Repairing a relationship needs a little extra.
Thera-Coaching provides Relationship Coaching with a therapeutic bent.
Yeah, I know, that’s a mouthful but bear with me. Over the years of working with couples, I’ve realized that traditional approaches to one-on-one therapy are insufficient when applied to working with couples.
I’ve lost count of how many couples I’ve met who have been to couples therapy previously, and when I ask them how it was, they say something like, “They were lovely, but…”
Lovely is great, but you need more than lovely when repairing a relationship. Sometimes, it requires a bit of crowd control, too. Providing crowd control is why I use a Coaching approach in addition to (I hope) also being lovely.
My approach is different from traditional therapy.
I’m grateful for Relational Life Therapy’s (RLT) unique approach. Here are some ways this approach is different from traditional therapy.
Therapists and clients are equal: Therapists don’t stand above clients as experts. We’re in the thick of it with them, sharing our experiences of relational living to inspire, motivate, and build trust.
Direct (but compassionate) approach: In RLT, we’re upfront in telling clients what they’re doing to harm their relationships, and in certain situations, we tell them what to do to have emotional healing experiences.
We educate: Traditional therapy’s nurture is insufficient to provoke lasting change. We focus on educating our clients so they can continue forging authentic connections for life.
Utilize the power of personality types: For many couples, especially those with communication challenges, I utilize the power personality types, which you can learn more about here. This approach educates and coaches to help you understand and apply the knowledge of each other’s personality type in your relationship.
This approach works!
