Relationship Institute Australasia is the lead agency in Australia in Gottman training and therapist certification for professionals - and the leading organisation that offers relationship therapy to couples all around Australia and indeed many countries around the world.
Relationship Institute Australasia is the brainchild of Trish Purnell-Webb and John Flanagan.
They first met in 2005 when asked to co-facilitate a lifestyle management program with a group of Vietnam veterans. During the program, they discovered that they shared an interest in helping people live more satisfying, fulfilled and enjoyable lives.
Over several years of working together and refining their thinking and knowledge about what works and what doesn’t work in helping couples, they conceived the idea of Relationship Institute Australasia.
Our guiding principle
The guiding principle, is to utilise sound, evidenced-based approaches to help people build, repair and rejuvenate strong, sustainable relationships. Trish and John are also committed to developing and training relationship therapists across Australia, NZ, and Asia.
Together, they have more than 60 years of career experience in the fields of community engagement, organisational development, group process, clinical practice, relationship counselling, life coaching and professional training.Find out how we can help
