INSTANT ADVICE ON ANY DEVICE
If your spouse has broken your trust by having an affair, and especially if they are being uncooperative or ambivalent, it is time for you to stop crying, arguing or pleading with them to step up. Instead, start listening to this indispensable program. Whether it’s your starting point or your last ditch effort, it provides urgent, usable and at times unconventional advice that can pull you off the dead-end path an affair has put you on.
Has your husband said “I love you, but I’m not in love with you?” Is he self-indulgent, unfaithful or manipulative? If so, stop crying, questioning, and analyzing him. Stop assuming he will spontaneously “come around” on his own. Instead, start listening to this essential program. It provides clear and at times unconventional advice to help you manage this turmoil in a way that can regain his love and maintain your dignity.
If you feel like there are three people in your marriage, you need to stop worrying, speculating and having pointless arguments about it. Your spouse isn’t listening, and you’re only increasing the distance between you. Instead, start listening to this one-of-a-kind program. Its intensive guidance and step-by-step approach can help you navigate and overcome this problem before it develops into a full-scale affair.
It isn’t just the “big things” like infidelity that can hurt a marriage. The little things – bickering, negativity or criticism – can also chip away at a relationship until it collapses. And then there are the unpleasant personality traits we all bring to marriage in different degrees – defensiveness, self-focus and so on. This highly usable program can help you manage these issues so that you can be lovers, not fighters!
Do you feel like your spouse has lost their passion for you? Are you tired of feeling unwanted, bored or afraid it’s over? If you feel your marriage is fading, don’t give up! This enjoyable program offers bonding, creative strategies to restore the vibrancy in your marriage, and re-spark your spouse’s affection for you. It can be used alone or alongside / after another of Debra’s programs for holistic marriage repair.
Do you obsess about your marriage problems? Do you over-analyze your spouse? Do you let your emotions run the show, even to your own detriment? Of course you do – you’re human! This empowering program can help you get a grip on your thoughts and behaviors, and is often used to support people as they work through one of Debra’s larger programs (eg. Overcoming Infidelity, Conquer His Midlife Crisis).
From the first word to the last, I felt like you reached into the chaos of my marriage, sat me down and said, “Now listen up, sweetheart, this is what you’re going to do.” And yes, that has made a massive change – for the better – in the way my husband treats me and the choices he is making. I truly thank you. – Cara, Troy, AL
TALK TO ME, ONE-ON-ONE
“From problematic opposite-sex friendships to full-scale affairs, from midlife crises to a loss of intimacy, from arguing to apathy and marriages on the brink of divorce – I can handle it all. Book a phone session with me for fast, focused help. Every day I talk to people just like you from their couches, desks and cars. So get a good cup of coffee, find a private place to talk and let’s figure it out. One hour can make a big difference.” – Debra Macleod, B.A., LL.B.
I can’t imagine finding a more forthright or useful course to help a person get through something like this and come out with a stronger marriage. You have a personal yet sometimes forceful tone, and I needed that. Loved the Q&A’s you included from clients, too. All those little ‘extras’ (the lifelines, What NOT to Do!!!) were so helpful. – Anika, Sacramento, CA

After my third pointless appointment with a cheap counselor, I decided that my marriage and well-being were worth taking a chance on something different – your course. Wish I would’ve taken it from Day One (the day I discovered the affair) but better late than never. You are excellent at your job, Deb, and your course is amazing. – Ana, NYC
