Just like other types of coaching, couples coaching is about looking at what you want rather than what you don’t want. It is about setting goals and taking steps to make them happen. It is not counseling or psychotherapy. It does not delve into emotions being expressed; instead, it is about change and making things better. This includes awareness around how you communicate with your partner, taking responsibility for what you are creating in your relationship, and letting go of the need to blame.
Couples coaching is about taking action, learning new strategies, and better communication skills. It is learning to treat each other with mutual respect, trust, and most of all loving-kindness. It means mutual responsibility for what happens in your relationship and learning to really listen to each other.
“From understanding the different ways that men and women relate to each other, and how needs differ, you can begin to improve your love life from today. Love adds the salt and pepper to life and it can last if we relate with more understanding of our differences” Carolyn Curtis Coach4Life Ireland.
