    Penny and Reece Kennedy

    Reece and I met Nicholas 4 years ago when my husband and I were struggling with 3 businesses and 4 children under 6 years of age. 

    The breakthrough in our relationship was when we recognised that we both wanted the same thing; we were just talking different languages. What I really love about our relationship now is the open-hearted honesty we now have with each other that has really allowed us to bring the passion back into the relationship.

    We will always be grateful for helping us open our hearts and discover what a true passionate loving relationship is all about.

    Marc (and Leanne) Brabander

    Years ago, my partner and I were struggling with moving forward in life.

    The breakthrough in our relationship has been the realisation that we as individuals are complete, that we stand on our own in our relationship, there to love, support, and encourage the other through life together. What I really love about our relationship now is that it is real: open, honest, encouraging, supportive, loving. There was something that frightened me about ‘going there’ – to truly feel the feelings I’ve hid from, evaded and ignored for so long, and going with the emotions and embracing them.

    Nicholas’ and Susan approach is pure genius – creating a safe environment of love, understanding, acceptance and awareness... in doing so they provide you with a new skill-set. 

    On the Day...

    I have been to several day seminars with Nicholas. Each time I leave with a great sense of inner peace that stays with me for some time afterwards. I love myself more, I feel more creative, I have more fun and a greater sense of connection in my close relationships. I let go of worry and I get more done.

    I really love the core clearing process. It is powerful in a very gentle and organic way. If everyone in the world had it in their life - world peace would be possible.

    What couples say...


    Greg and Bernadette Holland

    With Nicholas’ and Susan's help, we now talk more freely and openly across lots of personal topics and personal issues. He has helped us resolve prickly and difficult issues – and he has done it through the phone! Our relationship is a much more loving and flowing through the help and guidance that they have given us.



    Bruce and Louise Cooper

    The biggest thing that we've learned through our work with Nicholas and Susan  (and there have been many) has been different strategies to really hear each other and how to talk about what we're feeling. That probably sounds ridiculous... but for me it's not as obvious as it sounds. I learned that I listen through filters - what I want to hear and when I do this I'm not able to really hear what Bruce is trying to say. The most important thing we have learnt is that effective communication is the key to a strong relationship and that even though we know this, it's not always easy! What I really love about our relationship now is that we love each other unconditionally and we're able to talk about anything.

    The thing I love best about Nicholas and Susan is that they are so validating. Nicholas is the only the counsellor I have seen who helps me to have experiences where I truly feel what I am feeling while giving me strategies to express these feelings without dumping all over people. I am so grateful that we have Nicholas and Susan in our lives! Louise Wigg.



    Brian and Cat Ludwig

    Nicholas and Susan, have I told you lately that I love you? Well I love you! Will I fit my gratitude into a few lines… probably not!! I thank you for all the years of work we put in together, but my words would never do my extraordinary experience with you any justice at all. I've learnt patience, self-acceptance, that I don't need to be fixed and love is really all there is.

    Brian and I are very happy together and enjoy each day of this fleeting beautiful life. You will always be part of my heart and I'm looking forward to more time together soon. All my love to you.



    Adrianna and Ed Custeau

    Before I worked with Nicholas and Susan, my relationship was only based on duty and achievements. I felt isolated and lonely. I used to do a lot for others but deep inside I was draining, feeling unappreciated and exhausted. Working with Nicholas taught us to open our heart. To move from the head to a space of love and appreciation and how to bring heart into my life.

    Please do invest your time and money in growing within the relationship. Nicholas and Susan will assist you create a loving family. Your children deserve it. Adriana Custeau, Hypnotherapy (Hypnobirthing,Hypno IVF)


    Elizabeth and Anthony 

    Back in 2003 I attended a workshop hosted by Nicholas and Susan  which was the catalyst for changing my whole life around, it was also the time I first met my now partner Anthony.

    At that time I was never ever going to get involved in another relationship, men were just too much like hard work, By the time I’d finished the course I had started going out with Anthony. Anthony and I have been living together for 10 years now, we push each other’s buttons at times but all the work we’ve done with Nicholas and Susan has taught us how to work through the issues to find peace and harmony.


    Rod and Claire

    Our biggest problem when we met Nicholas and Susan was that our long-term relationship was on the brink of complete disintegration because of things we were mostly unaware of and others we were.

    …years ago, we were struggling with finding time for ourselves in the midst of raising our four young children. We both pretty much put things on hold and ignored the pain instead of being willing to share with one another what we really felt. This was a major contributor to the dilemma we faced in the longer term.

    Through Nicholas’ work we discovered a sure fire way to create intimacy and move beyond the resentment and shame that was holding us apart. What I really love about our relationship now is its openness and aliveness as we let go of old patterns that no longer serve us and the excitement as we build something very new after 30 years together. Now we look forward with a great deal of excitement and love to our new life together.

    I wish I knew Nicholas and Susan many years earlier, however after receiving great support from other teachers, a key thing that has helped us has been a powerful and supportive presence, devoid of judgment, that has empowered us to find our own unique solutions to the challenges that we've faced. All of that while having a great deal of fun.


    An amazing heart-warming and uplifting experience that I will implement for the rest of my life. I gained clarity to understand what was preventing me from moving forward and cleared it.
