How How We Love principles are incorporated

I use the quiz with both couples and singles in addressing attachment wounds and patterns. I have found the core pattern work to be very helpful for couples. I also use the How We Love our Kids principles in counselling parents. I utilize the journalling awareness worksheet and soul words to help individuals and couples unpack what they are experiencing. I find that even when only one partner is seeking help, the understandings of historical wounds and patterns is invaluable in changing the dynamics.
