"The It was useful to help breakdown the cycle we have been stuck in. A facilitator helped break down convos to make my significant other see how I processed and vice versa. I think we are definitely on the right track to move forward in our relationship. We both have a better understanding of one another. I would definitely recommend.
This is a very good start to developing a stronger relationship. "- January 2019 participant
