The 5 Love Languages

5 Love Languages by Dr Gary Chapman

This is a great starting place to answer the questions:
How do you know I love you?
How do I know I am loved?

Loving and feeling loved is one of our most important needs. I highly recommend that parents know and demonstrate their childrens love languages. This will help them feel loved and secure.

Nonviolent Communication- A Language of Compassion

Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B Rosenberg

This book gives the detail for his body of work referred commonly as NVC.

This is the model I use when coaching and counselling individuals or couples in their relationship. Authentic communication using this structure cuts through a lot of the crap that occurs in common communication between people.

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

This book is a classic resource for you to contemplate each chapter. It has a wonderful philosophy and way for you to look at life. 

On a personal note, this book is the best companion when the marriage fell apart. There are great chapters on Love, Marriage, and Children for starters.

The First Steps through Separation and Divorce

The First Steps through Separation and Divorce: working through it piece by piece

This is a great resource when your relationship or marriage is either over or close to being over.

It gives practical grounded resources detailing all the considerations and options when you are looking to end a relationship.

When people have read the book and visited Christine’s website, some people take a good look at their relationships and start doing some work on it.

Feel free to contact me to be sure your relationship is really over.

For others, it is too late and this book helps with the separation process. Ideally, people can keep it as much out of the courts as possible and work collaboratively for the best of everybody.

Kids Who Carry Our Pain- Breaking the Cycle of Codependency for the Next Generation

Kids who carry our pain - Breaking the Cycle of Codependency for the Next Generation by Dr Robert Hemfelt & Dr Paul Warren

I know I’m codependent. What about my children?

The authors help parents and children discover the excitement of a new, interdependent relationship, thwarting the adult-child codependency cycle, giving each person the freedom to make decisions without fearing the loss of another person’s love. 

This book discusses intergenerational pain and how we pass it on to our kids. Somebody has to deal with the past, and if as parents we don’t, our kids will.

The Little Soul and the Sun- A Children's Parable

The Little Soul and the Sun by Neale Donald Walsh

The Little Soul and the Sun is a simple and powerful story that brings children a very profound truth: there is no absolute good or bad–that underneath all that happens in the world, all that we call “good” and all that we call “bad,” is love.

Your child will discover a God that she or he can love, because God is love, as are all the Little Souls who are a part of God. And perhaps parents, too, will rediscover who they really are.

The Indigo Children- The New Kids Have Arrived

The Indigo Children by Lee Carroll & Jan Tobler

This book is a must for the parents of unusually bright and active children. Indigo children are those who display a new and unusual set of psychological attributes and show a pattern of behaviour generally undocumented before.

In this groundbreaking book on the Indigo Child, international authors Lee Carroll and Jan Tober report the information of this increasingly documented and world-wide phenomenon and tell you how to identify this behavioural pattern and guide you on how you, as a parent or teacher of these children, can help them realise their amazing potential not forgetting their spiritual needs or specific health issues.

The book has great strategies to assist in parenting children.

Relationship Strategies – E&P Attraction with George Kappas

Do you know why you and your partner may be opposites in many areas?

Are you aware that it is natural for couples in a marriage or relationship to be complementary opposites and not really understand the other?

This is a link to a video that goes into what I refer to as the “Head and Heart” model.

In the video, George Kappas talks about “Emotionals” and “Physicals”.

“Physicals” = Heart centred people.
“Emotionals” = Head centred people.

After watching the video, there is a test you can do to determine the percentage of Physical (Heart) and Emotional (Head) you are.

Theory of Mind with John Melton

Do you know how your mind works? And why you have some of the challenges you have in life and relationships?

This is a link to a video that goes into what is referred to as “Theory of Mind”. This 33 minutes video describes in easy to understand language and examples of how our mind works. We see how patterns are set up in childhood and why our unconscious mind runs most of our life.

Can you see the trick now is to create new and better choices, new habits at the unconscious level to serve you better in your relationships?
