Testimonials

Private Matters is an exceptional gift for anyone wanting to take their relationship skills to a much higher level. Not only is there an incredible variety of experts interviewed but the quality of the information is so fresh and deep that one wonders why most therapists aren’t using the site with their clients! Several of the videos have given me, personally, new tools in which to understand my own relationship better and to have more compassion and understanding for my partner.
Bravo Max ! Keep up the great work.

My wife and I are going though a major transition after raising kids and moving towards retirement. Our interest in sexual exploration are at the opposite ends of the poles. However, after just one session with Max, he re-framed the problem in a way that gave me the opportunity to have an honest heart to heart discussion with my wife as I have never had before in 40 years. My original conversational style would have led us down the same path with no exit. Because of this, we are now working on the problem together. Max was able to dig deep into my intentions so that my communication went from messy and somewhat manipulative to honest and straightforward. As a result, my wife was also able to communicate her needs clearly and now we are closer together than ever. Thanks Max…

This video (Episode 2: Healthy Bonding with Carista Luminare) has really changed my relationship(s) – both with my partner, friends, and even myself, since I first watched it 2 months ago. I highly recommend it to you. Thank you, Max J. Van Praag!

Thank you Max, I hadn’t had sex with my husband for 14 years, and after our first session and by implementing the homework you gave me, my husband and I reconnected sexually. You were direct, confident and professional. I am forever grateful.
