Clear, concise and practical, Rekindle the Spark provides an at-home programme of interactive exercises that explore common relationship problems and enable you to acquire skills and strategies to help create and maintain a bond that is happy and healthy. The programme is based on cognitive behavioural therapy and the author’s long experience of relationship and psychosexual counselling.
Each of the ten steps explores a distinct and common issue:
• Knowing yourself more deeply
• Truly knowing your partner
• Effective communication
• The art of real listening
• Recognising and dealing with emotions
• How to handle an argument
• Putting the fun back into your relationship
• The role of sex and intimacy in your relationship
• The importance of keeping your own identity
• Sharing the workload at home
Rekindle the Spark is an effective self-help programme for couples. It can be worked on in your own time, in the privacy of your home, either alone or with your partner. Whatever your circumstances, from newly-weds to empty-nesters, this book will help you rekindle the spark in your relationship.
