Counseling did not work for us so coaching won’t work either.
Counseling and coaching are different. Coaching facilitates a process of personal discovery where couples come to agreements about what they will do differently to get different results. It focuses on specific behavior changes to resolve issues so couples can achieve their common and mutually agreed upon goals. Many couples comment that coaching was more effective than counseling because they learned specific tools that worked for them.
We’ll never be able to resolve our issues.
Many couples get “stuck” in the same patterns of relating to each other and they have a sense of “here we go again” when certain issues come up. Issues are not resolved and frustrations build. Coaches provide a new perspective, help couples gain awareness about what underlies their issues and then help them create agreements so they can resolve issues and feel good about each other again.
I can’t be open and honest with my spouse.
There is no hope for change in our marriage.
My spouse doesn’t want coaching, so it won’t work.
