Relationship Coaching

“Empathy involves stepping into another person's shoes in order to gain an understanding of their emotional experience and then conveying our insights to them accordingly.” 
― Guy Winch

What is Relationship Coaching?

Relationship coaching is a life coaching specialisation that helps people find greater fulfillment in their personal relationships. A relationship coach can help you set relationship goals, understand your current partnership, thrive inside your marriage, grieve a lost loved-one, or take your engagement or pre marital knowledge to the next level.

Relationship coaches typically have experience and training in various relationship dynamics, from romantic relationships to family relations and friendships.

For some relationship coaches, it is not necessary to work with both partners in a relationship. Coaching helps clients let go of their own painful thoughts, and create their own relationship vision. This means clients are able to enjoy a satisfying relationship even without their partner's participation in the coaching process.

Relationship coaches also work with people who are not yet in a relationship. They will work with singles, divorcees who have a history of troubled relationships, who have difficulty knowing what they want in a relationship or just want to stay on track with their plan to find a deeper connection and compatibility with someone for marriage.

Other coaches meet with both partners and teach communication, conflict resolution and other coaching tools meant for couples.

Relationship coaches, just like life coaches, take healthy people and make them high performing. A relationship coach can help you quickly uncover the essence of what you want out of a partnership, guide you around painful issues, and create a safe cocoon as you face your fears and discover your true desires.

Can A Relationship Coach Save My Marriage?

Relationship coaching might help untangle love knots, but it doesn't purport to "save" marriages. Coaching clarifies relationship issues - separating what we can control with what we cannot. It brings the bright light of awareness into the hidden corners of resentment, fear and avoidance.

Even if only one spouse decides to hire a coach, when he or she lets go of mental suffering, the burden on the marriage could also be lightened.


Marriages often benefit from coaching, but each marriage has its' own unique set of difficulties, so it is impossible to say whether or not a marriage will grow stronger through the process of coaching.

Can A Relationship Coach Help Me Keep My Family Together?

Relationship coaches help families get around painful issues, but it doesn't promise to "keep families together." Coaching brings a family's problems out into the light, where they can be considered openly. For example, it might help individuals to see what part they play in the family dynamic-what is their business, and what is somebody else's business.

Even if only one family member decides to hire a coach, the relationships between members often improve as the old painful feelings are addressed.

Families do benefit from coaching, but a family is a unique set of people, each of who has their own concerns. Some families might grow closer through the process of coaching, and others might not.
