At Feroce, the coaches we’ve tapped are well-prepared for the very different rigors of coaching couples. Couples coaches should, ideally, possess the credentials and experience of qualified couples counselors. The couples dynamic is rarely suitable for the average coach, who lacks such expertise. I present to you below my hand-picked couples coach, Coach Susan Epstein, LCSW.
Are you concerned about problems in your relationship?
Looking to improve your communication as a couple?
Couples who split up show clear warning indicators:
- Distance, lack of affection
- Increased arguing, criticism, defensiveness, stonewalling, sarcasm, and, the most troublesome of all, contempt
- Mistrust and secrecy
If you’re experiencing any of these, it’s important that you take prompt action to improve your relationship, because once these behaviors have taken hold, they’re likely to worsen unless you use specific strategies to turn things around.
Most couples who fall into these patterns do so because of a lack of awareness of the patterns they’re in, as well as deficiencies in learnable skills such as communicating, dealing with conflict, or expressing intimacy.
With the right knowledge, awareness and support, couples can improve communication so they’re able to successfully resolve conflicts. When they build an atmosphere of trust, it becomes easy and natural again to feel increased intimacy.
Couples who are deciding about their relationship in a crisis following affairs or episodes of bitter conflict can also benefit from coaching. Your goal may be repairing a relationship, parting with as much stability as possible, or just reaching agreement on how to proceed.
The How of Couples Coaching
Learn how to listen, resolve conflicts and cooperate, and then –
- Create a shared vision of where you want to take your relationship
- Map out couple goals and a couple plan for making your vision a reality
- And finally implement your plan and live your dreams.
The Why of Couples Coaching
Because we can so easily lose track of one another while we are so busy . . . striving for:
A clean house.
Home cooked meals every night.
Being the best Mom or Dad to the kids.
Time to relax.
Eating right, watching our weight.
…. And a close intimate, satisfying relationship with our partner!

The When of Couples Coaching
I can help you when . . .
- You and your partner don’t spend time together
- Arguing with your spouse or partner with no resolution
- You feel that you are letting your him/her down
- You want to add more intimacy and romance in your life
- You and your partner have a dream –(such as, going to Italy and you don’t know how to make that happen)
- You have an issue that is causing stress in your relationship (like job, infertility or your relationship with in-laws etc.)
- You are going through a life transition (A new baby, kids growing up and leaving home, retirement)
The Where of Couples Coaching
At your home, work or anywhere in the world.
On your sofa, in your kitchen, in the backyard.
On the phone – I’ll conference call you in.
On your computer.
In person- if geographically possible!
“But,” you might say, “we both work full time and the kids demand all of our attention!” I’ll help you find time to catch up on each other’s day, share information about your thoughts and ideas and ask for and get support. Couples Coaching will put you both at the top of the list…and when you nurture and support each other, everything else seems a lot more manageable.
So, if you want a close intimate, satisfying relationship with your partner, request a free session with me.
But just a little caveat: some days the laundry just won’t get folded and there might be some dishes in the sink when you wake up in the morning. But it will certainly be worth it!
