Ask Hazel

Traditionally, it has been believed that couples must enter into the marriage counselling arena and they must do that together.  I have seen and experience that this approach does not work quickly and effectively for couples striving to live and raise a family in today's world where they are challenged emotionally and burdened heavily financially.  I have discovered personally and in my work, that one partner in the marriage is typically more open and willing to face the difficulties than the other. Is this you?  I learned that that does not have to be a barrier to improving a relationship. With the right knowledge and simple, easy-to-apply practical tools, the magic of repairing a relationship woes is more than possible and a satisfying relationship highly probable.

I was led to doing the work I now do after my personal experiences in 3 marriages over 25 years, 2 divorces, a total of 10 years being a single mom; my work experience of over 20 years mediating the emotional & financial difficulties of divorcing couples.   I decided I had to help women find the road less traveled on their journey to living in a happy long-term relationship.  In 1999, after experiencing the failings of the legal arena for divorce, I created  PartnersPartPeacefully, a process for divorcing couples to divorce amicably.  Today, this method is now considered the primary and preferred option.  I witnessed increasingly couples divorcing that had an emotional or financial problem and rates of divorce continuing to increase.   I began to question if traditional marriage counselling was failing couples.  I decided to do further studies and training in the relationship arena so that I could deliver again a much needed unique and effective relationship service that would help couples get out of discomfort quickly and work on their relationship effectively.  I launched Ask Hazel in 2007, a solutions-based approach to living in emotionally rewarding relationships that can last a lifetime.  This is the most rewarding work for me and I am truly blessed to have met women who embrace change with grace.
