What, exactly, is relationship coaching?
Relationship coaching applies the basics of professional coaching specifically to struggling relationships. It is a highly-personalized practice focused entirely on the challenges you face in the relationship at hand.
Coaches help you through with compassionate support and guidance, in coaching sessions both alone and together with your relationship partner. They guide you with honest conversation, targeted coaching activities, and helpful tips. With their help, you have a better shot at achieving your relationship goals.
It’s important to reinforce that the coaching relationship is not based on psychotherapy or counseling. Although, these methodologies can work hand-in-hand, therapists and coaches apply unique techniques of their practices to achieve the desired outcomes. Therapy strives, in general, to effect healing from mental, psychological, and emotional disorders. Relationship coaches look ahead, not behind, start with where you are today, and work toward the future. In general, they strive to fix broken relationships, not people, so that you can restore trusting, fulfilling relationships that last.
