helping Couples create better marriages

A Common Challenge Of Unhappy Couples

Many married couples who are stuck in unhappy marriages want to improve their relationships, but don’t know where to start to begin fixing things so that they can have a happier and better relationship again.

That’s a potentially huge problem, especially if you end up failing to figure things out as a couple, as it can cause your family to break apart, leading to feelings of shame, sadness, embarrassment, financial problems, splitting a life in half, worrying about what will happen with the kids, and so on.

Some couples end up losing so much when their marriages come apart.

But it doesn't have to end that way as YOU have the choice and ability to turn things around...

Imagine If...

Instead of feeling like strangers, you feel close again

The foundation of every successful love relationship starts with a strong emotional bond between two people. But this connection must be prioritised and nurtured daily.

Instead of living past each other, you are growing together

The longevity of a love relationship depends on constant and continuous growth. When something is no longer growing it is essentially dying. Growing together is a must.

Instead of feeling frustrated everyday, you are happy again

The atmosphere of a love relationship plays a major role in the overall state of things. When it feels good being in a relationship, everything else is easy. The opposite is also true.

How would your life be different if...

  • As a couple you felt aligned and on the same page in your marriage?
  • Your children had happier parents most of the time?
  • Your whole family got along in peace?
  • You were free from negative past issues in your marriage?
  • You could finally be the kind of spouse and parent you've always wanted to be?

If that's what you want, then let me help you!

Introducing Marriage Renovation Coaching (MRC)

A step-by-step process to rebuild and refresh your marriage

MRC is online coaching that takes you from being stuck or frustrated as a married couple right now to being happier, healthier and more intimate again.

This coaching is NOT for newbies but couples who have been together for a while but have started losing their way, spark, and connection. MRC will help you overcome the struggles that have brought you to this place and help you remember why you're a married couple in the first place. For every unhappy couple now, started out happy before, and tapping into that can sometimes get us out of our current slump.

In this marriage coaching program you will discover the mindset, concepts, and strategies needed to get out of your rut and create a relationship you both enjoy and love.

Every session builds on previous ones so that you essentially renovate your marriage from the ground up.

So many couples want to fix one or two things in their marriages without realising that these are often simply symptoms of much bigger and more pervasive underlying issues they must resolve first. And once those challenges are dealt with, the symptoms tend to automatically take care of themselves.

This coaching program is also specifically designed to give you the same experience as if you were sitting in front of me in person.

MRC is designed to do 4 main things:

  • Educate you (you don't know what you don't know)
  • Create awareness (you can only implement what you know and understand)
  • Action on your part (nothing changes unless something changes)
  • Keeping you accountable (we need support to push us forward when we lack the motivation at times)

But again...

MRC is not for everyone!

Some couples are simply not interested in renewing and rebuilding their relationships. They are simply more interested in playing games, holding their spouses prisoner for past mistakes, staying angry, holding onto grievances, or are just too hurt to invest in fixing things.

And that's fine! It just means MRC is not for you.

But, if you're both committed to keep and open mind, learn new things, and do whatever it takes to make some much needed changes to rebuild and refresh your marriage...then MRC is for you and I would love to hear from you.

Click the button below, fill out the form, and I will be in touch.

Join MRC ?

My Marriage Renovation Coaching (MRC) program will take you from where you are now to creating a happier marriage and life.

is this you?

  • You are still very much committed to your spouse and family but it feels like as a couple you've fallen out of touch with each other.
  • You've had a solid marriage until the kids were born after which life just seems to have taken over and your marriage has been put on the backburner.
  • You want to have a good and intimate marriage but you just don't know how or where to get started to get things back on track again.
  • You know that you and your spouse can be great together, because you've been before, but lately you just kind of live past each other doing your own thing.
  • You are committed to do whatever it takes to renovate and refresh your marriage again, you simply need the tools, skills and support to do that.

If one or all of those resonate with you...Marriage Renovation Coaching is a good and right next step for you.

Steps To How MRC Works

Step 1

Discover the foundation of ALL successful love relationships, the structure you must continuously work on as couple, and what relationship "killers" to watch out for in your marriage.

Step 2

Discover the #1 skill all couples must learn to improve communication, according to psychologists, the differences in how men and women tend to communicate in marriage, and why it trips up so many couples. Also learn my LOVE-talk strategy for better communication and less conflict.

Step 3

Discover the power of polarity, what it is, and how you can create more of it if you want to increase your levels of playfulness, sensuality, and attraction.

Step 4

Learn about the power of significance and how this influences relationships (especially for men), how to grow healthily as a couple, and how service can completely change the quality and future of your marriage.

By the end of the coaching program you will:

  • have the understanding and tools necessary to create and sustain a healthy and happy relationship with your spouse.
  • have better insight into who you spouse is and what they want in your marriage and from you.
  • know what obstacles and pitfalls to avoid to keep the bond with your spouse from breaking down and your relationship suffering as a result.
  • know what to do when you run into marital challenges again in the future
  • have a practical framework and strategies to keep growing together as a couple rather than apart.
