Open Your Heart

The 7 secrets of strong and loving relationships

Dig deep into yourself, face your power to transform yourself and your relationships, and build a relationship that is strong, loving and fulfilling.

Open Your Heart

In this book, Sue Plumtree, author, life coach and story teller, reveals the 7 secrets that will enable you to build a strong and loving relationship.

Amongst other things, you will discover how to:

– get to like, respect and trust yourself,
– identify your deepest needs and wants, and how to have them met,
– find the right partner and build a committed relationship,
– develop a relationship that lasts,
– communicate so you and your partner become emotionally close.

The most important point she makes is that, first and foremost, you need to open your heart to yourself.

In this book, Sue invites you to learn the insights, knowledge and skills that will enable you to transform yourself first. Only then will you be able to build a relationship that is strong, loving and fulfilling.

As backdrop to each one of her 7 secrets, Sue uses her own 37 year unhappy marriage which she left aged 60 to highlight how she contributed to the death of her relationship.

This insight, painful though it was, enabled her to stop blaming her ex-husband for her unhappiness and to start taking responsibility for her role in the failure.

In the years since she left and grew increasingly happy and fulfilled, Sue began to explore the process that enabled her to build the foundation of a life filled with meaning and loving friendships – insights which she shares in this book.

Then, in December 2015 aged 70, she met Paul, the man who became her friend, her lover, soulmate and partner.

In the time they’ve been together, Sue has discovered exactly what it takes to build a strong, loving and emotionally intimate relationship which she also shares with you.

Sue does not rely only on her own experience but has thoroughly researched her recommendations which are supported by fellow relationship specialists and a range of sociological and psychological studies.

From Pain to Fulfillment

My unhappy marriage taught me how I contributed to its breakdown and how to take responsibility for the part I played.

Sue Plumtree

Sue Plumtree (1945 – Present) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Viennese parents. She came to England in 1965 to learn English. Here she met Jim, the man she married.

After a 37 year marriage where she felt unloved, unimportant, emotionally neglected and empty, she finally left aged 60. But the pain wasn’t wasted.

When she looked back to try and figure out what was missing in her marriage that made her feel so unhappy, she discovered that she too played a role in creating her unhappiness, not only her own but that of Jim as well. It was an insight that transformed her life.

Over the next 10 years she rebuilt her life and discovered the joys of living on her own.

During that time she developed friendships she describes as caring, generous and open-hearted, and built her life coaching practice as the Over 50s Love Specialist.

Unexpectedly, in 2015 aged 70, she met the love of her life, Paul and they recently celebrated their second anniversary.

She typically works with women over 50, helping them regain their self-confidence and sense of self-worth, and guides them through the task of building strong and loving relationships.

What Other People Say

“I can’t begin to say how you have transformed my life. I now have a new confidence and outlook which have totally changed my way of seeing myself and my life ahead. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that such a change was possible and I am, and always will be, eternally grateful to you.”
Marianne J. Lucas
“There were many tears shed and I managed to work my way through plenty of tissues and cups of tea but Sue’s warm and safe environment helped me to open up. Our sessions forced me to put essential time aside to reflect on all aspects of my life and create a good equal and organised balance. It was what I really needed!”
