From Surviving to Thriving in a Romantic Relationship 

Some people find it hard to talk to a complete stranger about their personal issues. They are concerned they will be blamed – which is far from the truth, as I don’t feel that blaming someone is helpful. Anyway, it’s about the relationship that’s not working as well as it could, and how to make it better.

We are all individuals and view the world in different ways. So it’s about managing those differences, which isn’t always easy!

So for those people who feel uncomfortable about sharing the issues they are facing, I decided to write a book. I have dran on my personal experiences, together with those of clients I have worked with.  As well as suggestions on how to dealwith those tricky times, it has some exercises that readers can use to help them.

So what’s the book about?

‘ From Surviving to Thriving in a Romantic Relationship’  takes the reader through the journey of a typical romantic relationship. Starting at the Romantic Stage, that delicious, delightful stage where love and loving is easy. It then moves on into the Real Relationship, where stuff gets in the way. The stresses and strains that cause issues, making it more difficult to manage and even enjoy each other. As the title says – just surviving.  I identify the problems you may encounter and practical exercises on how to resolve them, and turn your relationship into one where its thriving.

My aim is not a   ‘How to do it’ book, as each relationship, and each person is different, and so what might work for one couple may not work for others. It’s about exploring the issues you experience, and how you can resolve them, making it the best version of it for each of you –  and a happy relationship.
