Couples Counselling
Relationship Revival

In Relationship Revival we work closely together to help you create the best relationship you can.​

A partnership in which you...

  • Appreciate your partner

  • Accept your differences

  • Communicate effectively

  • Handle your emotions better

  • Act with love

  • And grow and flourish together

This isn't an overnight success story. There are no hacks or magic wands.

Instead, there is courageous and honest attention to what isn't working, your desires, longings and needs, and healthy ways to move forward together.

You'll create a stronger connection, more intimacy and vitality in your relationship, more meaning, and much more satisfaction.

Because...

Your relationship shouldn't be a source of suffering in your life

You shouldn't have to live with growing frustration and resentment towards your partner.

You shouldn't have to feel like you're hitting your head against a brick wall over the same old problems.

You shouldn't have to feel disconnected and lonely in your relationship.

You shouldn't have to feel like your relationship is heading down a dead end street.

You shouldn't have to feel like you're two people simply co-existing and living separate lives under the same roof.

I want you to have the resources to repair hurts and damage, strengthen your connection, help one another feel safe, secure and supported, and champion your love.

I don't want you to have to do that alone.

I'm Tricia Karp

                                               I'm a relationship therapist. I work with people who want                                                         healthy, meaningful and satisfying relationships.

                                               I specialise in the moment you decide that your relationship                                                       needs help to thrive and you're ready and willing to do the                                                       work required, with courage and commitment.

                                               For the past 10 years I've worked with people to address their                                                   challenges and grow, heal and change. I've worked with                                                         hundreds of people in private sessions, workshops and retreats,                                                 in Australia and Bali. I've spoken to hundreds more as I've                                                       presented on stages small and large. I've also written two                                                         books, including an Amazon number one bestseller.

                                               I incorporate evidence-based therapies in my work alongside coaching tools, my own proven POWER communication method, and wisdom from Eastern traditions. As well as being a registered counsellor and accredited coach, I'm a sacred sexuality and meditation teacher.

I believe relationships are our greatest teachers and they impact on the quality of our entire lives, and the world.

I welcome people of all relationship choices, genders, sexualities, and other LGBTIQA+ people to work with me.

Here's what I know...

None of us comes into this world with an innate knowing of how to do relationships well. 

As we enter intimate relationships, we bring with us our own experiences and stories about relating that developed when we were growing up. Many of us tell ourselves we don't want to be like our mother/father/guardian in a relationship yet unconsciously repeat their same patterns - unless we consciously work to change.

We bring ideas and expectations - that are usually unrealistic - about how relationships should be. When our partner turns out not to be perfect, but human after all, we can feel disappointed and even resentful that they don't meet all our needs.

Many of us give more energy and attention to our jobs, family and household activities than our relationship, yet we expect our partnership to magically thrive anyway.

I also know that...

It's not our partner's job to complete us. No matter how much we have in common there'll be differences - and challenges.

Conflict isn't bad or wrong. In a healthy relationship couples fight, and they focus on reconnecting afterwards.

Love is a choice and an action.

With the right focus, and taking the required action, change is possible. 

In our Relationship Revival work together, you'll learn how to:

  • Understand what activates you in your relationship and how to manage that in healthy ways so you can connect more lovingly

  • Better understand your own and one another's desires and needs, and how to meet them

  • Speak to one another in ways that bring you closer together rather than pushing you apart

  • Eliminate frustrations that have come up time and again in your relationship

  • Use effective strategies to manage conflict so that it's more comfortable for both of you and achieves positive outcomes for your relationship

  • Use proven, simple strategies to grow your intimate connection

  • Revive your sexual life

Please note: Our work together is tailored to specifically suit your relationship's needs

Ready to make your relationship the best it can be? Here's how it works:

When you book your initial appointment all 8 sessions will be scheduled to secure your program.

Your investment for Relationship Revival is $1250.

 

 

 

Terms and conditions

It takes courage, commitment and work to invest in your relationship in this way. There are no quick fixes. Effective behavioural change is a necessarily slow process. What you do between our sessions together is what will make the difference in your relationship.

When you book you're committing to a minimum of eight sessions. I want you to know that eight sessions will provide you with practical tools and resources that you can continue to use for the rest of your lives.

At the end of the eight sessions we'll review our work together, and discuss whether it would be beneficial to continue working together. This varies for every couple, depending on the nature of their situation and needs.

Please note: It's essential that you feel comfortable to work with me. If, after the first session, you decide I'm not the right therapist for you, you're under no obligation to continue.

After your first session, you have the option to pay for the rest of the program up front ($1050) or for each session at least 48 hours beforehand. The initial session is $200 (75 minutes) and subsequent sessions are $150 (50 minutes).

If you need to reschedule an appointment at least 48 hours notice is required. Non-attendance and late cancellations will not be rescheduled and the full fee will be payable. 

I look forward to serving you and your relationship.
