Better Relationships Workshop

Could your relationship do with a tune-up? Different wavelengths, regular conflict, just not on the same page?

Relationships require regular tuning to help couples stay connected, assist each other in understanding differences, and manage conflict while continuing to cooperate as a team.

The aim of the Better Relationships Workshop is to encourage participants to identify strengths in their relationship while fostering attitudes of respect, trust and positive partnership communications.

Over the course of four weekly sessions facilitated by an experienced family relationship practitioner, this interactive program will encourage participants to learn, develop and practise positive relationship skills in a supportive group environment.

Topics include:

  • Building trust, commitment and emotional closeness.
  • Re-discovering and focusing on the positive in your partner.
  • Understanding and managing conflict.
  • Creating shared meaning, life goals and dreams.
  • Sharing appreciation and fondness for each other.

Investing a few hours now, will support improved well-being for yourself as an individual, as part of a couple, and for the benefit of your whole family.

Best suited to:

All couples - same sex and heterosexual, long term de-facto or married, new, engaged or starting again later in life couples.

"The Better Relationships workshop truly helped my husband and I to better understand each other's needs when it comes to communication and "love language".  It has opened the door for us to be more understanding of each other and was a good reminder of how we were a couple first before we had children."   - Emma

"We needed to take some time out to focus on our relationship, and this workshop provided the opportunity to do that and focus on making some real and positive changes in the way we communicate" - Trina
