Building Relationship Competence across the nation
Our work with Companies & Individuals…
- In today’s always on digital world, many people struggle to maintain healthy relationships and establish effective boundaries that support strong emotional health. In high-pressure environments, the problems are particularly bad.
- Through a combination of in-person & online workshops, seminars and courses we work with organisations and also directly with individuals, to develop strong Relationship Skills both at work AND at home, resulting in less stressed people and happier, healthier workforces.
Our work with Charitable Organisations...
- Most people dream of finding a lifetime partner and at some stage enter into a committed relationship. Yet the stats confirm that most people don’t get their relationships right, and many end up either “making do”, or swapping them out.
- We believe it doesn’t have to be that way. Working with Community Leaders and Schools, we help people of all ages develop habits that allow them to improve their relationships, and better manage the intersections of home, work and life.
All relationships face a similar set of hurdles.
Success comes from being equipped to get over the hurdles.
4 Habits make the difference
Over the last 20+ years, working with countless couples & individuals, we’ve observed that ALL successful relationships exhibit 4 simple, yet fundamental, habits.
On the flip side, every failing relationship we’ve ever seen, lacks one or more of them.
The habits help us get over the hurdles of frustration that come from those key issues of Unmet Expectations, Poor Conflict Resolution skills, Trust & Respect Issues, and Poor Communication.
We can all learn these habits
That was the message our Co-founders shared in their March 2019 TEDx talk, The 4 Habits of ALL Successful Relationships.
Their ‘big idea’ – proactively developing key relationship skills can be the difference between success and failure in long-term relationships. Waiting until things break down before going to counselling is often too little, too late.

Why we do what we do…
Our driving purpose
Relationship and family breakdown is a huge problem across the globe. Half of all long-term couple relationships don’t “go the distance” with far reaching implications for the emotional & mental health of the individuals themselves and any children involved. Family & friends and wider society are also impacted. In 2019, the Research Foundation estimated that family breakdown is costing UK tax payers circa £51 bn per annum.
Relationship breakdown is also fuelling mental illness and suicide. In 2016, the Mental Health Foundation concluded that relationship breakdown is killing us as a society at roughly the same rate as smoking & alcohol, and faster than obesity & lack of exercise.
We believe it doesn’t have to be that way.
Through our own personal experience, and having worked with countless couples & individuals over the past 20+ years, we know that adopting a proactive approach to relationships is often the difference between success and failure.
By equipping people with the required skills to face inevitable challenges in their relationships early, we believe that together we can dramatically reduce relationships breakdown rates and bring down emotional & mental ill-health statistics at the same time. Our ten-year goal is to help 1,000,000 people take practical steps to build stronger relationships and enjoy better health and wellbeing.
