Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Do I have to take this course with my partner?
No! While the courses are built to be most effective by taking the course as a couple, it's not required. Our model is based on direct, face-to-face communication, and we often see that couples who share an equal commitment to engaging the process get the most from our courses. However, we believe that when even one person in a relationship commits to developing skills and strategies to strengthen the connection with their partner, it can pay huge relational dividends.
Should I use this course instead of going to traditional relationship therapy or marriage counseling?
This course is not a replacement for couples counseling or therapy. It is designed to be used as a complement alongside traditional therapy, or by couples who are seeking to proactively develop the skills and strategies to make their good relationships great.
Why should I choose this online course instead of a face-to-face program?
We're here for you 24/7, whether you're at home or on the go. With online courses you have the freedom to proceed at your own pace, and you can go back and review previous content at any time. The course has been created in a logical sequence but crafted to be accessible in any order - start at the beginning or dive right in to the section that interests you the most!
