Does your relationship need a tune-up? Maybe you aren’t experiencing any serious issues, but lately, you have noticed some relationship problems that you would like to address.
Perhaps you feel a desire to improve your communication skills. Or maybe, you have felt disconnected from your partner and want to take some focused time to talk and reconnect. Maybe your relationship feels disorganized and without a clear purpose. You want to come together as a team to figure out who you are as a couple and what you want from life. But so far, you haven’t found time to make this happen.
All Relationships Have Room to Grow
If you are dealing with misunderstandings or frustrations in your relationship, you are not alone. Relationships are hard. Even when a relationship is going well, it needs a level of maintenance and focused attention to keep it on track.
Many couples put their relationship to the side because life is busy. Couples typically know it is important to spend focused time with each other, enjoying one another’s company and having serious conversations about their relationship and future. But, couples often fail to make this a priority because work and family responsibilities constantly get in the way.
Couples Coaching Can Help You Work Towards Your Goals
If this describes your relationship, couples coaching can help. Many marriage and family therapists who offer marital counseling and relationship therapy also offer life coaching services for couples. This is one of the services we offer at the Prescott Relationship Center.
Consider the following differences between couples coaching and couples therapy to determine if coaching would be a good fit for your relationship.
- Couples who choose coaching are typically less distressed than those who come for marital counseling or therapy.
- While couples counseling focuses more on past problems, coaching focuses more on future goals for the relationship.
- Coaching is a very practical process that focuses on pragmatic relationship tips, communication skills, and identifying roadblocks to relationship success.
We Offer Evidence-Based Couples Coaching Practices
Our coaching methods can provide effective relationship help for you and your partner. At the Prescott Relationship Center, we are dedicated to using evidence-based practices for our counseling clients, then adapting those practices with our coaching clients. This means that the type of help we offer has been proven by decades of research studies to effectively help couples work towards their relationship goals.
More specifically, our coaching sessions are informed by Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Most couples don’t need to attend coaching sessions for extended periods of time.
Emotionally Focused Therapy used in the context of relationship coaching helps couples appropriately express their emotions to strengthen their connection with one another. We focus on helping couples change their patterns of interacting to enable them to meet their goals for the relationship.
Emotionally Focused Therapy used in the context of relationship counseling is highly effective. Research shows that 90% of couples who receive EFT show significant improvements. Emotionally Focused Therapy leads to increased intimacy and higher levels of satisfaction within the overall relationship. Using this model to inform our coaching could be just what you are looking for to reach the relationship you want.
The Unique Benefits of Professional Coaching
Many couples don’t consider seeking out relationship help because their problems don’t seem big enough for therapy. They don’t realize that dating coaches and lifestyle coaches often work with couples who are in healthy relationships.
Couples coaching is unique because it does more than address small dysfunctions. It also focuses on amplifying the parts of your relationship that are already healthy. A personal development coach can help you consider your mission and purpose in life as a couple. Who do you want to be? What do you want your life to look like? How can you experience a happier and more satisfying relationship that will also benefit your family and community? Couples who seek coaching often find renewed joy and purpose in their relationship, as they work towards mutual goals together.
