And yes, this might seem a whole lot easier than navigating ongoing issues with your current partner. However, in many cases this is a short term fix. 

Why? Because you could be repeating the same patterns of behaviour in all your relationships. 

If this is your experience it doesn’t have to be. Once you know the secrets of a happy relationship, and begin to apply them, you will be able to ask for what you need without blaming, attacking or feeling defensive. You will know how to stop situations from escalating, and how it feels to be heard, validated and understoodOverall you will experience more connection, intimacy and love. 

Of course even happy couples experience difficulties. But they also know how to navigate them more successfully.
