SARASOTA, Fla., Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A GOAL-ORIENTED APPROACH TO IMPROVING RELATIONSHIPS.
Poppy and Geoff Spencer were college sweethearts who, initially, thought they were destined to spend their lives together—but immaturity and a lack of communication skills got in the way. It took several marriages and life experiences between them to come together 32 years later and build a solid, healthy relationship.
Today, the Spencers work as relational coaches and parenting coaches, to provide practical, goal-oriented guidance to couples (and families) at various levels in their relationship, including those on the brink of divorce and have even written a new book, 1 Billion Seconds: A Fictional Memoir, about their 32-year journey to find each other again.
"In our book and in our coaching practice, we offer our readers and clients a step-by-step process to identify and address the emotions that influence thoughts and behavior."
The Spencers, who are licensed, specialty-certified New Life Story® Wellness Coaches, guide result-oriented clients to set achievable goals. With Myers-Briggs-certified facilitation, a deep knowledge of and expertise with psychology and neuroscience, they coach people who feel stuck and help them to write new life stories.
They also work with healthy couples, individuals, and families to develop strategies for their relational goals that are achievable and measurable. With a background in therapy, they also help people understand their personality styles and how those styles work together.
"Unlike therapy, relational coaching is action and goal-oriented and designed to help people get the results they desire," explains the Spencers. "As Relational Coaches, we help people find the courage to identify concerns and to develop, enhance, and repair the communication skills in order to flourish in their interpersonal relationships."
