The small stuff is more important

To many people, the world right now seems a frightening and unstable place in which to live.

There seems to be too any people in power with no perceivable limits or morals. In these circumstances, it can be easy to put your own needs, problems and life on hold, waiting for that disaster to happen.History shows that there is always going to be a threat to our safety and security, somewhere in the world, and when it’s over, day to day life just continues. Because no matter what happens, we as human beings, have a need to be part of a supportive and structured community, and that includes a partner.

It’s so easy to be overwhelmed by other people’s rhetoric and threats, but your and your partner’s problems are just as important. When all of this is done, you will still have the same relationship issues that prompted you to look for help. You and your partner are the heart of your family; however, it’s defined. You need to be able to provide the strength to support your family, and each other through all situations, and this can only happen when you are a committed couple unit.

Look after the small stuff! You are unlikely to be able to change any of the big issues in this world but you can give each other support, strength, and determination to continue through all times of stress and uncertainty. You can provide positive role models to your children and extended families. But you can only do this, if the problems currently besetting you as a couple, are able to be resolved and you reach that new level of respect, love and effective communication.

You, your partner and your family are the future. Take the time out to make sure that you, as a couple, are the best that you can be.

Carole does not take sides and her ability to provide perspective based on her wealth of experience was very helpful.

The exercises were very practical and really helped us to understand where we fail to communicate effectively or assume too much.

The conflict resolution list is very useful and anyone who masters this will experience a lot more peace in their relationship.

Thank you Carole.

It is early in the process but we both have optimism about our future together and our progress so far has been substantial.

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

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

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