each parent” necessary to break free of twisted beliefs and old family relationship patterns.
  • Create a Follow-up Plan that describes your goals and activities for integrating your Retreat experiences into your close relationships and your workplace.

A Typical Daily Personal Counseling Retreat Schedule involves 6 to 8 hours of one-on-one contact:

  • Morning session: 3-4 hours
  • Lunch break 2 hours
  • Afternoon session: 3-4 hours

At the beginning of each Personal Counseling Retreat, Barry discusses the schedule and cooperatively plans both the activities and the meeting times to meet your specific needs. You will be in charge of how the retreat is scheduled and the pace of the activities. Also, he does not schedule other professional activities during his retreats so that he can give his complete attention to meeting your needs.

A tremendous Source of Information...

“Barry taught me very simple and practical techniques to center myself when I get triggered. He is always a tremendous source of information guiding me through his own experience, helpful books or by just being there listening to me.

In itself learning to listen has been an important step for me. It brings compassion for the other but also for yourself and the world surrounding you. It is a long journey to become self-conscious, to be in the “here and now” and I am glad to have met Barry and Janae on the road.”

Reconnected with Myself...

“God smiles when you be you” says the old adage. My retreat with Barry and Janae helped me do just that: reconnect with myself.

The setting was enchanting, the Smoky and Blue Ridge mountains as a background, the stillness of trees and sounds of nature to help you be fully present.

Working with Barry felt like one of these touch points you reach in life when you meet someone special, who cares and helps you get closer to where you need to be. His techniques are a mixture of traditional approaches and very personal additions developed over years of experience.

Barry and Janae complement themselves perfectly and made me feel in a safe container where I could really let go and learn. Wisdom transpires in their presence and they can be the raw model you never had or simply the presence you need to challenge yourself.”
