For Couples

  • Communication: Inevitably in long term relationships there are times when couples need to talk about difficult things. However difficult conversations are risky because anger, hurt, upset and other negative feelings might become overwhelming and damage the respect, trust and love in a relationship. Often, in the hope of avoiding emotional angst, couples put off difficult conversations and that inevitably means resentments build up and explode at inconvenient times in the future.

  • Emotional Safety is Essential to Stay Connected: How to stay connected and not grow apart is a challenge for couple’s when our 21st Century lives are so busy and stressful. Snappiness, put-downs, not listening and communicating thoughts and feelings, not negotiating solutions, not communicating affection, not sharing the unpaid work equally, all cause partners to feel emotionally unsafe and to disconnect and back away for self-protection.

  • Appreciation is Essential for creating emotional safety and staying connected.

  • Loss of sexual connection is an early sign that communication has broken down and there is a loss of emotional safety in the relationship … get help fast! It’s unlikely the problem will fix itself

With new 21st Century communication and conflict resolution skills, couples are often surprised to find how quickly they can learn to talk their way to happiness.
