What we're about

Relationships are the most difficult aspect of life. Nowhere else do we have as much hope and expectation. And no other area of our life brings such pain and misery.

Whether you’re trying to find your way through the weirdos, perverts and players in the dating jungle

Or struggling to maintain feeling loving with a partner who tests your limits

Maybe you’re just trying to cope with the heartbreak at the end of a relationship and want to be able to get through the day without breaking down in tears.

Or maybe you’re someone who’s been through these challenges and has stories to tell and wisdom to share.

Whatever your situation, if you are interested in sharing your experiences and views in a small group and able to listen to others with an open mind in the interests of learning more about what it takes to live happily ever after then this meetup could be for you.

I have another group in Norwich;

https://www.meetup.com/The-Honest-Truth-About-Dating-Relationships-and-Heartbreak/

In it we have a group of lovely people that come to each Meetup with an enquiring mind, open to new ideas, challenging each other gently and sharing their experiences and challenges in relationships.

I'm looking to recreate the same open and enquiring group to Cambridge.

Yet nowhere teaches us these skills or prepares us for the reality of most relationships.

Women want to know why the men they love, lie, cheat and hurt them. And men want to know what the women they love really think, want and mean.

Let’s get to the root of why people ghost, cheat and the impact of changing roles in a post #metoo world.

I’m Rob McPhillips and I started The Relationship GPS Project

https://relationshipgpsproject.com (https://relationshipgpsproject.com/)

to help people have more honest, passionate and loving relationships.

After three decades of working with people as a Therapist and Coach, I have lots of theories and models for how relationships work, but I’m not interested in untested theory.

I want to know what works in real life and so I’m looking for a small group of people who are willing to talk in a comfortable, intimate environment about the challenges and experiences they have had in their relationships.

Is it all in the mind?

The Boathouse,

I read this quote recently and it got me thinking...-"Our state of mind defines every relationship in our lives". Relationships can be scary things! 🕷️ And it's frightening to consider how much our state of mind can effect an interaction and an outcome. Even more frightening to consider we might need to take responsibility for the state of mind we find ourselves in! So I thought what better day to explore this than Halloween 🎃. Come along if you're feeling brave, to discuss 'state of mind' and it's influence on relationships. (Fake blood, fangs and painful truths may or may not be present 👻. Future sessions promise to be less scary).

The Four Relationship Truths

The Cambridge Blue

I believe there are four basic truths that we have to understand that underpin all relationship problems. Four truths that if we can understand and live by, we can eliminate pain and suffering in our relationships. The truths apply whether its's pain in an existing relationship, pain from a horrific past relationship or pain from the break up of a relationship. Let's explore the topic and see if we can find some resolution. As in all meetings, we come with different experiences, values and ideas. It is in our open and honest discussion that we can refine our own ideas. The goal isn't to change anyone's mind, but to challenge their thinking so that they come to more clarity and awareness.
