Close personal relationships are a basic human need, yet many are lacking fulfilling, positive and significant interpersonal relationships. Why Coaching is the new approach for relationship fulfilment.
Today life is more complex than ever. We’re working harder and longer but also living in nicer houses, driving better cars and traveling to places we never imaged on our 1.7 holidays abroad a year. Yet, despite the huge life enhancing developments of this era divorce rates are at the highest ever. As many as 6 in 10 are unhappy in their relationship and 1 in 5 Brits report feeling lonely or without a meaningful relationship in their life.
Traditionally, methods of addressing dating and relationship success have been utilized at a point of crisis in a remedial manner and have carried connotations of psychological distress or deep-rooted pathological issue. Less focus has been placed upon helping people adopt an approach that fosters fulfillment, goal attainment and improved performance in a positively oriented manner.
Coaching offers a far more pragmatic and stigma free methodology. It is goal focused and addresses current and future goals rather than trying to make sense of the past. This means clients walk away from each session feeling invigorated, encouraged and more focused on what it is they want moving forward and how they intend on achieving it. Whether it is simply dealing with a life/work balance that is causing a divide or disparity in a relationship, bringing life back to a relationship that has lost its spark or working on self confidence to meet someone new and develop a meaningful and fulfilling relationship, coaching guides a client through utilization of relevant methodology and frameworks to get from where they are now to where they want to be.
Often when we meet an old friend they may ask, ‘What’s new?’ How often do we see in a New Year and look back feeling like little has changed in our interpersonal relationships, or even that there has been gradual decline in them, despite work and career flourishing. Often we continue in ritualistic patters of behavior with seemingly no change of trajectory despite that underlying feeling of discontentment. Relationship and dating coaching offers the accountability that many of us need to create real change by guiding clients and offering support for them to make tangible progress in relationship enhancement.
Relationship coaching is suitable for absolutely anyone looking to harbor a fulfilling and meaningful relationship. Whether you are in a new relationship or marriage and looking to maintain current harmony and set positive parameters to move forward together, long term partners looking to regain excitement and intimacy or singles looking to find a potential mate and develop successful dating strategies.
