There are several situations in which a couple should start with couples therapy instead of coaching. A couple managing an infidelity should begin with couples therapy, and often individual therapy for each, to work through the grief and negative feelings associated with that situation.

Relationships that include emotional, physical intimacy or physical abuse require a therapist, counselor, or psychologist to manage the aggression and power dynamics between the individuals. 

Lastly, couples dealing with trauma (loss of a family member, for example) can benefit from a therapeutic approach to address the thoughts and feelings regarding that event before considering couples coaching.

Finding a couples coach who has a background in couples work from a mental health perspective can be valuable because they will recognize if you should begin with therapy or coaching and avoid exacerbating any presenting issues.
