3 Myths About Relationship Coaching
If you’ve never had a coach except in school sports, then counseling is probably your point of reference for what you think of when you picture any conversation with a professional for help. That’s all any of us had for a long time. Whether it was through your place of worship or a professional counselor who had a particular education, marriage counseling was all there was for decades.
Today I’m sharing 3 myths that women are surprised to find are just not true when they get relationship coaching.

I felt so lonely.... until today, I woke to rose petals ...
I woke up this morning to rose petals on my kitchen bench, saying I 💗 U....I cried tears joy...
This is my 3rd relationship, turning 50 soon I thought I hit rock bottom in my marriage, when I walked into our room and said to hubby “your negativity is so difficult to live with, I’m not sure how long I can cope” meaning I will leave if you don’t change...
Truth is I am healing from a Brain Trauma, blow to head client at work and was still trying to heal, I went deep as possible with self growth to be positive, as I struggle daily to communicate , remember things or live life like I use too, so I felt it was all his fault when he seemed negative.
He was distant , always on his phone and I was lonely. No cuddles we could fit a jumbo jet int our bed between us, he gave compliments to the dog ( cute fluffy puppy) and never me...I felt so hurt , I would even ask him to tell me I’m cute... lol that never worked..... until
I started searching how to be feminine as I felt I was out of balance .... this is when I found the skills...
while I’m still healing I can only take in so much and some days not at all, so listening to podcasts and audio book is all I can do and I’m seeing miracles in my marriage now. So grateful 🙏🌈💗
Made a huge difference to my relationship
I have been reading Laura Doyle for over 10 years and it really helped me start my marriage off right. I have grown a lot with time and the books and the podcast is an amazing resource for continued growth beyond the books. I’m sure you could grow rapidly in your relationship with the coaching but for those like me where coaching is not an option financially, this fills the gap between the books and coaching. I would love to hear a segment on the podcast where Laura answers some commonly asked reader questions and goes through scenarios that readers have described in their marriages. Thanks Laura for your invaluable contribution to marriages everywhere.
Narcissism and abuse are not up to the wife to fix!
It is very dangerous to suggest to women that they can change the narcissistic and abusive behaviour of their partners!! It is not a woman’s responsibility to ward off physical, psychological, emotional, sexual, financial, etc abuse - that is the other persons’s responsibility to fix (which they often don’t).
For women out there, please contact your local domestic violence service should you be on the receiving end of any kind of abuse from your partner. You deserve better than that! Every human deserves better treatment than that! Abuse is never ok and it is NOT your responsibility to fix another person’s illogical behaviour. Stay safe.
