S5E8 - Inner communication

November 19, 2021

Sometimes we are our own worst enemies using harsh inner communication.

We share some tricks how to change your bad thoughts into positive. We also remind you to not lose sight of the end goal in mind. Communicate to build a strong love bond and not break it

Don't let assumptions and societal pressure dictate how you feel about yourself.

Learn how to read your partners body language and facial expressions. This is where the signals of a mean inner communication first is seen.

Be kind to yourself!

S5E4 - Otherness

November 19, 2021

One of the biggest challenges in a romantic relationship is that everyone is different. Thankfully! These differences are part of what makes you and your partner grow together.
But why can it be so hard?
Most relationships start with both partners trying to hide their otherness to try attract the other one. Slowly but surely the things that you have been hiding will be revealed.

S5E3 - Stress reducing conversations

What is a stress reducing conversation?
How is it done and what does it help us with?
The purpose of this process is to assist couples in the management of daily external stress, stress that comes from OUTSIDE the relationship, like job stress. If you can handle this together it may help reduce stress WITHIN the relationship too.

The motto, "Understanding First, then Advice", means that emotional connection should be honoured, before moving to problem-solving. Empathy with emotions and problem solving are like two pieces of
a jigsaw puzzle: they fit together, and each is invaluable.

S5E1 - We have a problem with our communication

November 19, 2021

Welcome to our first season in English!

In an effort to help and inspire more people we have decided to add some seasons in English too.

This season is about communication. An area that seems to be at the root of most relationships problems, or the lack of it that is.

We also dig a bit deeper and notice that the words seem to be getting across fine many times but the recipient just does't like the message. So what is communication really about? Can we get better at it? Listen and find out what our thoughts are on the subject.
