During relationship coaching I help my clients improve, or make a decision about, a significant relationship that is affecting their happiness and maybe also their health. You’ll find relationship progress will also indirectly have a knock on effect on other areas in your life such as your career, fitness, hobbies, mental health, and other relationships.
Research shows that positive relationships help us to be happier and healthier, and live longer, and that living in the midst of high-conflict relationships is very bad for our health. So, addressing our relationship problems is vital for our health and happiness.
I help clients improve relationships with their spouse, partner, parents, children, friends, colleagues, and more, and usually help them to achieve big changes in mostly just 3-6 sessions, many in just 3-4, results you’d usually expect to achieve after a much lengthier counselling/therapy program. The goal is to resolve issues at the root cause, produce lasting change, and help you to achieve your coaching goals, quickly.
Here are some of the reasons clients seek my relationship help, although this list is by no means exhaustive:
- A disconnected romantic relationship.
- Concern about one or more relationship with a child.
- Struggling relationship with one or both parents.
- Other relationships disrupting the marital relationship, e.g. in-laws, friends.
- Dealing with a divorce or break-up – past, present or impending.
- Disagreement on child-rearing methods.
- Drifting apart after having children.
- Flailing business relationship.
- Friendship on the rocks in need of help.
- Poor mental and/or physical health causing challenges at home.
- Poor mental and/or physical health due to relationship problems.
- Struggling to reconnect as a couple after being left with an ’empty nest’.
As highlighted above, I also help people manage the divorce or break-up process in a handful of sessions, helping clients to deal with their grief, anxiety, depression, repetitive negative thoughts, communications with their ex, co-parenting strategies, and more.
I tend to see clients Tuesdays to Fridays, 10am to 7pm (UK time) to accommodate most time zones.
You can come for relationship help alone to work on things on your own, together as two people, or use a combination of individual and ‘couples’ sessions which also works great, whatever the nature of your relationship.
Before you start I will provide you with a questionnaire so that you can give me a brief overview of your situation and what you want to achieve through coaching, plus specific instructions on how to get the most out of each coaching session and the coaching journey.
My style of relationship coaching is proactive, science-based, solution-focused, compassionate, non-judgmental and uplifting.
You’ll set the agenda for your sessions. To help you quickly, I will use a combination of skillful questioning, sharing expert insights into your unique situation, using my intuition, and suggesting tasks/strategies that will help you to make quick progress. You will only undertake exercises you’re happy to utilise that will help you to achieve your goals; and they’re usually easy and sometimes fun.
