One-To-One Relationship Coaching
I heartily recommend Corrina’s work. Corrina helped me shift some s*** that had festered for nigh on 20 years. Feels miraculous.
You’re here because you want an important relationship to be better
Whether it’s with your family member, partner, friend or work colleague, there’s disconnect where you want connection, frustration where you want ease, disappointment where you want contentment.
Right now, it might seem impossible to heal the divide – but with the approach I share, it is absolutely possible.
You can have more peace and connection with anyone who matters to you.
Corrina, this experience has been an absolute God-send for me and my family. It’s set us free from a painful and repeating cycle that was limiting us all.
I’d recommend this to anyone who finds themselves stuck in a painful and repeating pattern in a relationship. If you’re struggling to connect with someone, and if you’re willing to do the work on yourself so things can change, talk to Corrina. The price was amazing for such intensive one-to-one support, and the results we received are priceless.
What kind of relationship issues do people bring?
You’re in a relationship and you’re not sure: is this the right person for me? Should I stay, or should I leave?
You’re in a marriage / partnership and resentments have built up over the years. You want to get back to that feeling of being in love and on the same team.
You’re not getting on with a work colleague and this conflict is impacting your enjoyment and effectiveness at work.
Your sex life feels problematic. You feel rejected because your partner doesn’t initiate sex, or they approach sex as a way of getting their needs met rather than connecting with you. Perhaps you no longer feel attracted to them.
You can’t let go of the hurt after a relationship break-up – and it’s preventing you from moving on with a new partner.
Your child is taking a path or making decisions you’re not comfortable with.
Your parent mistreated you during your childhood and you can’t forgive them. You long for a closer relationship with them before they pass on.
Your parent is a burden – whether because of their emotional neediness or a physical illness.
Your relationship with a sibling is challenging – either historically, or it’s deteriorated from a previous closeness.
Whichever relationship hurts, you can bring it to relationship coaching.
I wanted to try this process but I was scared to talk about my relationships. What if I uncovered some kind of ugly truth: something I’d have to act on? And what of this all being on me? What would it feel like to take my own tricksy brain in hand?
Well. It was fun. Gentle. Challenging. All of those things, because of the exquisite skill and empathy with which you held space.
It felt like an invitation… and then another invitation. I felt I’d been given the gift of a delicious new perspective. I felt calmer and braver and curious about what else I might discover about exploring and deepening my bonds with those I love.
What a capable, loving, intelligent, warm and strong teacher you are, Corrina! Thank you.
Two options for one-to-one relationship coaching
The 3-day intensive: A private virtual retreat from the comfort of your own home. Deeply heal and clear what’s blocking connection with your family member or your partner. Two 90 minute sessions each day for three days.
The 3-month journey: Ongoing support, embedded in the daily realities of this challenging relationship. Three 1-hour sessions per month, for three months.
This was life-changing.
At first, the price seemed painful because I was paying all in one go, compared with counselling where you pay per session. However, the value was realised within two weeks – my family member visited, who I’d experienced difficult relations with for 40 years, and it was the easiest visit I’d experienced in decades – maybe even ever. It’s very hard to put a number on that – and the impact over the course of the next 10 or 20 years makes the price seem insignificant.
From counselling, I was used to being face-to-face in the same room – but Skype audio worked really well; it allowed for more intimate conversation, I could concentrate more deeply and take my time.
Would I suggest any changes or improvements to the format? No – more of the same, please!
To anyone considering this, I’d say: Just do it. It’s easy to focus on the cost of doing it – both in money and time – but think about the cost of not doing it. For me, it would have meant repeating the same old groundhog day of negative feelings, misunderstandings and lost years. Ask yourself: What are the opportunities? What might happen if you do it? What might be different?
Frequently Asked Questions – click to read
"Which is more effective: the 3-day or 3-month option?"
Both are highly effective. The two formats exist to suit your lifestyle and schedule.
People choose the 3-day intensive when there’s a time-sensitive element to the relationship e.g. you’ve reached a crisis or decision point, or a special event/visit is coming up. Also, when you prefer intensive work, don’t want these issues to drag out, or crave the opportunity to retreat and unplug for three days to immerse yourself in healing.
People choose the 3-month journey when you’re busy with family/work commitments but setting aside one hour per week is doable. You want to deal in real-time with what’s coming up in regular life, apply your discoveries, experience new results, and enjoy a positive feedback loop.
"What’s the price?"
You can make a single payment or choose three instalments of £300.
"How much is that in my currency?"
Use this currency converter to calculate the exchange rate between British Pound Sterling (£) and your currency.
"Does the other person need to be involved?"
No. One of the unique characteristics of this approach is that it’s a one-person journey: yours.
You can experience peace and connection, even if they don’t change or engage.
(If the other person would also like to work with me one-to-one, they can contact me directly. With this approach, there is no conflict of interest.)
"But it’s THEIR fault we have a problem!"
It certainly can feel that way and this is an important position to start from. The first preparatory exercise I’ll send you – The Rant – gives you the chance to express your frustration and disappointment.
But this work is not for you if you’d like to hold onto your complaints and blame. It requires an open mind and a willingness to look for new possibilities and see the relationship afresh.
Nor does the process take you into blaming yourself. It’s not about transferring judgement from them onto you. It’s not about passing the hot potato of blame back and forth. This approach is about the end of fault-finding.
"It doesn’t seem realistic that I could get to peace so quickly."
Unquestioned thoughts are the source of all your pain.
Until these thoughts are questioned, you can spend years on an issue, trying to solve it with mental busy-ness.
With this process, it’s different. You’re investigating the source of the problem. Once the mind no longer believes the stories, they’re gone and you are fully free from the pain.
If you’re not keen on a rapid and radical solution, this isn’t for you – but why drag out relationship anguish when you can get to peace swiftly?
"Who are you and why should I trust you?"
I’m Corrina Gordon-Barnes, a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach with 11 years experience. I’ve supported over 200 one-to-one clients plus hundreds of workshop and course participants. Here’s more about my background, my relationships and why I do this work.
"Is this therapy?"
No. This is not therapy or counselling.
I’m a certified coach sharing a radical process of inquiry; this approach enables you to identify the stories that create disconnect in your relationship – and then move beyond them to find peace and connection.
It’s easy to get started
Simply fill out this form and introduce yourself to me. I’ll get back to you within 2 working days to schedule your free 30-minute consultation.
In my relationship with my mom, my thoughts were provoking reactions that would cause arguments. You helped me see the layers of emotions, memories and judgements I’d accumulated over the years and look from a different angle.
Now, I’m able to express my feelings better and if a misunderstanding arises I’m able to sort it out with my mom calmly before we fall into an argument. Our relationship has become much better, warmer and we are more connected now.
Certain things completely blew my mind and I’d recommend this to everyone! Issues in relationships with others are just a symptom. Don’t wait till you create unbearable wounds and unbreachable distance between yourself and your loved ones. Stop the blame and start working on yourself.
