    I will have been married for 26 years (in 2023) and counselled couples for nearly as long. I am a Gottman Level 3 trained therapist with other accreditations in hypnotherapy and medicine.


    The biggest problem I see with couples going through conflict is treating their partner with less respect than a business partner. When you want a business to run smoothly, you provide the level of attention and time it needs, you put supports into place to help eliminate errors, and if a problem does arise, you problem-solve in the moment (which often requires compromise and negotiation)  so that a favourable behaviour change is initiated. You realize people are humans and humans make mistakes. Good business spends less time blaming and shaming and far more character-building that focuses on honesty and integrity.


    When managing conflict, I help partners remove the emotion and find a fair solution for both parties. I concentrate a lot on the individuals self-growth and less on the need to be right and prove the other to be wrong.
