Power Tactics in Relationships
As the drugs which flooded our brains disappear, we see something in our partner that scares us.. It’s like the Wizard of Oz where Dorothy pulls back the curtain. The curtain is pulled back and we experience shock and denial. We bargain and we get angry. That is grief running through us. We begin to lose that loving feeling. We feel like something is dying inside of us. When we’re angry that our partner has changed (according to us), we resort to power tactics.

“My approach towards couples is oriented not only towards solving the problems the couple is facing, but to revive the feeling of love and affection they have towards each other.”
INVEST IN YOUR LOVE
A relationship goes through numerous phases during its life cycle, and it’s obvious for it to have a few rough patches. The strength of a relationship is reflected in how couples deal with the rough patches and move ahead.
