Couples Coaching


Couples Coaching – by Jill Candlish 

I’ve just completed my training as a Certified Relationship Coach through Dr. Wyatt Fisher’s online course and supervised practicum. Working with this licensed Psychologist and Marriage counsellor was a follow up to earning my Masters degree a few years ago with my thesis focused on how to sustain long term vibrancy in romantic relationships. I have long been passionate about this topic and am very happy to announce that I’m ready to work with couples who want to improve their romantic lives.

I have been married for over 40 years and know that seeking help with relationship work is extremely valuable in supporting and sustaining a vibrant partnership. It’s my experience that creating a stronger, more loving and fulfilling primary relationship enhances all other areas of life, and tends to naturally bring more ease to other challenges as well.

It’s important to note that coaching is not therapy, and does not delve deeply into psychological support and healing the way counselling does. Coaching sessions are for couples who have a solid intention to create a better romantic relationship and need more support, tools, techniques and acquisition of skills to do so. It’s action-based, and often gets some quick results. Setting an intention to take the time to learn and practise these new tools is key to initiating improvement. 

If we want to stay happily partnered, it’s essential to be aware of the typical patterns that confront us and cause problems. When we learn to use effective tools to increase our understanding and develop new habits and skills, we strengthen our love bond. Focusing on improving our rapport and communication dynamics can shift us into moving beyond dis-connecting behaviours and towards a more fulfilling connection. Working with a Couples Coach can inspire us to be accountable and take the time our marriage needs in order to continue to deepen in a meaningful way. 

So if you’re interested in a Couples Coaching session, or a women’s individual coaching session, get in touch. Everything we discuss in our sessions is confidential of course, and I’m willing to work out a payment, trade/service exchange agreement that works for each of us. I am available by email or text for scheduling a session on Hornby Island, or online. I look forward to working with you.
