One final step
But, it's important to never become complacent. As time goes by, we can get a bit too settled in our day-to-day that we forget to take time to truly appreciate our spouses and celebrate our lives together. The wedding may be over, but the celebration of your love never needs to end.
The good news is that it doesn’t take much to show our partners just how much they mean to us - ask about their day, make them a favourite meal, help out with a chore when you know they’re stressed, let them choose what to watch on Netflix (even if you really are not interested).
We, as humans, don’t need grand gestures, although they are nice, we need to feel connected, valued, and understood. So, make it a priority to spend time with your partner.
You may live together, but are you really living together? Have a date night - make it consistent, find a hobby you love to do together, plan a trip and get excited for the future. The options are endless and so fun to explore together.
Most importantly - be together. Check in regularly to make sure you and your partner are on the same track, identify any lingering issues, and resolve them immediately.
Always remember that conflict is an opportunity to strengthen your relationship, so, before any small differences or arguments grow into something damaging, connect with your spouse and tackle these issues head on.

Hi, I'm Erika
For over 20 years I have been providing relationship coaching and counselling to couples who have faced every challenge possible, be it infidelity, illness, trauma, financial stressors, or simply just not getting along. My motivation is knowing that intense, pure love is at the heart of each and every one of those relationships and that by making simple changes and following a few guiding principles, love can be restored to greatness and made even better than before. Dreams do come true. I know this, I’ve seen it happen with my clients, and I’ve made it happen for myself.
What People say
I’m so thankful to have happened across Erika in a difficult season. She brought life and warmth to every conversation and showed genuine care.
Since then Erika has also coached me in my personal relationship and she has helped me realize who I am and what I need in a life partner.
There are many wonderful coaches - truly helpful and amazing people, but Erika belongs in a very small subset of that group: the rare and magical coaches. I never thought that I would need a life coach, but she saved my life!
