This programme comprises three, 1-day modules. Each of these takes the couple through three steps needed to restore/create intimacy, trust and empathy – vital ingredients in sustaining respect, kindness and love. 

These three steps are …

  1. Clear communication.

  2. Letting go of past grievances.

  3. Visioning a positive future and the tools to sustain it.
     

This, I have come to see is equally essential/valuable whether the couple are committed to staying together, when one or both parties are ambivalent about their future status or, (maybe especially) when they are thinking seriously about separation.

Each module is five and a half hours plus breaks and is designed to be delivered over a day. They can be taken consecutively over three days, or broken up. Timings are flexible and can be altered to suit your time zone.

TASTER SESSION

I recognise that committing to a whole module or more may be a big step. With this in mind, I have designed a taster session which offers a reduced version of Module 1’s communication model. If this appeals, be advised a thirty minute pre-call will be needed to prepare you and your partner for some preparation work which will need to be done beforehand.

WHAT IF YOUR PARTNER IS NOT KEEN?

Where both parties are unwilling or unavailable, I am available to support individuals with their relational lives in a one to one setting. There is much that can be done to support clear communication and building trust even on a unilateral basis.
