Where to use could have and would have ?

How can I specify it easily that when I will use could have and when would have? Expecting any practical example.

According to me:

  1. Could have means that something was possible in the past, but it did not happen. For eg.: “I could have been more successful if I had worked harder".

  2. Would have means you wanted to do something in the past, but you could not. For eg.: "I would have called her but her family was with her".

Hopefully this helps you.
