Why Every Relationship Needs a Relationship Coach

Cast Away is a great example of just how essential our relationships are. Take them away and life becomes meaningless. However, every relationship encounters difficulties and challenges. During rough times, it is frustrating and painful. A simple problem may escalate into a serious one if not acknowledged and resolved. Dysfunctional homes, divorce, drugs and crimes are often the direct result of broken relationships.

The Hollywood movie “Cast Away”, which starred Tom Hanks was a commercial success not only because of its famous stars and excellent production; Part of its huge success was the important message it conveyed to the audience. Tom Hank’s portrayal of a man who lived alone in an isolated island for several years after his plane crashed made us feel how miserable it is to exist without other people. So lonely he was for companionship, that he invented a “human friend” to whom he could talk to. It was an innanimate volley-ball, among all of his salvaged things, which he took and painted a human face on, with his own blood, and dubbed him "Wilson".

Cast Away is a great example of just how essential our relationships are. Take them away and life becomes meaningless. However, every relationship encounters difficulties and challenges. During rough times, it is frustrating and painful. A simple problem may escalate into a serious one if not acknowledged and resolved. Dysfunctional homes, destructive relationships, divorce, drugs and crimes are often the direct result of broken relationships.

Due to the many problems that beset so many relationships, people are becoming more interested with the idea of relationship coaching. Relationship coaching is a service given by a professional coach, to clients who are undergoing challenges in their relationships. Unlike relationship counseling, which is preformed by a psychiatrist or counselor, relationship coaching doesn't focus on what is wrong with a relationship, but what is right with it. We cannot change the past, but we can influence the future, and it all starts with emotional fulfillment within oneself. Also unlike relationship counseling or therapy, coaching clients are often aware that their challenges can be turned around. They are very self aware, and are ready to build bridges and achieve true fulfillment with their partners.

Your relationship coach will often observe first, where they can note any challenges in the relationship, from an unbiased, outsider’s viewpoint, thus providing a fresher and more enlightened outlook on the situation. Many times, it's some simple fundamentals being ignored, that are causing the conflicts in your relationship. When they begin to feel like they are beyond the grasp and understanding of the clients, that's when your coach jumps in to make sense of everything and help you get back on track.

We all need a shoulder to cry on from time to time, and often our families and friends take on that role very well. However, sometimes these people may take sides or show biased opinions which could worsen the situation, or instigate more challenges and conflicts for you. This is another area where your relationship coach becomes your love-pot-of-golden-knowledge, as a relationship coach does not show partiality. It is your coaches job to study the dynamics of your unique relationship situation carefully before giving his or her opinions, and to ensure that both you and your partner have your needs met in healthy ways. This is the most logical reason why relationship coaching is essential to every relationship. A relationship coach who is sincere and truly concerned about his or her clients, can well be the bridge necessary for them to reach more fulfilling and happier relationships that stand the test of time.
