6 Weeks to Clarity and Connection
'This course has been absoutely life-changing'
My signature small-group coaching programme has been designed with singles / solos in mind. It's not about dating! It's about deep purpose, belonging and community. When you're going through the world solo, your relationship with yourself is key - the better you know and like yourself, the more able you will feel to navigate life's setbacks and chart a clear course forward. Your relationships with friends, family, neighbours and colleagues are incredibly important as well, as they're the way you access support, connection, validation and love. But what if you've lost track of who you are, and what you really need? What if your closest relationships aren't serving you as well as they could be? How do you create a purposeful, meaningful life, surrounded by people who help you move towards your goals?
If you've ever felt as though you 'give to' more than you 'get back' from the important people in your life, if you wish you had more fun, adventure, good conversation and support, and if you crave greater emotional intimacy, then 6 Weeks to Clarity and Connection is for you.
I've designed the course for conscientious types who want to build greater purpose and meaning into their lives, to feel more secure in their friendships and closest relationships, and confident in cultivating healthy and rewarding new ones.
On the surface of it, your life probably looks as though you have most things sorted out. You live independently and you have a job or other income that pays the bills. You have interests and hobbies, perhaps you're community-spirited. You have people you call friends, some family, perhaps colleagues or neighbours who you see regularly, and even an active social life. Even though you've faced setbacks, you’re grateful for the opportunities that you've been afforded. Oh, and you’re conscientious too. You care about doing the right thing, and you want the people you care about to be okay.
Even so, you sometimes feel like something's not working as well as it could.
Perhaps you keep things going on the surface, but underneath sometimes feel directionless, tired, and lacking in purpose. You probably feel busy, but don't feel as though you're thriving as much as you'd like to be. Perhaps you've been through a major life change (moving home, starting a new job, separation, health issues, beareavement) within the last few years, and nothing's quite felt the same since. Perhaps you work hard to maintain relationships with the important people in your life - you may even tolerate people whose company you don’t really enjoy, because you feel you don't have a choice. Yet you don't feel that effort's always repaid, or that your connections are as fulfilling and supportive as they could be. You sometimes wonder whther others value their relationship with you in the same way that you value them. You might feel guilt or shame that you're not in a romantic relationship at the moment.
You wish you knew where you were heading in life, and you crave greater emotional intimacy, understanding and support. On a deep level, you may worry about one day being left alone.
Although you're on top of things in many ways, you know that things could be working better for you than they are. You want to take positive action to bring greater clarity, purpose, meaning and connection into your life. You want to transform your relationships so that you feel more confident, valued, supported and fulfilled, and able to show up authentically.

WHAT IS A DISCOVERY CALL?
A Discovery Call is a coaching taster session, lasting 30 - 45 minutes. The session is completely free, and is simply an opportunity for you to get a feel for how I work. There's no obligation - if we get to the end of the call and you decide that you would like to leave it there, then that's absolutely fine. If you would like to talk about the course, then we can also spend some time talking about what you'd like to achieve, and then whether the course is the right fit to help you get the results you're looking for. I'm happy to answer any questions that you have, and if we agree the course is right for you, then we can talk about next steps. If we agree it's not, then I'll do my best to help you find something that is. Ultimately, my priority is getting you to where you want to be in the best possible way.
DO I HAVE TO DO A DISCOVERY CALL? I'D PREFER TO JUST BOOK STRAIGHT ONTO THE COURSE.
Assuming there's an open course available for booking, you can put down a deposit and reserve a place, however we will need to have a short phone call or video call before I can confirm your place. That's because I want you to get the greatest value for your time and your money - coaching isn't right for everyone, and this course may not be the right fit for you. It's really important that we talk that through before the course starts.
IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO 'TEACH' CONNECTION?
Absolutely! The ways we connect as adults - with ourselves and other people - usually stem from behaviours learnt from those around us - particuarly our parents and older siblings - when we are very young. While the way you go about your life might feel natural and as though it's the only way to do things, it's actually just a series of habits that you're probably not even aware of most of the time! Other people often aren't aware of how they connect either. In this course, we'll focus on making the unconscious conscious, handing you control of your connections and ensuring you go away feeling empowered to manage your life in a way which leaves you feeling seen, connected and fulfilled.
WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching isn't counselling, and it isn't therapy, though I sometimes draw on therapeutic techniques. Coaching helps you define a compelling vision for your future, and helps you remove blocks, tackle limiting self-beliefs, and build new behaviours and habits to help you get there. Coaching is an active process - far removed from passive powerpoint presentations, coaching encourages you to take responsibility for your learning, to get used to being on the edge of your comfort zone, and to commit to change. It's not always a comfortable process, and I won't always tell you what you want to hear! But I will be absolutely on your side - and together we'll move you closer to getting the results you're looking for.
SHOULD I WORRY IF I FEEL LIKE I NEED CONNECTION COACHING?
Absolutely not! People seek coaching for many different reasons - it's very common to have career coaching if you're looking for a change in direction, executive coaching for senior leaders, life coaching for general direction, and dating and relationship coaching is also really common. We all have aspects of our lives we need to fine tune, and our non-romantic connections are just one of those areas.
WHY GROUP COACHING?
When we're thinking about connection, group coaching is where the magic happens. Other people's insights and experiences are as powerful for your learning as anything I can teach, and it's only in a group coaching environment that we'll get that benefit. Group coaching can be less intensive than 1-1 coaching, giving you time to reflect and process without always being in the limelight. You'll learn from others in a small, supportive group of people all working towards the same goal, and you'll be able to continue your learning with the same group after the course ends. I'm a huge fan of this model, which is why my signature course is designed for groups! I understand though that group coaching won't be appropriate for everyone's circumstances, and I do offer a small number of 1-1 coaching arrangements as an alternative. These run over the same 6 week timeframe, with space to tailor the content perfectly to your needs. Drop me a line if this is something you'd like to discuss.
CAN ANYONE JOIN THIS COURSE?
No. This course is open to those who are living solo / single, and whose primary relationships are with their friends, family, housemates, neighbours and/or colleagues, rather than a 'significant other.' This may also include some people in romantic relationships (for example those who are newly in relationships and in long distance relationships). It may be possible for others to take part - we would need to have a conversation so that I can understand your specific circumstances.
That's not all though - this course demands introspection, openness to new ideas, the willingness to accept responsibility for the quality of your current relationships, and the determination to do things differently. So that each course offers the highest quality experience, it's important that everyone who takes part is open to those conditions.
I'M NOT COMFORTABLE DOING THIS COURSE IN A GROUP - DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE SESSIONS?
For this specific course, I'd strongly encourage you towards group coaching, even if it feels uncomfortable at first. That's because the focus is on connection, and practising / learning as part of a small, supportive group is a powerful way to get the results you are looking for. We spend time at the start of the course agreeing ground rules for how we're going to work together to make sure everyone feels safe, valued, supported and able to contribute.
I do offer a small number of bespoke private coaching arrangements - use this form to let me know what you're looking for.
CAN I BOOK IF I DON'T LIVE IN THE UK?
Yes! You're welcome to book from anywhere in the world, as long as the times suit you (all times in GMT), as all sessions are run online. If you can't see a time that suits, leave your details and I'll see what I can do - if I have enough interest from a particular part of the world then I can look at running a new course.
HOW MUCH DOES THE COURSE COST?
The full six week course costs £349.99. This represents amazing value for the work that we do.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR THOSE IN FINANCIAL HARDSHIP?
I occasionally run special offers, however the course is already competitively priced. It's important to remember that you're not just paying for time - you're paying for the positive impact on your quality of life of the work you'll put in, and the investment in your future. If you're not sure about whether this is the right investment for you at this point, a good question to ask yourself is how much your 90 year old self would tell you it was worth investing to create the kind of change in your life that you want to see.
I'm happy to offer payment plans where the cost is spread over either three or six months.
WHERE DO COURSES TAKE PLACE?
All sessions take place online via Zoom. You will be sent full instructions prior to joining.
