Is friendship coaching a real thing?
You may have noticed that you can get a coach for anything these days. While it's common to seek support for relationships with a spouse, family member, child, or employee, there's less attention around the need for support in our friendships. But research shows that our female friendships are one of the most important relationships in our lives. If this is the case, it's worth intentionally investing in these relationships.
Danielle is an educator and certified coach, and she spends hours each week studying some of the most prolific researchers in the areas of evolutionary psychology, female conflict and cooperation, sociolinguistics, and interpersonal communication.
This means you are investing in services with someone who is skilled, experienced, and up-to-date on the latest research in this field.
What can coaching help me with?
Friendship coaching can help you gain clarity in any of the following areas:
making friends (as an introvert/ college student/ new mother/ adult)
navigating difficult conversations with a friend
moving on from a friendship break-up
maintaining friendships when you're in different "seasons"
seeing friends differently due to new / dissimilar values
determining if it's time to leave a toxic friendship
managing cynicism surrounding befriending other women
prioritizing friendships as a businesswoman/ entrepreneur
releasing shame or guilt from hurting a friend
managing friendships after major life transitions like motherhood, marriage, or cross-country moves
Is coaching like therapy?
The simplest way to explain the difference between coaching and therapy is this: therapy helps you make connections between what happened in your past and where you are in the present ; coaching focuses on where you are now and where you'd like to be in the future.
About fifty percent of our clients have a therapist! Many of them come to us because when they talk to their therapist about tangible ways to improve their friendships, they find that they don't receive feedback that's actionable enough. That's where we come in.
In our coaching sessions, the emphasis is on tangible goals (we love giving homework!) through meaningful discussion and guiding questions processes to help move you forward.
NOTE: For those with more specialized mental health needs (chronic anxiety, depression, autism) we have a list of trusted psychologists and therapists that we can refer you to, as we are not qualified to assist in these areas.
