Peace & Joy is a 12-step program for couples in crisis who want to transform their relationship.
Who is this program for?
This program is for you!
For you who ask yourself “what happened here?
We are supposed to love each other and instead we are in this constant war. Or as far apart as two asteroids on parallel routes without any attraction to each other?
Where is the woman or man for whom I fell in love?
Where did the passion, the friendship, the fun go?
Why doesn’t she/he understand me? Why is she/he so clumsy?
Who are disillusioned, alone and confused.
Where is the problem? Am I the one who should act differently? Is it he/she who is no longer interested? Does she/he still love me? Do I still love him/her?
You who ask yourself “is that it all?
Am I better off alone?
Is there a solution or is it too late?
Love is not enough
Many couples love each other but they are not skilled enough to make the relationship work. Yes, it is a skill… and this is good news – you can learn a skill, can’t you?
With a correct understanding of our different ways of thinking and feeling, marriage can be a source of joy, support, pleasure, and fulfilment, instead of a potential source of frustration, discouragement, worry, and embarrassment.
Maria offers couples (or individuals) in crisis a program that has been proven excellent to overcome relationship problems and find the joy and peace they need in their relationships.
Through years of helping couples understand how to get out of their crisis, she created a hugely successful program where you will work at a conscious and unconscious level.
This is a journey of discovery about yourself, your partner and your relationship
When we misunderstand ourselves and each other, we can unknowingly sabotage a great relationship.

How important is this for you?
The process of divorce is one of the most stressful events a person can experience
It is more expensive than you may think.
It is emotionally draining and sometimes traumatic.
Some children who go through a divorce have a very difficult time.
Risk of losing contact with your children
New partners can influence your children’s lives and values.
Loneliness and depression.
Health problems (it has been proved that married people live longer, are healthier and wealthier)
If you are not aware of the reasons your marriage ended there is a significant risk of old patterns being transferred to your new relationships.
Problem we can help with
Who can be helped?
Our clients came from all walks of life and backgrounds, but they all have some common characteristics:
They are in an emotionally aroused state, some feeling lost, frustrated and angry, and some feeling numb, detached and sad.
They want to know if changing their situation and transform their relationship is actually possible.
They are willing to work on themselves and learn new skills in order to rebuild their life.
They are people that finally realized that their emotional wellbeing and their relationship is more important than that expensive car, glamorous holiday or branded shoes.
They care about themselves enough to invest appropriately in their happiness and wellbeing.
They are ready to embark on a wonderful journey of discovery and amazement.
Peace & Joy program for couples is NOT:
Proving the other person wrong
Forcing the other person to change
Criticizing the other person’s character
Ignore the problems
Peace & Joy Program for Couples is:
A way to grow as a person and as a couple
Making changes to improve the relationship
Owning your own mistakes
The Peace & Joy program includes 12 sessions of 90 min each (6 individual sessions and 6 couples’ sessions).
You can pay in three small instalments.
I would like to invite you for an introductory session where we can discuss how this works, if this is the right approach for you and the wonderful possibilities this program entails. This can be face to face in Stroud or by Zoom anywhere in the world.
