"The biggest room in the world is the room for improvement."
"Real intimacy is only possible to the degree that we can be honest about what we are doing and feeling. "
Throughout our lives we receive messages about who we should be, how we should feel, and the acceptable ways to express ourselves. These messages are often enforced with negativity. It’s no wonder we end up having unsatisfying, draining, and empty intimate experiences.
The WIHL's Intimacy Coaching program gives clients the tools to deepen intimacy in their relationships. Some skills we teach are:
How to express oneself in a relationship
How to hold space for another person
How to recognize emotional patterns and their ability to manipulate
How to explore relationships with trust and boundaries
How to turn relationship challenges into opportunities to deepen intimacy
"You have to honor and really fully invest in all these different loving relationships"
Relationship coaching helps people find greater fulfillment in their personal relationships.
Coaching helps clients let go of their own painful thoughts, and create their own relationship vision.
The WIHL also works with people who are not yet in a relationship; and who have difficulty knowing what they want in a relationship.
Relationship coaching is not "couples therapy," just as life coaching is not psychotherapy. If you're having relationship troubles, a coach might help you clear up your thinking, get some perspective or set inspiring new goals. However, in the case of problems with debilitating mental illness, couples therapy would be recommended.
If there are many unhealed childhood wounds a therapist who specializes in working with past trauma will be referred.
Relationship coaching rarely requires you to re-tell your childhood story, but it can help you find peace with where you are now.
Relationship coaching might help clarify issues, but it doesn't claim to "save" marriages. It brings the bright light of awareness into the hidden corners of resentment, fear and avoidance.

~What clients have said: Excerpts from testimonials~
"My experience with Rachael truly changed my life. I felt completely safe with Rachael. She was extremely giving and really cared about me and my issues. Rachael has my highest possible endorsement. She genuinely wants to help her clients."
"My wife and I spent thousands of dollars on five different marriage counselors, and even saw a licensed sex therapist. None of that really helped. A service like Rachael now provides might have saved our marriage, and saved us both a lot of emotional pain ."
"I was so damaged, that I was unable to get any sort of pleasure myself from having sex. I was not confident in my ability to approach a woman, even just to talk. I didn’t know that I craved intimate contact more than anything, just snuggling, just holding someone was even more important than having sex..."
