Reviews for Five Arguments All Couples (Need To) Have

'This is a helpful book that gives a fascinating insight into the couple relationship and how we fall down familiar, predictable holes, with equally fascinating and helpful ways we can learn to look at them with new eyes and thereby find new and improved outcomes'

Julia Samuel, bestselling author of Every Family Has a Story Julia Samuel

'Joanna Harrison's marvellous First Aid for couples shows how conflicts can become unstuck enough to be understood, accepted and even laughed about, so that each person can continue to develop and grow within their relationship.'

Susie Orbach Susie Orbach

'Joanna Harrison leverages her expertise as a relationship therapist and former divorce lawyer to outline the five biggest problem areas in romantic couples' lives, and like a steady, reliable friend, guides us through each of them. Effective conversations about how we communicate, our families of origin, sharing domestic responsibilities including parenting, as well as sex and intimacy are all critical to making love last. As many know, I'm divorced. Painfully. But if I'd read and heeded Harrison's sage advice about how to discuss what actually matters in marriage and relationships? I don't think I would be.'

Matthew Fray, author of “This is How Your Marriage Ends" 

''Harrison presents her insights with gentleness, wisdom and plenty of examples from real life - as well as delicious flashes of humour. There's no better way to be supported than to read this life-changing book''

Rachel Kelly, author of Sunday Times bestseller Black Rainbow
