Work with Terry

Terry Real is an internationally recognized family therapist, speaker, and best-selling author committed to helping you build the lasting, loving relationship you deserve.

Private Therapy Sessions With Terry

Due to overwhelming demand, Terry’s clinical practice is full and he is no longer accepting new clients at this moment. In addition, he is working to reduce his clinical hours to make more space for teaching, speaking and writing.

Other Ways to Work With Terry

We appreciate Terry’s waitlist is long, and we don’t want you to have to wait to get the support you need. So, we encourage you to explore other avenues of working with Terry and the RLT therapists he has trained:

Online Courses

We have several online courses designed to equip individuals and couples with the relational skills Terry teaches his clients for healthier relationships.

We recommend exploring Staying in Love: The Art of Fierce Intimacy first.

If you prefer to read a book, rather than taking a course, please do explore my book page

Couples Experiential

Roughly once a quarter, Terry runs a two-day online workshop with five couples where each couple receives one session with Terry, which lasts up to 2 hours. This is conducted in a group setting, recorded, and observed by mental health professionals training in Terry’s RLT method (bound by strict confidentiality guidelines). If you’re interested in registering as one of the couples, please get in touch with Lisa ( and she will talk you through what to expect and answer any questions.
