You're ready... to once again feel close and connected to the one you care about the most

I know it can feel frustrating when...

You just don't know how to talk to each other
  • You and your partner have been growing apart

  • Parenting together is a constant struggle

  • Asking for help feels so hard that you just stay quiet

  • When you try to talk you don’t feel supported and heard

  • No matter what one of you says, the other feels annoyed

Learn effective communication strategies to get your relationship back on the right track.

Remember

the excitement you felt when you were first getting to know each other?

The hopes and dreams you had for lives intertwined. The visions of a happy future together, content in hearing each other’s loving voices as you murmured good night and good morning every day, lighting up at the glimpse of your partner’s smiling face across the room, racing home after work knowing your special person was waiting for you, the warm comfort of each other’s scent as years turned into decades of closeness, the loving embrace and familiar touch strengthening your intimacy through good times and bad...

But now things have changed. This is not the way you ever wanted to feel...

After years of working hard on careers and family, side by side, you’re now feeling lonely and disconnected. You thought you were building a life together, and it’s scary to feel like strangers, living separate lives, in the same house.

You don’t know how to talk about important issues and different opinions. You dread every conversation. You feel alone in the same room with your partner.

And, you want to try. You want to do the work if it will help. You’ve looked for advice from friends, books, workshops, maybe even therapy. Perhaps you’ve learned some good stuff, but it didn’t stick and changes you've tried haven’t lasted.

In the pit of your stomach you’re scared - you don’t want to break up your family or end up alone.

But, you know it’s not healthy to go on like this…

It’s time for some relationship repair!

Now, you can get close and connected from the comfort of your own home.

Rebuild the foundation for a happier, healthier relationship.

Learn everything you need to know to start having safe, calm, clear conversations with each other again.

and the Couples Communication Institute

First of all, Congratulations.

Recognizing your relationship isn't going smoothly and valuing your partner and yourself enough to find a solution is incredibly brave.

Nobody should feel stuck and scared in their relationship, not knowing how to communicate with each other.

You want to know the right path forward to the closeness and intimacy you used to have, but you're just not sure what it is. As a Couples Psychologist, I understand how complicated that can feel. And I want you to know it's going to be okay. All is not lost!

That's why The Couples Communication Institute is here: to guide you on your healing journey, helping you rekindle your relationship so that you can make it even better than ever.

Hi, I'm Dr. Sarah Rattray, Founder & CEO of the Couples Communication Institute.

I've spent the last 30 years teaching hundreds of couples simple and effective communication tools that empower them to move forward happily in their relationships. I'd love to show you how, too.

At the Couples Communication Institute, that's what we do.

You're in the right place.

ModuleTwoImg

Always Prepare First

A little preparation goes a long way. Learn exactly what to think through before you have important conversations, including the topic, and what your goals are for your conversation (do you want to fix it, or just share?) to set yourselves up as a team for success.

ModuleThreeImg

Set-Up Conversation

Learn how to let your partner know that you appreciate them, so every conversation begins with warmth and care. You'll learn tips to set aside time to talk and choose the place, so when you're both ready to give your full attention you'll actually be able to talk through what's on your mind.

ModuleFourImage

The Calm & Focused Conversation

When you have something important to discuss, knowing how to talk so you both end up feeling seen, heard, understood, and supported, is priceless. Learn tips that nobody's taught you before, on how to listen well, with the confidence you're not misunderstanding each other.

ModuleFiveImg

Continuing Success

As you put into practice your newly-learned skills at having ONE focused conversation at a time, you'll prevent overwhelming each other when having important or even challenging conversations. You'll build the habit of prioritizing what to talk about first, so you can focus on really hearing and supporting each other, and not on what used to get in the way.

Resources-Image

Resources

To go along with the video lessons, the full 60-page e-book and worksheets help you not only be clear about what you're learning, but also stay on track and use it. And when you're done with the course, all the printed resources are available in an easy-to-use resources area.

Bonuses-Img

Bonus Guides

Seeing everything at a glance can remind you of what you've learned, when you most need to actually use it. Bonus one-page guides clearly set out each step so you can have close and connected conversations every time.

Couples Communication Made Easy is Not Therapy

In the Couples Communication Made Easy course, Dr. Sarah teaches the same tools and techniques she’s taught to her therapy clients for 30 years.

However, this course, including the Group and Private Office Hours options, is not therapy. Dr. Sarah will not help with or discuss your personal backgrounds, or your individual or relationship dynamics. You may choose that kind of deeper help by working with a licensed, practicing, couples therapist.

This online course was designed to support people who want to learn new methods of communicating in a safe, supportive way, without the need for a therapist, and it was not designed or intended to replace traditional couples therapy.

You can certainly benefit from taking this course before, during, or after couples therapy to learn, remember, and practice your communication together.

The Group or Private Office Hours options with Dr. Sarah are not therapy sessions, and are intended for the purpose of guidance and instructional support pertaining to the coursework only.

The Office Hours help you stay motivated, engaged, and moving through the course. To reach your goal of a close and connected relationship, you will  want every advantage to help you finish the course and practice what you’ve learned together.

Your questions will be answered so that you can best implement and practice what you’re learning during the initial five weeks of the course. In the following weeks, after course completion, you'll get continued answers to your questions to properly use these new communication skills to talk more effectively and grow closer in your relationship(s).

This course is NOT for you if you...

  • Aren't ready to take time to learn and practice new ways of doing things in your relationship.
  • Need the deeper help of working with a licensed, practicing, couples therapist. If you're looking for a couples therapist, find a Gottman therapist in your area.
  • Are in a relationship with domestic violence, or emotional abuse or control. If you need support, reach out to the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

 

At the crossroads...

At the crossroads...

Your relationship is at a crossroads... That's why you're here.

Is it important enough to work on it? Or, will you keep going down the unhappy road you're on now?

It's time for you to...

  • Rediscover each other’s dreams.
  • Remember what made you fall in love in the first place.
  • Turn towards each other instead of away.
  • Be seen, heard, and understood.
  • Get closer.

This is your time and your life. Would you like to begin a new chapter in your relationship? Chart a new course?

Click the "I'm Ready to Get Started" button now. Choose your Payment Plan (1 or 2 pay) and click the "Join" button at the bottom of your chosen membership package column to go right to the enrollment page. And once you've filled out your information you'll get immediate access to the course so you can start your journey to closer now, because the time is now.

Start today.

Don't wait another moment not knowing how to really communicate with your partner. Don't live another day in struggle, distance, and confusion. The support and tools you need are here, and it's here for you.

So follow your dreams.

See you inside,

- Dr. Sarah

FAQ's

Do online courses really work?

Absolutely! Online learning gives you, and your partner, the freedom to replay the videos and review each module as many times as you need to.  You actually receive more valuable content and actionable skills than you would hourly 1:1.  And, the course is clearly structured, without the constraints of appointment times. With the same tools, techniques, and proven methods that Dr. Sarah has taught clients for decades, the course will support you as long as you are motivated and willing to learn.

What if my partner doesn’t want to do the course with me?

If your partner isn’t yet on board, don’t worry. This course will support you, by yourself, or as a couple. These communication skills can be applied to any relationship in your life. By completing this course, you'll have a better idea of how to talk with your partner to ask if they might be willing to take the course with you. Then you can go through it together again, if they're open to it.

How much time do I have to commit for this course?
This course is designed to be completed in five weeks. Each video is only 2-10 minutes long. Total weekly video lessons vary in length from under 10 minutes to 45 minutes, plus time to review the e-book, worksheet, and guides, and especially to discuss and practice with your partner.  Go at your own pace and complete as much, or as little, as will support you in the moment. Plus, you’ll get access to the videos for 12 full months, so you can go back and repeat any part of the course any time you like.

How do the Open Office Hours work?

This is a supplemental option, if you choose the Semi-Guided or All Inclusive plans, with 2 available hours per week with expert Leading Psychologist Dr. Sarah in her video office (Zoom or similar). Get personalized answers to your course-specific questions, and guidance about implementing the communication skills you've been learning.  You and your partner may choose to join together (once weekly) or separately (once weekly).

How is this course different from therapy?

Couples Communication Made Easy is not designed to be a substitution for couples therapy. But, you will be learning the foundational tools and communication skills that Dr. Sarah teaches to her therapy clients, with the extra benefit of being able to review the information as many times as you need to. The course is intended to help couples improve communication.  It does not dive deep into your specific concerns, backgrounds, and family situations, and does not provide any therapy, or discussion of your personal situation, only implementation of actionable skills and proactive mindset changes.

How do I know if this course is right for me?

If you feel your partnership could benefit from improved communication, and you are motivated to improve it, then this course is right for you.

This is designed for couples and individuals who are committed to learn and follow through on the lessons and aren't in immediate need of the deep support and exploration that therapy can bring.

If you aren't willing to put in the time and attention it takes to better your relationship, or lack the motivation to self-study, this course may not be not the best option for you.

Loving words

"Dr. Sarah does an incredible job of saying what needs to be said, without overexplaining or repeating things. I really liked how the videos broke everything down into small pieces. That way, if I got interrupted, I knew the video was only three to five minutes and then it was done, so I could get up and not feel like I was stopping in the middle of something. Each step felt really doable. Couples Communication Made Easy would definitely be a resource that I would be willing to pass on to some of my clients when they're struggling with their partners in communication. It's beautiful. I really like the flow and how it works. It was just all right there."

"Dr. Sarah offers her special blend of sincere empathy and common sense guidance from a place of compassion borne of many years of professional and life experience. With her gentle inquiries and intelligent suggestions she's helped me figure out for myself what I'm needing. Dr. Sarah communicates with warmth and genuine caring, and with her often playful humor I come away feeling empowered and ready to be my best self."

Susannah Johnston

"We learned how to ask for what we need. How to explore differences and disagreements on beliefs, values, and dreams. How to discuss parenting with your co-parent. How to discuss health issues and needs. How to really listen for deep connection. Dr. Sarah breaks the process down into easy-to-understand-and-use steps. The short, easy-to-digest videos in Couples Communication Made Easy makes it easy to think about, and practice in stages. I also loved Dr. Sarah’s emphasis on emotional safety."
