My Approach to Relationship Coaching
Through Relationship Coaching, I believe all issues can be dealt with successfully with loving attention, authenticity, and real communication. However, you do need to make the time and space to focus on what’s important, whether it’s conflict, divergent desires or despair. It’s often as simple (maybe not easy) as increasing our self-awareness and building the muscles and courage for real communication.
Whether you are in a mid-life marriage, just past the honeymoon phase, or looking for love, relationship coaching provides a useful structure that will lead to breakthroughs.
Join a small coaching circle to explore your situation or engage in private coaching – with or without your partner – and begin to unpack the mysteries of relationships. Move toward fulfilment in one of the most important areas of your life.
Relationships are critical.
Fifty percent of relationships fail and it doesn’t have to be this way. It happens for a variety of reasons — we aren’t compatible, I don’t love him anymore, maybe we were not meant to be together — but in most cases, it happens simply because people lack the tools and skills they need to successfully deal with the challenges or conflicts they face. They give up on the the promise of the relationship itself.
If your relationship is lacking connection, joy, or riddled with stressful conflict, ask yourself, “Am I willing to interrupt the trajectory of this relationship?”
No man or woman is an island.
All the success in the world is shallow when it isn’t shared with the people in your life.
The fundamental building block of true happiness is the quality of your interactions with people. At the end of every day, no matter where else you’ve succeeded, if you lack affinity and connection with the people around you, you are not honouring the power of relationships. And, it is likely you are not having your most fulfilled life.
All relationships have ups and downs.
Sometimes relationships are singing, sometimes on the rocks. At times, we are equipped to deal with issues or conflict. But, in many cases, we operate on top of them because it can be hard to deal with them. Or, we don’t exactly know how.
It’s no surprise that we often take our relationships for granted, too. While we might experience peak moments of being in love, this feeling can be elusive. With challenges unaddressed and insufficient time for nurturing our relationship, it can look like we are “falling out of love” with one another.
