Whether it’s a personal, intimate, or business relationship, finding harmony with others is essential for a happy life. Yet relationships often present significant challenges—from everyday communication issues to coping with stress, finances, family, illness, and loss.
A main reason Julie began An Inspired Mind and went from credentialed Marriage and Family Therapists to a Relationship Specialist, was because she witnessed first hand the pitfalls to traditional counseling, especially when dealing with relationships. Relationships are difficult to navigate. When your relationship isn't going well, it triggers your brain and sets off some very visceral reactions that can do even more damage.
Most people would say to gather up your husband/partner/boyfried and drag him down to a marriage counseling session. You can take turns explaining each other’s shortcomings and feeling worse and worse about your relationship.
Statistics tell us that most people who go to marriage counseling get divorced, so it’s more often the last rites than the path to happily-ever-after.
Relationship coaching is not "couples therapy," just as life coaching is not psychotherapy. If therapists are surgeons, coaches are personal trainers. If you're having relationship troubles, a coach might help you clear up your thinking, get some perspective, or set inspiring new goals.
