Making love a reality (to beat loneliness) programme

Have you been experiencing any of these feelings?

  • A hole or knot in your stomach, through isolation.
  • Feeling the sting of ‘still’ being single, especially in lockdown.
  • Thinking that you’re destined to be alone forever.
  • Shame for feeling ‘needy,‘ or for obsessing over people.
  • Feeling drained from supporting everyone else.
This 7 week programme is a very effective way of taking you from hopelessness and despair to
  •  Understanding blocks you may have to being loved.
  •  Stopping toxic relationship patterns, attractions and obsessions.
  • Creating more supportive friendships and relationships.
  • Feeling more your empowered self.
Even in lockdown!

My first session

 1:1 sessions,  in small, powerful, supportive groups, to really talk about these subjects with people who get it.

Everyone starts with an introductory session for an hour.

During an initial individual session you can expect to receive support and be encourged to explore. You will likely gain some enlightenment and understanding of your patterns, and how to start to tackle your concerns. This is likely to start to point you in the right direction.

If you choose to work individually with me, our sessions will be more tailored to your individual needs. Where in a group you will receive the incredible support of people who understand you. Some people like to work with more structure, some people need more time to talk and explore. Both are possible here.
