Have you looked under the bonnet recently?

Some feedback we had from our last ‘A Day Together’ event: “A great day to make time for each other. A much needed MOT” and someone else wrote “Great opportunity to look under the bonnet and see how you’re really doing in your marriage”.

How full is your “love tank”?

A time for hope?

Spring is in the air and ‘Hope’ seems to be the word for A Day Together in Cambridge on Saturday 11th March.

The rewards of courage

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” Brene Brown That is what 34 couples did on a cold Saturday in January. They showed up, not sure what to expect, to a couple’s seminar at All Souls in London. Some had travelled a fair distance, setting off early to arrive for a 10 […]
