Hi, I’m Corrina Gordon-Barnes; I’m a relationship coach and I support you to show up as the best version of yourself with the people who matter most.
I believe in thriving partnerships and happy families. Through free weekly videos and one-to-one relationship coaching, I guide you in how to let go of resentments, love whole-heartedly and find peace.
I’m based in Cambridge England where I live with my wife Sam. I’m a certified co-active coach with 12+ years experience. I believe that miracles happen when one person is ready to be honest, open-minded, roll up their sleeve and take full responsibility for their experience.
If you want to feel at peace in your most significant relationships, let’s talk.
Corrina and Sam make up one of the wisest and coolest couples I have the fortune of knowing. Rock solid in their devotion to each other, they are the epitome of what a healthy and happy marriage should look like.
My Relationship With My Wife
Together for 13+ years, our happy marriage is not an accident, nor is it the result of good luck.
On paper, Sam and I weren’t a good match. We differed on pretty much every core issue that other relationship experts would say is important. If we’d tried to find each other via internet dating, we’d have missed each other; we’d have scored something like a 5% match (if we were lucky).
When we first got together, one of us was vegan, the other ate meat. One wanted kids, one didn’t. One believed in God, one believed in the power of humanity. One wanted to move to America, one didn’t. One liked to hoard, one loved to declutter. One refused to fly for environmental reasons, one delighted in toilet bleach and chain supermarkets.
We joke that I should get a t-shirt which reads: “I’m not gay but my wife is”. Sam had assumed she’d never date a bisexual, let alone marry one.
On paper, we were doomed. In life, we are thriving. We’re evidence that differences and apparent incompatibility – even on core issues and core values – are not blocks to the happy relationship you long for, whether with your family member or partner.
Many people believe that if you have doubts in a relationship, you’re not meant to be with that person. In the early years, I had many doubts. Often, I had one foot out of the door.
We’re evidence that doubts, hesitancy, and reluctance to commit do not mean that you and a loved one aren’t meant to be together. Uncertainty does not have to be a block to a happy relationship.
Relationship Coach – My Approach
A relationship coach will typically work with the couple (or the parent and child). I’m different – I work with one person at a time. This is crucial – it means you can find peace, even when the other person doesn’t change or engage. They’re not interested in personal growth? No problem – this is a one person journey: yours.
(Even if both of you want to engage, I’ll work with you separately.)
I’m a great fit for you if:
– You don’t like how you react when your buttons get pushed
– You want to stop blaming the other person
– You’re self-aware and hungry for the next level of growth
– You’re keen to learn the How To of unconditional love and forgiveness
I’ve been a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach for 11 years; I trained with the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and hold the ICF credential of Associate Certified Coach. I also facilitate The Work of Byron Katie and have staffed the School for The Work three times. Prior to becoming a coach, I was an English and Drama teacher, trained at Cambridge University.
Your work certainly facilitates some powerful shifts!
You are a wonderful facilitator with an enormous amount of heart, wisdom and integrity, and an astonishing ability to see clearly the conditioned patterns and limiting beliefs that keep us mesmerised by our stories.
You do this in an incredibly warm, compassionate and non-judgemental way that allows your clients to dive really deep and find the treasures waiting there.
In Case You Want To Know More
I’m from South-East London; I came to Cambridge University for my teacher training… and unexpectedly met the woman who would become my wife. We married in 2008 and have stayed living in Cambridge where we have over 20 family members within a 4 mile radius – plenty of practice for the process I now share!
I’ve been an entrepreneur since 2004. I’m always the first on the dance floor, I love clearing up after a party, if I were a patron saint of anything, I’d choose libraries, I’m still on the hunt for the perfect writing pen, and there’s a slice of home-made vegan cheesecake in my freezer at all times!
