Mobile Apps: Couples Coach

The Couples Coach app was created for partners who want to improve their relationship and explore new ways to connect. It also includes relationship information specific to couples living with PTSD.

With Couples Coach you can:

  • Send notes and questions to your partner
  • Work through relationship-building missions
  • Use tools to help you address relationship challenges
  • Track progress toward becoming a stronger, healthier couple

How to Use Couples Coach

Couples Coach works best when partners use the app together, although you can use it alone. You choose missions—small commitments to improve your relationship—to work through yourself or with your partner. There are five levels of couples training with dozens of missions to choose from. Available skills to practice include:

  • Observing feelings and behaviors
  • Increasing positive interactions
  • Increasing positive communication
  • Working through conflict
  • Connecting to your community

There are quizzes you can take, and you can share results with your partner if you'd like. You can also set reminders to check in regularly and mark favorite challenges and tools to return to quickly.

NOTE: Couples Coach is not intended to replace needed professional care related to marriage and family counseling, or mental health conditions, such as PTSD. The app features a locator for finding professional help.
