I believe that one of the greatest gifts in life is a loving and fulfilling relationship with another person.
But who teaches us how to have great relationships?
If we are lucky our parents had a great relationship and we can model that.
I learned by trial and error and with lots and lots of errors!
My first marriage was when I was young and naive and that came to a quick and difficult ending because of multiple infidelities by my wife.
My second marriage lasted for 20 years and it became clear, too late, that we had drifted apart and our experiences with marriage counselling did not help.
My third marriage to Debbie was wonderful and I was able to start to put in place all I had learned until she was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour and passed away three years later.
Gwen and I met on 2nd July 2017 at 11.15. We were engaged 22 days later and married after 166 days. We have a wonderful relationship and work, every day to make it even better.
Gwen inspired me to write my first book and to create my vision of helping many people have loving and sustainable relationships.
My mission is 'To Impact and Improve 10 million relationships around the world in this decade'

Our purpose is to help couples develop loving and fulfilling relationships with each other.

Couples often assume that things will stay the same, despite the passage of time and changes in life. Not all are able to recognise when things have changed for the worse.
