Relationship Inventory

Do you want more from your relationship? Are you unsure how to improve your current situation? Has something changed and you want to get back to where you once were?

Please take a few minutes to answer the following questionnaire on our relationship/intimacy inventory for a quick assessment of the challenges and strengths you have in your relationship. Understand that while all relationships face occasional difficulties, it’s possible to experience improved intimacy and fulfilling connections with your partner. Grab a piece of paper and a pen (or print this page) and mark down the answer that best fits your situation. Remember that this is not a test – there are no right or wrong answers. The point is to help you to see more clearly those areas in your life and relationship that are strong and satisfying, as well as those that you may wish to improve upon. Writing it down has a unique way of bringing clarity to the overwhelming situation you may sometimes find yourself in.

Go ahead – give it a try! If you like what you see when you’re done, great! Appreciate what you have and continue doing good work. If you see areas that you would like to improve and would like some help or coaching along the way, please give us a call to see if we can assist you in reaching the peace you are looking for.
