Talking is an art between two people trying to be intimate.Screen Shot 2016-10-05 at 12.29.15 PM

Misunderstandings become huge sources of pain and conflict instead of opportunities for conflict resolution and clarification.

Needs and desires become difficulty to express calmly and confidently and thus two people who would rather care for each other become strangers or enemies.Screen Shot 2017-07-30 at 11.27.01 PM

Solution: Communication techniques that remedy these and many other confusions and hurts in a relationship are rather easy to teach. Even the first awkward practice session of these communication techniques results in calmer feelings, growth in mutual respect and some problems are solved.
