Unlock Better Communication in Relationship with Safe Conversations®

Safe Conversations® equips you with the tools to converse without criticism, hear without judgment, and bond beyond disparities.

Harville Hendrix Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt Ph.D. are internationally-respected couple’s therapists, educators, speakers, and New York Times bestselling authors. Together, they have written over 10 books with more than 4 million copies sold, including the timeless classic, Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples. In addition, Harville has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey television program 17 times!

Yet, mastering relationship communication doesn’t necessarily immunize one from relational pitfalls. Harville and Helen, like many couples, once grappled with a phase of conflict, attempting to mold each other into idealized versions. Tiffs escalated into heated debates, and blame became a recurrent theme.

Standing at the precipice of their decade-long commitment, they confronted the irony of their situation: they were training other therapists in the art of saving marriages, yet their own relationship teetered on the brink of collapse. In a bid to reclaim their bond, they embraced their own teachings on better communication in relationships.

Their commitment to “practice what they preach” brought about transformation. Through methods they’ve employed to guide countless couples, they rejuvenated their marriage, cultivating a partnership that has withstood the test of time. Their narrative cements their status as genuine experts in the realm of relationship communication.
