After my kids left home things started to change for me. I’d been the main caregiver and now I wanted to spread my wings and fly. But the structure of our relationship couldn’t accommodate that. That’s when “my cage started rattling” as I called it. I was coming apart at the seams. My health was waning, my happiness was gone. Something had to change. I changed it. I became a hero in my own life.
It was at that time that I answered the call to train as a life coach, then a relationship coach, on to a Collaborative Divorce coach and mediator. I later trained as a Relationship Systems Coach, which changed my life and the lives of my clients.
A dozen years as a divorce coach and working with many hundreds of ending relationships has taught me all the ways a relationship can go sideways. Now I guide couples away from those booby traps and dead ends. I now possess a powerful combination of tools for retrieving even the most damaged relationship from the edge. If they want that.
Today I am grateful for being on the cutting edge of healing our world one relationship at a time.
Relationships are more important than ever in our disconnected society. Let’s talk about yours. How close to the edge is it? What will bring it back? Are you both on board? What if only one of you wants it? All good questions that deserve honest answers. Contact me. I look forward to speaking with you.
Thank you for a powerful session last week. We are both grateful and to be honest, I don’t think either of us thought we’d be able to break through the pain. So thank you. We both know it will make a huge impact on our son now and in the future.
I wanted to thank you both for today. I felt like that was a really powerful session. Jeannine found and went right to the core issue of respect and I feel better in touch with my respect for __________ and his respect for me. I’m feeling like a very lucky person.
“Jeannine started coaching us at a very critical time in our marriage. We had been spiraling down a negative path for a long time and needed someone else to look at what we were doing and give us tools to change.
Jeannine is a real positive coach, having us look at our differences as a good thing, building a whole new marriage on what we have instead of [make believe] dreams, giving us exercises to put in practice and experience. what we learned. We especially appreciate Jeannine’s insight and God given discernment of her coaching. We look forward to our weekly meeting with her.”
I feel like things are moving in the right direction. I do believe if we deal with this properly our relationship will be so much better, stronger and deeper. I also feel as though our relationship has gone through a sort of rebirth. Or maybe it is me finally getting back in touch with the real me?? Whatever it is, it is a much better place than before and far more honest. It certainly feels difficult but necessary to go over my feelings and hurt with him and he is willing to listen to me and I think has begun to understand the depth of hurt involved.
I am so pleased that we are doing this with you. I think that marriage counseling can simply open up old wounds but with the work we are doing with you I feel that XXX and I are moving into a different space and are able to see each other more clearly and are learning how to really listen and be present.
I did not realize how fear was such a factor for both of us. With that in mind we are moving forward and going to try and communicate from a place of love rather than fear. I hope we can translate this into a positive energy for our family and ourselves.
As usual you worked your magic and helped us to get back on course. You are so wonderful and I/we so appreciate your focus and “presence” when you are working with us. Your insights, observations and thoughts have been invaluable. Thank you. I honestly feel so blessed to have you in my/our life.”
Through this coaching we were able to work through the challenges of moving back in together, redesign our relationships with our kids, clean out old wounds from when we had significantly hurt each other early in our relationship, and learn how to be for each other. Rebuilding the trust between us has been slow but steady. We’re down to seeing Jeannine just once every couple of months now. We so appreciate those times to check in.
You are the prime mover in your relationship. Neither marital therapy nor relationship coaching will fix your relationship. You do that. My job is to reflect the state of your relationship back to you where you can see it full on, in all its beauty and blemishes. Then we work together in a conscious way to make effective changes that heal and soothe, and bring contentedness back to your relating.
