Couples Coaching concerns itself with multiple factors. Creating a collaborative spirit. Coming together to creatively compose something unique that is only possible through your combined efforts. Respectful and loving communication is the underlying technical coding that creates either a satisfying relationship or one that is tense, argumentative, even hostile. What is the emotional tone you’re creating?
Couples Coaching exercise
This is an intrapersonal exercise, to be done by both of you, either alone or together. Consider which way will be most effective for the two of you. Begin by closing your eyes in a safe environment, where you won’t be disturbed.
Allow yourself to relax, and let you mind begin to wander. Remember or imagine an exceptional moment. Ideally, one that the two of you have previously shared or can share together at some point. As you’re remembering, get yourself to actually see it in you mind. See where you are sitting, walking, hiking, swimming. You get the idea.
Next, focus on how this exceptional moment makes you feel right now, while you’re only imagining it. No thinking allowed. Focus only on how you feel.
How does it feel to simply hold this image in your mind? What action or series of actions will you be able to do in order to improve the likelihood that the two of you will experience this special feeling, together?
If you and your partner are seasoned with this type of work, you have the option available to you of taking “Relationship Advantages.” This is an advanced and in-depth option. It involves a total of six sessions plus one strengths-focused assessment each. We can discuss issues, however, our energy will most effectively focus on discovering and implementing your relationship and communication strengths.
If you prefer, you can secure 2 – 3 individual sessions before you decide. Please, do not wait for the two of you to agree that you have a serious issue before you come in. Preemptive coaching sessions function well as a measure against a feared or potential issue and are designed to optimize communication between yourself and your partner.
