ALTERNATIVE COUPLES THERAPY FOR NEWCASTLE, LAKE MACQUARIE, & THE HUNTER

Couples Therapy for Misfits, Rebels, and Weirdos...

You've never been conventional, and your relationship isn't either.

You're not driven by social norms, you forge your own path-

but your relationship’s stuck or looping on the same old shit.

You yearn for more & dare to dream of;

* ease in negotiating household labour

* time for pleasure, rest, & play

* collaborative decision making

*shared freedoms & responsibilities

* exploration & expression of sensuality & eroticism

*a deep sense of being seen, known, and loved

 

Tara Whitewood Relationship Coach

Me too! I'm Tara Thomas, a relationship coach & couples therapist.

I'm a fellow weirdo, and have definitely never traveled a conventional path! Sometimes that's pretty sucky because it seems like I have to make ALL the mistakes before I work shit out.

I believe that couples therapy is about skills building, not person fixing~

I take an experimental approach, incorporating movement alongside curious conversations to guide couples & individuals to discover their own unique dynamics.

I've been working with individuals, couples, and pairs since 2014 because;

  • I refuse to accept the status-quo
  • I reject traditional relationship roles, and
  • I won't settle for less.

Relationship issues don't belong TO either of you, they exist BETWEEN you.

Relationship issues come from your differences in culture, lived experience, intersections in identities, and other contextual influences.

Couples therapy that only looks at the CONTENT of your relationship, without acknowledging the CONTEXT of your lives is dangerously reductive.
Suggesting relationship strategy will change your circumstancess is bullshit!

What you CAN do is get to the heart of those differences so you can choose how to navigate them together.
