I don't know about you, but I led a very different life from my mother. She was a secretary and met my father when she was 19, she had three children in her 20s. I went to university, got 2 degrees, became a Chartered Accountant and was focused on my career for much of my life. Growing up in New Zealand, I was encouraged by my family, by my school & by society to be ambitious.
There was a government campaign when I was growing up 'Girls can do anything'.
The crunch came when I was working hard on a property development in Knightsbridge expected to last one year but which took five, during which time I kept thinking it'd finish and I'd start dating again. But every three months something else went wrong and I put it off. I never intended to be single for five years...
It happened gradually, month by month, because I didn't prioritise my personal life. And one day I realised how unhappy I was. I didn't want to live like this any more. I wanted love in my life, not something I always put off. So I made time for it and met my amazing partner Graham within three months.

So How Did I Get Started as a Dating & Relationship Coach?
Several years ago Penelope asked for my help. She'd been with her boyfriend for five years and keen to get engaged for the last two. We did some relationship coaching together and three weeks later she was engaged…and radiantly glowingly happy at the wedding three months later.
This inspired me to help other career focused women, so I could see that same joy again! Since then it's become my mission to help women facing romantic and emotional challenges to learn, grow and achieve passionate and fulfilled relationships.
The right relationship is a source of enormous happiness. You too can have this in your life. I can show you how to find love – to have a wonderful relationship with someone you care deeply about and who cares deeply for you in return.
What makes Elizabeth's approach unique?
I use a one-to-one coaching approach. Every session is tailored to you, to help you become a magnet for the love of your life as quickly as possible.
I help you fall in love with yourself first, so then you can fall in love with someone else.
