About the workshop

Come along and learn how to enhance safety and connection in your closest relationships. This is a workshop for everyone – just met, married 20yrs, struggling with conflict and difference, coping with big life changes, loss, or grief, same sex couples, parenting struggles? Everyone is welcome!

Our workshop is educational and focuses on enhancing connection. Our aim is to equip you with insights, skills and tools and whilst the benefits can be therapeutic, it is important to note this is not therapy. The two days includes lectures, written exercises, demonstrations and practicing of dialogue and communication processes.

We will learn as a group with no pressure to share private information. There is plenty of space for partners to share and practice exercises privately.

Who should attend the 'Getting the Love You Want' workshop?

  • Couples who want to enrich their relationship
  • Couples who are beginning a relationship and want to keep it
  • Couples who are in an unsatisfying relationship and want to resolve long standing difficulties (although you may need follow up counselling after the workshop)
  • Couples who are near break up or divorce and want to decide if their relationship can be saved
