Many teachers, trainers and authors have inspired me in my journey to become a relationship coach and therapist. I’ve done four webinar trainings in couples work & sex therapy with Dr. Terry Real & Dr. Esther Perel where they addressed the many issues which couples face, especially around power and sexuality. I also did his online webinar training Relational Life Therapy Level 1 in addition to various audio classes.
Terry Real is an internationally recognized Family Therapist and author who has been featured often on Good Morning America and ABC News. Terry founded the Relational Life Institute (RLI), and offers a professional training program for clinicians to learn his RLT (Relational Life Therapy) method.
I have created a series of handouts which combine my 2013 teleseminar trainings with Terry Real and Esther Perel, his “Foundations of Relational Life” training, and my reading of the following materials “The New Rules of Marriage“, “I Don’t Want to Talk About It“, “How Can I Get Through to You?“, the “Relational Life Institute Toolkit” & his “Full Respect Living Tool Kit“.
