Couples Coach

Average: 3.8 (27 votes)


The Couples Coach app is designed for partners who want to improve their relationship and explore new ways to connect. Couples choose missions—small commitments to improve your relationship—to work through on their own or with their partner. There are five levels of couples training with dozens of missions to choose from. Missions help couples increase positive communication and work through conflict. The app also includes comprehensive relationship information for couples living with PTSD.

Although Couples Coach can help improve communication and satisfaction in your relationship, it isn’t a replacement for face-to-face couples counseling. The app features a couples counseling locator for finding a professional counselor, as well as several local and national resources.

Couples Coach was made by the Mobile Mental Health Team at the National Center for PTSD’s Dissemination and Training Division.

My husband and I are really enjoying the app and it is clearly helping us as a tool in addition to couples therapy and individual mental health support.”
