Relationship coaching is basically the application of coaching to these both spheres of life, the personal and business relationships. One very important thing that we must anyway set clear from the very outset is the fact that in spite of the success that relationship coaching has had for many who have had issues with their relationships, it should not be meant to take the place of the therapy offered by the trained and licensed clinicians that may be necessary for the treatment of the mental, psychological and emotional disorders. A number of people will always be urged to seek the services of the professional relationship coaches when they happen to be facing some issues with their relationships and the fact is that this is one positive and results-oriented profession that is intended to enable normal people to achieve the most of their personal and business goals. In as much the relationship coaches are indeed experts in the field, their task is to enable success for their candidates without necessarily giving advice or what may be deemed as professional opinion.
The term “relationship coach” has been widely applied for many years a number of professionals such as Psychotherapists, Social workers, Marriage and Family therapists, Psychologists and the like professionals in the entrepreneurial para-professions. But anyway, we will take a special look at what relationship coaching as an area of specialty has to offer us.
The first area we will take a look at is that of Couples coaching for the sake of this particular post. There are in fact a lot different kinds of couples and this means that couples are never all alike anyway. The couples, as wide in sorts and kinds as they happen to be, can be grouped into four major categories and these are such as the Dating couples, the Pre-committed couples, the Pre-marital couples and the Committed couples. The Dating couples category is one in which belongs the couples that have the on-going fun and recreational kind of relationship between them. Dating couples will seek the attention of a relationship coach when either one or both of them has the interest of taking their relationship to the next level. The next category we will take a look at of the couples is that which is referred to as the Pre-committed couples. The Pre-committed couples are basically the couple class where you will find the parties in the relationship cutting their dating of the others and remaining only to date the one with whom they have the exclusive relationship. This is one stage that is always marked with a lot of cohabitation for the couple but anyway, there is often no case of long term commitments between the couple at the particular stage of their relationship.
