• Relationship Problems

Life is about relationships and we work hard to develop good relationships with those around us… friend, boss, co-worker, parent, child, husband, wife, neighbour etc.

But sometimes things go sideways in our relationships and thats when the problems begin.

To have a healthy relationship you need to be able to effectively communicate your thoughts, needs, desires and concerns with another emotional human being. Each person has their own skill level when it comes to communication so it can be tricky navigating.


Good Communication can make a relationship and bad communication can break a relationship.

Fortunately, you can learn how to communicate more clearly and effectively. Whether you’re trying to improve a relationship, end one or find one effective communication skills will enable you to effectively connect with others, build trust and respect, and feel heard and understood.

Occasional conflict is a part of life but if you and your partner are repeating the same crappy situation day after day its time to break free of this toxic pattern. With effort, you can lessen the anger and take a calm look at the issues underneath.
