What is possible in your relationship?
Love one another but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
How can a couple really eat of your bread but not from the same loaf? I have seen that life coaching can powerfully evolve a committed couple towards that special way of being. Over the past five years I have worked with hundreds of clients many of whom are in a significant relationship, yet so often the other partner can feel excluded from the process. A wonderful opportunity exists when two people harmonise their personal growth within the supportive bounds of a loving relationship. Life coaching can reveal individual paths and help couples harmonise those paths to powerfully work for the relationship.
Couples coaching follows a similar process to individual coaching. The early phases of our coaching work are usually centred around AWARENESS. With deep support, the client becomes aware of their current life situation and their relationship to that situation. Working together we often reveal unique wisdom and guidance from the heart and we arrive at an honest realisation of what is working and what needs to be changed. Coaching is only useful if real change takes place, right? So we then move onto the all important ACTION phase of our work where we evolve a plan of action, and put in place a clear progression of goals and steps that will make the onwards journey a reality. Powerful stuff when you are so supported. When I'm only working with one half of the relationship it is important for the client (to the extent that it makes sense for them) to take into account the needs of their partner, adjusting their plans accordingly.
"His new endeavor hadn’t been going so well, and his ability to be the breadwinner was in rapid decline. He’d been miserable about this, felt useless, was losing himself emotionally and letting himself go physically. And now he wanted out of our marriage; to be done with our family."
When I work with couples we undertake a similar coaching process that deeply considers the needs of each individual AND the needs of the relationship. What results is a very unique opportunity to honestly embrace individual needs within the powerful structure of a supportive loving relationship. The most powerful relationships are those that enable individual growth journeys with full understanding and support of each partner.... Allowing each string to be unique and alone, yet quivering with the same music of a powerful relationship. Harmonised.
How are we going to have peace on the planet when we can't have peace between two people who are supposed to be in love?
What Couples Coaching Offers
If you don't have the relationship of your dreams, or you feel that your relationship is ripe for becoming evolutionarily sweet, things can change — and you can do something about it. The only question is what to do. That's where couples coaching can help. Couples coaching offers new perspectives and positive options. Coaching provides you with new strategies and tools for overcoming challenges. The process is simple, the first few sessions are all together, we then go off onto honest individual journeys, and then we come back together to empower the confluence of these individual journeys. The result from this held, supported space is an opportunity to co-create very beautiful, powerful loving relationships. Couples coaching is not intended to replace relationship counselling or therapy, and is best applied in healthy alive relationships. The couple will always define clear goals for the work to be undertaken, allowing a diverse range of changes to be supported.
I also offer life coaching specifically for men or women separately.
