“I read this book in one afternoon but am now working through it step by step. It’s fun and easy to read and I love the format. It first gives you background information and the research behind it. Clinton then gives you an activity to do with your partner. I like that it’s set up so you can read the book with your partner and be able to have fun doing the activities together. It puts the playfulness and intimacy back into the relationship. I think it’s important to focus on your relationship and this books helps you do that. Fantastic resource!” Cait Wotherspoon
“I’ve loved reading 31 days! Easy to read and digest. I love the ’31 days’ aspect as I only need to concentrate on a small chunk of great advice at a time. Being an easy read, doesn’t mean that the book doesn’t offer wonderful long term strategies though. It’s filled with some great stuff. I’m fortunate enough to be in a good relationship, but I found that this book certainly opened my eyes on how I can build on what we have, to ensure it’s even greater. Looking forward to continuing to put the suggestions into practice.” Amanda
“This ebook is full of useful tips and information to help single people & those already in a couple. It will help you to put into practice small, easy steps to improve relationships. Clinton draws on some of the world’s leading couple researchers and therapists & brings you information which you can use, not only for 31 days, but for years to come. I’m sure that if you take action on any one of these tips, you will notice immediate positive changes in your life. A good investment.” Vivian Baruch, M. Couns. Relationship Coach, Counsellor & Psychotherapist.
“Well, if you’re looking for a readable, informative and practical guide to improving your relationship, this book hits the spot. It’s easy to read, clear and concise and full of bite-sized communication tips. I think both men and women alike will appreciate this handy guide and enjoy downloading and discussing the fascinating array of topics. A helpful guide for all relationships.” Gemma Summers
“I found Clinton’s book really easy to read, reassuring and pragmatic. Too often I have read books that explain concepts (which I get intellectually) but I’m unsure how to follow through skilfully. This book explains a concept, then gives clear examples and actions steps for how you can experiment with the tools. It was also humbling for me to read, it’s ok to complain or get your needs met for example, but I need to look at how I’m doing that effectively so my partner can really hear me. I would highly recommend this book. Thank you so much Clinton!” Sue McDonnell

About the author
Clinton Power is a clinical relationship counselor and Gestalt therapist based in Sydney, Australia, who helps singles and couples move out of relationship pain. He is the founder of Clinton Power + Associates, which provides high-quality relationship counseling from 3 locations across Sydney.
He is passionate about helping individuals and couples create healthy relationships. For over a decade he has had the pleasure of providing relationship counseling and couples therapy to people who have struggled due to painful relationship patterns. Many of his clients longed to create respectful, loving and life affirming relationships for years before they began counselling with him.
Clinton’s interest in counseling grew out of his earlier career as a professional classical musician. For 15 years he performed with world-class orchestras in Sydney and overseas. As a performer he often struggled with performance anxiety and nervousness and this led to an interest in the mind and the psychology of performing.
His musical background led him to be attracted to therapy modalities that involved more than just talk therapy. He was drawn to the more experiential and creative methods and therefore specialised in Gestalt Therapy.
Clinton Power is the founder and director Australia Counselling, Australia’s leading directory for finding counselors, therapists and psychologists within Australia.
Clinton is regularly featured in the media on the topic of relationships and has been interviewed by MSN.com, The Sun-Herald, Cosmopolitan and Virgin Inflight Magazine. He has a particular interest in writing about how technology is impacting relationships today.
