Helping thoughtful, independent types deepen their friendships and find purpose, connection and belonging
Coaching for Connection
Find purpose and fulfilment, create vibrant, wholehearted relationships with friends and family, and redefine what it means to truly belong.
Why connection coaching? When we go through major life changes - for example, moving home, a relationship ending, job loss or bereavement - our identity is impacted on multiple levels. Sometimes we lose a sense of who we really are, and it's easy to find ourselves drifting, looking to others for direction, and finding it difficult to know where and how to draw the boundaries that we need to build a healthy, purposeful, fulfilling and connected life. You may have to rebuild your relationships with friends and family as well, or at least redefine how you relate to the people who once made up your social circle. The pandemic has also impacted all of us in ways that we're only just starting to understand, making us questions aspects of our lives which once held greater certainty.
If you feel as though you lack clarity over how to move forward meaningfully in your life, if your relationships with friends and family have become limited, draining, or unfulfilling, if you crave greater emotional intimacy and acceptance from others, or if you just want to feel more aligned with who you once were - with more fun, adventure, community and confidence - then I can help!
I offer direct, insightful, compassionate clarity and connection coaching for thoughtful, independent types who want to find a clearer sense of direction, purpose and belonging. Most of my clients are women aged 30+ (but not all), and most define as single / solo (but not exclusively) - the crucial thing is the willingness to take responsibility for your life as it is now, to reflect honestly on how connected you feel as the moment - to yourself and to others - and to be open to new practices for building greater depth into your life and into your closest relationships. I don’t offer dating advice. If we decide to work together, I'll help you build the skills and confidence you need to find meaning, fulfillment and connection in your life as it is now, whether or not you have a partner! You can find out more about my coaching offer here, and I also regularly run free classes via my Complete Connection Confidence group on Facebook:
'I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive strength from the relationship.'
Hi, I'm Hannah. I'm a coach on a mission to give you the confidence to live a wholehearted life that is brimming with love, purpose and deep connection - even if you don't have a romantic relationship!
As a young adult, I followed a well worn path. I filled my time with hobbies, friends and interests, I worked hard to build my career, and I dated - a series of two to three year relationships which eventually fizzled out. I was young, ambitious and I made friends easily - and I assumed that things would eventually work out for me in the same way that they had for the people around me.
In my early thirties, I spent a couple of years living and travelling overseas. After coming back to the UK, I realised other people's lives were moving on around me - getting married, having children, moving away. I suddenly felt alone, and as though I was the only person in the world whose life wasn't moving in the 'right' direction.
For a while, I kept going as I had been - working hectic hours, filling my spare time with anything that could serve as a distraction, and continuing to date, even though it didn't really hold any appeal any more. But I wasn't happy - I felt inadequate and directionless, and deeply alone. As my friends' priorities shifted towards their partners and their children and away from me, I felt more and more adrift. I hadn't made new friends for years, and had forgotten how to. A bereavement, and a house move to a different part of the country only made things feel more difficult. I realised that I was holding out for a relationship because I just didn't know that it was possible to live happily or successfully in any other way.
I know now how incredible it feels to lead a solo life that is deeply purposeful and fulfilling, with a strong local network, and a powerful circle of friends and family who would fly to the other side of the world for me (and I for them). I know - even if I never have another romantic relationship - that I will never want for love and support. But it took courage to get to this point. I had to build deep self-knowledge, consciously unlearning old habits and replacing them with newer, healthier ones. I had to practice vulnerability, with the willingness to step outside my comfort zone and do things differently, to get to where I am today - and I'm still learning all the time.
My signature group coaching course '6 Weeks to Clarity and Connection’ is a culmination of everything I’ve ever done, studied and learnt about building a happy, successful and deeply fulfilling solo life. As a clarity and connection coach, and as someone who has been on this journey, I love nothing more than supporting conscientious, caring clients, like you, to do the same.
"I didn't really know what I was looking for when I met Hannah and started working with her. I felt like my life was 'under control' but ultimately something was missing. Despite dozens of friends, I often felt alone and like noone really understood me. I really didn't know what to expect, but can't recommend Hannah highly enough. You literally have nothing to lose."

How It Works
*Places are now sold out for my signature '6 Weeks to Clarity and Connection' small group coaching courses in April and May!* If you want to join courses starting later in the year, book a Discovery call now to get started. A Discovery Call is a short coaching taster session which gives you opportunity to get a feel for how I work, for me to find out a bit more about you as well, and for us to agree whether or not it's the right time for us to work together.
My hugely popular '6 Weeks to Clarity and Connection' course is the perfect starting point for anyone wanting to recharge their friendships in 2022, and places go very quickly whenever I launch a new course date. Each week we learn new tools, tackle limiting beliefs, build confidence, and experience rapid shifts in the quality of our relationships.
In addition, I also regularly run half day workshops, and offer a very small number of private coaching arrangements (no more than two at a time). Each week I go live in my private Facebook community, and share tips on every aspect of friendship and connection! Just leave your email address with me for more info!
The courage to connect starts with believing that love, support and being valued unconditionally are things each of us deserves, wholeheartedly - no matter where we come from, what we have done, or who we are.
