Struggling to support your partner in tough times, here’s how...




Have you ever had a partner in a rough place, or maybe you’ve felt like you’re butting heads… 


Here are 3 quick tips I love sharing with my clients…




1| Validation


Instead of trying to fix & give solutions, validate then ask -

'This must be tough for you, what do you need from me/how can I help you right now?'


2| Ask them what THEY want…


Do you want me to listen or give you a solution? (We are often too quick to try and fix/solve, when the person often knows what to do, they just need an ear.


3| Ask permission


Ask permission to chat about certain topics: ‘Hey I want to chat about X, when’s a good time’


This is a really important point when someone has had a big day & the other partner just starts downloading on them, when maybe their capacity to focus/function is low.
