Relationship coaching does not aim to eradicate all conflict. Conflict is a natural part of all relationships and can be an opportunity for deepening our connection. But relationships get stuck when they are hijacked by:
When we feel our needs are not being met by our partner, in the way we expect or desire, it can cause anxiety, frustration, and resentment.
It's Hard To Know Where To Turn
There’s no shortage of people weighing in with helpful advice – parents, pastors, sanctimonious siblings – along with self help books and personal development courses, all claiming to solve your relationship problems. It can be confusing, overwhelming and emotionally draining.
How do you make the right choice to get your relationship back on track?
Before we go there, let me share a bit about me.
For the past 20 years I’ve been helping partners build stronger relationships, by identifying the thoughts, feelings and physical sensations that fuel their conflict and restructuring the language and behaviours that support a happier, healthy way forward.
With a wealth of experience in both coaching and counselling, I bring together the best of both worlds, drawing on such powerful modalities as Emotion-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Internal Family Systems Therapy.
My commitment is to ensure that you notice real, positive change in your relationship after just a few sessions, setting you on a path of greater harmony and connectedness, well into the future.
I can make this commitment to you because I have witnessed, time after time, the power of providing a safe supporting space and guiding partners to turn back to one another, and to their relationships, and begin rebuilding their emotional connection.
It is a privilege to witness such powerful transformations, so let me introduce you to a simple framework that will help you to avoid some of the common factors in dysfunctional relationships. I call them…
The 9 R's of Relationship Conflict First Aid
The 9 R’s of Relationship Conflict First Aid are a strategic response to the most destructive elements of dysfunction in relationships, which can be signalled by the following:
9 signs of dysfunction in relationships:
If you identified with any of the 9 signs above, then I am confident I can help you.
Over the years, working with relationships in conflict, I’ve learnt that to get to the deeper conversations about what is fuelling relationship problems, we first need to rebuild a safe, supportive container for healthy communication. That’s what The 9 R’s are about.
They are easily recognised and memorable actions that you can take to improve your relationships and they form a core component of my relationship conflict coaching process.
At A Single Step, I use a number of highly successful evidence-based frameworks to provide this simple but powerful model, so you can get straight to doing what works.
It's About Taking The Next Step
You know your relationship is suffering, but it’s not from want of trying on your part. You’ve probably tried strategies such as:
When nothing has worked, it’s easy to conclude that your relationship problems are here to stay, and you may as well stop trying. But there may be another way.
Introducing Relationship Conflict Coaching
Relationship Conflict Coaching helps you identify the negative conflict patterns in your relationship and take concrete steps towards transforming them. It helps you to build the skills of emotional regulation that will serve you in all of your relationships.
It takes an experienced third party to create the safe container needed for you to find the emotional courage to be vulnerable. With my support you can begin to restructure relationship conflict, towards more harmonious relationships.

Your Next Step
You’ve been through so much in your relationship.

But maybe you also have doubt about whether I can help you get through this problem.
There is one sure way to find out.
I invite you to get in touch with me today to organise your ‘first step conversation‘.
It’s free, there’s no obligation, and it’s as simple as choosing your day and time on the calendar to have a direct, one-on-one conversation with me.
Your Future, Your Story
Imagine yourself 12 months from today. Nothing has changed and your relationship problems are exactly what they were 12 months ago.
Are you truly happy with this?
I imagine not.
Now, take a journey in your mind to a place where communication is open and honest in your relationship. Where fun and laughter are the norm and not the exception.
Where you are once again comfortable and at home in each other’s company and you are able to share your thoughts and feelings, knowing they will be listened to and truly heard.
This needn’t be just a fantasy. That place is attainable. And it’s something that you have the power to create.
But you must take the first step.
Are you ready to make this happen?
