READY TO MINGLE – WORKSHOP FOR SINGLES

A large part of having a healthy relationship with another depends on our relationship with ourselves. This workshop helps participants reconnect to self, through exercises relating to their self-talk, fostering self-compassion and self-love. Participants will also reflect on their wants and expectations in a relationship. Beyond that the facilitators will be sharing some of the known relationship stumbling blocks and how you can overcome them to help create a lasting relationship. The content is adapted by Darby Crosby and Kameela Osman, from Dr. John Gottman’s The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Workshop and infused with learnings form their joint decades in the field of psychotherapy.

ENHANCE YOUR RELATIONSHIP – WORKSHOP FOR COUPLES

Reconnect, reinvigorate and reboot your relationship.

The Enhance your Relationship workshop is based on adapted content of Dr. John Gottman’s The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Workshop. We are looking at bringing the highlights of that workshop, in addition to our joint decades of work in the field of psychotherapy, to help you! The workshop doesn’t require participants to share personal struggles with the larger group, it rather allows for participants to gain the tools and then decide how they will apply it to their relationshipWe’ll specifically be looking at reconnection, fostering admiration, conflict resolution and how to get past having the same

arguments again and again.
