“Tell me what’s on your mind and I will hear you, tell me how you feel and I will know you.”

What being a BraveCouple is all about.
BraveCouples know the value of carving out time to have courageous conversations about the past, the present, and the future. Often the thing we need in a relationship lies just beyond a conversation we have not yet had.
BraveCouples know when it’s time to let go of the stories, questions, resentments, and competition so they can begin to reimagine and reinvent what it means to be in a relationship with each other.
BraveCouples know the value of carving out an identity of self outside of their intimate relationship. This inspires an energy of wanting to be together in life rather than needing to be together.
Is it right for us?
BraveCouple is about becoming stronger as a couple.
In these times of uncertainty and heightened stress it is easy for our partner to bare the brunt of our frustrations. The enforced time together, for some, is a challenge and can test even the most solid partnership.
BraveCouple Online is an opportunity to set some time aside for your relationship. It’s a chance to pivot the conversation from fear and blame to hope and growth.
