Five books all couples should read

One: The 5 Love Languages by Dr Gary Chapman.  I recommend this if you want to find out about his proven approach to showing and receiving love which will help you experience deeper and richer levels of intimacy with your partner. There are exercises  in the book to find out what your primary and secondary languages are.

Two: Mating in Captivity by Esther Perel. I recommend this if you’d like to think outside the box about desire and intimacy, she will challenge you to view relationships in a completely different way.

Three: Getting the Love you Want by Dr Harville Hendrix. I recommend this if you would like to create a loving, supportive and revitalised partnership. There are exercises in the book that you can try with your partner or with a couple therapist.

Four:  Hold me Tight by Dr Sue Johnson. I recommend this if you want to learn how to diffuse conflicts, create a safe emotional connection, and strengthen bonds between you and your partner.

Five: Passionate Marriage by Dr David Schnarch. I recommend this if you want to know how to keep passion alive and reach the height of sexual and emotional fulfilment.
