COMMUNICATION BREAKTHROUGH FOR COUPLES
Richard Nicastro, Ph.D.

The benefit of effective couples communication is far-reaching:
- Deeper emotional intimacy;
- Greater harmony and fulfillment;
- Less conflict, bickering and disagreements;
- Mutual understanding and support;
- An increased sense of togetherness and fun.
Whether you’re dating, getting married for the first time, remarried or together for fifty years, there’s no way around it:
A fulfilling marriage and relationship requires meaningful couples communication.
Sadly, the vast majority of couples who come to me for marriage therapy and couples counseling haven’t learned the skills needed to create a successful relationship. So many couples start their relationship assuming their love was immune to the marriage or relationship problems that so many couples face, only to find out down the road how challenging relationships can be. Does this sound familiar?
Even some of the best relationships suffer because couples simply don’t utilize the effective communication skills needed for a long-term, fulfilling union. Just because you’re deeply in love with your spouse/partner doesn’t mean your relationship is immune to the relationship stresses and challenges all couples face.
The fact is that most divorced people will tell you that at one time, they were head-over-heels in love with the person they later divorced. And there were probably moments when their relationship felt like an amazing gift. Sadly, feeling like you’ve finally found your soulmate isn’t enough to protect your relationship and ensure success.
As a psychologist and couples counselor, I’ve witnessed the transformative power of effective communication in the lives of couples–that’s why I created this e-book.
The simple truth is that there are no secrets or “quick fixes” to creating a happy marriage or relationship. What’s needed? Ongoing attention and specific communication tools.
