You might find this surprising, but a third of my dating and relationship coaching clients are men. People don’t expect me to have so many men in my practice because women are the ones who most often seek out the help of a coach or therapist. I have to admit, I would never have expected to be coaching so many members of the opposite sex, but I feel honored to work with each and every one of them.
Men come to me to coach them on every aspect of relationship. They come for dating advice. They come with their significant partners to work on a current relationship. And, they come on their own to become better partners to their current wives and partners. I treasure my male clients and I have developed a deep respect for who they are and for the unique challenges they face in their lives and relationships. My male coaching clients seem to be deeply committed to understanding the women in their lives and to becoming the best partners they can possibly be. Many of my male clients have told me that they feel that I understand who they are and what they’re up against. Because I coach so many men, I have a unique ability to help my male clients to better understand women and my female clients to better understand men.

This week I received a touching letter from one of my former male clients. With his permission, I would like to share it with you.
How are you? Been a while! Just wanted to shoot over an email and say hello. I was thinking about you the other day and thought I’d drop you a quick note. Things are really going well with me, and I am happy to report I’ve been dating a WOMAN (not girl!) for a few months now and she’s incredible. I think about the time spent with you in many of our sessions even a year later. Going over so many of the details and pieces of my life that I needed to work on. I am still doing those things today. In fact, today (my girlfriend) Jeanette emailed me that a few of her girlfriends (who are having “men problems”) were asking her “Why Dan is such a special guy?” Jeanette told them it was because I make her feel desired, special, sexy, feminine, loved, understood, cared for, and much, much more. How awesome is that? Talk about a 180 from where I was two years ago! When she sent this to me and told me her response to her girlfriends, I grinned and thought to myself “Lisa Shield would want to hear this one.”
I remember walking in to your office as a complete ball of confusion. I remember not caring about how I presented myself. I remember feeling beat up emotionally/mentally after a roller-coaster of a relationship, and wondering what I did wrong. I’ve definitely turned that corner. I still continue to work on ME, but if not for you helping me, I don’t know where I’d be. So thank you BIG TIME.
I hope you know that what you did and have done for me, helped me with, and what you expressed to me was EXACTLY what I needed. I am so thankful for your help and words to build me up, and I can only imagine you are getting this type of continual positive response from plenty of your clients.
Hope all is well. Please tell your husband I say hello. It goes without saying, but he’s a lucky guy to have you in his life!
