About the workshop
Our workshop is educational and focuses on enhancing connection and safety. Our aim is to equip you with insights, skills and tools that you can use every day in your relationship. 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. Even if you don’t say a single word in the larger group you will still get the benefit from being alongside your partner for the weekend. There is plenty of space for partners to share & practice exercises privately. That said, working in the larger group fosters sameness and the opportunity to know we are each struggling with the similar recurring themes in relationship.
“Warm and open. Used amazing examples from their own lives to make the whole experience relatable”.
