The Relationship Training Community

Community and practice were the missing ingredients that transformed my marriage.

I had been reading, journaling and meditating about relationships. I gained understanding and perspective. However, everyday I fell short of my own expectations. I was lonely, and as usual, had tried to do it all on my own.

When I finally signed up for monthly community calls I was doubtful. It took courage and a leap of faith. It was the beginning of a drastic change of atmosphere in my house: Playfulness, intimacy, laughter and gratitude returned.

Community Workshop 2018

This is why my colleague Jolandé Heppell and I offer a practice community today.

Relationship transformation needs (1) information, (2) community and (3) practice. Not one, but all three. So join us in our private training community and bring your relationships to the next level!

Here is what we offer

  1. Two monthly calls: knowledge, community, practice.
    Call times: Generally every second Thursday of the month at 20-21h CET and every last Monday of the month at 9-10h CET.
  2. Accountability, support, challenge.
  3. Call recordings.
  4. Private facebook community.
  5. Practice partners for practice calls (one on one).
  6. Instructions for partner calls.
  7. Tool documents (step by step summaries).
  8. 25% off of our live events and all future courses.
  9. 25% off when hiring either Daxe or Jolandé as an individual or couple coach.

Take a leap of faith and join our practice community, meeting real people and taking the first step toward transformation. We open up our private Relationship Training Community for new members in May 2020.

Check out Richard’s story, who is one of our RTC pioneers:

“My wife and I had been together for 6 or 7 years when our honeymoon period ended. The relationship was strained, arguments more frequent, and our love became overwhelmed by stress and “you don’t….”. We did two years of marriage therapy, and I had been learning from the Relationship School podcasts, and trying to “do the work”. We separated and prepared for an angry, dirty divorce, which, finally, we negotiated into a loving, and very different relationship in which we found ourselves comfortable and able to love again without “history” getting in the way.
This success was due to many things, but, for me, the most significant was the Relationship Training Community which allowed me to put the theory I learned in Relationship School podcasts into practice by discussing, being challenged, and practicing the tools with my peers. I am convinced that without the Relationship Training Community experience I would have spent tens of thousands of euros on divorce, selling my home, and recreating a new relationship with the same old (bad) foundations. The tiny financial investment I made in the Relationship Training Community program, with the huge emotional investment, really did change my relationship, myself, and how I see the world.”

Here is what our members say

“The relationship  training group came for me in a time when I really needed support to navigate one of the biggest conflicts my husband and I have had to handle in our relationship. We came out the other end. Certainly it helped to have a group where I was able to be heard and seen. Thank you so much for that. In my personal development there is still a lot to work on but I feel I am a little more aware of my needs and set boundaries and ask for what I need faster so I can avoid conflict. Big thank you! Hope to make the next round!”


“I have an attitude to help people. The drawback is that I put the needs of others before mine. Since I have been in this community I started to advocate for my needs, for example by finally talking about our money spending with my wife and planning together (I wanted to do that since years).

I was also able to set a boundary with my daughter, which was bringing up a lot of shame in me. What was important to me is to feel safe in this community and this allowed me to practice (and making mistakes in a safe environment helped me a lot).

Being around like minded people, also actively engaging in improving their relational skills is incredibly motivating for me. My gratitude goes to you Daxe and Jolandé and I’m looking forward to the next cycle of training led by you.”

– Alexander

“It started with the conflict workshop in Switzerland and for me that was an incredible positive experience because I felt so connected with the rest of the group and Daxe lead with utter competenceempathy and humor. After that I signed up (…) and had some practice calls and my experience was again very positive. Practicing makes a difference and I also learned being challenged in the right way makes a difference. Being in this group gave me a sense of belonging, of being heard and seen and I also learned a lot from the sharing of issues by the others. I felt less alone and I felt this is a place I can go back to and be understood and it also encourages me to look for solutions within myself. To learn how to respond in different ways and how to regulate my emotions. The latter was mostly important to me and my relationship as I had noticed that most problems escalated because I didn’t know how to express myself differently and yet at the same time acknowledge and not neglect my own feelings. (…). There is still so much to learn and knowing I have this group to go to and learn with and not being judged negatively is a great comfort and relief. I am looking forward to continue the journey with you all. Big thank you to Daxe and Jolandé for making this possible and being such great guides along the way.”
