About The Author

Dr Janet Reibstein

Psychologist, Dr. Janet Reibstein is a US born/UK resident clinician, academic, coach, consultant, broadcaster and writer who has been dubbed in the popular media 'The UK’s couples guru'. Dr. Reibstein is a consultant clinical psychologist (family & couples) at The Child and Family Practice, London and Professor Emerita at the University of Exeter.

Dr. Reibstein's research on couples, published over three of her books, formed the basis of a prime time television series and two BBC Radio 4 series. Her research and practice (including an innovative clinical method for working with couples in use across the UK) has yielded a 'code' for how to manage tricky times within any sort of relationship - from families, to friendships, to love relationships, to work ones, a 'code' that is easily communicated and learned - as shown in the critically acclaimed, Good Relations: Cracking the code for how to get on better.

Her books are the 'go-to' for learning how to 'do' relating well; to learn how to negotiate through sticky moments; to become a super-'relator': that is, to become as 'relationally capable' as you can be, whether that's relating with a lover, a friend, a sibling, a parent, a child, or a colleague.
