The relationships in our lives — whether with friends, family members, or romantic partners — are one of our richest sources of joy, meaning, and purpose. And when we take the time to invest in them by asking creative, meaningful questions, we create long-lasting bonds that are both deep and fulfilling. Below are ten meaningful questions that may help strengthen your relationships:

What are you excited about right now?
How can I support you?
What’s something new or different you’ve done recently?
What do you want to be celebrating in five years?
How are you feeling today?
What’s your favourite book?
What is most important to you right now?
What gifts or opportunities have you received recently? 
What’s your family like?
What’s one gift this past year has given you?

For further relationship support you may wish to request our Couples Communication Workbook. This workbook provides couples with therapeutic homework assignments to help build a foundation for a happier and more fulfilling relationship. In completing these assignments, couples can rehearse new communication strategies and challenge harmful beliefs, strengthening the insights that surface during counselling sessions. This workbook offers fifty-two worksheets that will help couples learn strategies to manage their emotions in constructive ways, instead of turning to behaviours that erode their relationship.
