Communication skills for couples - A 1-day workshop
Are you able to say how you feel and ask for what you need in your relationship? Are you good at listening to your partner and empathising with their point of view? If these skills are challenging for you or your partner, you're not alone. Most of us did not grow up in families that modelled these relational skills and they weren't taught at school!
This workshop provides an opportunity to learn two essential components of effective communication:
How to express your feelings without blame so that your partner can hear you without becoming defensive.
How to listen empathically so that you can really understand how your partner is feeling.
What are the benefits?
Regularly practising emotionally intelligent communication can strengthen your relationship by helping you to:
build trust and goodwill
encourage greater honesty and transparency
provide emotional support to each other
Who is it for?
All couples are welcome whether long-term or newly formed, straight or gay. Couples will practise skills with their own partner to maximise their learning. Being in a relationship can be hard work and it's easy to think we are the only ones with communication issues. The aim of this workshop is to create a relaxed and friendly learning environment in which we can support each other in our desire for healthier and more loving relationships.
