Rekindle the Love

Intensive Workshops for Relationship Rescue and Crisis Intervention

middle aged couple smiling together

• Does your relationship need crisis intervention?
• Have you lost some of the passion and commitment to your partner?
• Have you forgotten how to communicate effectively and respectfully?
• Are you ready to attend a private couple’s retreat either in the peaceful Central Tablelands town of Oberon, or in the world-famous Blue Mountains?

‘Rekindle the Love’ is the original couple’s counselling workshop/retreat. It was established in 2013, by myself Carole Kelly, with a focus on Relationship Rescues through intensive couple’s counselling, including blended families and LGBTIQ relationships. I am an experienced psychotherapist with a master’s degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy and have been working with couples for over 15 years. Read here for more details about my background. Couples travel from all over Australia and overseas to complete my intensive workshops.

‘Rekindle the Love’ 2-day private workshops are just for the two of you, and can be booked for either a weekend, or a Monday/Tuesday.

Because I understand that it is not always possible for clients who are in a relationship crisis to find time to attend a 2-day workshop/retreat, I also offer a 1-day workshop and a 3-day interactive video workshop which can be booked for any days of the week. 

The 1-day face-to-face workshop focuses on crisis intervention. ‘Relationship in Crisis’ is the starting point for a relationship that has been torn apart, to make the decision as to ‘where to from here’. Read about the Crisis workshop here.

The interactive video workshop, ‘Living, Loving and Surviving in Lockdown, has been developed by me for couples during the Covid 19 situation. Read about it here.

Booking my Workshops

To make this decision as easy as possible for you both, I offer two booking options for the face-to-face workshop / retreats:

You book your own accommodation wherever you wish, and pay for the workshop only, which takes place at my private clinic in the historic town of Oberon in the Central Tablelands.

Oberon is easily accessed from many major centres and is close to the beautiful Blue Mountains and the famous Jenolan Caves.

This option is available for both the 1 and 2-day workshops.

You book and pay for your own accommodation at any one of the beautiful Airbnb cottages or cabins available in the Blue Mountains (between Mt Victoria and Wentworth Falls), and I come to you!

You can relax in your own private space and I bring everything we need, to complete the workshop in your living area.

This option allows you approximately 1 hour less travel time if you are coming from Sydney, and is also available for both the 1 and 2-day workshops.

To help you understand some of the issues that you may be facing in your relationship, here is a short Relationship quiz.

After completing it, you will be given the option to contact me to discuss the results, free and without any obligation.

You will also have the opportunity to share your results with your partner.

How will 'Rekindle the Love' help us?

If you want to renew your love for your partner, repair a failing relationship or make a major relationship decision, my intensive and private one or two-day couple’s rescue retreat will provide you with the tools to:

  • Improve communication on all levels, including verbal, physical and emotional
  • Understand why you and your partner don’t process or communicate in the same way
  • Learn how to let go hurts and betrayals from the past and move into a deeper and closer relationship
  • Gain new insights about yourselves
  • Bring back fun and romance into your lives
  • Work through conflict and frustration to come closer together, not further apart
  • Deepen emotional and sexual intimacy, and harmony
  • Learn how to express your own needs more clearly
  • Create your personal blueprint for a lasting and successful relationship
  • Rekindle your love and passion for each other

You and your partner can escape the responsibilities of every-day life for one or two days, and just focus on your relationship. By leaving behind family and work pressures, and the time constraints involved in traditional weekly counselling sessions, you will be free to rediscover yourselves as partners and to remember why you originally made the choice to be a couple.

At the end of the workshop you will leave with a written personal contract, made between you both.

Focus just on your relationship,
no other obligations or priorities!

Why should I choose an intensive workshop over weekly sessions?

Traditional couple’s counselling takes place for an hour every week, or even less frequently, because of the difficulties in organising two busy people to fit in time during working hours, and it often fails to be effective.

It takes time for each person to tell their story and for the therapist to mediate and validate. Often the individuals don’t even discuss the insights raised, from one session to the next, because they step out straight back into ‘real life’.

This is incredibly frustrating not only for the clients but the therapist too, and in 2013 when I conceptualised ‘Rekindle the Love‘ it was important to me that couples had the opportunity to spend quality counselling time in an intensive workshop and retreat, to allow the time to explore all issues at the depth they required.

What do 'Rekindle the Love' and
'Relationship in Crisis' workshops offer?

  • These are intensive private workshops
  • They are just for the two of you; you don’t share time with other couples
  • Workshops are available 51 weeks of the year (that’s every week except Xmas week)
  • Sessions are individually structured, as are the modalities used, to allow you to meet and exceed your goals
  • You will receive workshop materials during your course

Don’t leave it too late!

If your relationship is already in crisis, don’t wait to find help….

You may have already considered having a romantic weekend away, to try and look at your problems in a more relaxed environment. My ‘Rekindle the Love’ 2-day workshop / retreat offers you both a chance to have that romantic break, as well as intensive professional counselling. Alternatively consider the ‘Relationship in Crisis’ 1-day workshop or interactive 3-day video workshop if you need help more urgently.

I am ready and eager to be your guide, relationship coach, and therapist during this journey.

Talk to me (0407 009 050) in confidence and without obligation, to answer all your queries, or please email me via the contact form. If you would like to book a free and no obligation 15-minute online video conference session with yourself and your partner, to discuss any of your issues, this can also be requested on the contact form, and I will be in touch with you within 24 hours.

There are no guaranteed results in couple counselling, but whatever’s the result, you can be sure that you gave this relationship your best attempt to repair, rekindle and renew.

We are going real well, probably better than we ever expected.

I personally thank you for making such a difference to my life and I know (S) feels the same.

Don’t let this year end in Divorce

January is the month that most divorce applications are filed. Many unhappy couples stay together over Xmas to avoid disrupting families or because holiday plans have been made.

Do you still see your partner through ‘rose tinted glasses’?

If the answer is ‘Yes’, then you have a greater chance of staying together.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt, has advised that “ALL allied health businesses nationally can continue working and are encouraged to do”. He has encouraged providers to continue vital face-to-face services where possible.

These are challenging times for everyone, but your personal and relationship issues continue to need assistance. My practice is still open for hypnotherapy and individual or relationship counselling, including Rekindle the Love workshops.

However, face-to-face sessions are available only for local residents, at this time.

If you are sick or have come into contact with the Coronavirus at any point, and/or if you have recently been overseas, please stay at home and contact me on 0407 009 050 to reschedule your appointment.

The safety of my clients and wider community is of utmost importance to me, and my home-based clinic is fully compliant with the new social distancing rules and hygiene practices. I have ensured that appointments are staggered so that you and your partner, where appropriate, are the only clients visiting my practice, at any one time.

Video sessions are available for both individuals and couples, I have prepared a program for couples to complete a Rekindle the Love workshop, online. Read about the ‘Living, Loving & Surviving in Lockdown’ online workshop here.

Please contact me for more information.

Coronavirus and social isolation will add to existing pressure points on relationships, so don’t let your marriage become a coronavirus casualty.

Read the article by Hayley Gleeson of the ABC “How to stay married through Coronavirus“.

I thank you for your continued support in these uncertain times and know that together we will get through this.
