      • 2 Night’s accommodation and cooked breakfasts for one couple,
        at either Shelton-Lea or the Palais Royale. You can choose either the night before your first day, or the night after your second day, plus the night between your counselling sessions
      • 2 days intensive counselling at my private clinic plus your own workbook
      • A follow up video session

Other Options

  1. You book and pay for your own accommodation at any one of the beautiful Airbnb cottages or cabins available in the Blue Mountains (between Glenbrook and Lithgow), and I come to you!


    You can completely relax in your own private space and I bring everything we need, to complete the workshop in your living area. This option allows you to choose a romantic retreat with more control over the area that you stay, and less travel time for those of you travelling from out of state.

    The fee for this option is $1800 for the 2-day workshop or $900 for the 1-day workshop.
  1. You book your own accommodation wherever you wish and pay for the workshop only, which takes place at my private clinic in Katoomba.

    The fee for this option is $1670 for the 2-day workshop and $850 for the 1-day workshop.

The Blue Mountains is a popular visitor destination and finding accommodation during some periods of the year may be difficult at short notice. I particularly recommend that if you are considering a workshop in June or July, that you book this well in advance. Have a look here for details of some of the festivals and other events in the Blue Mountains.

Please Note:

  1. Your Relationship Rescue workshops are NOT confirmed until the deposit has been made.
  2. Except in exceptional circumstances, your deposit is non-refundable, if you cancel your Relationship Rescue workshop.
  3. All prices include GST

Carole does not take sides and her ability to provide perspective based on her wealth of experience was very helpful.

The exercises were very practical and really helped us to understand where we fail to communicate effectively or assume too much.

The conflict resolution list is very useful and anyone who masters this will experience a lot more peace in their relationship.

Thank you Carole.

It is early in the process but we both have optimism about our future together and our progress so far has been substantial.

Thanks Carole.

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.

Your workshop was great for us and was what we needed to make a fresh start and turn our relationship around.

We'd recommend your workshop to any couple who are in trouble and want to rekindle their love!

Thanks again Carole

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

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

Don’t let 2018 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.
