Relationship Coaching

Relationship coaching is a life coaching specialization that helps people find greater fulfillment in their personal relationships.  A relationship coach can help you set relationship goals, understand your current partnership, thrive inside your marriage, grieve a lost loved-one, or take your long-term romance to the next level.

For some relationships, it is not necessary to work with both partners in a relationship.

Coaching helps clients let go of their own painfulful thoughts, and create their own relationship vision.  this means that clients are able to enjoy a satisffying relationship even without their partner’s participation in the coaching process.

Relationship coaches also work with people who are not yet in a relationship.  they will work with singles who have a history of troubled relationships, who have difficulty knowing what they want in a relationship, or just want to to find a deeper connection with someone.

When to Date After A Divorce

Before dating after a divorce, ask yourself these questions.

1.  What was the length of the marriage?  The longer the marriage, the longer it takes to get over the relationship.  Take time to heal or else your dates will sense that you are not ready.

2.  Are there children involved?  Realize that managing custody schedules and babysitters in order to date is difficult.  Take things slowly.  Children may not be ready to have another parental figure thrown into the mix.

3.  What was the nature of the divorce?  There is a big difference between an angry split and an amicable ending in which a couple simply “grew apart.”  The more resentment, the longer you need to take to work through the negativity.

4.  Was the divorce mutual?  If you didn’t want the marriage to end, you might date for the wrong reasons such as making your former spouse jealous or trying to lessen the pain.  The more time people take to work on themselves, the more successful they are at dating again.  Take steps to bolster your self-esteem.

5.  Are you prepared?  Know that holidays and anniversaries may bring on the blues.  Have a support network of family and friends.

How To Talk with Children About the Boston Marathon Bombing

The news continues to replay the bombings.  Parents, turn off the TV.  Young children do not process images on TV as well as adults. Parents can monitor events on smartphones and tablets while children are occupied in other activities.

Have a conversation, but tread lightly.  Clarify any misinformation.  Talk in general terms and avoid scary specifics.

Help your child feel safe.  Let the child know that he or she is safe, the family is safe, and their friends are safe.  Children may be clingy, so that extra time together and extra hugs will help them feel secure.

Encourage questions and conversation.  Remind them that these events are very unusual.

Focus on the positive.  Remind your children to look for the helpers in a scary situation.

Be on the lookout.  If your child’s behavior changes–not sleeping well, constantly feeling frightened or anxious, not wanting to be alone–offer more time for discussion.  If it continues, seek professional help.

What Do Couples Argue About the Most?

The answer is money.  70% of couples talk to their partners about money once a week.

They fought most about debt, purchases, savings for retirement, investments and loaning money.

Usually one partner is the spender and the other is the saver.

Get Off The Couch And Become An Exerciser

1.  Set a goal to make exercise and your health a priority.

2.  Choose an activity.  Do something you enjoy.  Choose an environment where you are comfortable–a gym, outdoors, at home with videos and exercise equipment.

3.  Don’t be a slave to the scale.  Body weight is not the best indicator of fitness.

4.  Establish a routine that will work for you.  Most authorites suggest first thing in the morning before work.

5.  Gain family  support.

6.  Add accountability.  Exercise with a friend.  Exercise for a cause.

Spicing Up Your Long-term Relationship

Has the specialiness of your relationship disappeared?  Here are a few suggestions for getting back on track.

1.  Disagree with respectful words.  A tiff once in a while is healthy, but don’t let it become unpleasant.

2.  Listen to your partner sharing his/her concerns.  Listen sincerely and actively.  You need not have a solution.

3.  Take a vacation.  It need not be luxurious; having fun is the idea.

4.  Change your routine.  Change the pattern of your activities.;  do the everyday things differently.

5.  Do a project together.

6.  Don’t blame your partner or yourself.

7.  Expect the relationship to sparkle.  Don’t settle for whatever rut you’re in.

8.  Make time for one another.

9.  Cook together.  Walk together.

10.  Dress to make an effort to show that you want to look good in the company of your partner.
