You're attractive and successful with a great personality and plenty of friends, but 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 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. But I kept choosing the wrong guys and I rejected the good ones. I had no luck online (I was in my early 40s without children - men my age were looking for younger models) and I didn't know how to meet potential partners.
I'm now 47, engaged to be married and living with my partner 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 behaviours, committed to change, mustered the courage to do things differently and stepped forwards into a new life. Along the way, I worked through my feelings around motherhood - my ambivalence towards having children - and I learned to accept 'what is' rather than chase 'what if'.
If you are ready to understand the real reasons for your singleness, take courageous steps and embrace a new way of dating and relating, I'd love to work with you. I offer 1-2-1 coaching, women's retreats and an online video course. Go to www.howtofallinlove.co.uk 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. We can also work through your feelings towards motherhood - any ambivalence, panic or sense of loss. 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.
The goal 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.
If you'd like to explore working with me, let's have a no obligation chat on the phone. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment.

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.
