Why Communication Is Important In A Relationship - Lyn Smith & Chelsey Liaga

View descriptionShare

Lyn explores the importance of effective communication in relationships with expert guest Chelsea Liaga, a couple's therapist.

They delve into the significance of positive communication to foster deep connections, understanding and intimacy. They discuss common issues, such as feeling unheard or misunderstood, and provide valuable insights and tips for improving our communication skills. They also touch on the impact of fight or flight responses, the role of self-worth in relationships, and the potential for healing and growth when there are toxic dynamics at play.


  • Effective communication is the key to deep connection, understanding, and fulfilment in a relationship. It is essential to everything we want in a healthy relationship, including better sex and more fun.
  • Both partners need to work on their communication skills, including paying attention by actively 'listening' and acknowledging the message, and avoiding minimising/ dismissing the other person's experience.
  • It is important to consider the timing of challenging conversations, and create a safe space for open honest communication. Start the conversation softly by sharing emotions, rather than criticising or finger-pointing.
  • Use the formula "I noticed, I feel, I need" to express concerns (without criticising). This formula helps to keep the conversation focused on the specific issue at hand and avoids attacking the other person's character.


"Communication is really like the door that gets you to all the things that you want in your relationship."

"A lot of times, neither of the two are very well taught, by parents, schools or society." 

"If you can keep a conversation on track in the first three minutes, then the odds are that it's going to end well." 

"I noticed you left your clothes on the floor last night. I feel frustrated when that happens because it makes me feel like you expect me to clean up after you. I need you to put your clothes in the dirty hamper."
