TheConfidante In the Media
As a specialist in Relationship Therapy, how could you not resist picking up a book, “First, Kill all the Marriage Counselors”?
It turns out, what a great read! The author Laura Doyle, self-described “feminist and former shrew” only consults with females in troubled relationships. She provides Six Intimacy Skills to support women with insight to evaluate their own attitudes and behaviour that she advises men are usually reacting to!
Whilst this one is for the chicks, I know you blokes will want to take a peek:
Doyle’s very candid and rather witty book eludes that she has personally experienced Marriage Therapists as too controlling and directive instead of taking a more nurturing coaching style. Here’s my overview of her Six Intimacy Skills:
SKILL ONE: REPLENISH YOUR SPIRIT WITH SELF CARE
SKILL TWO: RESTORE RESPECT
SKILL THREE: RELINQUISH CONTROL OF YOUR MAN
SKILL FOUR: RECEIVE RECEIVE RECEIVE
SKILL FIVE: REVEAL YOUR HEART WITH VULNERABILITY
SKILL SIX: REFOCUS YOUR VIEW WITH GRATITUDE
Some great reminders there for the girls from Laura Doyle - with gratitude! I wonder what the fellas think of all that?
