Couples Relationship Coaching - 29th June & 6th July


Coaching is a powerful approach to helping couples build and improve their relationship. For many, a lifelong couple relationship is one of their deepest yearnings. Yet for many of us it’s one of the hardest things we do. It can sometimes feel like a lonely journey. Coaching can provide the support couples need to build the flourishing relationship they want. Without the perceived stigma of counselling, it can bring a positive, forward-looking framework to build the future they want.

Keith & Juliet Johnson have supported hundreds of couples over the last decade. They are both Barefoot trained coaches and since 2015 have run a coaching practice together coaching couples in marriage and relationship issues. Combining a coaching approach with robust research-based tools they have developed a distinctive framework for coaching couples and time and again have seen relationships transformed as couples find new ways to move forward together.

This course provides an introduction to their approach and will give participants an understanding of how to translate their coaching skills to work with couples, learn specific couple-centric tools and develop a framework for couple coaching assignments. It will be a highly interactive day with participants role playing couple scenarios – so will definitely be fun!
