You're attractive and successful with a wonderful personality and plenty of friends. Yet you keep hitting a brick wall when it comes to love. You just can't seem to meet the right person. You're either drawn to unavailable types or people who won't commit or you can't bring yourself to fancy the nice ones. You've run out of ideas about where to meet potential dates, become disillusioned with online dating and grown tired of meetup groups. You don't need someone to complete you but you're tired of doing everything on your own. You want someone to go on adventures with, to travel with and to build a home with.
I've been there. By my early 40s, I had an impressive CV, a great career, a beautiful flat in North London and all the freedom and independence I'd ever longed for. I'd enjoyed my single days, my flirtations and flings, as well as a few relationships, but I'd also had periods of sadness and loneliness. Is this it? What have I been striving for? I knew I wanted love and companionship in my life. I knew I wanted to be in a committed relationship with someone - a real partnership. I was also running out of time to have the family I'd always imagined I'd have. But I kept choosing the wrong guys and rejecting the good ones. I had no luck online and I didn't know how to meet potential partners.
I'm now 46, engaged to be married and living with my fiancé by the sea in Dorset. How did I get here? I went on an inner journey of personal transformation. I looked inside myself, identified where I was going wrong, understood the roots of my unhelpful behaviours and unhealthy patterns, committed to change, found the courage to do things differently and stepped forwards into a new life. Along the way, I had lots of support. I couldn't have done it alone. That's why I now support women and men as they go on their own journey to love.
From December 2017, I have a limited number of spaces for 1-2-1 coaching clients. I offer a range of packages, from 3 to 6 sessions, to 3, 6 and 12 months of support. Please email me for more information and fees or book an exploratory call by clicking on the link below. I also host beach brainstorming days at my home in Dorset. Click here for more information.
I tailor all my packages to suit a client's individual needs. Depending on where you are on your journey, we might explore your relationship with yourself, self-love, self-care and your connection to your heart and intuition. We can identify and challenge any unhelpful relationship patterns that may be blocking you from love. We can explore setting healthy and loving boundaries, with yourself and others. We can endeavour to let go of any lost loves or old relationships that are standing in the way of new love. And we'll explore your dreams and visions for your life, making sure you are taking action on the things your heart desires, alongside exploring dating and relationships.
My signature packages include an optional VIP beach day - you spend a day at my home in Poole, Dorset, designing your ideal life and relationship and identifying the steps you need to take in order to create your best future. We walk on the beach or along cliffs, paddle board, or swim in the sea, depending on what you think would give you the most benefit. The focus is entirely on you throughout the day. Overnight stays in a beautiful guest house can be arranged for those who want to take in the spectacular views for a little longer. I believe you will find peace, calm, beauty, creativity and clarity.
The goal of all my coaching is to help you feel good about yourself, create or consolidate a life that you love, get out and meet eligible partners while keeping healthy boundaries and navigate those tricky early stages of a relationship.
"I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Katherine to help and guide you through the emotional rollercoaster of dating and relationships. Katherine has helped me to see the blocks I have had to intimacy and relationships and helped me to understand when it is my intuition or my fear that's telling me to run a mile. She has also helped me understand my relationship triggers and work out if my reactions are rooted in the past or are about the here and now, encouraging me to take the time to process big feelings and act from a place of authenticity. Katherine's approach is a delightful mix of wisdom, gentleness, honesty, authenticity and humour. If you want to find real authentic love, Katherine is the one to help you on that journey of discovery," Catherine, 45, artist, now in a committed relationship with a man she calls her best friend.
