Andrew G. Marshall is a marital therapist with almost thirty years experience. He trained with RELATE the UK’s leading couple-counselling charity, but has developed his own method which blends psycho-dynamic (which looks at your past and how it affects today) with systemic (which focuses on how your relationship works today and what would improve matters) counselling. He writes on relationships for the Mail on Sunday and Psychologies Magazine. For the Times, he wrote the Psychobabble series. For the Independent, he wrote the celebrity profile Revelations – where somebody in the news talked about a moment where they learnt something about themselves – and for Woman and Home magazine he interviewed celebrity couples Inside a Marriage. He has published ten books on relationships and his work has been translated into over fifteen different languages.
Andrew is also a successful playwright. Coming Around Again, a play about five generations of the same family and how one generation’s secrets will affect the next, was performed at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2005 and published by Oberon Books. The Guardian described Coming Around Again as ‘an impressive feat’ and the Stage called it ‘an utter delight’. Other plays include: Ladies That Walk and Walking Again (Proteus Theatre Company tour of Hampshire, Berkshire, Sussex and Surrey) and Sex in the Seventies (Nightingale Theatre in Brighton) described by the Evening Argus as ‘intimate theatre at its best’ and by Latest 7 as ‘very funny, very clever and very moreish’. His musical produced by Farnham Maltings and Proteus Theatre Modern Major General is based on the music of Gilbert & Sullivan which toured the South East of England in 2007, Coffee Cantata based on the music of JS Bach which toured coffee shops in West Susses in 2008 and Caruso & the Quake, a one man play about Enrico Caruso and his escape from the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 developed with the Nightingale Theatre. This show played Edinburgh Festival (Pleasance Courtyard) in 2008 and toured the UK and Ireland from 2009 to 2012: more details at www.carusoandthequake.com. His latest play Caruso & the Monkey House Trail was nominated for best new play at the Brighton Festival in 2011 and played the Edinburgh Festival the same year at Remarkable Arts (which won the Spirit of the Fringe Award for the breath of their programming). It is still touring the UK; more details at www.carusoandthemonkeyhousetrial.com. He is currently working on a new project, ‘Madam Butterfly: The One Man Opera’.
In 2012, Andrew launched Marshall Method Publishing with an app to sit alongside his book Make Love Like a Prairie Vole: Six steps to passionate and plentiful sex and a new book ‘My Wife Doesn’t Love Me Any More’. He is currently developing a US version of this book and a US edition of Make Love Like a Prairie Vole which will be called ‘Have the Sex You Want: A couple’s guide to getting back the spark’ both to be published in 2013. His next book is published worldwide by MacMillan and is called ‘I love you but you always put me last: How to childproof your marriage’ and come out in September 2013.
