All of us at one point or another, been confused about love and have wanted to understand: How to get the love we want? and how do we keep it from disappearing?
Love is a fundamental human emotional need.
We all seek a deep love and connection in our long-term relationships. Sadly, what we have been taught to believe about love and relationships has created a failing system. The divorce rate is about 50% in first marriages, over 60% in second marriages, infidelity rate is 40% in unmarried couples and 25% in married couples.
We have struggled with this age-old question in our personal lives as well. Apart from getting formal schooling in the field, each of us has had our own journeys on trying to understand, unveil, and decode the ‘secrets’ to being in a secure long term relationship where:
- both people feel, loved, prized, and respected.
- there’s room for each partner to be themselves without losing the other
each partner can evolve and become a better version of themselves
- the couple can be each other’s support, guides, and mentors.
Answering these questions mattered so much to us personally and professionally that we have discovered the unique set of concepts, principles, and techniques that have proven to us and our clients that loving peaceful relationships are possible for anyone who wants them.
Relationship work is our passion. We live for those moments when a client converts from following our guidance and support to being able to be their own guide and support. The moment where they just ‘get it’.
It an honor to experience the freedom of an individual. An honor we get to experience consistently.
We provide deep healing and help create connections that our clients didn’t think were possible. We are action-oriented and bring in the past in only as needed, in service to your present and future.
We love what we do and we can’t wait to share it with you.
