Very late to writing this blog, but that must be a good thing, workwise, right? Anyway, a Happy and Very Belated New Year to you all!
It’s been a really busy time with clients, as ever. There are always a lot of singles who want to find a partner for the new year and vow never to spend another Christmas alone. I’m pleased to say that a few of them are now happily dating so something must be working… Usual client numbers were swelled by a great piece in the Daily Mail‘s You Magazine in January. A four page feature on dating coaching, much of it about my work, including a section on the coaching session I did for the journalist – so many thanks Laura Silverman! It’s also a time when I do a lot of couple counselling – Christmas and New Year takes its toll on many relationships.
TV work has included doing a phone in on This Morning on sexless relationships, C5 News on what Valentine’s Day really means these days and various appearances on Sky News, including a piece on dating fraud.
I’ve also been chatting to Andrew Castle on LBC about getting on with your inlaws, BBC Radio London about how old is too old to be living with your parents (number 2 son, please take note!) and always enjoy my interviews with Julia-Hartley Brewer on Talk Radio – she always makes me laugh, though not sure that’s quite the intention 😉
I am still writing regularly for New! magazine with my celebrity observations, and those under the spotlight in the last few weeks have included Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell – a toxic relationship if ever there was one – David Beckham and Nicola Mclean. And of course Katie Price – as regular readers of my blog will know – there’s NEVER a month when I don’t write something about Katie P.
It’s also good to be contributing more and more to the national press. I’ve written a couple of times for the Daily Mail on both the rise of you tube vloggers and of Sugar Mummies – separate pieces of course. I’ve also written for the Daily Telegraph on ‘body revenge’ – getting fit after a break up – and The Independent on how Trump has all the makings of a malignant narcissist. I am not one to make prescriptive mental health judgements about anyone normally, but feel it’s totally fair game with him!!
I’ve also written for Grazia on the new Hater dating app (let’s hope it bites the dust pretty soon) and a couple of pieces for Glamour on Alpha and Beta women and red flags in relationships.
And for those of you who fancy trying out dating coaching, but don’t have the time (or money) for one on one coaching, I’m pleased to let you know that I now have an online dating course, which has a few freebies on it and an affordable course you can take. More info on @TheDateAdvisor or dateadvisor.love. And if you get bored with my voice, the videos have been put together and narrated by the lovely Jon Briggs, better known for being the voice of Siri in your iPhone or telling people they are the Weakest Link 😉
So, in all a busy couple of months, but much of it about dating and relationships – always the way in the New Year.
See you next time…
