There were great real life examples given by the tutors really brought the course alive and left me feeling so much more confident.
- Are you finding communication a challenge in your relationship?
- Do you wish you would find a way to share your thoughts so your partner(s) would really listen and empathise?
- Maybe you are finding small things turn into big conflict or family life is not as peaceful as you’d like?
- Perhaps you find talking about emotions hard and want some ideas of ways to feel more comfortable with this aspect of yourself?
At the heart of all healthy relationships is the need for open, clear communication. This weekend course can help you joyfully reconnect.
About The Course
Based on the principles of couple and relationship therapy, this 2-day weekend workshop is designed to help romantic partners to learn or rediscover the skills of conscious communication. Through group learning and experiential work in your couple or relationship, you will have opportunities to tune into one another, explore the needs behind some of the challenges and look at how to shift the dynamic from conflict to connection. Participants will explore the brain science behind attraction and looks at the stages of a relationship, what keeps couples in challenge and how to change painful patterns of resentment.
Participants will leave the weekend with a toolbox of ideas to strengthen communication in your relationship and the understanding about what your and your partner(s) unmet needs might be.
The course is limited to very small numbers – a maximum 6 couples, so the learning and support can be tailored to each of you.
This deep work can support to heal and reconnect you in a gentle, non-judgemental and compassionate way.
Who Should Attend?
This course is ideal for anyone in a relationship. Whether you have been together for months, years or even decades, whether you are two partners or more, monogamous, non-monogamous, polyamorous or separated. We celebrate gender, sexual and relationship diversity and welcome all levels of experience in speaking about emotions.

Feedback from participants:
I really valued the generosity of both Cabby and Shana of sharing their knowledge and experience with the group. Thank you.
I learnt so much and was always given the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification without ever feeling I was being rushed.
