Rachel’s approach to dating: Many people think that dating coaches are about trying to manipulate people or get them to act a part. Many coaches make unrealistic promises to revolutionise clients’ love lives and turn them into super-confident, magnetically attractive people. People can be cynical about these kind of claims, which are often based on pop psychology and not rooted in evidence. Rachel isn’t like that. She works with people to bring out the best in them on their dates and in their relationships. She gives them skills so they’re not held back by nerves, low self-esteem, or getting tongue-tied. She helps them get the conversation to a deeper level so they make a real connection with their date. Rachel enables them to work out what they need in a relationship and how to find out quickly whether the other person can meet those needs. She tells them honestly what subtle things they’re doing that might put people off when they first meet. But she doesn’t try and turn them into a different person.
