Almost everyone is either part of a couple or wants to be. Often people seek my help in trying to find that special someone, or to make a dating relationship successful.

Once in a committed relationship, the real couples work begins.

Some relationships are rescue jobs, where one partner “fixes’ the other. Some involve a stuck pattern in which the more partner A under-functions, the more B over-functions. Some clients need help reclaiming power which has been usurped by a controlling partner.

Others are struggling with whether to stay or go, and what effect either decision will have on their children.

In-laws and children increase pressure upon the couple. Money, sickness, jealousy, infidelity, secrets–these and more are the issues I work with in couples coaching.

I can help even if only one partner is willing to seek coaching. If one person changes, the other partner cannot stay the same.

Change is always possible, even if all you change is your own attitude.
