Whether you need Marriage Coaching or want to become a Marriage Coach, listen in to tap into a radically different way of helping yourself and others. Consider powerful questions such as these, what does your marriage need right now? And what would it look like if your marriage flourished?

In this episode, we’ll dive deep into this distinct way of proactively working with couples by sharing:

  • The major differences between Marriage Coaching and Marriage Counseling so you can be clear about what to expect.
  • How to coach the marriage, not the individual people, so your clients can learn how to coach their own marriage.
  • How to slow a conversation down so couples can hear each other and agree on action step.
  • How to know if a person is a good candidate for marriage coaching and how to make the referral.
