Hi, I'm Jeannette
Relationship Counsellor, Dating Coach, devout 'Personal Development' devotee and lover of all things to do with love. I am in love with love. I want to wrap myself, and all others up in it until we remember that love is who we are, it is what we are made of and it is what we all deserve. That love is what transforms us.
Life is my greatest teacher
I have worn many professional hats in my day; counsellor, coach, interior designer, de-clutterer, artist and writer. No matter the details of any role they were all essentially about counselling and coaching, serving people.
It's pretty clear that my purpose and joy are to highlight new perspectives, to blow a fresh breeze over old stories, to help people change. I am juiced by change and I love helping people to let go of the past and develop new ways of being, thinking, living and relating - which I've been doing for 20+ years.
I have a post-grad Counselling degree, I have a mountain of professional experience but I consider my greatest credentials to be the love in my heart, my creative and intuitive fire, the long and winding trail I’ve trodden and the wisdom of my lived experience. These are what form the foundation of my life and work.
I've lived a big, adventurous life and I've done many a hard yard. I've had trials and tribulations, successes, accidents and illnesses and they have shaped and re-shaped and tuned me up to the place where I now love who I am, my life, my family, my tribe - and I love what I do, which includes;
Painting, writing, philosophy, walking in nature, cooking yummy healthy food, swimming, children and hanging with friends and my gorgeous partner - as well as working with YOU
I am living proof that healing our hurts is possible -
that change is too
I am living proof that it’s never too late to love and
Following 17 years of marriage, three in a disastrous union, ten more wallowing in a knee jerk ‘happily single and celibate’ illusion, five of serial dating - plus loads of self-reflection and dedication to healing old wounds, self-defeating patterns and commitment to change - I finally met my ‘diamond in the haystack’ man of my dreams.
The interesting thing though is he is actually - NOTHING like I dreamed of - He is so much better! We are now joyfully living and growing together through the many challenges and delights of a grand love affair.
This long and fraught trail to love led me to some fundamental keys about relationships along the way; the Law of Reflection, the magic of Magnetic Pull and the Power of Purpose.
These keys have not only changed my life, but my clients have been benefiting from this fresh and unique approach to personal development and healing their relationships ever since.
MEET Jeannette the Author
Writing is one of my greatest passions. I love to write about life and philosophy, personal growth, love and the human experience in my weekly blogs but I've taken a big step up and -
I am currently writing my first book called - 'The Dating Chronicles'
It's a collection of true stories from my five year stint as a serial dater dotted with the honest reflections that each date revealed to me about me.
It's a tale about my dance with the good, the bad, the ugly and the divine in search for what it means to love and be loved.
It's about how my wonderful partner and I found one another, what it all means, how you can do it too & beyond . . .
