Are you married or in a long-term relationship?
If so you probably know that staying close and connected in the midst of juggling the demands of work and family life can be a challenge!
Do you find yourself longing for the closeness you used to feel?
Do you feel frustrated by constantly thrashing out the same old arguments?
Or does it feel like you and your partner rarely have anything to say to each other anymore beyond the logistics of the day-to-day?
Are you stuck between either criticising each other or defending yourselves from blame?
If any of these questions strike a chord, this workshop for couples could be for you.
The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Program is based on four decades of research into the factors that contribute to long-lasting and happy relationships by world renowned relationship expert Dr John Gottman.
Facilitated by Madonna Hirning, local Psychologist, couples therapist and Leader of the Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Program, these workshops are held across two consecutive Saturday afternoons. You will be provided with a copy of the book The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by Dr John Gottman, and a workbook each outlining all of the exercises covered in the program. During the workshop you will gain knowledge and a range of skills that have been scientifically proven to improve relationships. You will have the opportunity to work privately with your partner to practice the skills you learn along the way, and will not be required to share details about your relationship. This workshop is educational rather than therapeutic in nature and can be a good starting point to open up communication with your partner.
Madonna is passionate about the capacity of relationships to evolve over time. Through these workshops she aims to help couples discover new ways to manage conflict and learn small changes that can lead to big improvements in closeness and connection. Madonna strives to present these workshops in a way that is light, engaging, non-threatening and non-judgemental.
There are currently four workshops planned for 2018 here on the Sunshine Coast at the North Shore Community Centre, Mudjimba. The next workshop is on Saturday 17 & Saturday 24 February 2018 from 1-5pm. You can learn more and book your place by going to www.letmeflourish.com/workshops.
