Want Help To Create the Relationships of Your Dreams?…♡

"This is a revolutionary view of relationships: rather than leaving it to find yourself, you find yourself through it - being the right partner is more important than picking the right partner."
~ Dr. Harville Hendrix


Happily Ever After DOES Happen!... 

Matt and Stephanie share about their experience of attending
the Couples Communication Workshop:

I realised I could be happy...and get what I wanted...

"What I got out of the weekend was like falling in LOVE, like for the first time. Not re-capturing the spark, but it was really like I just felt much, much closer. Absolutely amazing and I realised...I hadn't actually thought that I could be happy...that I could get what I wanted out of our relationship.... I realised that could have only ever happened in the Workshop. It's not like we read a book and say hey let's do this.....so I'm really grateful and I'm really excited about our future."

Learn How To Create Life-Long

Exceptional & Exciting Relationships!

Relationships Are Easy If You Know How!

We consider RELATIONSHIPS and learning communication ♡TOOLS and Skills as
All life is about being in relationship, whether it is with partners, children, family, friends, work colleagues, neighbours and with yourself.

It's about communicating and truly connecting.

Everyone needs to have the best up-to-date communication ♡TOOLS and Skills.
These need to be learned in much the same way as we need to learn to read.
We are not born knowing how!
And we need to regularly update these.

Many don't need therapy but EVERYONE needs Relationship Education to create the relationships and ♡LOVE and life they want.

Healthy relationships are the foundation of a healthy society.

We are in the business of teaching such ♡TOOLS and Skills
It is our privilege to be of service to you.


- have the knowledge to attract and pick 'the right partner' to make your marriage/committed relationships stay ♡LOVE-ing and alive and last a lifetime
- have the ♡TOOLS to create, build and strengthen your relationships and the SKILLS to repair and heal any relationship or parenting break-down, disconnection or conflict.
- live in a ♡LOVE-ing world where divorce and violence and family breakdown are rare


To teach the MIND-SET and provide

A Relationship and CommunicationTOOLBOX

of the best, simple, effective, and easy to put into action ♡TOOLS and SKILLS to create the ♡LOVE, relationships and life you want.


The SERVICES we offer:

  • Private Counselling/Therapy SESSIONS - either in person or online (via Skype or Facetime)
  • WORKSHOPS – usually 20 hours over a weekend
  • ♡LOVE-LIFE RETREATS: 7 -10 days

Marriages/relationships/families do heal after affairs, separations and all kinds of disconnection, break-down and conflict.

You can learn to create the true ♡LOVE you long for with the partner you already have.

THE KEY is you have TO DO something different.
You will need to be taught how, as well as repair the damage that has been done.
