About Susie & Otto Collins

"You can communicate and connect with love. We can show you how!"

About Susie & Otto Collins

Hi, we’re Susie and Otto Collins and we’ve been helping men and women all over the world create more love and possibilities in their relationships and marriages since 1999 and we want to help you create the relationship of your dreams too.

Whether it’s been through our best-selling books and programs, our one-on-one coaching work with singles and couples or through our seminars and workshops, our mission has been to show people like you how that love doesn't have to be a struggle and relationships don't have to be filled with stress, conflict and misunderstandings.

We know how relationships that start out so loving and connected can turn empty, sour and painful in a matter of years or even months or weeks!

We’re excited to tell you that through years of research using the laboratory of our own relationship as well as others’ relationships, we’ve discovered the secrets to communicating from the heart and making your love last.

For instance, if you’re tired of not knowing what to say so that your partner understands you, we’ve identified certain words and phrases that create more openness and connection, especially when you talk about “touchy subjects,” that we put in our Magic Relationship Words book and audio program.

Along with creating healthier communication, our Breakthrough Relationship coaching clients, people who have downloaded our programs and our Relationship newsletter subscribers also get specific techniques on stopping jealousy and creating trust even after an affair.

Because we want you to enjoy the love and relationships you want, we’ve got a free gift for you. We invite you to visit our site and take us up on it!

We wish you much love, Susie and Otto Collins

She's communicating instead of walking away...

Women seeking to start over in a relationship

“Your info taught me to communicate more effectively with my mate in order to get the love and affection that I need and deserve instead of just walking away from the relationship. It also showed me what to look for and how to end the cycle of 'the dance' in a relationship--the pulling forward and negatively pulling backward in a relationship. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to embark on this journey with you. I know that 'Stop Talking on Eggshells' will be a blessing to many." Crystal

She's learning how to not destroy her new relationship...

Women newly dating

“I downloaded your ‘Magic Words’ ebook and got two audios a couple days ago. Honestly, this material is terrific. I’m 60 yrs old and have been single for 27 years. I’ve worked on myself a lot but now that I finally have a really good man, I’ve noticed my inner thinking and some outer reactions that really have nothing to do with him. Your material is really helping me clarify and take responsibility for my own ‘stuff’ so I won’t destroy what we are building. Thank you so much for what you do! You do it very well, too.” Leslie

"I'm discovering how valuable these magic words are..."

Women in complicated relationships

“During this Thanksgiving week, I simply want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m discovering how valuable these magic words are for any relationship (above and beyond the primary relationship)- and I’m handling a highly sensitive family trauma – which needs all the love, patience and wisdom in the world to work-through – and I’m adapting the magic words according to need to help support this delicate, difficult navigation.
I love how the workbook creates a sense of emotional space and reflection literally by including space for exercises – in itself helping to decompress ‘tightness’ and ‘fear’ and open-up heartfelt, authentic connection even where extremely deep differences, perceptions and experiences may exist. Susie and Otto, thanks for creating and sharing this – part of your invaluable gift of service to the path of truly authentic human relating.” R

He knows their marriage will be great from here on...

Married couples

“The Magic Relationship Words are a totally awesome collection of thoughtful and logical words to wrap a thought into that conveys the feeling that the message is coming from a loving place. Thank you both for the gifts you have shared to help our relationship. Mary and I have had a “good” 41 year marriage, and now I know we will have a GREAT marriage every day from here on.” James

She was going to leave but decided to stay...

Women seeking to end a relationship

“I went through the Should You Stay or Should You Go? program on a day I knew I was going to leave. I stayed. We're working through some of the problems but the reason we are is because I answered the question "why do you want to leave" in great detail. Then I came across the question that if the issues I listed could be fixed would I stay. My answer was yes. That really made me think. I decided to share this with my husband and he said 'let's figure out a way to fix it'.  We are discussing these deep issues and so I am still here and willing to work with him to see if they can be resolved. Thank you for the emails. I am learning a lot - about communication but also about myself and relationships. Keep them coming!” B

"Now I can instantly calm down."

Women seeking to start over in a relationship

“I’m so glad I found you! Every time I talked to you, I felt stronger. I’ve read books but you helped me get beyond the bump I’ve had in my relationship. I learned that when I’m upset and crying to stop and notice what’s happening in my body. With that information and with practice, now I can instantly calm down. Thank you! Kathleen”

"...Openly discuss topics now that we've never mentioned"

Men seeking to start over in a relationship

“Your coaching has helped in several ways although I still need to work at continuing to improve myself. I have learned to phrase comments so I don’t create distance between me and my wife while at the same time making us closer. I have learned ways of opening her up when in conversation. We also have openly discussed topics now that we’ve never mentioned to each other in over 11 years of being together. In reviewing our situation now compared to where we were two months ago, we are in a much better position although all wounds take time to heal. My goal is to continue down the path I’ve been heading towards since I started visiting with you. I’ve seen improvements in so many ways both in the way I interact with my wife and other relationships.” M
