Jim Byrne has helped dozens of couples to overcome their emotional, behavioural and relationship difficulties, and to
learn to communicate more effectively with each other. In the process they got very much better lives than they had
had previously. A recent example was the woman who wrote to say:
"Thanks for all your help,
Jim. Things are now going very much better for us. When conflicts and tensions do arise, we are now able to deal
with them quickly and effectively. After a recent setback, we emerged very strong and are feeling much more secure in
our relationship. We still practice what we learned from you.
13 – Couples therapy: How to improve your sex-love relationship, by Dr Jim Byrne, Doctor of Counselling
Do you need help
with your romantic relationship?
Are you experiencing unhappiness in your marriage or couple relationship? Are you looking for
relief from the stress of a relationship that is not working as well as it used to? Do you crave a loving relationship,
but find yourself involved in irresolvable conflict and misery?
What can I do to help?
I am a Doctor of Counselling with more than 15 years experience
of helping couples to improve their relationships, and to lead a happy, married or co-habiting life. A recent couple
gave me this feedback:
“Every time we come to see you, our relationship gets better and better; and now we have reached
a plateau which is so much better than the place we were at when we first came to see you. We are so much happier”.
They had no idea what
it was that I did to bring about this healing of their relationship problems; and all I know is it has something to do with
what I teach: models, principles and rules of relationships. The skills required to live happily together!
And now I want to make
those solutions available to you.
Teaching the client about the nature of love is one of the most difficult challenges a counsellor
faces: “There are no short-cuts to
understanding what love is. If someone has been deprived of the crudest infantile experience of love then he might be
permanently crippled or, at least, have great difficulty in learning later what the word can mean. In learning what
it symbolizes, I need to re-write my autobiography over and over again. To grow is to re-organize the past now
and to move into the future”.
Robert F. Hobson, Forms of Feeling: The heart of psychotherapy, Page 212. (25)
love yourself enough to give yourself this gift?

of relationship, without ever coming to see me. You can get all this helpful and healing learning from studying my web

able to look up the problem you are having – on my web page – and see the answer to your problem, spelled out
in simple, clear detail? What to do; how to do it; and why it is important to do it.

Beyond the need to avoid the negative emotions of anger, hatred, unhealthy jealousy, and so on, it is argued by Dr
Erich Fromm, a famous psychoanalyst, that the art of loving is based upon four key principles,
which include: Care, respect and responsibility. Based on this definition, you could train yourself
to remember to ask yourself:
# Do I care for my partner? Do I show by my words
and actions that I care for my partner? Does my partner clearly feel cared for by
me (as revealed by their words and actions)?
# Do I respect my partner?
Do I show by my words and actions that I respect my partner? Does my partner clearly feel
respected by me (as shown by their words and actions)?
# Do I take responsibility for my
side of my sex-love relationship? Do I show by my words and actions that I
am an actively responsible (rather than passively irresponsible) partner? Does my partner
clearly feel/believe that I am taking an equal, joint responsibility for
our relationship (as shown by their words and actions)?
