Clinical Psychologist, Dorianne Weil

These days we aim simply for survival. Getting through another day. What can we learn from couples who thrive? Do they have less challenges or fewer problems? Of course not! It’s not whether there are difficulties .. it’s how they deal with them that determines Thrival, says Weil.

Join ‘ DrD ‘ as she answers some of your questions and discusses three characteristics of healthy couples:

1. Space but not distance. Closeness but not intrusion
2. Task Negotiation - who does what around here?

3. Communication: how to talk so your partner listens. And how to listen so your partner talks.

It's a relationship booster from a clinical psychologist with many years of couple's therapy under her belt. Listen below.
