Not being snarky, genuinely curious what gives you credibility to be a coach in this space?

What are the challenges in your current relationship and how are you resolving them?


mnocket t1_j7gs5it wrote

That was also my immediate response. Anyone can call themselves a Relationship Coach... just like a Life Coach.


TrialAndAaron t1_j7gs5pg wrote

Interested in this

Also do you call yourself a coach so you have no ethical obligation to any licensing board like various types of therapists would?


MJTony t1_j7gsh8l wrote

Agree. Credentials? Education?

Post was already removed, but I do hope we get an answer to this eventually. OP posted a link to a tik toc account clamining to be Dr. M. Hemphill, but there dont seem to be any doctors by that name that practice therapy.

Anyone who claims to be a "Coach", outside sports, immediately raises red flags for me.
Anyone can call themselves a "life coach" or "relationship coach" with absolutely zero credentials or education, and the credentials out there are largely unregulated, or self-regulated (more red flags).

As a Relationship Coach, how often do you see couples and tell them they are toxic as fuck for each other and need to separate asap?


artemonster t1_j7grry2 wrote

As long as you can milk them for money, whats the problem, amiright?


GDJT t1_j7grj5g wrote

Bonus question: how often do you see a couple and go "'s like 95% that one's fault"?

How do you initiate sex after you’ve become best friends (too comfortable) with your partner?


NateDiedAgain09 t1_j7gs52r wrote

Dating is easily one of the most personal and subjective activities we can participate in, how do you as a dating coach measure your impact through your work and objectively determine if your advice makes positive/negative impacts on those who seek you out?

I think it's probably very common that people experience apprehension regarding 'what if someone out there is better for me?'...

Is this common'? Do you have any advice for dealing with it, or sorting out whether it's a genuine feeling based in the relationship or just a habitual/conditioned fear?

He's using it as an excuse. I have really bad adhd and boundaries aren't hard to keep track of, laundry is.

What’s the difference between couples therapy and couples coaching?


suddentlyduckies t1_j7gt6ev wrote

Not to be a stinker but a link to a TikTok as proof that OP is a qualified professional is extremely shady. Kind of a shame for people hoping to get real insight into such a complex side of life.

Hello /u/relationsbysprout,

There is not enough proof included in the post that connects your identity to the IAmA.

Unfortunately, the links or photos you've posted could have been posted by anyone, and they don't prove that you are the person doing the AMA. Your proof needs to be something that connects the fact that you're doing an AMA with your identity. This could be something like a photo of you in a work uniform or at a relevant location with a sign that has your username and the date. It could also be documents (partially redacted if desired) with a note that has your username and the date. We're happy for you to get creative with your proof as long as it makes it clear to a reasonable person that the person doing the AMA does meet the criteria laid out in the topic of the AMA.

If you can't think of a way to prove your claims publicly, you can also submit confidential proof to the moderators at this link, though bear in mind it may take some time to review.

Here's a link to the section of our wiki that discusses proof.

Please edit your post and add new proof, and reply here to let us know. If your post is more than a couple of hours old, it may be more effective to create a new post and include the proof from the start. Thanks!

If you'd like to appeal, please click here to send a message to the moderator team.

In marriage, what is the best way in handling finances, assuming both are working but one earns way more than the other.

In this scenario, can I add a step child and a recently born child? How to juggle the dynamic of a teenager and a newborn and what is the best way to keep them close even though they are over a decade apart.

What do you think of the internet's impact on dating? Do you think it contributes to a sort of paradox of choice? Where people obsess over tiny details and it becomes harder to pick someone because of the sea of choices?


artemonster t1_j7grnie wrote

Is this a frustrating job? Most conflicts and problems stem from the fact that one (or both) partners are either inentional morons or literal toddlers in their behaviour. Trying fixing that, I imagine, is a nightmare
