Relationship, Parenting and Individual Programs

Relationships are essential to daily life. Yet, relationships, whether with a spouse, child, parent, ex-partner or even a work colleague, can be complicated and, at times, challenging.

They take time, thought and effort to develop, nurture and sustain. At LifeWorks, we hope to support your efforts by offering a range of programs to help strengthen the relationships that matter to you most.

LifeWorks’ Individual, Group & Couple Programs

Our relationship program topics and themes include:

  • Preparing for marriage or other committed relationships
  • Relationship enrichment
  • Parenting, step-parenting and grand parenting – children and adolescents
  • Co-parenting after separation
  • Learning to recognise your anger and developing skills to help manage strong emotions
  • Managing stress
  • Developing assertive behaviours
  • Facilitating behavioural change in men – particularly related to family violence
  • Positive relating – learning skills to reduce conflict and increase intimacy.

Our relationship programs are designed to help you connect with others, enhance your existing relationships and develop your own inner confidence. Think of our relationship programs as a way of building your emotional intelligence and acquiring a ‘toolkit’ of new skills.
