Perhaps you believe your relationship is negatively affected by how you or your partner express anger or handle conflict. You don’t believe that either of you are experiencing a mental illness or serous personal problem and don’t think you need to be in psychotherapy, yet you need some advice and guidance as to how to change things for the better. Self help books are helpful but you might desire some hands on guidance without having to attend therapy sessions. Or perhaps you wonder if couples counseling or individual counseling would be helpful. Personal coaching can be a time effective, reasonable solution. Your coach will help you decide on attainable goals and direct your efforts at learning new strategies for your life or relationship. If you need further counseling, your coach will explain what your options are available and will help you locate a therapist in your community. You are in control of determining what you want out of the coaching.
