Getting The Love You Want
A weekend workshop for couples

We realise there are a lot of concerns about Covid19 and we can respect that events with large numbers have been cancelled or postponed. At this point, our workshops are scheduled to go ahead as planned.

We ask that registrants assess their own potential exposure whether through contact with family/friends/associates who have travelled, or through community-related exposure.  We will honour cancelled registrations at a later workshop should you need to cancel or postpone at last minute.  We will not charge any cancellation or postponement fee for moving registration to a later workshop date.

Please keep in mind the need to cancel if either of you are showing signs of common cold/hay fever on the day of the event, as these may cause unnecessary concern for other registrants.


The Getting the Love You Want workshop is one weekend that can add a lifetime of delight to your relationship. Based on the book Getting the Love you Want by Harville Hendrix this workshop is presented worldwide for couples who want to create healthy, committed and loving relationships. This weekend experience is often compared to three to six months of weekly couples’ therapy.  

Understand the theory behind why you chose each other as partners in a long-term committed relationship; why it is that you will inevitably trigger each other’s best and worst selves; and find out what you can do, in fact, need to do, in order to deepen your relationship!

The unique design of this workshop will benefit you if:

  • It is early in your relationship and you would like to establish a solid foundation and healthy communication patterns
  • You want to enrich and deepen an already good relationship
  • You are having difficulties in your relationship and want to resolve longstanding conflicts and learn to successfully repair your ruptures.
  • You are undecided about continuing your relationship

The workshop format includes:

  • Short lectures
  • Individual reflection and written work
  • Live demonstrations of communication skills and processes
  • Time to practice new behaviours and skills with your partner
  • Fun and nurturing activities

This workshop is designed to protect the integrity of your relationship. You work PRIVATELY with your partner in a safe, comfortable and confidential manner. While you are given opportunity to share your experience, you are never required to do so.

The goals of the workshop are:

  • To provide a conceptual understanding of committed love relationships.
  • To develop new communication skills that break destructive cycles of relating.
  • To help you successfully communicate your frustrations and desires and get your needs met.
  • To facilitate a healing process and create fun, romance, passion, and intimacy in your relationship.

This workshop is relationship education, not therapy.
