Transform your relationship fast!

3 months worth of couples counselling over 3 days

This retreat will help you learn how to connect, communicate and improve trust together. Getting away into a peaceful environment allows you to connect on a deeper level and will be completely distraction-free (there is minimal phone reception, no kids, and no work to think about). Changing your environment is powerful to help you gain clarity and perspective. Over the 3 days, I will guide you to create a roadmap tailored to you and your partner specifically so that you can deepen your intimacy, love and appreciation for one another.

Yabbaloumba Retreat, Sunshine Coast Hinterland

This is the ultimate unplug and reconnect experience. You'll be staying in luxury cabins with beautiful views over the property, featuring mountain views & exclusive access to private swimming holes on Booloumba Creek.

The retreat will have 3 main components to each day

Group Discussion, Insights, Exercises and Strategy

We all come together and there will be a particular concept for example; conflict. I will discuss what it looks like e.g. how to overcome conflict. Strategies and different things you can use to get back on track.

The retreat is an exclusive experience and as such there will be a maximum of 3-4 couples total. This ensures there is plenty of time to answer all the questions or challenges you may have.

Time and Space to Implement Privately

Then you will all go with your partner to a space where you are on your own; to discuss and try out the exercise together.

Individual Guidance

 I will go to each couple and help with any roadblocks that come up and troubleshoot things with you or tweak things as needed.
