Growing up, our minds are filled with stories of princesses and princes, adventures and excitement but with one primary ending and that is that they all live happily ever after. It is no wonder then that as we grow up, we go looking for our own special someone to walk off into the sunset with.
A romantic relationship is one of the closest forms of relationship that we have. Choosing a partner and staying together through life’s ups and downs is rarely simple – if you choose to then get married, buy a home or start a family together, well, this only adds to the complexity.
Very few relationships exist conflict free – whether it’s the odd disagreement or ‘bicker’, repeatedly arguing or you’ve lost the fun element in your relationship. As the years go by, the divorce rate seems to just increase more and more and it looks like people are no longer willing to fight for the relationship they loved so much at the beginning.
Divorce isn’t the only answer though, even if you feel you’re at the point where there is no turning back, it is worth trying everything before giving up. For many of us, our first instinct is to try and work through the problems alone, but it can be incredibly helpful to seek outside support from a professional as family and friends can be biased while a professional is not.
Relationship Coaching is designed for couples and is ideal for those who either want to save a damaged relationship or resolve issues that are threatening to damage their relationship. It is a very direct solution-focused approach which involves practical tasks and “homework tasks” and practice out of sessions in addition to discussion work. This enables couples to reconnect and really get to know and understand each other getting that ‘spark’ between them functioning and glowing. Most couples who undertake the course are pleasantly surprised at how quickly results can be achieved.
“In our experience many couples come to us already having been through traditional couple counselling elsewhere but feel that they have not achieved much or received what they need by way of guidance or direction and without the appropriate support the issue they had gone to resolve was still recurring. So they remain feeling stuck, frustrated and unhappy in their relationship” Joy Sackett Wood.
Our 12-session programme requires that you both, as a couple fully commit to your relationship and each other as an absolute priority over a period of about 3 months as it will require you both to be dedicated to this process in order to achieve the best possible, happy, positive, life changing, long lasting outcome for you both.
Many couples have achieved and enjoyed this result!
