Dr. Cochrane’s newly updated relationship book draws upon his 36 years in clinical practice working with couples from all walks of life. This clinically refined handbook is for readers who are willing to identify and address their own intimacy-eroding characteristics while respecting that, for both partners, these problematic characteristics are usually self-protective. They certainly protect us from getting hurt, again, but in so doing, they also “protect” us from trust, intimacy and fulfillment.
Relationship research continues to show that loving couples are healthier, happier and live longer than those who are not in life-enhancing relationships. This newly updated, innovative e-book gives you and your partner the research-validated principles common to loving relationships and the clinically refined tools and case illustrations that will enable you to build your own loving and life-enhancing relationship. You will learn how to stay present emotionally; how to identify and address your own intimacy impediments; how to communicate authentically and empathically and how to trust wisely.
The key principles from this practical and highly informative book were recently published in the journal of the B.C, Medical Association and in the journal of the B.C Trial Lawyers Association.

People who excel in sports, or in any other high-performance realm, understand what it takes to be successful. Most however, did not initially appreciate what it takes, but they chose to hang in there until they learned. The fundamentals of what they learned constitute the central theme of this book. The book begins with an extended metaphor of a forty-story apartment building. You can choose to live on any floor you wish. Of course, the views are great from the fortieth floor where Olympians live, but this building has no elevator. How high do you want to go? How good do you want to be?
You will find that the tools, information and case illustrations in this book will be very helpful in your sports endeavours whether you want to do well on the fifth floor, the twenty-fifth floor, or at the very top of the building.
You will also find, in this book, that your self-worth is the foundation upon which you construct your life, both in and out of the sports world. When you know that you are a person of worth, you can give your full attention to the undertakings that are important to you because you know that as important as your sports achievements are, they do not define you. When you know that you are a person of worth, independent of the floor you aspire to reach, you will be free to be the best you can be.
