Here’s what people are saying about Kindred
“When I signed my husband and myself up for Kindred’s communication workshop, things were looking incredibly bleak. We had 3 kids in 3.5 years, our oldest was now 5, and our relationship had been pared down to sitting beside eachother on the couch, looking at our own screens and not talking at all, after the kids had gone to bed. All of our conversations turned into arguments. Neither of us were happy, me full of resentment and him holding on to the thought that one day the kids would be older and it would be easier.
I cannot say enough about this workshop. The information presented was not only enlightening, it was also inspirational. It encouraged me to look at myself firstly; what was my role in the conflicts we kept on having?, what stories was I telling myself?, were these stories true?, were they serving me? Self reflection can be a hard pill to swallow but I am so grateful for the non-judgemental awareness that Erin and Amanda brought to these issues.
The simple breakout activities that we participated in were not only interesting, they were fun! My husband and I haven’t spoken that much for I don’t even know how long! And it made us both realize that there is a person under the 8-6 job and beneath the food-crusted clothes of the stay at home mom. There is a person there with interests and hopes and dreams and fears. Things that I think we’d forgotten about ourselves! Our interest in eachother was renewed, and it uncovered a desire to get to know eachother once again and find out who we are now and who we might become.
I am so grateful for the tools that we learned to communicate effectively with. Our conversations aren’t all conflicts now, and we can both safely feel heard, or safely say that we need to come back to this with a genuine intention to.
The small investment in this workshop is so worth it as it really is an investment in a renewed partnership.”
“My Husband and I were simply dazzled last night at the seminar. We both learned so much and it was just what we needed, just at the exact right time in our marriage. Thank you so much”
“My husband and I have seen several counsellors in the past year. None of them worked for us. We would always go in asking for better communication tools and their model of Counselling was more of a sit and hash shit out with one another to validate both sides, which never resolved anything and in fact made matters worse at some points. We took this course recently and were pleasantly surprised that instead of the common sit and hash it out technique we were presented with the most common struggles in relationships and how they can be detrimental to the union. Not only did they outline the unhealthy behavior but they gave amazing tools and ways of rewording things in times of conflict and high emotions so that we both feel heard and understood without feeling like our relationship’s attachment is being threatened. This course has literally saved our marriage by giving us what we need to be healthy again as we were separated for the past 6 months prior to taking it but still very much in love. ”
“I can’t speak highly enough about it! Definitely worth the time and the money to take this amazing course with these lovely ladies.”
“Communication is extremely difficult for my partner and neither of us had any idea he was feeling “flooded” during many of our important conversations. Being flooded was a term we’d learned and has opened so many doors to understanding for us and why much of the communication around certain topics was hard for him. We got clear examples of common issues, the 4 horseman in a relationship and what is needed for a healthy relationship. We really thought they both did a great job of explaining concepts, explaining how and why they tied together as well as why they were important. I would highly recommend the workshops”
