Relationship Coaching


Please Note: Relationship Coaching is NOT only for couples.  Individuals can participate in Relationship Enhancing Coaching



Relationship coaching is a type of therapy for established partners that tries  to resolve problems in the relationship. Typically, two people attend coaching sessions together to         discuss specific issues.  Many single people who have trouble with commitment or “finding the right one” often participate in Individual Relationship Coaching in order to change habits or become more self-aware about why they seek certain types of relationships.  Individuals often use this type of coaching to move past old relationships and prepare themselves to welcome a life partner who will grow with them.


Relationship coaching is based on research that shows that individuals and their problems are best handled within the context of their relationships (past or present). Relationship coaching (and Relationship Life Coaches) are trained in family systems and focus on understanding their clients’ symptoms and the way their interactions contribute to problems in the relationship.


Relationship coaching is usually a short-term therapy that may take only a few sessions to work out problems.  Typically,  Coaches ask questions about roles, patterns, rules, goals and beliefs.

Therapy often begins by having the couple or individual analyze the good and bad aspects of the relationship. The Coach works to help the couple or individual understand the issues and how each person contributes.  This leads to a realization of whether changes need to be made in behaviors or something more physical (setting, career, etc.).

Anyone wishing to improve his or her relationships can get help with this type of coaching. LC/Counselors also offer services to couples before they get married to help them understand potential problem areas.  


Another type of therapy, post-relationship therapy, can also be very helpful at the end of a relationship.  Sometimes divorcing couples will seek help to work out differences regarding children or unresolved emotional situations, as well as creating a plan of how to move forward without one another.  Individuals can benefit from post-relationship therapy to get through the grieving process and move on in a healthy way.

Normal results

Relationship coaching helps couples and individuals learn to deal more effectively with problems and can help prevent small problems from becoming serious.  Research shows that Relationship Coaching, when effective, tends to improve a person’s physical as well as mental health, in addition to improving the relationship.
