Marriage counseling has been a popular method for couples to solve their conflicts and improve their relationships for decades. Popularized by TV shows and movies, it’s become the go-to treatment for any problems that might pop up in a marriage, but how effective is it really? While both counseling and coaching have their benefits, let’s see why the Marriage Mastery coaching program by Pinnacle of Man looks like the logical step forward in the evolution of solving troubled marriages. By providing direct communication and understanding from a coach, you’re able to achieve personal growth and direct action steps on what to do next, all of that without the emasculating feeling many feel during counseling. On the other side, marriage counseling is more of a slow burn, forcing both you and your partner to resolve your conflicts together through introspection and communication. At best, it’s growing together with the person you love, but at worst, it’s less a therapy session and more of a back and forth argument with her listing all your shortcomings in front of a stranger in the middle playing referee.
Marriage counseling typically involves a therapist using various techniques, such as role-playing, to help you and your loved one have better communication and understanding. On the other hand, marriage coaching is more focused on personal growth and development, with licensed therapists serving as coaches helping couples identify their values, goals, and strengths, and coaching them on their path to success.
So why is Pinnacle of Man’s Marriage Mastery coaching plan the better option? For one, coaching is more solution focused. Coaches help couples (or individuals in the relationship) identify their strengths and give step by step guides on how to build a stronger foundation for their relationship and themselves. Additionally, coaching is more action-oriented. At Pinnacle of Man, Coaches encourage you to take action and make changes in your life, rather than just communicating your problems, or as we like to call it, transformation over information.
Another advantage of coaching is that it is more personal. While counseling is often standardized and follows a certain protocol, coaching can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each couple. Marriage Mastery Coaches find the best way forward for your unique challenges and help you stick to it. This personalized approach can lead to more effective results quicker.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of coaching is that it focuses on personal growth and development (hence the name Pinnacle of Man), which means that you can work on fixing the relationship even when the wife is checked out. Unlike counseling, which often finds ways of getting sidetracked and isn’t possible without your partner, coaching helps you quickly identify the underlying reasons for the frustrations and fights and helps you work on them yourself. By addressing these root causes with a trained professional, you develop the skills needed for a healthy and strong marriage. This can lead to long-lasting results, reconnection and a happier, healthier relationship overall.
If you are looking to improve your marriage and build a stronger foundation for your future, marriage coaching trumps couples therapy in most cases.
