How Do I Know If I Need Couples Relationship Coaching? 

Not sure if you and your partner should go to a relationship coaching workshop? Yes, all couples fight, but it’s not always easy to determine when enough is enough. Here are some signs that you and your partner may benefit from a coaching retreat of workshops: 

  • You fight about the same issues constantly. Having the same fights over and over usually means that there is a deeper issue that needs to be addressed. 
  • Your partner doesn’t provide emotional support. If you get more support from outside of the relationship than from your partner, it might be time for an intensive workshop. 
  • You keep criticizing each other. Sure, there’s such thing as constructive criticism, receiving nothing but negative remarks from your partner is never a good sign. 
  • You feel angry with your partner all the time. If you feel constant anger and dissatisfaction in your relationship, individual relationship coaching is the best place to start.  Then you can take what you have learned and apply it to repairing and restoring the relationship with your partner. 

Do I Need Individual Coaching AND Couples Coaching? 

If your relationship with your partner is not healthy – it is a good idea to start with working on yourself and also having couples coaching sessions periodically during the process.  It is healthy and recommended to start applying what you are learning about yourself to your partner. This can – for many couples – be a form of intimacy that is crucial to repairing a challenging relationship.

  • Individual coaching focuses on the individual. This form of coaching is a good choice if you need help working through personal issues or reaching your goals. However, since individual understanding and growth are necessary for establishing healthy relationships, this type of coaching or our 5-day individual retreat at The Glass House can come prior to couples retreats.
  • Couples coaching is effective if you feel like your relationship with your partner is causing you distress and needs attention immediately. The choice between these two forms of coaching will depend on your preferences and the nature of the issue.  Our coaches can help you with a plan that will best fit your needs.  

Either way, the experienced PIVOT coaches will make sure that your intensive workshop brings you maximum benefits by targeting the core issues and allowing you to resolve them in a way that feels comfortable and is optimally effective for your particular needs.
