Helping Couples Reconnect

How to put the spark back in your relationship!

How to put the spark back in your relationship!

The pressures of life and logistics, especially if you’re a parent, often get in the way of a healthy and happy relationship, leading to lost connection.

Where did that initial spark go when you fell in love?

Early commutes, work stresses, parenting, swimming lessons, dance classes, martial arts, music tuition, weekend sport and training … the list goes on!

What time is left for you and your relationship?

Usually, very little.

Sound familiar?

Poor communication leads to assumption, often with our needs not being met, which then sours our relationship. Before we know it, we’re feeling resentment or at its worst, contempt for our partner. This leads to disagreements and arguments, which are rarely about the real underlying issue.

As relationship coaches we’ve discovered that effective communication is at the core of a great relationship, which creates strong and healthy connection.

About Retune

Emotional Intimacy is where two people communicate effectively and respectfully, are open about their needs and wants, and are seen, heard and respected by each other.

Your Facilitators

Amanda Bennallack

Amanda discovered that her various journeys, from crewing boats to exotic places, sitting with monks in a monastery in Thailand, exploring Mayan ruins in Mexico, to trekking the Inca Trail in Peru, have all supported her desire to broaden her world view… as well as her taste buds!

Professionally, with 36 years in the fitness industry, Amanda became aware of her innate coaching and mentoring skills, which she called upon to bring out the best results in her team-mates and clients. This led her to studying behavioural psychology at The Coaching Institute.

In her personal life Amanda has navigated her way through relationships which have challenged her needs and desires. Failing at times, yes, however, each revealed a path to personal growth and an understanding that compromising ourselves can be our undoing, and that connection is key!

Amanda’s coaching clients often share that their relationships no longer fulfill them – “something is missing”, “It’s not working anymore.” This is really sad, when of course they came together in love and somewhere along the way, they lost connection with
each other. This has fuelled Amanda’s passion to help couples find their way back to love, being seen, being heard, and being cherished.

John Broadbent

John is the author of Man Unplugged – Exploring The Inner Man and has almost 3 decades of experience navigating his own psychology, and in more recent times, working with men as a coach and mentor. It’s John’s burning passion to help men live more fulfilling and meaningful lives.

He is also co-facilitator for The Elder’s Way and A Man’s Journey, each a week-long Bali-based retreat, focussed on helping men at different stages of their lives find deeper connection with themselves.

With more than 40 years of varied relationship experience he also knows what can make or break them, and in his coaching role often hears men sadly reminiscing of lost connections with their partners and children. Some have simply given up and choose to co-exist in a loveless convenience, which sees them missing out on the richness and fulfillment a healthy and functional relationship can bring.

It’s John’s burning passion to help men live more fulfilling and meaningful lives, which underpins his dedication to educate how to navigate the complexities of relationships with emotional ease and grace.
