Relationship Strategies – E&P Attraction with George Kappas
Do you know why you and your partner may be opposites in many areas?
This is a link to a video that goes into what I refer to as the “Head and Heart” model.
In the video George Kappas talks about “Emotionals” and “Physicals”.
“Physicals” = Heart centred people.
“Emotionals” = Head centred people.
After watching the video, there is a test you can do to determine the percentage of Physical (Heart) and Emotional (Head) you are.

Theory Of Mind with John Melton
Do you know how your mind works? And why you have some of the challenges you have in life and relationships? This is a link to a video that goes into what is referred to as “Theory of Mind”. This 33 minute video describes in easy to understand language and examples how our mind works. We see how patterns are set up in childhood and why our unconscious mind runs most of our life.
Can you now see the trick now is to create new and better choices, new habits at the unconscious level to serve you better in your relationships?

This is a series of 4 short videos (all less than 5 minutes), that are designed to help you understand relationships better.
While the series uses the relationship between a couple as the focus, the principles and models equally apply between siblings, parents and children, friends and family. These principles also apply in the workplace and in business.
Part 1 – Relationship Overview
This video gives you an overview of the 4 main areas that people have the most challenges with in relationships.
Part 2 – Relationship Foundations
This video gives you an overview of the foundations that make for a Great Relationship.
As with a building, if the foundation is not strong then what is built upon the foundations will be shaky.
Part 3 – Relationship Stages
This video gives you an overview of the ideal 7 stages that people go through to enter and grow their relationship.
Often some of the earlier stages are missed which can cause problems in a relationship.
Part 4 – Relationship Phases
This video gives you an overview of the 3 main phases people go through when they are in a relationship.
While the phases are simple when you see them, often people do not take time to actually acknowledge where they are at, and take action to improve their relationship.
Recommended Books for Marriage and Relationships
Calling In The One by Katherine Woodward Thomas is a great book to set you up for having the relationship you are desiring. You can use this book to work on your self to clear past relationship baggage and to get clear on the relationship you are longing for..
5 Love Languages by Dr Gary Chapman is a great starting place to answer the question “How do you know I love you?”
Loving and feeling loved is one of our most important needs.
Relationship Strategies by John G. Kappas, Ph.D. gives all the details describing what I refer to as the Head and the Heart model.
In the book, the Heart person is referred to as the Physical or Phys and
the Head person is referred to as the Emotional or Emo.
Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B Rosenberg gives the detail for his body of work referred commonly as NVC.
This is the model I use for authentic communication that cuts through a lot of the crap that occurs with communication between people..
Don’t Be Nice Be Real by Kelly Bryson is another great book that helps understand and use Nonviolent Communication (NVC).
The Prophet by Kahil Gibran is a classic. It has a wonderful philosophy and way for you to look at life. On a personal note this book was my best companion when my marriage fell apart. There are great chapters on Love, Marriage, and Children for starters.
First Steps by Christine Western is a great book at the other end of relationships – when they end.
When people have read the book and visited Christine’s website, some people take a good look at their relationships and start doing some work on it. Feel free to contact me……. to be sure to be sure your relationship is really over.
For others it is too late and this books helps with the separation process. Ideally people can keep it as much out of the courts as possible and work collaboratively for the best of everybody.
