In 2009, when Good Works of Love Ministry was formed, couples were looking for time out of their busy schedules to come and sit face to face with me. I changed my office hours to accommodate their two job/career work load. Many times these couples came into my office tired and scattered from getting everyone taken care of. They would have to find a baby sitter and that usually cost the couple extra. These couples wanted help and needed an economical and smart way to save their marriage. And let's face it, many people do not plan for marriage help in their budgets. So I went to finding a solution that was a win win for my couples and myself.
In the interest of economy, I began suggesting to couples that they consider telephone coaching instead. The intake interview and the diagnostic assessment were done by telephone, and questionnaires were delivered by email or Google drive. After a few couples tried it, we were all quite surprised to discover that telephone coaching from start to finish worked just as well as face-to-face coaching. If you will notice many coaches and counselors are now offering telephone coaching.
Let's look at the advantages in depth
The primary advantage is that you can get marriage coaching with me even if you are not living in my area. Some communities have no trained marriage counselors/coaches, and telephone counseling is the only way to get help. But even in large metropolitan areas, it is sometimes difficult to find someone trained in a particular method that you trust.
The convenience and privacy of the telephone are also tremendous advantages. Getting to and from a counseling office can sometimes take hours, and you never know who you'll meet in the waiting room! Telephone coaching, on the other hand, is something that does not even require a baby-sitter. Most of my clients are able to entertain their children with a video while they are talking to me. Some of my clients are able to use their lunch time while talking with me. With the ability to call long distance without phone charges, telephone coaching has become even more cost effective.
The idea that a counselor/coach's physical presence is essential to coaching success is simply not true. In fact, I've discovered that I can help people by telephone that I could never have reached in person. They were either too embarrassed to come to an office, or not motivated enough to make the trip. But by telephone they get all the help they need with complete privacy and very little initial effort. And the results are dramatic.
Of course, rebuilding a marriage does takes effort. There are questionnaires to complete to discover the weaknesses in marriage. And couples must discipline themselves to learn habits that meet each other's emotional needs and overcome habits that hurt each other. Couples have to stick to the program until it's completed. But the coaching itself requires very little effort when done by telephone.
