Stop “Fighting” to Get Along // For Individuals & Couples

An Online “Crash Course” Available in the USA & Canada

Stop fighting to get alongIf your marriage is struggling, don’t waste weeks on a counselor’s couch pointing fingers or digging up the past. Start listening now, from any device, to my online audio/multimedia crash course. It gives you the powerful insights and strategies you need to become lovers, not fighters!

Does your marriage ever feel like a battle zone? Maybe there are open hostilities or maybe it’s more of a cold war situation. Maybe you’re sick of walking on eggshells, having the same argument all the time or just not communicating. Maybe there are personality traits that you need to address, from defensiveness and short fuses to negativity and a streak of narcissism (among other things), that are preventing you from seeing each other at your best instead of your worst. Maybe intimacy is fading. After all, if things are frosty outside the bedroom, they’re going to cool off inside it, too.

Stop “Fighting” to Get Along can help you tear down the entrenched behaviors that have been sucking the life and love out of your marriage, and rebuild your marriage on the foundation of a romantic friendship. One filled with affection, comfort and happy stability for you, your spouse and your family. It used to take me months of office sessions to help a spouse turn things around like this; however, this program lets me do that for you in a matter of hours.

This course can change the course of your marriage. After many years as a marriage author and conflict specialist, I am confident in my no-nonsense method.

That’s why you’ll find the program’s audio intro below. It walks you through the specifics of what this course covers – you’ll see it is indispensable. You’ll also find testimonials from real course-takers here. These are people just like you who went from frustrated to fabulous.

Listen to the audio anytime, anywhere. Also includes video, print materials and other supplementary content.

Take your “sessions” with me on the go as you listen in the car from your mobile phone.  Or watch the calming video at a coffeehouse or at home as you listen and work your way through the workbook and other supporting material.

We went through counselling, coaching, therapy and a really, really creepy couples retreat. That’s how desperate we were to stop fighting and just feel a glimmer of love or hope again. I cried at the end of this program. Not because it was bad but because it left me thinking, “I am not going to let one more day go by fighting with this person that I love more than anything.” You were the ONLY person that showed me how to do that instead of just throwing irrelevant theories or vapid love quotes at me. – Kristen, Victoria, BC



Contains over 6 hours of intensive audio guidance plus a variety of multimedia supporting content (video, workbook and print materials, Q&A’s, etc.). COST: $275.00 USD  ** Available only in the United States & Canada **

This empowering, effective program is worth thousands of dollars in private sessions with leading marriage author and conflict specialist Debra Macleod, B.A., LL.B. It can be streamed from any device: cell phone, computer, tablet. Many marriages end in divorce because people either hesitate to get help or don’t know what to do when their spouse won’t participate; however, with this online course, getting top-tier help has never been more accessible, convenient or affordable. Course enrollment is for a one-year period.

I could weep when I think of how many years we WASTED fighting about bullshit nothingness. This hit every single nail on its head. Bang. Bang. Bang. It made absolute and total sense from the first word to the last word. I really love the way you simplified what I’m sure are some very complicated strategies and showed us how to just slip them right into the marriage, like they’d always been there. Just beautiful. – Carter, Kodiak, AK

You delivered some really ugly messages with equal parts cold truth and warmth. You took the gloves off but I knew you were fighting for us the whole time. – Arpita, London, ON

How Is This Course Unique?

I designed this program to appeal to even the most defensive of people – its content and convenient, non-confrontational delivery can help challenging personality types remain open-minded and willing to look at themselves. In fact, this may be the only way some people can be reached. But even if your partner won’t participate, take heart. You have the power to create huge changes on your own and this crash course can show you how.

There are other resources out there that claim to improve communication, interactions and intimacy in marriage; however, unlike other practitioners, I do not talk “around” issues or fall back on general theory to avoid offering real help.  Rather, I tackle issues head on and I provide precise, practical suggestions.  Thanks to my training / experience with higher-conflict marriage issues, I am qualified to do so. I specialize in communication, interpersonal dynamics and conflict resolution within marriage, and I can teach you how to manage your marriage problems like a pro.

Unfortunately, most counselors and relationship coaches have little or no real world training or experience working with couples, and most are unable to manage emotional or intense situations while still balancing the needs and perspectives of two people.  And if they can’t do it themselves, there’s no way they can teach you to do it.  Yet to have a marriage that thrives, that balancing act must be done – and I can show you how to master it.

Deb, we each put in an earbud and listened to the course in one day. Every time we thought, “Maybe we should turn it off now,” you’d say something else that hit home and we couldn’t stop listening. We hung on every word. It was EXACTLY what we needed to hear (although not always easy to hear). It saved our ten-year marriage, it saved our family and it saved our sanity. – Mikel, Los Osos, CA

And all this time I thought my husband was the ass and the person doing everything wrong. Imagine my surprise to learn that I was just as bad! Thanks for the wake-up call, Deb, and for showing me how to dig my marriage out of the hole we’d thrown it into. XOXO – Michelle, Chicago, IL

You should be sitting on a mountain top somewhere wearing a robe and handing out this info on a golden platter. But I suppose a streaming mp3 will do. – Ryan, Santa Fe, NM
