Crash courses are immersive, instantly-accessible online programs that tackle specific marriage problems (i.e. infidelity, inappropriate friendships, apathetic marriages, midlife crises, etc.). They were created by marriage author and conflict specialist Debra Macleod, B.A., LL.B. as a practical alternative to couples counselling and as a way for spouses to obtain marriage-saving guidance (i.e. insights and strategies) as quickly and conveniently as possible. They are designed for individual spouses who are working alone or taking the initiative to save their marriage, particularly if the other partner is being unfaithful, uncooperative or apathetic.
Each course includes an on-demand audio component (mp3) and audio with calming video (mp4) component conveniently divided into three parts according to its subject matter and topics. The audio-only and audio with video components contain the same information; however, this dual format gives you the option of streaming audio “on the go” or watching / listening at home as you work through the accompanying materials. Courses are user-friendly and can be accessed from almost any device (i.e. cell phone, tablet, computer, etc.).
Each course also comes with an excellent three-part (PDF) program supplement (workbook, review tool, action plan) and a variety of relevant multimedia supporting material – from recorded client Q&A’s to printable relationship “lifelines” – that is regularly updated. While the core audio or audio/video content of a course can stand alone, many people find the supplement / workbook and supporting material helpful in terms of implementing or complementing the course’s content.
You can access your course as many times as you like for a one-year period from the date of enrollment. This gives you ample time to implement and review its insights and strategies, and to revisit the course if your problem recurs. Many course-takers will regularly re-listen to certain parts of the course to remain clearly focused on what is happening and what must be done. Your year-long access also allows you to take advantage of new supplementary material that may be added over the term of your enrollment.
After you purchase a course, you simply sign-in to your online account and click on the part of the course you want to access or re-access. When you enroll in a course, you will receive a “getting started” email that offers a number of tips to ensure your listener and learner experience is as enjoyable as possible. There is no faster, easier or more affordable way to receive the high-quality, innovative relationship help that your marriage deserves.

Many years of education, training, research and experience have gone into my courses. I take pride in providing a world-class, worldwide product to help you overcome the problems you are facing in your marriage, and I believe my insights and strategies will give you the best possible shot at doing that; however, I cannot “guarantee” to save your marriage. No credible practitioner would guarantee to save a marriage that is already struggling with the higher-conflict issues that my practice specifically tackles. What I can tell you is that my practice flourishes on word-of-mouth referrals from happy clients and receives wonderful feedback from course-takers around the world.
I sure hope so! Because if you’re here, obviously what they’ve advised isn’t working. I pride myself on offering clients and course-takers a perspective and product that stands apart from the ordinary, rather than one that blends into it.
Instead of falling back on theories or vague advice, I provide usable insights and precise, sometimes unconventional strategies that bulls-eye the problems and behaviors you are seeing. That’s why I offer issue-specific courses – you need targeted information and ideas to tackle the challenges that typically attend affairs, inappropriate friendships, midlife crises, etc. My goal isn’t to prolong your problems so that I can book more sessions – it’s to help you move past your problems in a purposeful way, and to get on with life as quickly as possible. The insights and strategies I provide in my crash courses are the ones that have been the most useful and effective for my clients over the years.
My “hard” background in law and couples mediation, balanced with my “softer” approach as a marriage/intimacy author and relationship coach makes my method, and the way I deliver it, unique in this business. I don’t patronize, I don’t slow-talk, I don’t surprise you with unexpected religious content and I don’t fall back on fluffy advice. If you’re ready to empower yourself and do what you can to save your marriage, my goal is to provide you with the tools to do that in a relevant, real-world way. You can learn more about me on the About Debra page.
For example, the Overcoming Infidelity // For Betrayed Spouses course should only be taken by the betrayed spouse – that is who the content is specifically written for, and it can be counter-productive for the other partner to receive this content (remember, your course is your “secret weapon” in the fight for your marriage). If the spouse who committed the infidelity wishes to participate, he/she should take the Overcoming Infidelity // For Spouses Who Stray course; however, he/she must take the initiative to do this without pressure (or pleading) from you. You should never pressure a reluctant spouse to participate. That will backfire every single time. You are better off to focus on your own course and, if you need more help, to book a telephone session with me to decide how to handle your uncooperative or unfaithful spouse.
The only exception to this “one spouse” rule is the Stop “Fighting” to Get Along // For Individuals & Couples course: this course can be used by one spouse working alone or by both spouses, if they feel the material is relevant to both of them. If you do both choose to take this course, however, I still recommend you take turns listening to it instead of listening together. A solo approach tends to foster a more open-minded, less defensive mood.
That’s up to you. Do you want to accept it or do you want to try something else? I do not offer “scammy” guarantees that my courses will save your marriage. What I can tell you is that the insights and strategies you will hear in my course can be used, and used effectively, at any stage of the separation process. I can also tell you that they are significantly less costly than a divorce. I wish you luck, but I’m afraid that’s all I can say. I provide an excellent product that has turned countless marriages around; however, I do not offer grandiose promises to people who are already struggling in their lives.
I consult with clients on a one-on-one basis via telephone sessions. If by chance you and your spouse are doing this together, I will speak with each of you during separate appointments: that is how my style of marital conflict resolution works. This allows me to a) assess the situation in the fastest and most straightforward way and b) offer tailored suggestions to each partner so that they can each do their part and work “as a team” to save the relationship.
In most instances, however, I am working only with one partner – the one who is taking the initiative to improve the marriage. Reaching out for help on your own is much more effective than forcing, threatening or begging an unwilling spouse to participate. There is much you can learn and much you can try on your own to initiate a positive change.
If you think you missed my call, please email me directly at email@example.com. If there is sufficient time left to have the appointment, or if I happen to have some extra time that day, we may be able to make it work; however, 48 hours cancellation notice is required for a refund.
If you did enter everything correctly, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I don’t respond within a few minutes, it may be that I’ve been abducted by aliens…or more likely, that some unforeseen happenstance has come up (i.e. power outage, personal emergency, etc.). If that is the case, please know that I will be in touch as soon as I possibly can via email or phone to offer my sincere apologies and your options to reschedule or receive a refund. Be assured that I only cancel appointments if absolutely necessary: I know you have arranged your schedule around this appointment, and I respect your time and efforts.
