Myths About Relationship Coaching
If you’re like me, having been to personal and couple’s counseling plenty but never having had a coach except in school sports, then counseling is probably your point of reference when you picture professional help with your relationship.
That’s all any of us had for a long time.
If you’ve already been to marriage counseling, as so many people have, and that didn’t work, why would coaching be any better? Or if your experience in counseling was painful, that might be your view of what relationship coaching is like too.
But relationship coaching is very, very different.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about 3 common myths about relationship coaching:
- I’ll share the huge differences between coaching and counseling–and the surprises women find when they get relationship coaching on our campus.
- My guest Jill was proud of being an independent, can-do military wife who handled everything, and it was her sister’s marriage that was crumbling, not hers. But as she looked for ways to support her sister, she realized that her own marriage was full of resentment and lacking in intimacy. But today her marriage is so stable and loving, and such a source of strength that they volunteered for a six-month deployment. Her husband calls her every day without fail. She’s going to share exactly what she did to bring back the love so you can do it too.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week will have you looking in all the wrong places if what you want is to feel loved and adored.
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
