Relationship Booster: parents with passion

When children are involved it is very easy to lose touch. With yourself and with your partner. There is less time for each other and always something to do. When you do talk to each other, the tasks and child matters easily take up the conversation. You both experience a chronic lack of time to yourself and also socialising has become a challenge. Because you are tired. You lack back-up. Or because you have just grown into that mode.


  • you don’t feel there is time to just ‘enjoy the moment’;
  • you don’t get the time to yourself, to find out who YOU are;
  • you don’t feel the space to raise the kids to your standards;
  • you don’t seem to be able to surpass the ‘mom and dad’ conversations;
  •  your partner starts to feel more like a roommate;
  • you feel like your partner does not see or value what you do for the family
  • you both experience a lack of interest in the other one’s mindset

Give your relationship that much needed Boost!

Step OUT of that vicieus cirkel and start working on the core of your unrest and frustration. Together and individually. Step (back) INTO your relationship. Learn how to keep your own cup filled with energy. So you can (once again) enjoy each other and your family. And vice versa. “That sense of satisfaction, I wish to everyone”.

This program is NOT relationship therapy. It’s a preventive, life-time investment in yourself and each other, as partners. The implementation of this program is practical, respectful and realistic. Taken from an effective communication point of view, developed with attention for personal needs and the power of humor.

In this 4 months program you will learn

  • about your own needs
  • and the needs of your partner
  • wat gives each of you energy and what drains it
  • which focus points are at play in your relationship
  • what you find important, personally and as a couple
  • what you find important as parents and what expectations you have in this
  • how you can come to agreements that are acceptable to both of you
  • how you make time for each other, without loosing time to yourself
  • how you can switch between the parent and partner roles

  • how you clearly and respectfully express your needs to each other
  • how you communicate clearly when in conflict, without causing damage

Because of the I-messages and the ‘is it my problem’, I experience there is more room for me and I am able to show more of myself through the I- messages. Projectmanager, married, mother of 2

“The base of the Boost program is build upon respect for each others opinions and needs.”

“Learned so much! That you achieve much more when you address behaviour without judgement. And that you-messages are always lousy (…) even without bad intentions. And that effective listening is very pleasant when listened to. And that effective listening is so much better than to attempt to solve the problem (…).”


“Linda really did it. I love that she was able to teach me that much (…) She really takes the time to allow for everyone to have their moment. I have a lot of respect for her as a trainer.”


“You gain valuable insight into your own ways of communicating and you receive practical tools.”


“Tangibly and realistic. I now use the I-message for almost everything.”
