It’s time for a new conversation about relationships.
Rather than being focussed on fixing problems it’s time to be inspired.
To get beyond the ordinary and into the extraordinary.
It’s simpler than you think.
Annette Baulch and Graeme Sudholz, specialist relationship counsellors, authors, international workshop and retreat facilitators are a breath of fresh air when it comes to talking about relationships.
Through their work with couples Annette and Graeme since 2006 they are known for changing people’s lives as they change relationships. They believe that creating better relationships starts with growing each individual and what they bring to the relationship rather than focusing on what’s wrong with the relationship itself. They show people how to safely and authentically break down the walls of hurt and misunderstanding that bring new life to long term relationships, both in the bedroom and without.
They’re keen to help people find meaning in relationships again.
To uncover what really matters…
To get to the heart of what it means to love and be loved
To desire and be desired.
Annette and Graeme from Oztantra draw on 12 years of counselling and coaching experience, helping many hundreds of couples find new meaning and connection in their relationships. Working with couples, as a couple, with a combination of feminine heart and masculine clarity their sessions are a multidimensional mix of understanding, fun, heart and soul that invites their clients to bring their best feet forward. Their background in Tantra means they bring an open, non-judgemental and deshaming approach to all things sexual. They’ve also adapted Tantra in a non-woo woo style that is relevant and practical for modern relationships.
Annette and Graeme have a genuine desire to see couples break through to each other, to get beyond their masks of survival, to connect and really know each other. They’re fun and not afraid to venture into and make us comfortable in places that would normally have most of us cringing in our seats. They’ll show us how normal we are, no matter how flawed we might feel. Audiences will be intrigued, curious, a little shocked and most of all inspired.

The real story of building a successful relationship
Annette and Graeme got together in 2001 after meeting at a personal development workshop they were attending in Western Victoria in order to discover what had gone wrong in their previous long-term relationships.
After a tentative start protecting their uncertain hearts the floodgates opened and they fell deeply in love. They moved in together, and also started working together in a business they love almost as much as they love each other- teaching other couples from across the world how to live and love in relationship. They currently live in the beautiful north coast of New South Wales, working both from home and travelling overseas.
Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it? But the story of the couple behind the successful business face shows that you don’t have to have it all to get it all.
Annette and Graeme started their relationship whilst both were healing their hurt from the past. Graeme in particular, as he had only been out of his 22 year marriage for 3 months when he met Annette. At this time he was still going through the ordeal of supporting his children during a difficult divorce and re-establishing himself in a new business. Annette had been out of her 19 year marriage for much longer and had gained a great deal of self-awareness and during this time, but she found it was all too easy to disappear behind her man in her this new relationship and had to go back to the drawing board to learn a deeper level of self-confidence.
Annette and Graeme will share some of the secrets they’ve found to growing a loving, passionate and sustainable relationship with a magic that doesn’t die in the face of harsh reality, including:
- Building a loving relationship in the real world
- Seeing how what frustrates you most about your partner can bring you closer together
- Finding a place of safety and desire in the bedroom
- The importance of balancing your sense of self with your connection to your significant other
