Money: 3 Steps to Resolving Financial Conflict
Issues about money are never about money. I learned this first hand as a former financial planner, witnessing couples passionately fight about money. Now, I work as a therapist and believe by exploring the intersection of money and psychology, we can improve our lives and relationships. In this workshop, you will learn how you end up in a negative cycle and the steps to take to resolve your financial conflict.
Sex: Navigating Differences in Desire
Take a deep dive into the most common challenges couples have with sex – sexual desire discrepancy and low/no sexual interest. You’ll learn how desire works in relationship and how to work as a team to create a sex life that works for both of you. You’ll be equipped to have productive conversations about your sexual concerns, as well as specific steps to take to make positive changes in your sex life right away.
Money: Steps to Resolving Financial Conflict
Taught by Tamasin Thomas, Therapist & Financial Advisor
Ever fight with a loved one about money? Do some relationships feel more financially stable while others feel chaotic? Are you curious about why financial conflict occurs more often with certain people in your life? Ever feel like you wish you could have responded differently? If relationship financial conflict feels overwhelming, confusing, heavy, or hard to understand, you are not alone. There are typically really good reasons for why we feel the way we feel. I work on helping people understand conflict, both the struggle they feel within themselves and the conflict around them.
In this workshop you will:
- Learn to dentify the recurring cycle that creates the financial conflict.
- Understand the source of the financial conflict.
- Resolve financial conflict in 3 steps.
- Receive a free copy of my ebook, “3 Steps to Resolving Financial Conflict.”
- Ask questions during the Q&A session.
Tamasin used to work in finance and business, but now she works as a relationship expert, helping people understand and minimize conflict. Why the change in careers?
She noticed that executives, no matter what level of authority or leadership they held, still found themselves dealing with conflict, within themselves and with others. Witnessing some of the most brilliant leaders of our age struggle, she asked them why they didn’t ask for help. Their response, over and over again, was “there’s no place that understands the stress of my world and feels safe.”
She aspires to cultivate that safe haven. With a deep understanding of the corporate world, she creates a place to learn how navigate the complex waters of conflict. Conflict, experienced with others, at work or at home in their family life, but also conflict they feel within themselves that may be hindering their life in some way.
Her undergraduate degree was in Business Economics & Accounting from University of California Santa Barbara. After graduation, she spent twenty years in business, working for Deloitte & Touche and KPMG as an auditor. She then worked as a consultant and eventually became a financial planner with Northwestern Mutual, having a balanced practice between investments and insurance.
Now Tamasin works as a therapist (M.A., LMHCA) in her private practice doing weekly sessions for those who can afford the time, or one or two week intensives for the busy executive who needs a time efficient option.
She loves living in the beautiful, Pacific Northwest. In her free time, she enjoys road cycling, golf, rowing, reading, cooking, horses, and hanging out with friends.
Sex: Navigating Differences in Desire
Taught by Jessa Zimmerman, certified sex therapist
Sexual desire discrepancy is the most common issue that brings couples into my therapy practice. These differences in desire can create sadness, tension, doubt and distance. Often, people end up believing that something is terribly wrong – with them, with their partner, or with their relationship.
But the truth is that you can navigate desire discrepancy as a team, creating a sex life that you can both enjoy and look forward to. Once you understand how sexual desire works in a relationship and you have new strategies to bridge your differences, you will handle your differences in libido without the pressure, stress and anxiety that it has caused in the past. Sex can be a strength in your relationship instead of an obstacle.
In this workshop, you will:
- Discover the most common pitfalls that drive a wedge between you and your partner when you have different levels of desire. (If you focus on these traps, you can completely change how you interact around sex.)
- Learn the 4 most important strategies each of you can implement to remove the conflict and stress in the bedroom.
- See how to easily create an alliance so you can work as a team to make sex engaging for you both (and improve your relationship in the process).
- Get a free copy of the “Higher Desire Partner Guide” and the “Lower Desire Partner Guide.”
- Get a chance to ask questions during our Q&A session.
