A relationship life coach helps people to address issues and find greater fulfillment in their personal relationships. Similar to how a life coach can get you to make the best of your life, a relationship coach prompts you to set goals for your relationship, understand your current partner better, help you to thrive in your marriage, help you get over an ex or take the next step in a long-term romance.
These types of coaches have experience in a wide array of relationship dynamics aside from romantic ones including those with family and friends. In some cases a relationship coach only needs to work with one member of a relationship (unlike a marriage counsellor, for example) to help with relationship issues. The goal is to help an individual to decide what they want from a relationship, help with painful emotions and provide a ‘safe space’ for them to face their relationship fears and open up about their true desires.
