Reviews & Testimonials
Creating Relationship Wellness is an ideal book for people who seek to enhance their relationships. Author Stephanie Wijkstrom helps couples to gain some insight into each other’s worlds through interventions and proven techniques. While this tool book is mainly intended for couples, much of the information provided by Stephanie can easily be applied to other associations as well. Each section follows the previous one, making for a smooth flow, easy to follow and learn. The book is filled with useful information, guides, instructions, questions, and activities for couples to do either on their own or together.
Creating Relationship Wellness gives a refreshing perspective on behavioral psychology as a pathway to enhanced relationships. The Feedback Loop is a fantastic model to use and along with the rest of the book, if used as directed by the author, will most certainly enhance any relationship. The practical activities can be done as a couple or individually which helps with the thought process for each question as well as providing an opportunity to practice the breathing and grounding exercises. Everyone knows that communication is vital in any relationship and this book gives the reader a recipe for success which includes listening skills and boundaries.
Author Stephanie Wijkstrom clearly understands human emotions, relationship enhancement, and interconnectedness. I especially enjoyed the chapters on trust, accountability, responsibility, and forgiveness. These are all things that we often speak about but need to put into practice. The bibliography includes some great ideas for further reading. The book really is a fantastic guide, highly recommended to all adults.

“In her book Creating Relationship Wellness, Stephanie Wijkstrom calls upon her over twelve years of experience as a psychotherapist/marriage counselor. Stephanie gives examples from her practice and teaches various mindfulness techniques to improve interpersonal relationships in her book. Stephanie learned both the easy way (college) about building relationships and the hard way (school of life). As you read her words, remember to work through the questions and exercises in each chapter. This way, you allow Stephanie to use her years of experience to guide you into a more mindful person. This book is easy to read and understand. Stephanie’s style is easy to relate to and learn from. Stephanie does not lecture as the expert but comes alongside you to gently guide you into a better relationship. I have done marriage counseling for over 40 years, and I highly recommend this book.
Don’t read this book to fix your mate; read this book to change your life. Too often, we forget that staying in love takes work. Read this book to learn how to work smarter, not harder, in your relationship.”

“Creating Relationship Wellness has many great qualities. First of all, Stephanie Wijkstrom explores the causes of misunderstanding and conflict in a relationship and offers sound advice for each of them. Moreover, she explains what to do to achieve the best possible relationship with your partner. She tackles the topics in such a clear way that the reader will have no more doubts or questions after reading her book.
However, the best part of Creating Relationship Wellness is the exercises. They allow readers to do an in-depth analysis of themselves, their partners, and their relationship. I particularly liked that Wijkstrom insists on the importance of communication, which in my opinion, is the most critical thing for a good relationship. I am sure that after you have read Creating Relationship Wellness, you too will be convinced of the value of mindfulness. There is no doubt that after reading this book, you will immediately notice improvements.”

“I have been a first-hand witness to the remarkable work Stephanie does with so many couples who many would have considered beyond hope for reconciling and healing their marriages. Stephanie truly has a special talent to empower these individuals to heal from their traumas and begin to communicate in ways that enable their continued healing and growth as a couple.”
