Special marriage coaching sessions for couples [ONLINE]
I am Fawzi, marriage coach and I offer marriage coaching sessions to couples who want to understand why they are not doing very well and want to give themselves a new chance to continue together in a joyful life. The objective of the marriage coach is to accompany couples in pain towards a better relationship, so that each of them understands the needs of the other, that each knows how to satisfy his "Love". As a coach, I can help you in several kinds of conflicts: communication problems, boredom, jealousy, routine, infidelity, problems in sexual relations, children, work, etc. And so that the interviews take place calmly, I use practical sheets that allow me to follow your cases and progress professionally. It must be emphasized that every conflict situation in life has solutions, except that sometimes we fail to be aware and wise to easily solve our problems and overcome them because of our sadness, boredom, nervousness or other states. unwanted. This is why it is better to find a "third party", especially a professional, who remains objective and who has the possibility of hearing us both, of understanding each other and of accompanying us to get out of our suffering and misunderstanding we do not need. -------------------------------------------------- ------- As for my education: The training I followed to become a marriage coach is certifying, accredited by two international accreditation bodies: the Datadock (quality standard number: 0025523) and the IPHM (The International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine, or, in French, International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine). This means that it is assessed and registered internationally. Here are some of the main focuses of this training: - The couple and its mysteries; - The couple and the vagaries of life; - Sexuality (How does it work? / Couple and addictions / Abuses and dangers). If you need my help, I am at your disposal.

Conflict management & negotiation: communication support for effective and sustainable control
It is a question of putting in place rational and professional tools to defuse conflicts and enter your comfort / security zone. In particular simple and logical techniques, which make it possible to resolve and manage violent situations in a harmonious, efficient and lasting way. The objectives are: 0. Understand and identify the issues / risks then find a balance between empathy and conviction 1. Use interpersonal communication techniques resulting from mediation to defuse tensions and gain distance 2. Dissociate the relational and the nature of the disagreement - Overcome cognitive and psychological obstacles 3. Acquire the techniques of self-defense and mastery without hurting and being injured 4. Face and then defuse difficult behaviors (blackmail attempts, threats, destabilization) or even dangerous with a mediation strategy 5. Develop conflict management and negotiation skills by alternating attentive listening, active speaking and rationality in the face of the limited rationality of the angry individual. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *. (* study 2020) Postgraduate School Training & Ivy league college in the United States, our teacher has specialized and worked for over 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking in renowned public and private international institutions, involved in forums and conferences, and focused on two areas: training and coaching, with the key words pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Find confidence in yourself, become or become again the person you want and always wanted to be
This course allows you to regain confidence in yourself, the society in which we currently live requires great mental and psychic strength in order not to fall into depression. Many people feel weak, worthless, or even unable to do things because they are made to believe this. Find your self-confidence, re-motivate yourself thanks to my private lessons, I will take the time to discuss with you and give you advice to regain full self-confidence and not let this company get you down. I myself have long been in periods of questioning about my ability to act, but thanks to the "redpill" I regained full confidence in myself, and I am now fully assuming myself.
