Guest Patricia Wu and guest therapist Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant reveals the importance of active listening in relationships. JoJo discusses how open communication, attentive body language, and a focus on shared problem-solving can strengthen bonds and reduce conflict.

Active Listening Creates Connection

Acknowledging your partner’s feelings, mirroring their emotions, and using positive body language demonstrate that you’re present and engaged in the conversation.

Ditch the Blame Game

Focus on expressing your feelings and needs using “I” statements. Avoid pointing fingers, which can shut down communication and escalate conflict.

Vulnerability Strengthens Bonds

Sharing deeper thoughts and feelings with your partner builds trust and fosters emotional safety, leading to a more fulfilling relationship.
