Relationship Rescue (Kew)

For ‘couples at the crossroad’ to enhance their relationship.

Falling in love is easy, but staying connected and loving in a relationship is a challenge. The truth is that relationships require work. Learning relationship skills helps couples to communicate better, manage conflict, understand differences and co-operate and collaborate as a team.

In a one-day seminar, you and your partner can develop and practise strategies to improve your relationship in a supportive group environment. Facilitated by two experienced relationship therapists, you will share and learn from each other in this course.

Relationship Rescue is for you if:

  • you and your partner argue about the same topics over and over
  • you feel angry, resentful and hurt
  • you want to improve your relationship but feel it’s too hard
  • you and your partner have considered separation or divorce.

But you want your relationship to last!

Please note, Relationship Rescue is not suitable for couples who have experienced violence in their relationship. If you have experienced violence, please call us to discuss a more suitable alternative.

“I feel I can walk away with some great techniques to use which will help my relationship grow. All counsellors were very easy to approach.”  – Prue, 35

Ideal for

Couples experiencing difficulties with conflict and communication.


A free assessment is conducted by phone.
