RELATIONSHIPS ARE… QUEER, AWESOME, COMPLICATED, CONNECTED, ABOUT GROWTH & LETTING GO. Let’s get personal. As a coach I help my clients figure out what to do about their relationships. Because for most people relationships are complicated. For a while I thought I should call myself a break-up coach, because I have helped many through their times of break-up. Yet what I also do is help people imagine what an awesome relationship could look like for them. This is different for everyone. Exclusive romantic couple, polyamorous, platonic relationships, families of choice, … It is fair to say that I am very open to different forms of relationships and quite non-judgemental, when it comes to living your personal version of awesome relationships. But as I said, let’s get personal. My wife and I have been together for 12 years now and we have two kids 8 & 6 years old. While I have 10 years of experience as a relationship coach and counsellor, there are a lot of things I am personally still figuring out about living in a good relationship, being a good partner and mom while staying connected to myself. At the same time there are things I know certainly don't work for me (or for others in that matter), and I have learned some valuable lessons on why my relationship with Joanna was able to thrive the way it did. In celebration of our 10 year anniversary in 2017, I created an email series with stories that give you personal insights into everything relationship from my life with Joanna, and from my roughly ten years of experience as a coach and counselor on relationship issues. Whether you are getting over a break-up, are madly in love, stuck in the daily grind or happily single, I share these stories with you to make you laugh, inspire some new thoughts and give you an insight into how a queer relationship coach rocks her own relationship.
