Dr. John Brady and Dr. Irene Dougherty are masterful at creating LifeStyle workshops that are informal, warm and welcome venues made up of people like you who enjoy good company and solid common sense ideas that enrich your life and make it more satisfying.

The HeartLight Wellness approach to self-improvement and improving relationships focuses on real-world solutions. This perspective empowers participants in our fun and informative, interactive workshops to find peace of mind and well being by getting to know themselves and how they relate to others in a non-judgmental framework.

What makes the HeartLight workshop approach to self-improvement unique is that participants discover new possibilities through a series of experiences in a safe learning environment where interpersonal communication and lifestyle skills improve confidence, self-esteem, and peace of mind.

COUPLES WORKSHOPS: Why couples workshops? At HeartLight Wellness we know that relationships have a powerful impact on our emotional, physical and mental well-being and overall wellness.

Couples workshops allow couples planning a marriage/partnership, transitioning into mid-life, or others to dialogue about how to strengthen relationships.

We know that wisdom comes from all 'slices' of life, and we welcome couples and partners from all lifestyles, lesbian, gay, straight, young, middle aged or senior relationships to share their experience with others.

The workshops are a great opportunity to take a 'timeout' when you both can slow down, have fun together, forget the routine, and develop healthy relationship skills. At HeartLight's Couples workshops you’ll learn to:
Identify your relationship's strengths and build on them
Use the A-A-A System to foster respect, affection, and closeness
Build and share a deeper emotional and physical connection
Strengthen and maintain the gains in your relationship
Create an Emotional Bank Account that you can draw on in times of stress
Develop your problem-solving skills
Learn the 6-skills of conflict resolution that keep conflict discussions calm
