Marriage Counseling & Couples Coaching

HOW IS COUPLES COACHING DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE COUNSELING?

In Couples Coaching, Gloria will work with you in a collaborative effort to get you to a more satisfying love relationship…to-rediscover what brought you together in the first place.  There is no mental health diagnosis.  The focus is not on what’s wrong, but on what is right and can be strengthened.  Your privacy is protected:  there is no insurance involvement unless you choose it, so that nothing is on any public record.  Couples coaching assesses your needs and then focuses on learning the skills to keep your love life renewed and energized.

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

The goal of Couples Coaching is for you to have the best relationship possible, which helps to prevent emotional separation and/or legal divorce.

Traditionally, couples don’t seek help when problems are still small.  Problems in your love relationship do not just go away.

Not addressing your couple relationship problems is like planting IEDs:  they’re just buried….and you don’t see them until you step in just the right place:  and then BOOM….the explosion!

Traditionally, married people don’t go to counseling until they are at the door to divorce.  It’s a last ditch effort to try and ‘save it.‘   Many times it is much too late to help, because hurt and resentment have been building for a long time.

 

WHY DO COUPLES WAIT SO LONG?…to Seek the Help They Need?

Because:  they are secretly hoping it will just go away.   They are afraid if they address the issues right now, it may lead to divorce.

It’s actually the opposite:  the more aware you are — that you could be in the 50% of couples who end up divorced — the more you will work on the little things that keep love alive.

Because many many couples wait until the bitter end to get help, they think that people who go to relationship counseling seem end up  divorced. Contact me today to learn more.
