Australia’s Couples Weekend Retreat Therapy

Create a marriage that works. Provide comfort, passion, and a solid foundation to face the world together. Intensive couples therapy works effectively with marriages in crisis. 

Consider taking a couples counselling holiday to the Gold Coast in 2021. 

Learn how to speak directly to the unsettled soul and the restless heart. To heal the deepest betrayals and lies. Capitalise on travel restrictions to enhance your loving bond this year.

Reach deeply into your heart and speak your truth. Let me help you speak so powerfully that your words make an impact. Learn to listen so intently, that you truly understand your spouse, perhaps for the very first time. Develop a deeper, more nurturing bond in my couples therapy getaway.

Both of you with one professional. One couples therapy weekend. That's all it takes to resolve your most formidable relationship challenges. 

A weekend therapy retreat in NSW is based on John Gottman’s 40 years of research. It's private Gottman Couples Therapy with only the two of you that's designed to deliver results. Relationship counseling for lovers who have lost their way, and are ready to head home again.

Less pain 
          More passion

Do you harbour resentments? Let go of them and adopt new behaviours.  Release embittered attitudes, withholding, or bickering. 

I'll teach you how to de-escalate, calm down, and reach into the deepest parts of you. Those parts wanting only the very best for you and your family. Your truer protective nature.

Resolve disagreements 

This couples marriage retreat helps you to develop science-based skills to stop repetitive fights once and for all. Make progress on chronic disagreements.

Re-establish trust

A couples therapy weekend can heal an affair, a regrettable incident, or broken trust. Stop spying on the involved partner. Repair and learn to relax into love again.

Set attainable goals

Be clear on your relationship goals. Recognise their value and take active steps to make them happen. Work together as a team again.

"We have seen numerous therapist over the last three years and it has, by far, exceeded all of our expectations.”

A weekend of intensive therapy for couples is more than a romantic holiday.

I'll work with relationship problems such as:

  • Managing conflict
  • Enhancing intimacy
  • Strengthening friendship
  • Improving communication

We'll begin with a State of the union assessment

This unique online instrument is designed to save you time and money. It is completed privately by each of you. You'll have a comprehensive overview of your relationship and marriage health.

It’s based upon thousands of couples just like you. You'll know which issues are to be worked on before we start. It's included in the cost of the intensive couples therapy.

Couples retreat therapy sessions:

Retreats have their own pace. Your relationship assessment continues from the instrument you complete online into the therapy room on Friday evening.

What others say


My issues were my partners lies, lack of accountability.... I was done with the relationship. I thought doing the therapy would be a waste of time and money.

The change was actually dramatic.

I opened up and am allowing him to prove himself to me, which was his goal for the therapy. We now have some useful tools for connecting.

 I remembered my love for him again.

Leah Groth


Our relationship was broken. The trust was gone. We were hesitant to commit the time, money and stress of having to deal with our issues, not knowing there'd be a result.

Jack was amazing!

He really simplified everything so we could both see the core issues. Everything about Jack was positive. We always felt heard and understood by him. We are now open and honest and have hope for the future.

I'd definitely recommend him.
