Are you struggling to understand why you're single or why none of your relationships work out? Do you look on with bemusement as friends find partners, wondering if you'll ever meet your match?

Are you tired of repeating the same mistakes in relationships and getting the same results? Are you over dating commitment-phobes, flaky partners or people who can't meet your needs? Or are you tired of not getting a date at all? Do you feel like there's something wrong with you because you've had so few relationships? Are you worried you're running out of time to find love in order to form a family?

If so, I know how you feel. I’ve been there. I had lots of dysfunctional relationships and long stretches of involuntary singleness (as well as a few periods of joyful singleness). I remained single into my early 40s. I kept falling for commitment-phobes and unavailable men, or running away from available men. I got hurt and I hurt others. 

However, I changed my patterns, walked through my fears, committed to a healthy relationship and married a wonderful man in June 2019.

I'd now like to invite you to prioritise your romantic life and to make a commitment to your future happiness by taking my flagship transformational course, How to Fall in Love - Laying the Foundations


Join me as I guide you through the steps I took, and many clients have taken, to reverse years of dead-end relationships, self-sabotage and unwanted singleness in order to fall in love and form a healthy, fulfilling, long-lasting relationship.

How to Fall in Love - Laying the Foundations, however, is about so much more than finding a relationship. It's about reclaiming our relationship with ourselves, building our sense of self-esteem and self-worth and having the confidence to go for our dreams, in life and in love. 

After recently completing the course, Gemma said: "I found the course to be incredibly powerful in changing my mindset and attitude. I feel like I am in an entirely different place than I was a month ago, mentally, emotionally and physically."

Alice, who is now in a healthy relationship, said: "I feel like an entirely different person and I'm not exaggerating."

And aother participant, Briony, described the course as "a really wonderful, positive experience. I feel much calmer, much stronger and much less panicky."

Katherine's How to Fall in Love course is exceptional


"Katherine's How to Fall in Love course is exceptional. It helps you in so many ways, besides intimacy and falling in love. Katherine brings back hope into your life and gives you just the right balance of gentle encouragement, personal insight and expert coaching. What’s more you feel that Katherine genuinely cares. She’s thinking of you even during ‘out of office’ hours. With Katherine’s support, I found the courage to proactively approach and start a new relationship with a caring and loving man. My eyes were open to all the pitfalls of my past and I was dating with an awareness I had never had before."

I've eventually allowed myself to open up and trust myself and my new boyfriend


"Katherine taught us how to listen to ourselves, to do things that truly make us feel alive and to test out our discoveries. I've eventually allowed myself (and am still allowing myself) to open up and trust myself and my now boyfriend, who feels just right, although quite different from what I imagined. I'm now starting to imagine a future for myself with a truly amazing, fun and secure person, which I had never thought possible or experienced before. I would recommend Katherine's course, book and Facebook group as a place to join with others on a journey of discovery, connection and courage. It will soften, challenge and inspire you."

I was lost as to why I couldn't find love


"I was lost as to why I couldn’t find love. Katherine helped me to look at my relationship history from a very different perspective and to understand who I am and why I am how I am. Most importantly, she helped me to discover a pathway to get me to where I wish to be. I'll be eternally grateful that I took the plunge and trusted Katherine with my innermost thoughts and feelings"

Suddenly, love came naturally to me


"Katherine's coaching has been incredibly helpful and so worth the investment. With Katherine's guidance, I finally dared to fully embrace and love myself and to believe that I am worthy of being loved. Not long after that, I entered into a new relationship. Suddenly, love came naturally to me. Katherine continues to guide me, helping me to see that it is safe to be vulnerable and authentic in my relationship - that it is safe to be me"

One of the best investments in myself that I have ever made


"I chose to work with Katherine as my coach for a number of reasons - in particular the combination of her professional credibility and experience with her personal integrity and honesty. It's difficult to express how great a help and support she was to me during this challenging period. I think my coaching with Katherine is one of the best investments in myself that I have ever made and I highly recommend her services"

Katherine has helped me to see the blocks I've had to intimacy


"I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Katherine to help and guide you through the emotional rollercoaster of dating and relationships. 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. Katherine's approach is a delightful mix of wisdom, gentleness, honesty, authenticity and humour”

We've got to the bottom of stuff that I've never been able to understand before


"My experience of working with Katherine has been really profound. She is very very good at what she does. We've got to the bottom of stuff that I've never been able to understand before"

Katherine has been where I am so I trust her experience


“Katherine's course has helped me to stop letting my imagination run riot but instead to focus on the practical steps I can take to create the life I want. She has taught me so much. Because Katherine takes my welfare in the world of dating seriously, so do I. She is encouraging and understanding. She's been where I am so I trust her experience"

I'm in an entirely different place to a month ago


"I have found the course to be incredibly powerful in changing my mindset and attitude. I feel like I am in an entirely different place to where I was a month ago, mentally, emotionally and physically."

A really wonderful, positive experience


"This course has been a really wonderful, positive experience. If I compare how I felt five weeks ago to how I feel now, I feel much calmer, much stronger and much less panicky. The best thing about this course is that it teaches you to be strong and resilient so that you feel ready to meet someone. I'm more aware of my attitudes and I feel more positive and confident about who I am and about what I want from somebody - or what I don't want from somebody."

  • When does the course start?

    The course begins as soon as you enroll. You will have access to Day One's materials on your enrollment day. The course content will then be drip-fed to you every day. Depending on the pace at which you travel through the course, you'll receive content every day or on alternate days, with some rest and reflective days and some time to consolidate.

  • How much time does the course take?

    The more time you put in, the more you will get out of the course, but I understand you have a busy life. Ideally, you'll be able to dedicate 15-30 minutes every day to the course, and up to an hour on a few days. Some days have more written exercises, while other days are more reflective. If you take the course over 10 or 12 weeks, instead of 5, the material will be more spread out.

  • How will I receive the course content?

    Once you have signed up, you will be taken to a dashboard within this Thinkific course platform. That's where you can find all the course content. I suggest you stay logged in to the course platform on your laptop, tablet or smartphone so it's quick to access the content every day. If you log out, you simply log back in every day and begin where you left off.

  • When will I receive the course content?

    You will have access to all of Day One's content as soon as you enroll. After that, the course will be drip-fed to you every day. Please note that Day Two's content will be drip-fed to you exactly 24 hours after you sign up, so if you'd like to receive content at 7 am every morning, please enroll on the course at 7 am. If you sign up for the course at 12 pm, your next day's content will be available at 12 pm, and the same for the remaining days of the course. You can drop back a day or slow the course down by several days, as you wish.

  • What if I fall behind schedule?

    If you aren't able to keep up with the content as it's released, don't worry. You can take as long as you like to complete the course. If you want to rush through the course content, however, you'll find you're not able to. I've deliberately designed the course to encourage you to slow down and allow space for reflection and processing of any feelings that come up.

  • How do I arrange my 1:1 coaching call?

    If you sign up for the VIP option that includes a 60-minute, 1:1 coaching call for a discounted rate of £150, I will be in touch with you by email to arrange our call, which can be scheduled during the course or within three months of purchasing the course.

  • Can I talk to Katherine before investing in the course?

    Of course! If you'd like to speak to me about this course before deciding whether to join or to find out about my other courses, retreats or 1:1 coaching, email [email protected] and we'll set up a 30-minute discovery call.
