Relationship Coaching – Online or in-person
Relationship coaching can help you if you are single or in a relationship where you are dealing with any of these issues:
- Are you feeling fulfilled, connected and energetic in your relationship?
- Do you want to build self-awareness and confidence?
- Do you want to remove relationship obstacles that are holding you back?
- Do you want to reinvigorate your relationship?
- Do you want more intimacy and passion?
- Are you questioning your sexual identity or preferences?
At Successful Relationships we use Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Relational Life Therapy, the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy, PACT Relationship Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems tools and our Professional Training in Mind-Body Medicine integrating mind-body medicine into clinical practice & trauma healing. Vivian is also an Accredited Professional Sex Therapist with ASSERT – the Australian Society of Sex Educators, Researchers & Therapists. We are both trained teachers in Cultivating Emotional Balance, so we use Mindfulness skills as well.
Does online relationship coaching work?
Research consistently shows that online treatment can be very effective for many mental health issues. The previous link has the results of three studies. And here’s another two studies exploring the effectiveness of online therapy.
Consulting a well-trained relationship coach entails having honest, unbiased talks with someone who has comprehensive training and knowledge about models of relationship coaching. These are based on adult learning, psychological approaches and philosophy.
Coaching is future focused, and works on the assumption that you are whole and filled with potential. Our role is to empower you to explore and release that potential so that your relationship is successful and flourishing. This can be done with individuals and with couples.
Coaching does not encourage dependence. It is a way for you to be self empowered. As coaches, we facilitate your learning, enabling you to develop skills which help you achieve success, however you define it. Coaching is a collaborative process of facilitating your ability to direct your own learning and growth. You see results by lasting changes in self-understanding, self-concept and behaviour (Stober & Parry, 2005).
Why you might need relationship coaching
In our relationships, careers and personal enterprises we all encounter difficulties. These can be overcome by creating a coaching programme which is driven by your agenda and needs, focusing on what you want to achieve. In doing this together with us, you gain a thinking partner to help you identify what changes you want to bring into your life. Together we clarify your visions, explore options and plan the actions you can take to bring about your desired goals.
Your commitment to action is essential to your success. We are here to refine and energise your dreams until they emerge as your reality. Coaching helps move you from awareness to responsibility to action to results. Research has identified that real change occurs in predictable stages.
Most coaching is done by telephone or online, either weekly or fortnightly, with an initial face-to-face session if possible. If you’re too far away from our location, starting online can be just as effective, as the research now shows us.
Relationship coaching is for you if:
- You are single & want to learn relationship skills
- Your relationship is in trouble and you want to get back on track with your partner.
- You live together but are emotionally distant.
- You are confused about sex, sexuality, desire, eroticism or sexual identity issues
- You’re on the brink of separation, or in the middle of separation.
- You’re already separated and have minimal contact with your partner.
- There’s been an emotional affair and/or infidelity.
- You get stuck in the same old arguments about money sex, time, mess/household tasks, kids, communication styles, parenting, step-families, etc.
Relationship Coaching topics may include:
- Improving personal or professional relationships, for individuals and couples
- Raising self-awareness, self-worth and confidence in relationships
- Enhancing real intimacy and honest communication
- Increasing sexual intimacy, connection & negotiation
- Undoing sources of relationship strain, such as self-limiting habits
- Becoming clear about your relationship purpose and direction, creating common goals
- Deepening your spiritual/religious understanding
Learn to get through to your partner in a more constructive way
At Successful Relationships we help you to work smarter. You’ve no doubt tried hard enough. Maybe you’ve even given up. Maybe you’ve been doing the wrong things to get through to your partner. Successful Relationships online coaching will help you work out how you need to be, and what you need to do or say differently to get things back on track.
Plus, our online coaching can work even if your partner won’t participate. Coaching can be done with just you. By changing your approach, you will learn how to improve your relationship skills without your partner needing to be on board. If, down the line your partner changes their mind, that’s OK. We’ll help you figure out the best way to avoid separation and resolve relationship issues.
