This work means so much to me. It empowers and gives confidence to women and men to truly choose the partner that they want in their life, to restore faith and value in themselves.
Today, I am dating a lovely man who has my interests at heart and who really wants to support me in the world, but it wasn't always like this for me. I used to be attracted to men who were self-centred and aloof, who couldn’t care for me on an emotional level. I married in hope but ended up losing myself and I lived my life around my husband. I was in therapy for a long time and we did couples therapy together but it didn't really work out. It’s only relatively recently from going through Calling in “The One” coaching myself that I was really able to change. I realised my own patterns, set in place in my childhood that caused me to really devalue myself. I felt like I was alone on an emotional level and that was how I was meant to be. With the support of my coach, I took responsibility for changing this by developing a way of being with myself that prioritised and cared for me. I became much more discerning about who I let in and what I would tolerate. I'm now with a man who can really meet me in mind, heart, and body.
