Benefits of Relationship Coaching

Coaching is very effective for anyone who wants life improvement and goal achievement.  Coaching is a therapeutic model used by many relationship counselors and therapists to assist people in achieving their relationship goals.  The coach assists clients in overcoming blocks, setting and achieving goals.  Psychotherapy is generally more concerned with the client’s past — working through trauma, blocks, earlier experiences, etc., whereas coaching is generally more concerned with the present and future — setting clear goals and going about attaining them.  Coaching is focused on goal achievement and movement forward.  Following are some of the benefits of Relationship Coaching.
