How exciting that you’re interested in becoming a Relationship Coach! This means you likely have a big heart and a passion for helping others build strong, healthy, loving relationships. We’re so glad you are here and can’t wait to support you in any possible way to pursue this calling.
Of course, before you can start effectively working with clients, you need to establish yourself as an expert in the field and build a strong foundation for your relationship coaching business.
Here are 5 steps to take if you’re looking to become a Relationship Coach:
To become a successful relationship coach, it’s important to have a strong understanding of human psychology, communication, attachment theory, nervous system regulation, conflict resolution, and the science of attraction, sexuality, and relating.
These topics are fascinating and completely life-changing to learn about and will not only help your clients — but all of your own relationships as well. It is an investment in learning that pays off for a lifetime.
We love and are so honored to give students the comprehensive roadmap for all-things-relationships in our Thriving Relationship Coach Certification program. (Of course, in the process, we are also passionate about guiding students through their own transformational process that improves their own relationships too).
It is so exciting that, as we help others, our own life becomes exponentially better too!
- Have concrete tools.
Did you know research shows that couples often get worse after going to traditional relationship counseling? It’s sad but true. And there is a reason for this. Many well-meaning relationship and marriage therapists lack concrete tools to get couples out of conflict and on the path to thriving in their love.
We highly recommend that you have proven, powerful, and repeatable formulas and processes for couples to hold onto — and that they can go home with to keep practicing.
Your clients will feel deeply supported by this and will love the added value of feeling empowered with something practical, doable, and tangible.
In our Thriving Relationship Coach Certification program, we are on a mission to help relationship coaches around the world know how to truly get results. With our method, clients don’t simply come to sessions to argue in front of a mediator,.
Instead, we have 50+ scientifically-backed and signature tools that work, that couples LOVE, and that give you massive credibility as a coach. You won’t find these tools elsewhere, and coaches in our program get exclusive rights to use them in their own practice.
- Gain experience.
As you’re learning about relationship coaching, we highly recommend looking for opportunities to gain practical experience.
This can include volunteering at a counseling center, interning with a relationship coach, posting about the opportunity on online forums, or working with friends and family members to practice your coaching skills.
In our Thriving Relationship Coach Certification program, we give you everything you need to start seeing practice clients after only a few short weeks. You will be amazed by the a-ha’s and breakthroughs you are able to facilitate — right away.
Develop your overall coaching skills.
To become an effective relationship coach, you’ll need to develop strong overall coaching skills.
This includes things like active listening, asking powerful questions, providing feedback, the secrets to building instant rapport, and helping clients set and achieve goals. Of course, we cover all of this in our Thriving Relationship Coach Certification program.
Build your relationship coaching business.
Once you’ve established yourself as a relationship coach, it’s important to build your brand and establish a strong online and/or local presence.
This includes creating a website, developing social media profiles, and creating content such as blog posts and videos that demonstrate your expertise and attract potential clients.
We love setting up our students with all of this and more in the “business bootcamp” portion of our Thriving Relationship Coach Certification program.
We don’t want anything standing in the way of you sharing your gifts, living a life of meaning and purpose, and spreading more love in the world!
By following these steps and continuing to develop your knowledge and skills, you can become a successful relationship coach and help others build strong, healthy relationships. How amazing!
