“The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. Because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself.” ― Diane Von Furstenberg
The success of any relationship lies on how successful each person has been at being an individual. The more stable, balanced and happier you each are, the better the relationship will be. As a relationship coach, my focus, in the beginning, will be on the development of each person as an individual. I will help each of you to recognize your responsibility as active partner in the relationship by first recognizing it with yourself. The number one thing couples say is the greatest obstacle to the happy, healthy relationship they want is COMMUNICATION! But if you don't have a healthy relationship with yourself, how could you expect to have it with your partner. The goal is to have a better communication and connection with yourself, in doing so, you improve the communication and connection with your partner.
You will acquire skills that will begin to improve your relationship beginning with the very first meeting, such as:
Authentic and effective Communication Skills.
Conflict Resolution Skills so that couples can stop arguing and start resolving conflict.
Reduce Negativity and feelings of Disconnection and Misunderstanding.
Improve the quality of the Friendship and create Shared Meaning.
Life is all about relationships. Everything that we do as human beings revolves around our relationships with each other, especially personal or intimate relationships. Relationships are mirrors and provide us with an opportunity to heal our old wounds, challenge our beliefs, and grow into the adults we always wanted to become. This requires us to be open, honest and vulnerable, we haven’t always had a safe place to learn how to do so.
What is Vulnerability?
Vulnerability is scary. But it’s also a powerful and authentic way to live. According to author Brené Brown, Ph.D, LMSW, in her latest book Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead, “Vulnerability is the core, the heart, the center, of meaningful human experiences.” She defines vulnerability as “uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure.”
As your relationship coach, I will mentor you and coach you on loosing the fear of being vulnerable; and, learn to embrace it and even trust it. If you want your relationships to be harmonious, balanced and fulfilling, vulnerability is ESSENTIAL.
