Relationship Advice Tips from Dr. Jeanette Raymond, Ph.D.

Have you tried reading self-help books to make your relationship work, finding the advice sensible but impractical?

Perhaps you have been on couples retreats, gone to couples workshops and taken courses on communicating with your partner, gaining intimacy with your spouse and managing conflict with your loved one – but still not succeeded with any degree of consistency.

Don’t you already know that you should share feelings, be open, communicate authentically, avoid secrets and stop playing power games?

Sure you do, so why would you need to pay good money to be told all that over again?

A missing link  prevents you from doing what you already know is the right thing.

That piece is the powerful emotional component that stops you and your partner from adopting the skills you are aware of.

So when you come to putting those skills into practice the fears that you carry about losing your loved one, trusting, being cheated on, not being good enough and so on get in the way of the success.

It’s not that you lack skills or need to learn new ones. It’s the fears and insecurities producing relationship stress that get in your way.

Learn how I helped a couple just like you to deal with their fears of things not working out together so that they were then able to utilize the skills that they already had, and those they learned afresh.

If you and your partner really want to help yourselves, get a jump start by tackling those pesky fears and frustrations that prevent you from enjoying intimacy and security. Find out how to do that in this video.
