Intercultural Couple Coaching

Towards connection, understanding and openness

Maintaining an intercultural relationship can be challenging. Why?

Maintaining a happy relationship with your partner can already be difficult, but intercultural relationships come with an additional set of challenges.

Culture touches many aspects of a couple´s life: To what degree should the extended family be involved in the relationship? How much public display of affection is appropriate? What is your role as man or woman in the relationship? When is the right time to marry? Should you say things straight to the point or rather indirectly? The list could go on.

Cross-cultural relationships can be exciting. You discover new music, different family dynamics and communication styles. However, it easy for partners to feel distant when perceptions are so different, e.g. where one partner sees a formal shirt often worn by politicians, the other sees a shirt whose pattern reminds them of a low-grade factory worker. Arguments can arise easily when you struggle to understand why your partner acts or thinks a certain way.

Cross-cultural couple coaching: how to build a healthy relationship with my partner?

Imagine how you would feel if you truly understood your partner and their views and behaviours.

I support you in increasing your intercultural sensitivity: become more aware of your culture and values and those of your partner. Learn how these values and assumptions influence the way you both perceive the world.

 

Through various creative exercises you learn to communicate openly how you feel and what you need and identify suitable coping strategies.

In a calm and empathetic way, I support you to co-create your own relationship values and family culture. The coaching process is completely personalised and tailored to your specific goals and issues.
