Conflict is part of life. Sometimes it's simple to solve — a discussion, an apology, and you move on.
But sometimes the issues get so tangled that it makes life a painful experience of backbiting, recriminations, anger, and hurt.
A relationship is when two or more people work at getting along. A difficult relationship may be between you and:
Your children or teens
Spouses, significant others or lovers
People in dating relationships
A “relationship” is when two or more people work at getting along. When a relationship matters, it’s important to fix the problems — the sooner, the better – before permanent damage can be done.
Conflicts may have many sources:
Differences in values
Assuming that we understand or are understood
Not catching subtle messages from the other person
Sending conflicting signals
Many other communications mishaps
Couple or Group Coaching
Relationship coaching allows the involved parties to sit with a neutral mediator who can notice where communication goes astray.
In this setting, each person can air his or her feelings in the company of a non-partial listener, without interruption. That provides an environment where it’s safe to say what you feel, where a caring and non-judgmental mediator can help make space for real communication to happen.
In this setting, you can also learn new communications skills and discover what your partner in the relationship is really looking for.
Individual coaching supports you as you learn new communications skills. I can help you de-tangle corrupted communication between friends, workmates and family. Individual coaching also provides you a safe place to air your feelings of confusion, hurt and anger.
Starting a Relationship?
The beginning of a relationship is a perfect time to set good communications habits and parameters for healthy growth in the relationship, wherever it may lead.
Maybe you want to learn how to start dating. Perhaps you have been out of the dating market for a while and want to brush up on your relationship and listening skills.
Maybe you want to learn know the difference between a healthy relationship and an unhealthy relationship.
Perhaps you are thinking about marriage and want to make sure that you enter this commitment with your partner on the same page regarding important issues such as money, children, religion and more.
