Revival Retreat – A Journey for a Flourishing Life in Your Neurodiverse Relationship!

We’re Busting Myths Ahead of the Launch of Our Brand New Coaching Programme for Neurodiverse Relationships

I’m super excited to announce the start of a collaboration with Heather Parks, Neurodiverse Family Coach and colleague in Loving Difference, called Revival Retreat. It’s a fully supported coaching programme which provides the map for a flourishing life in your neurodiverse relationship! We can’t wait!

Step 1: Reignite

Reignite is the first step and it’s available to begin anytime. Once you’ve completed Reignite, you can continue into Revive and beyond that into Shine and Flourish!

Is this for me?

In Revival Retreat, we bring together anyone in a neurodiverse relationship who wants things to change, but it feels impossible, confusing, or too hard to start. You’ll discover new perspectives and learn new tools so that you can decide your next right step.

We navigate difference together and learn from each other to create more understanding, greater awareness and new perspectives along with the steps to happier, healthier and more connected relationships.

Myth Busting Neurodiverse Relationships

Before we start, we’ve been discussing some of the biggest myths we used to believe.

One of the most difficult to overcome is the myth that BOTH partners must be fully engaged for anything to improve.

The truth is that professional support or any kind of intervention where one person is persuaded to be there and feels obliged to participate is likely to be unhelpful, it may even make things worse. Plus interventions which do not take into account differences in communication preferences, sensory differences, different ways of thinking and different life experiences can be harmful.

So, where does this leave us if we want things to change and our partner doesn’t want to engage in professional support? Are we stuck? Do we just have to accept things as they are? Is leaving the only option?


We were facing this exact same situation in 2014.. and we discovered a whole other way!

Why should I do all the work, I hear you ask?

Because you want things to change. Because you want to be happier, healthier and have closer relationships! And you can do this without involving your partner and/or your children.

Things WILL change because YOU change.

And this isn’t about you changing more to accommodate others. It’s about reversing the impact of what’s been going on.

Still not sure? Jump into Reignite and we’ll show you how! We’ve lived this journey and we’re still living it every day. We’ve found ways to recover, grow, thrive and flourish in our neurodiverse relationships and families.

Myth #1

Surviving or just liking my neurodiverse relationship is the best I can hope for.

No! The impact of unknown neurodiversity in my relationships is reversible and I can thrive…and flourish!

Myth #2

Happy Relationship = Happy Me

No! Happy Me = Happy Relationship

Myth #3

Neurodiversity is to blame and my partner needs to change.

No! We’re both playing a part and I can change the relationship by working on me.

Myth #4

You make me feel…

No! I decide how I feel.
