Season 1, Episode 4 – How our early relationships impact dating and relationships

In this episode of How to love successfully, I, Dr Mari Kovanen, a registered psychologist, and a conscious dating & relationship coach will talk about how our early environment creates a blueprint for relationships and what this means for us. Understanding the basic principles of these blueprints helps us to make sense of dating behaviours and work towards communicating in a more open manner about what we want and need in a relationship.   

Take a seat and your favourite warm drink. I hope you enjoy this episode!
