Dina Bachelor Evan is the renowned psychotherapist with an impressive 90% success rate in counselling gay couples. In this warm and accessible guide to creating and maintaining long-term relationships, she draws on her many years of experience to advise gay men and lesbians who seek meaningful, long-term relationships, but lack the necessary tools to attain them. Dr Evan's main argument is that most therapists are ill-equipped to deal with the specific issues of gay and lesbian couples. This realisation, and her belief that successful relationships follow a deeply spiritual path, is at the core of Break Up or Break Through, which powerfully and clearly guides couples away from dysfunction, pathology, and the classic errors of emulating heterosexual relationships. Her basic principles; 'Stay Present', 'Be Honest' and 'Act Out of Love and Not Fear' are noted for creating profound changes in quality of life as well as providing a strong foundation for healthy relationships. Here they are outlined through exercises, meditations, and personal inventories designed to heal, remove barriers to intimacy, and elevate gay and lesbian couples to a place of grace and strength.
