Sometimes it is important to continue with relationship coaching even if you have seen significant improvement.
This month’s positive point with a couple came after we had worked together for a few months, with some definite improvement in their ability to communicate.
Although we were getting close to the end of the 12-week program of coaching, I knew they would benefit from more sessions as a way to solidify the new, positive habits they had created.
New, positive habits have a way of slipping back into old, negative habits if they are not embedded into our psyche.
I wasn’t sure if this couple was on the same page as me, but after spending some time talking about it, I was delighted to see that both the husband and wife were wanting to continue for a bit longer. They understood the importance of staying with it, even though there has been significant improvement.
