Madeleine Mason, Dating Psychologist & Director of PassionSmiths

Dating psychologist Madeleine Mason offers a flexible coaching programme to suit your dating needs. Typically she helps people get into relationships, but the coaching can take on any form.  This is flexible coaching, not too dissimilar to having a personal trainer at the gym. You set your goals and in collaboration with Madeleine work together on achieving them – whether it is starting from scratch on a dating profile for online dating, how to be more confident in dating, how secure a second date to how you can tell whether someone is genuinely interested in you and how to take things further. The flexible check-ins allow you to gain most value from the coaching. For example, if you have been on a date and you don’t know what to do next, or you have received a text and don’t know how to respond and need someone to talk to about it. You may have been on several dates, but don’t know how to take it to the next level and you need a quick check in or chat about it. Whatever arises for you, you can book your check-in session as and when.

Inevitably when we date, questions of uncertainty crop up and this is where the coaching comes in handy. It tries to keep you sane when you sometimes feel like giving up or some sort of insecurity or anxiety threatens to hijack the situation. Most people turn to their friends, but often their well-meaning words don’t help and sometimes are downright unhelpful. For example, the time when someone was worried that their boyfriend was going to break up and the friends reassured them that he would probably soon propose, making it worse when he in fact did break-up. Others find that not involving others in the ups and downs of the dating journey, frees them up to be themselves when they are with their friends and family.

Madeleine will guide you through the journey, even though you are doing the ‘leg-work’. Her empathetic nature and dedication to getting you into a relationship is second to none. Having said that, no expert, book, course, programme or pill can ever guarantee that you will get a relationship, there are too many variables and factors that are out of the hands of the experts. You are the magic ingredient. What Madeleine does is guide you through your blind spots, supports you when you feel uncertain and with a background in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), she uses techniques and tools that give you the upper hand on your chances to find love.

From May 2017, the monthly fee is £350 per month for a minimum of three months, with opportunity to extend. Each month you get a 50 minute face-to-face session with weekly 25 minute check-ins over the phone. Depending on your situation the calls are tailored to fit around your dating. For example it might make better sense to have a call the day after you have gone to that party, attended a dating event or been on that date. All coaching is done in all confidentiality to British Psychological Society ethical standards.

The coaching programme starts in the first Monday or Tuesday of every month. If that falls on a bank holiday, a different day will be negotiated.
