What an awful time you are having – the ruminations, over and over again, are exhausting and it’s so confusing .… It’s totally normal to feel this way but you can drive yourself crazy when you can’t make a decision. Endless thoughts such as “have I tried hard enough?”, “will the kids be okay?”, “would it be better if I waited?”. There’s also a chance that you are simply “over it”, exhausted and putting your dilemma in the “too hard basket”.
I know that this decision, especially if you have children, is one of the most significant decisions of your life. It may even be the most significant decision of your life.
But it’s so difficult to make good decisions when you're emotionally overwhelmed and exhausted. It’s almost too much to expect that you will be in the right mind-set to do a 360° assessment of your situation, be able to make well-informed decisions and then communicate what you want for yourself and those you love.
So, coaching begins with a focus on your well-being and supporting you to be your best-self. Throughout coaching, this will be a touchstone. I then work with you to determine your goals from which practical strategies and actions will follow. This includes:
The goals of coaching are as unique as the clients themselves. Your goal might be:
Knowing you have done your best to save your relationship is a gift to your future self and is incredibly reassuring:
I truly believe that having a loving and supportive partner is one of life’s blessings. And if you are not certain about the decision, it is worth taking steps to do what is reasonably possible to “save” the relationship.
Coaching works on your best self, whether that ends up being within the relationship or preparing for life after the relationship, it’s “win-win” coaching.
