Relationship Goals 2.0
What does love look like on the other side of having kids?
Relationship Goals 2.0 is a relaxed event where parents have fun together while learning about the skills and habits that keep couples happy together.
We meet in a private room above a pub, where we start with a brief talk from me. The talk is on a different theme each time, breaking down what the research tells us about how to have a great relationship.
Then you have some fun together doing an activity which is designed to be interesting, fun, and deepen your connection.
Come as a couple, with a friend or on your own. I’ll send you home with prompts to help you continue the conversation with your partner.
You can share as little or as much as you like about what becoming parents has meant for your relationship.
