It’s time to reignite your relationship and the power of a good feeling is all it takes.

Connection

is everything.

It feeds our soul. When we feel connected, we feel good and when we feel good, life becomes so much easier to handle. It’s a crazily simple formula but somewhere along the line, we’ve made it complicated and hard. 

And seeking help can sometimes be even harder. There is so much pressure placed on us, especially women, to maintain perfect relationships and to suffer alone through the difficult times. 

Reaching out for help is not a sign of personal failure. It’s actually a sign of a desire to change and grow, of humility and awareness that there is more to relationships than just survival, dependency and attachment.

Note: If you’re here right now looking at this on your own, and you’re not sure if your partner is willing or interested in coming on board, it’s important to know it’s not always necessary for both partners to work with me in order to create change, often it only takes one. Head over to my Individuals page to see how I can work with you on your own around your relationship.

The 12-Week Couples

Program

Over the course of 12 weeks, together we’ll explore how our thinking impacts our everyday experiences and relationships. I’ll help you both to look at your lives and the way you relate to one another through the lens of the understanding I teach. Working together in this way over 12 weeks allows space for your understanding to grow and develop over time, with the opportunity to address challenges and obstacles as they may occur in your life.

"Perhaps the most profound impact that Fiona has had on my life is through her work with my partner. My partner worked with Fiona’s with the intention of reconciling our relationship. Fiona’s assistance helped to facilitate a reconciliation between my partner and I, for which I am tremendously grateful. We are now so much better equipped to deal with the ups and downs and are far more resourceful when we experience problems. Fiona really helped us to save our relationship. Thank you so very much Fiona!"

- Tricia Musto

 

"Since seeing Fiona, things between my husband and I are going nicely and slowly, we are doing things differently now. We are making efforts to be kind to each other and prioritising time spent with each other, we are consciously correcting mistakes with each other, so life has become very peaceful and very calm, which is nice. We are putting our energy into creating so much goodwill that our problems become easier to talk about or cease to exist. We are having many more good feeling times than not, now; which means we are heading in the right direction. Because things have become nice between us we have fixed some issues really easily because it is becoming easy to talk to each other and we have a very clear eye on the prize, (being happy together).
Thank you Fiona – working with you has truly saved our marriage!"

The 4-Day Couples

Retreat

The Couples Retreat program is a 4-day interlude from the demands of everyday life, here on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. It’s a unique opportunity for you and your partner to come together and explore a fresh, new way of looking at and understanding your relationship and each other. 

Over the four days, I will guide you through a deepening conversation around the principles I teach, with plenty of space in between our morning and afternoon sessions to reflect and allow for this understanding to ‘land’.

These powerful one-on-one sessions are tailor-made to your own personal situation, with two sessions each beforehand to prepare and two follow-up sessions by phone or Zoom afterwards.

“My husband Rob and I first met Fiona about 5 years ago and I have to say things just get better and better. Since working with her we have both lightened up a lot, are more playful with each other and get over things so much quicker.

Understanding moods and not putting meaning on them was life changing for both of us and has meant that we are more relaxed and open with each other.

Most importantly, I’m a lot more open, and I’m feeling the familiar ‘return to source’ I felt years ago just before I first met Robert – it’s a magical feeling.

I’d recommend Fiona and her programs to any couple or anyone really who has ticked all the boxes in their life and still feels like something is missing.

People who are wanting to take their relationship with their partner, children and loved ones to a new level. Women who own or run their own businesses or are heavily invested in their careers who want to address their chronic stress levels and fatigue.
Thanks Fiona, it’s been a wild ride, and a great learning experience.

“I loved every session with Fiona and always felt a
deeper sense of calm afterwards. She was always patient, loving and very intuitive throughout the sessions.

She deepened my understanding about the way human beings truly work and with this understanding a couple of things opened up.... for one the beauty of life sparkles more brightly, there is more ease around my relationships and the everyday miracles get noticed a little more.

Also, the roller coaster of life, feels a lot smoother. There are still ups and downs, but the purpose of her work is not to eliminate the contrasts that are life itself, but more so to lessen the grip and resistance to anything
that shows up, so everything just feels a little easier. She is a gift, and I highly recommend anyone and everyone work with her - no matter what it is you need, your life will be richer for the experience of working together".

Relatable new online program

coming soon!

I’m so excited to announce that my brand new program, Relatable, is almost here. 

This is the next best thing to working with me one-on-one. Everything I have learned, experienced and implemented with my clients, from over 11 years in private practice and over 10,000 clinical hours, I have poured into this program.

Relatable is everything I wish I’d known about how relationships work, how our minds work, how we create our human experience of life. This is the fundamental life skill we all need to teach ourselves and our children, and share with our colleagues and teams.

Jump on the waitlist below and be the first to know when I’m opening the doors.

“Thank you Fiona for so many things. Thank you for allowing me to take a step back and notice and accept who I am. Thank you through your mentoring program, for giving me the space I needed to grow in my understanding of not only the 3p’s but myself. I’ve always known I’ve wanted to help people but never knew how and you have given me the guidance I needed to find my path. The courage and strength to take the plunge. You’re presence, honesty, wisdom and care every single session not only makes me feel amazing afterwards but teaches me how to be with my own clients. You’re a true example of how I’d love to influence and coach others. What more could a student ask for.”

- Rebecca D’angelo Mentee

How I work

The way I work with couples is quite different to any traditional marriage or couples counselling you may have experienced. It’s fun, it’s light and my clients actually look forward to our sessions together. It’s not about bringing the two of you together to talk about your problems and all the things you don’t like about each other, and then leaving the sessions feeling less hopeful. The simple truth is, we are all far more open and responsive to learning when we feel good. We’re more open to experiencing insight and seeing something new, which is really important in creating change.

Initially, I’ll see both you and your partner separately on an individual basis, only bringing you together as a couple when I feel you’re ready. The reason for this is that the bulk of the change you’ll see will be through the individual work we do together first.

Be prepared for any tightly-held veneers and facades to come down. Couples often tell me in the past they felt their partner was able to ‘hoodwink’ the therapist and uphold a facade of being okay, which the therapist was unable to see past. In contrast, the very nature of the understanding I share and how I work is all about looking beyond such facades, so they tend to be put aside fairly quickly. 

To help give you a better idea of my process when working with couples, here is a broad overview from our initial conversation through to the completion of our sessions together.

FL – How I Work_mind

Step 1 An initial chat

Before we decide to work together, I’ll speak to you and your partner separately by phone. This will give each of you a chance to get a sense of who I am, and for me to get an idea of where you’re at, both individually and as a couple. The way we begin working together is crucial and a big factor in how successful the work will be, so it’s important that you and your partner make the decision to work with me, together. It’s important that we are in partnership from the very beginning. People often make the mistake of not being in partnership around the decision of who they will work with. It’s important that you make this decision to work with me, together, which is why I like to speak with both of you.

Step 2 Sign up to the program

Once you and your partner decide to go ahead, you’ll sign the program agreement, payment is made and we will begin. I’ll send you a brief questionnaire to complete, along with a short audio to listen to, to help prepare you for the direction I’m going to be guiding you in.

Step 3 Individuals sessions

Here we schedule in the first of our sessions together. In these initial sessions, I will see each of you separately.  Each session will go for 1-1.5 hours and can be done via phone, Zoom or in person. I like to keep things informal so if we’re meeting in person, we might go for coffee or a walk, I’ve even taken clients paddle-boarding. By making it fun, light and impactful, people tend to learn faster and you will notice change very quickly. It’s all about how easy and effortless relationships can be.

Step 4 Couple sessions

The sessions you have together as a couple are last, and I do so for a reason. It’s important that your sessions together are positive, light and fun, and full of hope and potential. So I will only bring you together as a couple when I believe you’re ready, and not before.

Most of the work will be done through our individual sessions together. The couple work is really just the icing on the cake. It’s not the cake itself. The cake is the individual work, which we do together. Of course, this depends on the couple but there are usually nowhere near as many sessions as people think they need together.

Step 5 Supporting material

Throughout the duration of our time working together, I will send you resources and audios that might be helpful for you, however it’s important to note that I’m not here to add to your load, to burden you with a list of things to do or learn or study. My role here really is to take away, to ease the burden of the weight you’re both carrying.
