Try us now and we will show you how to get more love in your life.
Close your eyes and picture getting support from the privacy of your own home and the comfort of your own couch. You can listen to us as we talk from our combined 50 years of experience. You’ll get pre-recorded material as well as the opportunity to interact live on occasional conference calls.
You are not deficient if you have conflicts. We know that normal marriages face tough challenges that drive lovers apart unless they learn techniques to create an incredible relationship.
As one participant marveled,
“I now feel we have a great opportunity to create an incredible relationship. I really do not see how a couple could be effective without learning these techniques!”
We have created online resources in a special member’s only area where you can learn strategies to overcome common relationship problems, and where you can interact with us. We really hope you’ll join us in your quest for a happy, satisfying marriage or relationship.
Relationship Advice From People With Solid Credentials.
It’s not unusual to search the internet and find e-books full of relationship advice written by ghostwriters or business people with questionable credentials who have never worked with couples on the nitty-gritty, day-in and day-out problems all couples face. Our degrees are in Psychology, and even more important is the years of hands-on experience we have working with real people and real problems.
Our training is genuine, our information is practical, and our experience is unsurpassed and – our marriage is 30 years long.
You’ll have instant access to a whole collection of print and audio information. If you were going to see a marriage therapist, you’d need time to convince your spouse, choose a therapist and schedule an appointment. But you can listen immediately to programs on a variety of common relationship problems.
For example, in the conference call on “The Emotional Brain,” we discuss why things our partners say can be so painful. And then teach a quick technique to get over it in just a few minutes. And you can listen to it as soon as you sign up.
Communication problems? Check out the communications section, where you’ll find articles and audios that can provide specific ways to start your next difficult discussion. Every couple has challenging issues to discuss. Why not learn from the experts and do it with finesse?
Do your arguments spiral out of control? Do you end up sometimes worse than where you started? Hurt feelings and no constructive solutions? We’ve got specific strategies to help you stop getting into those negative cycles.
Many couples benefit from the intense focus of a professional therapist. But we realize that some situations call for creative, instant help. Some couples can’t afford therapy. Others want to augment their therapy with additional growth.
