Join us to celebrate the publication of Contented Couples: Magic, Logic or Luck by Anne Power (Confer Books, 2022)

Dr Kathrine Bejanyan joins Anne Power in conversation about her new book on what makes relationships last.

What stopped you from becoming a divorce statistic? Who has grown up the most over your time together? What does an argument look like? How has sex been across the years?

These are some of the questions Anne Power puts to couples starting therapy. After having counselled clients in relationship difficulties for many years, she developed a strong desire to explore and understand how ‘contented’ couples describe their experience. Through these compassionate and illuminating interviews, the author shares with us how such couples found each other, what made it work, and what keeps it working.

“Listening in to couples that thrive; who enjoy, trust and continue to develop is rare. Therapists tend to write about what needs changing: not what works. It is warming to hear these accounts of closeness in which obstacles are managed and which bring growth to both people.” - Susie Orbach, psychoanalyst and author of The Impossibility of Sex
