I wanted to let you know that you have been central to our recovery. Your manner and expertise during this sensitive time has been excellent and we will definitely recommend you to anyone who finds themselves in a similar position in the future. In addition, if we find ourselves in a similar position in the future, we know where you are and will waste no time in calling upon your services again.
— Emma & Kurt

We’re feeling better and things in our life together are going much smoother thanks to the advice and support you have given us. We really cannot stress how thankful we are for your help and patience. You’ve given us the tools we need to be able to get ourselves ‘out of the hole’ (and any other holes we may fall into in the future).
— Kate & Stephen

The retreat was an excellent experience. Dan was very fair, uncritical and nonjudgmental but incredibly helpful at helping us see the patterns of behaviour that we had become stuck in within our relationship. We came away from the 3 day retreat with lots of practical tools and techniques to help us change our interactions and behaviour. We both feel very positive following the retreat and are looking forward to a new chapter in our lives. Thank you so much Reconnect UK!
— Carrie & Tom

I had really high expectations (or hopes!) when I signed up for this and I am so happy that it lived up to my expectations. Dan is very knowledgeable and empathetic and enabled us to see things differently. He said two things that completely changed my mind-set; “Why does it have to be your way?” and “Relationships are a skill we are not born with, we work at it”. It suddenly all made sense. It is still early stages but I am very happy with how things are going and so is my husband! Thank you Dan!

An unexpected fulfilling weekend that rekindled the spark after an awful period in our marriage - just what we needed. Thank you!
— Stephen & Gemma

We really enjoyed meeting with Dan. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and was able to help reconnect me with my husband. I am extremely glad that I picked Reconnect UK and would recommend to everyone.
— Tanya & Chris

I wish my wife and I had found Dan and tried this years ago (mending the roof while the sun shines, so to speak). It really helped clarify aspects of our own behaviour that were potentially problematic, often things which we might have felt but had never quite articulated before. Doing so allowed us to identify and tackle issues more usefully. Dan was an incredibly knowledgeable, but also engaging facilitator. He ran the sessions expertly, always keeping us on track and allowing us to speak directly and freely, yet never putting words into our mouths. He used his huge base of experience, but tailored it to our own situation. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone and would certainly use him again myself.
— Paul & Marianne

Dan’s focus and energy was extremely helpful. His commitment to helping us affirmed our commitment to each other and made it clear how worthwhile it is to work on our relationship. We were both somewhat apprehensive before we started, but Dan put us both at ease right away with his warm yet professional demeanor. We would highly recommend him. He’s given us several tools, and ways of communicating which we can put into practice on our own. We left feeling excited to invest in us and our future.
— Chris & Leslie

Dan tailored the entire retreat in a way that would suit us and our unique situation making sure every minute was relevant. We both feel more self aware now, and our communication has improved massively since the retreat, as Dan really helped us learn to listen and really hear what each other was saying. We would absolutely recommend Dan, who is very passionate about helping people and is friendly, yet remains neutral and focuses on what is best for each individual.
— Jennifer & Bradley

Very useful marriage preparation course that has set us up for a bright start, we would highly recommend for any couple!

Dan was very personable, engaging and interesting to talk to. He was well-prepared with relevant exercises that got us thinking about talking along useful line.
— Philip & Mary

Dan, our counsellor, was sensitive and engaging, as well as challenging when needed. He inspired confidence with his knowledge of the field and was able to guide sensitive discussions in a confidential and professional manner. We would have no hesitation reaching out to Dan in the future and would also recommend him to friends and family.
— James & Lauren

We felt like we needed some help to reconnect after being together for several years. Communications had broken down and we struggled to articulate what was important to us as individuals and as a relationship. This was having a negative impact on many parts of our relationship. As a gay couple we found it difficult to find the right assistance. Dan was very understanding and his methods and approach seemed very relevant to us. The retreat concept was great since it allowed us to accelerate our progress towards improving our relationship. I’d recommend his retreat to other couples.
— Jason & Mark

Dan listened carefully to all we said and was able to refer back to earlier conversations with ease. He enabled us to talk to each other openly, which we have not been able to do for some considerable time. We left the retreat emotionally exhausted but with a positive attitude towards each other and our relationship that we have not experienced for years. Most importantly, we were given practical advice to allow us to face the future together.
— Alison & Michael

The whole experience was very useful and fulfilling. It has helped our marriage now and I hope going for in the future. Dan is a great facilitator.
— Natasha & Hugh

My husband and I did a three day intensive counselling session with Dan. On Day 1, we walked into the session with the idea of working on closure in our relationship. My husband had an affair that I felt I could not forgive him for. At the end of the three days I had a better understanding of my husband’s reason for embarking on an affair and we decided to give a relationship a trial period to see if we could improve our communication and respect each other. We looked in to our core values and beliefs with in our selves and within our relationship. Dan listened, interjected when necessary, helped us understand each other better and gave us tools to continue to use after the therapy had ended. Whether we stay together or not is to be seen, but either way we have come away knowing the roles we played in our marriage and ways in which we can grow and improve in our interactions in future.
— Audrey & Sam

The weekend was emotionally tiring and extremely valuable at the same time. Dan’s experience, sensitivity and non-judgemental approach made it possible for us to hear each others’ perspective, laugh together, and reconnect as a couple. We took the Monday off work but would have benefited from having a few more days to ourselves before returning to the fray.
— David & Brenda

I cannot recommend Dan highly enough. Our relationship was in crisis and I was exceptionally cynical about the value that could be added by this experience. Thankfully I was wrong, he got to the point in an empathetic, non-patronising way and was extremely professional and human throughout. We worked with Dan to put together a bespoke plan that we continue to work to and things are going really well for us. The man is a miracle worker!
— William & Evelyn

It was as though Dan had waved a magic wand and suddenly made my husband and I listen and communicate with each other like we did when we first met. If I’m honest I wasn’t holding much hope for our future together but now it’s stronger and so much happier than it has been in years!
