  1. Thanks for your hard work, your dedication to help others, and your willingness to share your knowledge. Your ideas are clear and thought-provoking, and help me to find more effective ways of working with clients I appreciate hearing from you and I appreciate the opportunity to participate!

  2. Thank you all for your kind and generous comments. I look forward to sharing lots more about motivation with you-including a summary of all the responses I am getting on this survey.

  3. Thanks Ellyn. I came to a workshop of yours and Peters in Melbourne some years ago and found it to be one of the most useful workshops on couples therapy I have ever been to. I use your techniques and suggestions often and feel they are so wise, sensible and down to earth. Thank you!
    Low motivation is a really interesting one. It seems that so often couples (and individuals) are happy to sit in the room with you and feel that’s all they need to do!!

  4. Ellyn, thank you for all you do to help us! I just answered all of your questions re a partner’s motivation, but couldn’t find a place to type in my name. Hope you can tell it’s from me. Lisa

  5. Ellyn,
    I have benefited greatly from the information that you share online and from the material that I have bought from The Couples Institute. I am grateful and look forward to learning more from you over the years.
