Skip Swies has been counseling couples, families and individuals for 37 years. During this time, Skip has assisted his clients in identifying and overcoming obstacles on the path toward achieving their goals of closeness and understanding. Currently is working with Life Coach Austin.
His training began at Otterbein University where he held a double major in psychology and education. In 1983 Skip began teaching personal growth intensives and coaching individuals and couples for Global Relationship Centers( GRC). In 1994 he moved his family from Boulder, CO, to Austin where he joined the staff of GRC to train the future instructors while continuing to lead seminars across the country.
Beginning in the late 80s, Skip got involved with Men’s Work and joined his first Men’s group. Shortly after he developed his own seminar weekend entitled Finding the Father. In this experience the men examined the ” father wound” starting with the relationship they had with their fathers. This course and a sister course for women ran for about 10 years.
For the past 7 years, Skip has committed his expertise to “Healing Warrior Hearts”. A weekend to assist service members and their spouses in dealing with the challenges that life after service can present. The goal is to bring our service members more fully home!
Skip and his wife of 46 years have taught together for 37 years and still coach together. Their 3 children and 3 grandchildren all live in Texas.
“Seeing the other clearly and allowing the other to see you, is essential in creating empowering relationships”. – Skip
