In our mainstream society the images and stories we hear about relationships are mostly the heterosexual and monogamous kind. Boy meets girl, they fall in love and then live happily ever after. But that isn’t the only way, there is an entire spectrum of types of romantic relationships that we don’t often see in the media. In today's episode we chat with Bradford & Angela who are in a long term open relationship, they see ot...

It’s not what we are arguing about that matters, it’s how we are arguing. An argument can be productive and constructive or destructive. There are 4 behaviours that can be damaging in conflict - Criticism, Contempt, Defensiveness, Stonewalling and being able to identify these four Horsemen within your conflict is the first step to stopping them and replacing them with healthier and more productive communication.Dr Marisa T.

Throughout our lives it’s inevitable that we will grow, evolve and change. Some people more so than others. But what happens when you grow away from something that was a core part of who you were? A part that formed a huge element of your self identity? And how do you evolve in a way that is helpful to your relationship and not harmful. Pete shares his story of evolution that led him away from the church and towards his career as a...

It’s been said that when you stop growing you start dying. Yet growth doesn’t always happen by accident and when there are two people in a relationship growing at different speeds it can be challenging to navigate. Especially if one is growing and the other is dying.

Today we chat with Daisy Nguyen & Andrew Ramsden, they are both wildly passionate about supporting others to create joyful, thriving and evolving relationships and...

Humans have 5 different senses - sight, sound, taste, smell and touch, and we also have 5 different love languages. Did you know that you can use relaxation and massage to hit all of them, all at once!? Connecting to ourselves and our partners can be hard to do when we are experiencing stress but without regular intimate connection, relationships can suffer.

Taking responsibility for the part you’ve played - good or bad is vital to a thriving relationship. But that isn’t always easy and sometimes even harder to communicate it to the person you are doing life with. The way we communicate when we make a mistake is just like our regular communication style, we are all a little bit different and sometimes just saying “I’m sorry” won’t cut it.

Our relationship with ourselves sets the tone for every other relationship that we have. But what happens when that relationship isn’t in a great state? How do you hit pause or do a hard reset? Does it have to get worse before it gets better? And where do you even start to decipher your own beliefs, values and patterns of behaviour? We’ve all got these blind spots and it’s our responsibility to look for them, heal and develop an in...

All those little things - morning kisses, cups of tea, knowing when it’s a time for listening or a time for action and advice, can add up to or detract from a truly beautiful relationship. Research shows us that these little things really do matter and without them, we don’t have much.Jacqui is Professor of Sociology and Intimacy at The Open University in the UK and Chief Relationships Officer at Paired.

When we meet someone and start a relationship, we come to it not as perfect but as a person. We all make mistakes and we’ve all had a spectrum of different experiences but without learning from the mistakes or taking responsibility for healing from the past, we can end up incredibly unhappy. Sometimes we even expect our partners to take responsibility to do the growing and healing for us. But it’s not their responsibility, it’s our...

We are often attracted to people that are different from us. Introverted - Extroverted. Spender - Saver. Lover - Fighter. Yet these differences can then become fuel for a lot of conflict. Finding harmony with ourselves and each other when these differences arise, is one of the best ways to keep a relationship thriving.Debbie Rivers is a Relationship Expert who works with singles and couples.

Our ability to examine and control our emotions isn’t a skill taught at school, yet it’s something we do each and every day, especially if we are in a relationship.  If left unexamined, the way we feel and why we gravitate to certain emotions over others can be a mystery. With conscious effort, continuous practice and self reflection we can increase our self awareness, emotional intelligence, well-being and relationships.John &...

Relationships break down when the pillars of trust, communication and respect have deteriorated or when our values are no longer in alignment. When these things happen, conflict occurs. It’s an inevitable part of being in a relationship yet we are rarely taught how to deal with conflict well. Learning these fundamental skills can help avoid unnecessary pain or even break-ups.Siobhan is a multi-award winning, collaboratively trained...

Moving through life from birth to adulthood, we all have unique experiences. Not one person has had the exact same experience as another. These encounters shape the way we see the world and along the way, we have both positive and negative experiences some of which create trauma. This is how our beliefs are shaped and it’s where the operating system for our brain comes from. Sometimes people don’t realise that traumatic experience ...

Our attitude determines how well we do anything and then when we team that with aptitude, we can do awesome things. The same is true for our attitude towards money and finances. When we begin to have long term intent for our relationship, our finances will have an impact on our future together. It’s unlikely you’ve both got the exact same attitude towards money and shifting your attitude together can empower you to create a thrivin...

The feelings of stress or anxiety don’t exist until you have a thought that creates them. Our beliefs and the stories we tell ourselves shape our entire experience of life, love and relationships. If you believe you are unlucky in love, you will be. If you believe an incredible thriving relationship is possible and possible for you, you are a huge leap forward to truly creating it for yourself.Jeff Krahl has spent more than 25,000&...

When we are tired it’s hard to show up as our best selves for ourselves and for our relationships. Yet catching the Zzz’s isn’t always as simple and easy as putting your head on the pillow, especially if you are sharing a bed with someone who’s got a different sleep style than you.

It’s said that a business, no matter how well intentioned and designed, is only as good as the processes and people who work in it. The same is kinda true for our romantic relationships.

There are so many simple things in life that can bring us happiness; watching the sunrise, splashing in the ocean or exploring a forest. The simple things in our relationship can also be the absolute best parts; appreciating each other, asking considered questions and true quality time doing not much. Making the simple complicated is common, but keeping it simple and consistent can keep your relationship fuelled up.Megan and her hu...

Have you ever been commuting somewhere, perhaps driving and you’ve arrived at your destination without having to really think all that much about the route? You’ve done that path from A-B so often it’s now practically automatic! The same thing can happen in our lives where we develop automatic patterns and behaviours and things start running on auto-pilot, even if those actions aren’t serving us any more. If left unchecked, leaving...
