Top 10 Things You Should Know About Relationship Coaching

    1. Relationship Coaching is not consulting or therapy.
      Coaching empowers by assuming you are the expert, fully capable of achieving your goals, and focuses on supporting you into action. Consulting typically provides advice and solutions, while therapy typically focuses on insight and emotional issues.
    2. Relationship Coaching helps you focus on the bigger picture.
      Relationship coaching is not effective when your relationship goals are isolated from the rest of your life, such as work, family, friends, wellness, spirituality, etc.
    3. Your Relationship Coach shares relationship knowledge, experience, and information without attachment.
      Sharing expertise with you as your coach is very different from any other helping relationship. It is necessary to address your relationship skills and knowledge deficits, however we do so in a way that supports you to discover and own your truth.
    4. Your Relationship Coach assumes a relationship is part of the journey, not the destination.
      We support you to focus on meaning, connection, and long-term goals, in addition to helping you find a partner or improve your  existing relationships.
    5. Relationship Coaching assumes that the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself.
      Your relationships are your mirrors from the perspective of being able to see within and what’s transpiring through your own energy, filters, and beliefs. The Law Of Attraction dictates that what is inside shows up on the outside. We help our clients take responsibility for their relationship outcomes and learn to be the partner you  want to have.

Relationship Coaching Is Unbiased, Supportive, and Helps You Create Happy, Healthy, and Harmonious Relationships

6. Your Relationship Coach does not judge any relationship as right or wrong, good or bad.
We assume you are the expert and honor your truth and agenda. While we have judgments, we do not impose them on you. We lead our clients through a process of discovery in which you are empowered to make the relationship choices that are right for you.

7. Your Relationship Coach does not get their personal needs met with you as their client or their prospective clients.
An ethical coach values being of service above all else, holds the coaching relationship sacred, and does not allow a personal agenda to interfere with doing so.

8. Relationship Coaching addresses sabotaging attitudes and choices without making you wrong.
We skillfully help you become aware of the connection between your attitudes (beliefs, interpretations, etc.), choices and consequences, and support  you to make your own judgments and decisions about them in light of your Vision, Purpose, Requirements, Needs, and Goals.

9. Relationship Coaching is neutral about the outcome for pre-committed relationships, and an advocate for committed relationships.
We value using the opportunity while single to make conscious long-term relationship choices, and believe in the power and necessity of commitment to make those choices work and be fulfilling.

10. Your Relationship Coach “walks their talk” by continually addressing their own personal and relationship development, challenges, and goals.
We know that we can only help you along paths that we have traveled ourselves, and no further, so we must continually strive to be conscious and intentional in our lives and relationships. This includes furthering our own learning and development by working with a coach or mentor, on-going training, and other means.

Hi, I’m Dr. Dar…

If I could share just one thing with you today, let it be this: you have the power to shape your relationship into what you want it to be.

I am Dar, the Relationship Healer. I help couples to solve the communication and relationship issues that could potentially tear them apart. 

Until I started on the coaching path that led to my formulation of the Relationship Languages, most of the problems in my life had been due to problematic relationships… relationships where I felt unable to communicate, where I was not being heard, where I was not feeling understood. 

I have learned that, to create happy, healthy, and harmonious relationships even when you have differences, you have to learn how to give and receive communication in a healthy way. You have to feel safe expressing how you feel and what you need. 

That’s the beauty of the Relationship Languages. Once understood, they are the key to safe, curious communication. 

I’m here to help you on your journey to understanding and being understood. 

From my heart to yours,
