ABOUT THIS COURSE

Identify and solve issues in your relationship using communication, conflict resolution, and other proven therapy techniques - online, in the comfort of your home.


Experts agree - Couples should seek therapy long before they think they "need" to. Therapy should be an important part of your relationship - 75% of couples who attend marriage counseling believe they are "better off" after, and 65% report "significant improvement" in their relationship. 

Half of all couples who have counseling maintain their improved relationship two years later. Therapy works to solve issues without blame by teaching you how to communicate, listen, and compromise. 

Don't let anything hold you back! If you want to fix your relationship, but don't know how, we are here to help. Do you want to attend couples counseling but don't have the time - or the money? Then this course is for you!

Specially made for couples who want to strengthen and heal their relationship, this online course was written by our expert, Emma Abel, who holds a Masters Degree in Couples and Family Therapy and has studied under the famous Dr Gottman. In this course you will gain all the tools needed to identify and solve issues within your relationship.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

Starting by evaluating your relationship in an honest and open way, you'll learn how to see problems that are unique to your relationship and understand what needs to be done to fix them. In this course we'll discuss red flags, what open and honest communication looks like, how to rebuild trust, and the impact of your sex life, among other topics. Through our expert's guidance and your honest effort, you will gain a full understanding of how relationships work. 

This course is for anyone who would like to see their relationship grow and flourish. All romantic relationships between partners of every orientation and type will benefit from the communication strategies and problem-solving contained in this helpful, sensitively approached, and thorough course.

This course will teach you what a good and healthy relationship is like and what changes you might need to make to achieve your “couples goals”. You will learn about common issues faced by couples, how to overcome those issues, and what steps to take to secure a future together. Our experts walk you through the various therapy methods to an understanding of the benefits of working to strengthen your relationship. You will gain the knowledge and skills you need to overcome obstacles and better communicate with your partner in an open and healthy way.
