What will happen during the sessions?
It’s normal to have questions about what happens during your sessions, especially if you have never done this before.
During our initial session you and your partner will explain what you would like to see accomplished during the session. The first session may be difficult and sometimes painful because you will explain what is bothering you the most about your relationship. By giving your coach the details of the problems you have been experiencing we can help you identify the priorities.
We then focus on the issues and tackle them one by one. Tools such as fair fighting and communication skills, designed to improve the relationship, educate our couples to improve their relationship. A little homework may be given.
What's the difference between coaching and counseling?
Traditional therapy involves spending a lot of time determining how a couple got into the rut they’re in by exploring childhood issues, etc. While at times this can be useful, we feel it is more important to identify the pressing issues our couples are facing now, and focus on the future.
You can come alone and work on what is important to you. Many individuals enjoy the coaching process and feel like they are getting more out of this process than any other they have attempted.
How often should my partner and I have sessions?
The first few sessions usually are once a week. We normally see a big improvement in your relationship during that time. After that, every two weeks then only when you feel you need it.
How long is the session?
(*1 Hour) One hour or Recommended is (*1 1/2 Hour) an hour and a half.
How much does it cost?
In Office Sessions prepaid cost $89.00 per hour. Saving the $10 additional cost just by prepaying for your next visit in advance.
Are the sessions covered by insurance?
No, but considering you will have far fewer sessions than traditional therapy, it will possibly cost you less in the long run, even with insurance.
What if my partner refuses to come to the sessions?
Sometimes one partner is reluctant to come in. Getting your own individual help can drastically change your relationship by learning tools and strategies to deal with your partner and improve your self esteem.
