Gone are the days where our cultural fabric is filled with positive relationship role models and mentors. Instead, we see many bad marriages coupled with high divorce rates. Further, most people enter marriage with little to no training on how to cultivate a satisfying relationship. Hence, the need for a relationship coach.
What is a relationship coach?
A relationship coach is someone trained in specific tools and theories on how to build successful marriages. They work with couples to help them resolve resentments and build intimacy on all levels, including emotional, sexual, and financial.
4 Benefits to Working with a Relationship Coach
1-To Get Unstuck
It's easy to get stuck in marriage. Most couples develop vicious cycles because of competing needs. For example, partner A struggles providing emotional intimacy because there's not enough sexual contact. In contrast, partner B struggles providing sexual contact because there's not enough emotional intimacy. Vicious cycle. Who gives in first? These types of patterns and many others turn into frustrating cycles and couples often need help to move forward, which a relationship coach can provide.
2-To Get Support
It's easy to become isolated, especially with the challenges you face in your romantic relationship. Most couples don't have others to turn to for constructive advice. Also, people usually don't want to vent about their marriage to friends or family for fear of it turning them against their partner. Therefore, many couples are isolated with their problems with no one to speak to. A relationship coach can break the isolation by giving you a safe and confidential place to process through all of your challenges and questions about your relationship.
3-To Get Trained
Most people go through hundreds and thousands of hours of training on how to be successful in their career, including college classes, certifications, and continuing education. In contrast, most people receive little to no training on how to become successful in marriage. No wonder romantic relationships can be so difficult, we haven't been properly trained! All couples need tools to be successful in their relationship and a relationship coach can provide them, such as tools on how to effectively resolve conflict, cultivate emotional intimacy, and share power on decision making.
4-To Get Hope
When couples move into winter season in their relationship it's easy to lose hope. Winter is when needs aren't being met and there's a lot of unresolved conflict and resentment. During these difficult times is when couples need help and support to see that progress is possible. Often, reading books or listening to podcasts isn't enough to move couples from winter to spring. However, a relationship coach can make all the difference by helping couples work through resentments and start meeting one another's needs again, which creates a powerful sense of hope.

How does Relationship Coaching Work?
All relationship coaching sessions are done virtually to maximize convenience for the couple. Sessions can be 45 or 90 minutes long. The first session will begin with the relationship coach meeting with each partner individually to learn more about their history for around 15 minutes each. Then, the remaining time is spent consolidating the couple's goals and areas of resentment. Subsequent sessions start by helping the couple work through areas of resentment and then building positive skills for increased intimacy and connection. Couples can sign up for three packages of coaching or begin with a free consultation to see if coaching is a good fit for them. Most couples benefit from 3-6 months of relationship coaching and progress is influenced by the couple's motivation and implementation of tools learned in between sessions.
