No relationship is easy. Even when you and your partner are happy together, there is still effort required to keep your partnership afloat.
That’s where a relationship coach comes in. If you haven’t been to a relationship coach before, it’s understandable to feel some hesitation about making an appointment.
Is seeing a relationship coach worth the effort? What does scheduling an appointment mean for your relationship?
There are numerous benefits to couples coaching, but before even going into them, we need to address a common misconception. This may even be the reason you’re worried about bringing the subject up with your partner.
In short: many believe that couples coaching or therapy is a bad sign. That people only seek professional guidance when they are on the brink of divorce.
This is completely and utterly false. While many people struggling with their partner do seek out relationship help, so do a number of happy couples. People for whom divorce hasn’t even entered their minds.
These couples aren’t trying to “fix” anything. They simply want to improve and deepen the beautiful relationship that they already have.
Do not let the fear of “admitting” that you want to see a relationship coach hold you back from the benefits, lessons, and tools that you can gain.
What kinds of benefits, lessons, and tools?
How to keep your marriage fresh.
Some couples aren’t unhappy… they’re just bored. Old habits and routines can wear us down and make us wonder what lies beyond our marriage.
Let’s rein it in. Couples coaching can help you keep your marriage fresh and get to the root of why things are feeling ho-hum.
How to reflect and recuperate.
So you’ve had a fight. Rather than just “moving on,” ask yourself (and your partner) what you can learn from the situation.
How did you handle the conflict? Why did you choose to handle the conflict in the way that you did? What can you do differently, and what can you do to prevent the conflict from arising again?
How to learn from past mistakes.
Life is all about making mistakes. Whether you have been married for decades or are just a few months into your first (or second) marriage, there is a lot to learn. Many of our best lessons can be found in our past mistakes.
Think you could use a few of these tools in your marriage? Counseling with a New York couples coach can be a wonderful way to grow your marriage and bring more happiness to your lives.
Rooting for you!
