STORIES FROM THE COUPLES I'VE MET
I recommend Louis and his intensive Marriage Restoration workshop extremely highly. After 20 years of marriage, I couldn’t see how any 2 day session would fundamentally change the dynamics of our relationship, but it did. The workshop reconfirmed and strengthened our love for one another, and showed us so much about ourselves and our relationship. It forced us to re-examine what we each individually brought to the marriage and how our past had trapped us in unhealthy patterns. The experience for me was like lifting a fog, I could suddenly see things I’d never really seen before, I suddenly saw how beautiful my marriage really was.
I also must commend Louis on his facilitation. He was kind and compassionate, supporting us when we faced difficult emotional topics, but he was also firm in guiding us to places we were very uncomfortable. I found working with him to be an excellent experience.
Don’t miss this chance to change your marriage for the better. Give Louis a call.
Nothing could have ever prepared me for the reality of getting a divorce. When my wife left me for a third party I have never in my life experienced more sorrow, loneliness, a feeling of total rejection and my self-esteem was at an all-time low. Reality struck sitting on my bed looking at my ex-wife’s empty cupboard the day she left. My “purpose for living”, the love of my life and my children was gone. I was a broken man and so alone. And then the realisation that you must be strong for your two beautiful children who deserved none of the heartbreak that is part and parcel of any breakup.
Louis helped me to accept what is, with compassion and true empathy for my situation. The importance of a new civil and respectable relationship with my ex-wife, for the sake of our children. But most important he gave me new perspective on life and my perceived reality. That I am “good enough” I am “not alone” but loved by so many people. He helped me identify my biggest fears worked on my self-believe and made me realise that I have lost myself, my needs and voice in my marriage.
Today, fourteen months later, I live with more aliveness, happiness and self-confidence than in a very long time. Furthermore, my relationship and connection with my children has never been better. Thank you, can never describe how grateful I am towards Louis for his influence in helping me to change my life.
I would recommend Couples Help to ANYONE and EVERYONE who are in or entering into marriage. My husband and I attended the two day programme and I can honestly say that it has given us such a deep understanding on what it means to have intimacy and connection in a marriage. Before I attended this programme I would have laughed at anyone who told me that two people could love each other into wholeness. What makes Couples Help so special is that its tailored specifically to your needs whether you are a couple who is in desperate need of saving a broken marriage or if you are looking to deepen your connection and learn more about each other.
The last year before our marriage, actually since we moved in together, our relationship got strained. We could not understand what was happening, we should be more in love and more connected. We tried dating, more sex, listening to podcasts talking to our parents, it did not help. We became fearful of our future. We believed that both of us are damaged goods and incapable of doing this thing called marriage! The Art of Loving helped us to transform and grow in ways we would forever be thankful. The day of our marriage was beautiful, our Honeymoon an adventure and every day thereafter a journey into a life connected.
Noel & Marry
Both of us come from divorced backgrounds, we understand the pain of affair and breakup. We did not want that for us. More than ever we feel armored and ready to take control of our love story. Fear for our future was replaced with excitement and competency.

My husband of 3 years and I found ourselves in major disconnection and without understanding the sources of it. We went about our relationship in a vicious cycle of neglect, detachment , frustration, explosive fights and yet stayed in it because we loved and cared for each other. We hoped it would get better or resolved by itself. We found ourselves at odds as one of us wanted out and the other didn’t and we began to resent each other , and hurt each other more deeply as we could not resolve the situation or make sense of what was happening. We called Louis after he was recommended to us by a friend and a very intense and amazing journey began. Louis was able to help us understand where we were in our marriage and the processes we have done in getting us there , as well as the challenges and growth needed To help us get past it. He really helped us understand ourselves and our actions towards each other , to understand how we got there and why. With such great insight and understanding of ourselves we were able to come to our realization of our marriage and ourselves in a calm manner and from a place of love and kindness. I strongly believe we would have not been able to come to accept our situation without animosity and deeply hurting each other unnecessarily without the guidance, clarity and superb counselling method by Louis. I sincerely recommend Louis to any and every couple who finds themselves in a situation where they are struggling.
I love that he brings truth and clarity to the couple and allows them to then make decisions from that place. We are very grateful to have had him take us on this life-changing journey.
Wow wow wow. We never knew, and now that we know we do, and since we do we enjoy, love, understand and dream our biggest dream!
