CARES:  A Couples Group Program

A One-of-a-Kind Opportunity @ Thrive Clinic, Mullumbimby


Need a relationship boost? Sometimes the change we are looking for comes about when we are working through our experiences together.  Sharing space with other couples may seem daunting, but in fact disperses the feelings of aloneness in our relationship struggles.  Together, we unify our relationship experiences, and create opportunity for positive change.

CARES is an exclusive, small group experience just for couples.  Each week, CARES will weave theory, experiential process, sharing and celebration.   It is the only group of its type in Australia and is led by international educator and leading Couples Therapists Sean Tonnet.  

CARES is an acronym for Communication, Attachment, Relationship meaning, Emotions & Sexuality.  The group is a 5 x Week Program, shared with 5 x Couples, covering the 5 x CARE themes of functional relationships. 

Communication ~ understanding your communication styles and practice healthier and effective communication strategies with your partner

Attachment ~ explore underlying attachment patterns that drive most adult relationship dynamics.  Build more relationship understanding and minimise conflict

Relationship Meaning ~ recalibrate and refresh the shared meaning of relationship.  This is an important guide for letting go of the past and building for the future.

Emotions ~ build more emotional intelligence in relationships,  one of the most sort after requests from partners.  Recognise the role emotions play in connection.

Sexuality:  A delicate and confidential inquiry into sexual intimacy in relationships.  Creating opportunity for discovery, playfulness and understanding.  Clothes on of course.

When: Saturday 9am – Sunday 4pm 
Where: Thrive Clinic in the Coolamon (Group) Room -138 Dalley Street, Mullumbimby
