Couples Intensive Retreat Australia

Melissa Ferrari-8 updated one 9th May 2018 .jpg

You know that moment after watching a classic romantic comedy, as you sit there with a smile and this warm glow washes over you as our brains release the ‘feel good’ chemicals.

Would it not be wonderful if that feeling we have when we are happy, safe and content is with us all the time?

Now whilst we cannot promise you that such a feeling will be with you every moment of every day, what we can tell you is that you can rediscover those strong feelings of love for each other by working intensively with Melissa.

That you can ensure that you are not abandoning your relationship too soon and in doing so missing out on an opportunity of sharing time with someone you love.

Should you find that your relationship is facing a difficult time and that you and your partner have begun to question whether you should remain together then it is time to reach out to Melissa for help.

If you do reach out you will not only receive the support of one of Australia’s leading couple’s therapist, more importantly Melissa will through her intensive couple’s therapy program help you to uncover what is causing the issues in your relationship.

Kick starting your relationship, bringing back the passion, intimacy and aliveness, so you can rediscover your love for each other and live the life you have always wanted. 

This intensive therapy program is open to couples from all over Australia and will involve you and your partner undergoing 5 hours per day for 3 consecutive days of couple therapy.

For couples who commit to the program they will find long-seated resentments and problems within their relationship shifted and the the pain and conflict that has been holding you back from love, intimacy and closeness lightened.

Given the intensive nature of the sessions Melissa can only conduct a handful of these sessions per year, so positions are limited and to apply please complete this application form and we will be in touch to let you know whether you have been successful.

"Melissa is lovely, accommodating, comforting in nature and very easy to talk to and warm". - Jane and Brad, February 16th, 2018.

Do not let distance prevent you from this once in a relationship lifetime experience and you can easily combine your couple intensive therapy with a much needed romantic holiday with the gorgeous Blue Mountains only a short drive away from Melissa’s Penrith offices.
