Everything that we do as Human Beings revolves around our relationships with one another. We desire our relationships to be harmonious, balanced and fulfilling. Our focus is to enhance your skills and knowledge in order for intimacy to blossom in your life NOW. Our relationships with each other, especially personal or intimate relationships, require an ability to be open, honest and vulnerable. We haven't always had a safe place to learn how to be that honest and vulnerable. The good news is that healthy relationship skills can be learned, and unhealthy relationship patterns can be changed. We assist you to develop and fine-tune their skills in order to create balanced and fulfilling relationships is the role of a Relationship Coach. Intimacy: Intimacy Coaching helps individuals and couples to achieve effective communication, relationship fulfillment, and increased sexual confidence and pleasure. Our focus is to enhance your skills and knowledge in order for intimacy to blossom in your life NOW. We assist you in overcoming your concerns in a relaxed and personalized format through which you will be taught life-changing information about your body, sexual system, desires, habits and techniques. Sex: Sex Coaching is a more recent and somewhat broader approach to addressing concerns about sexual functioning and satisfaction, where specific sexual disorders and dysfunctions are not present. Typically, clients play a larger role in defining their goals and take more responsibility for accomplishing them. The goals are more likely related to self-awareness, enhanced erotic responsiveness, and emotional intimacy. Our focus is to provide information, suggestions, and support for beginning new ways of thinking, behaving, and responding. This often includes a much broader array of home assignments.
