Do you still see your partner through ‘rose tinted glasses’?

If the answer is ‘Yes’, then you have a greater chance of staying together.

Recent research on relationship breakups, indicates that it is not just the presence of negative factors that
contribute to them, but the absence of positive factors, that typically protect a couple from a relationship ending.

The 4 factors identified as most protective for a couple’s successful relationship, were:

  1. Having a rose-coloured view of your partner, e.g. positive illusions
  2. Being committed to the relationship
  3. Loving your partner
  4. Support from your social network, e.g. family and friends

Other factors such as trust and satisfaction are also important, but less so than the above.

So, maintaining those positive illusions about your partner, will enable you to maintain a satisfying and strong relationship! Build up feelings of positive regard, affection and warmth, and make sure you have good social support in times of stress, to safeguard your relationship into the future.

We are going real well, probably better than we ever expected.

I personally thank you for making such a difference to my life and I know (S) feels the same.

Your workshop was great for us and was what we needed to make a fresh start and turn our relationship around.

We'd recommend your workshop to any couple who are in trouble and want to rekindle their love!

Thanks again Carole

These are challenging times for everyone, but your personal issues continue to need assistance, and my practice is still open for both individual and relationship counselling, including Rekindle the Love workshops.
