The decision to stay or go is complex & nuanced.

It’s not as simple as writing a lists of pros and cons, in fact, there is no 'right' answer. Any decision you make will be challenging and rewarding in different ways, so it's important to explore all the possibilities before you make a decision that you can’t unmake.

This guide frames some considerations, and shares the commonalities for individuals & couples who are also trying to decide: “Should I Stay or Should I Go?”

How is Marriage Counselling different to Relationship Coaching?

Relationship coaching shares many of the same tools & techniques that are used in traditional marriage counselling or couple therapy.

The key difference is the training and qualifications of each practitioner, the school of therapy that informs their approach, and the requirements of professional bodies for registration and supervision. In Australia, coaching does not have a regulating body, nor requirements for registration or supervision.

Having said that, my commitment to professionalism and high standards means that I continually participate in ongoing education, and seek out mentoring from professionals in this space.

Are you SICK of talking your problems to death? Going around in circles, only to end up back at square one?

You’re definitely in the right place!

It can be exhausting, frustrating, and ultimately heartbreaking to have the same old conversations ad infinitum, only to find yourself back at square one, wondering "are we compatible at all?"

So, yeah, you love each other, but there is still something vital missing for you and you wonder if you are still "in love".

Would you like to understand the UNDERLYING PATTERNS that CAUSE your conflict so you can get UNSTUCK?

Relationship challenges are found in the dynamics BETWEEN people. They are the result of your differences in culture, family, lived experience, and other contextual elements that create each of your approaches to life. In fact, a longitudinal study has shown that there's no difference in objective compatibility between couples who are happy or unhappy. Compatibility is NOT a thing.

The most important factor is  your understanding of those differences and the way you choose to navigate them together. Until you understand the deeper roots of that dynamic,  you will continue to fall into the same old patterns of conflict.

Are you ready to learn TOOLS and STRATEGIES so you know what to DO, instead of just talking about problems?

It is important and helpful to talk about your your problems, but unless you find a way to SOLVE them, you can actually be making things worse.

Solving relationship issues requires a combination of education, skills, and strategy. What I find, time and time again, is that relationships are failing because couples are relying on love, but don’t understand the fundamental building blocks for relationship success.

Marriage counselling, couples therapy and relationship coaching are all great ways to work on your relationship - I work in a way that is strategic and teaches you what to DO in order to get the results you want.

Which modalities inform your work?

I am a Relationship Coach, a certified NLP Practitioner, and an internationally accredited extended-DISC Consultant.

I use a combined approach of Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Instant Insight Communication Systems™, e-DISC Behavioural Profiling, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and inspired by the work of Alice Haemmerle, Michaela Boehm, Steve James, Brené Brown, Esther Perel, and Dr Alexandra Solomon.

Bringing my own unique mix of life experience and study, I work with people to make sure they have actionable steps to take every time to help them bridge the gap.

How do we GET STARTED?

Whichever modality you choose, whether it is marriage counselling, relationship coaching, or another form of couples therapy, it is important that you like your practitioner and feel like they "get" you.

It’s also really important that BOTH partners meet & choose the practitioner you will be working with. That way we are all on the same page from the get go.

That is why the first step is for us to have a phone conversation. It gives us all an opportunity to see if we are a good fit, and allows you to ask any questions you may have. That usually takes about 15 - 20 minutes (depending on your questions!).
