Women Want A Real Man!!!

Most woman reading this will share this view “Women Want A Real Man” and in their mind have their own version of what that means. What she thinks and feels, needs to be respected and most of all listened to.

I strongly urge all men to read this:

I also know that men want to be able to please their partner, they feel terrible inside when they feel they can’t, or they feel they have tried and tried, but it’s hopeless.

So with these two desires, her wanting to be loved in the way she wants and him with the burning desire to please her and make her happy this should be easy, RIGHT? You’d think!

So let’s go some way to define what a Real Man is from a womans perspective. [Read more...]

Fears: A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

Most of us are aware that whatever you fear usually gets created, if you are not aware then this is important, if you are aware then this is still very important because it can affect your behaviours.

For example: If you don’t trust your partner, checking up on them, asking when they will be back, what are they doing, who they are speaking to, checking emails and texts, will result in them feeling so trapped that you become someone they cannot trust.

Jealousy is easy to spot, but fears are not as simple as we might imagine to understand.

What happens if YOU are not aware of your biggest fear?

I would say that a good 98% of the people I see have a belief that they fear something only to discover there are 5-10 things they fear more, and these are driving their behaviours, without them knowing. [Read more...]

Why is it so difficult for couples to fix their relationship problems?

What I’m going to share today is critical to understand if you want to make lasting changes in your relationship. I have not spoken about this before on this blog so it’s important to understand.

Very few couples do this automatically and this is one of the major factors to why there are so many single parents, broken families, affairs, separations and divorces.

By understanding and helping couples understand what is important to know in their relationship  is one of the key factors to the success in all my relationship clinics.

If you have been following my posts you will have learnt that couples “presenting problems” such as arguments, loss of passion, lack of trust, etc, are not the real problems in a couples relationship. Although with no other logical knowledge this will be their incorrect assumption. [Read more...]

How to Avoid Serious Relationship Problems

Every relationship is going to run into problems. Relationship problems are normal part of life. Many people become worried when the arguments start. Arguments are a sign of passion in the relationship so assume this is normal, as long as they don’t turn into physical violence. However your relatiosnhip may need some attention if the conflicts are getting frequent.

Most people automatically assume they may not be compatible if they start to argue a lot. Don’t assume this, as the issues that’s causing the arguments could be very simple to overcome.

Using “Logic” to fix your problems?

Most couples try using logic to fix their problems and this rarely works. There is very little logic in the communication between a man and a woman that’s understood by each other, especially when emotions are high.

I become more worried for couples when the arguments stop, this is because I know the couples will have tried to communicate with each other, but now they no longer see the point.

An example: Many men feel that the quiet is a good thing, but this is not the case. If your partner has stopped the arguments then she is likely to be locking down ready to run, or could be going into depression. [Read more...]

Shocking Discovery

When in sessions there is one part of what I teach that has the most shocking response from all my clients. I have had people display tears, anger, disbelief, frustration, confusion all at the same thing.

They cannot believe what has been happening in their lives without them knowing. Some have lived their whole lives this way, some have lost relationships, hurt loved ones, hurt themselves…

Some clients, senior people with significant responsibility drop their head, speechless.

What is this one thing that has such a big impact, what is it that causes so much emotion.

You see the most intelligent people start to understand with me how their life has been set up to be a life they can’t win in.

They discover that even if they are successful they will feel, unfulfilled or unhappy [Read more...]

Relationships hits trouble – Is the end the solution!?

When a relationship hits rocky ground and the future seems very uncertain. The couples natural reaction is to want to fight what they believe is causing the problem...

A lot of couples blame each other, so they assume that their compatibility is wrong and blame the relationship. They believe that this where their fight is, so they start the fight there. Seems logical of course, I’m not feeling good based on your behaviours so the reason we are in trouble is because of you, or we are just not a good fit.

Obvious solution, end the relationship!

That will get rid of the initial pain and open up the possibility of a far better future…however…

…It is likely that the relationship patterns will run again, and show up in the next relationship too. It’s not until individuals go through this a few times and a lot of pain, do they start to question what the real problem might be.

What if the fight is not the fault of the relationship…

…what if you think it’s the relationship and your wrong, who has to pay for that major error of judgement?

What if the behaviours in you, or your partner was driven from past events long before you met. This means it’s not the real you, or your partners’ true self, or your relationship that is the real problem! [Read more...]

Which Choices Will Create The Life You Want?

The life and relationships you have today is the result of the choices you have made from the moment you were born. What you think, how you think, the meanings you give what you think. Your thoughts and what they mean, create choices that are specific and unique to you and will help you to feel good or bad.

Some people think and get rich, some people think and have great relationships, some people just don’t think about what matters yet complain that the world is unfair.

What you think creates your choices and thus your results

If you think about it every step of the way you have been making choices from your childhood through to your adult life today. Every result that you have today and in the past has been created based on a series of choices you made, good and bad.

These choices create the habits and these habits create the life you have right now! [Read more...]

Will My relationship Last?

So you want to know if your relationship will last? Of course you do, who wouldn’t! When couples come to see me, no matter what their relationship challenge is from arguments to affairs they have the power to make any situation better, all that’s missing is the know how.

Couples without knowing, together create the perfect growth conditions for agruments, affairs, lack of trust, lack of care, and then wonder why they have no sex life, and then no relationship. They are very successful at creating misery for themselves and each other.

How does this happen and what can you do about stopping this in your relationship?


I wonder what advice you would give to others if they told you they were being treated badly by their partner.

Would your advice be to change who their are and what they stand for? [Read more...]

Dominant Mothers Connection to Relationship Problems

The more people I see with relatioship problems the more convinced I am that we are on the road to big trouble in our society. Many cases that come to me have a consistent theme.

The parents of those sitting in front of me have had a mother who is dominant in their life. Just to make my position crystal clear I am not blaming the mother for the problems, becuase they are reacting to their personal life conditions the only way they know how.

What I am saying is when the mother becomes dominant over the father, the children’s map of how relationships should be become confused with natures intention, and so with no other information they consider this pattern of relationship behaviour to be normal.

Yet when they put this version of normality into action in their own relationships, they discover it doesn’t feel right because their true self wants to be in the gender nature designed for them. [Read more...]

When the chemistry goes and relationships change…

Today we are looking at what happens in most relationships and how to avoid doing the same..

Do you remember when you met your partner and how it was for you? How you felt when you thought of them, how you felt just before you saw them, how life suddenly started to feel different and exciting again.

Do you remember what you did? The chances are you actually did very little, the chemical reaction within you created all the drive you needed to want to do all the things that convinced you and your partner to decide that creating a life together would be amazing.

When couples first meet they usually can’t keep their hands off each other and they create the illusion that this is how life will be. This becomes fact within their minds that they are some how unique and problems only happen in other peoples lives.

But then something changes…

The chemical reaction goes, and the motivation stops you doing everything that worked and fear and problems are now not far away. The couple then start hurting each other as they blame the other for the change. Pulling love away as a means to get back to the euphoria they once felt.

The couple that once put so much effort in to giving, have slowly become takers and this strategy never works.

If you give love to receive love then you are “trading in love” and that never feels good.

The answer is to give love regardless of what others do, you do this because this who you are… “A loving person!”

Defining who you are and living by your own rules and consistently and fearlessly becoming who you are is critical for your happiness. This is the real secret to passionate lasting relationships.

If you create an amazing version of you, that lives your life to your highest standards, you instantly become more attractive and happier.

When fear strikes couples, they pull love away, the couple instantly become unattractive to each other, the reverse of what they really want.

When couples come to me for help, usually blaming each other for their problems, one of my key goals is to build their confidence to be fearless in their quest to be who they really are. Not the distorted unhappy version that fitted in, trying to re-balance the relationship to feel happy again, but never sure quite how to fix it.

Becoming who you really want to be takes courage, but when you do, you’ll feel the spark ignite within you, as you start to create the behaviours that first attracted you both.

You cannot point the finger of blame at your partner if you have not been who you really are too. Stop looking for blame today and start looking for new behaviours that create relationships that grow and ignite passion.

  • Too many people claim to be honest, yet they are not honest with themselves about what they have become in their own relationship.

Which version of “YOU” is running your relationship?

Have you noticed that you have to change your behaviours as life conditions change. For example you are different at work than you are with friends and family, or you are different with children than you are with you partner.

All day and every day you are shifting into different versions of yourself without thinking. We all do this and with little thought to what it really means. The meanings are important for your future…

You have been doing this since childhood and so whatever life condition you were presented with as a child, this sets a template for how you will deal with certain life situations as they present themselves..

For Example: A child that has been “abused” in some way might have a desire to “escape”. Whenever life becomes difficult for them in the future they will run that pattern.

How they run the pattern is to shift into a fearful version of themselves, just like we all do all day every day with other versions of ourselves without thinking. In this fear version of themselves they will run the “escape” pattern and so they could run away, or become introverted or shut down.

To them this is totally normal, but to others and especially in relationships when the relationship presents them with problems, they are likely to run their learnt pattern.

The problem is this learnt pattern was created by a child to cope with their perception of the world and how life should be. As adults without knowing we run these patterns automatically, but due to the immaturity of the creator of the pattern these patterns never work as adults.

It’s like having a child running your life when life conditions get tough. Of course the result of the pattern is nearly always destructive. It can wreck lives, families and be passed as a pattern through generations.

Fear pattern can manifest themselves in many ways, you may become angry and become loud to cope. You may turn to people pleasing that disrespects you, some turn to substances.

Whatever coping mechanism you use, when you or your partner go into fear, you can be sure it was learnt, it and it will feel as natural as breathing.

Is your partner destroying your relationship, they used to be wonderful, but today something has changed? Are you noticing that you have change and behave in ways that confuse you.

Maybe you are having affairs and don’t understand why.

These all create behaviours that can create depression and breakdowns as we start to reject ourselves not knowing that it is only one part of ourselves that has created the problem yet we reject every part even the wonderful parts of us leading us into despair.

Many couples divorce because of these patterns as both people go into fear states when they feel that something is wrong, or they can’t see a future together. This perspective is an illusion based on the parrten and is why those that do split or divorce then live to regret it. It is why so many second marriages end in divorce fast as the pattern is now on read alert from the first failed marriage.

  • Most of the time the relationship is not the problem the pattern is the culprit.

I run self discovery sessions for individuals and couples to understand what is really going on and how to cope with it. For more information please click here.

How to get what you want…

This is important for you: The key to getting everything you want from relationships, to stuff, to life is down to a few key elements. No matter what you want out of life I’m going to share with you the formula for creating successful futures.

All you have to do is follow this:

  • Understand what you want and why you want it in detail. Many people create ill formed goals and so set themselves up for failure.
  • Understand who you have to be to make that goal a possibility. In other words with your goal in mind what sort of behaviours and thoughts are most likely to get it.
  • With the correct “state” in place and your “goal(s)” defined in detail, the next step is to define the key steps you need to make your goal a possibility.
  • With everything now set for success, all you have to do is take massive action and be persistent, and disciplined every day. When you practice all this every day your chances for success are increased thousand fold.

So will you get what you want now? NO! Not always…

The difference between calculated guessing and true greatness is the ability to be so sure of your goals that even when you fail you take that failure as feedback, learn from your mistakes and redefine the steps and start again.

  • The key to achieving true greatness and success is to make more mistakes faster than anyone else, you will eventually run out of ways to do it wrong.

So as you can see if making mistakes is one of the keys to success, and most people are afraid to make mistakes, you can see why so many people fail to realise their dreams.

Ego’s, fears and limiting beliefs plus ill defined goals all equal a lack of power to control your future and create mediocre lives.

Is that what you want? Or do you want more?

If you do please get in touch today

What will make your partner want to leave you?

In short your partner will have a desire to leave if they cannot see a future with you, or the future they can see is one they fear having.

Of course what they are experiencing is a perception of what might be, but to them it feels real and so taking how they feel seriously is important.

When someone in a relationship goes for prolonged periods of not feeling good about themselves in the context of their relationship they have to find ways in which they can feel happy.

What the relationship experiences is where it used to fulfill the needs of the individuals it no longer does and so the individuals start to look outside of the relationship to feel good again.

Woman may go to friends, children or parents to feel important or secure. Men might work longer hours to gain the same security.

The couple can start to resent the areas of their partners life that have taken their place.

If this goes on for too long the next stage is fear for their future as resentment starts to settle in. As life becomes more difficult for the couple and harmony has left the relationship, both people can start to meet their needs in way that contradicts what in normal life they would class as bad behaviour.

They start to behave in ways that are the total opposite of what they really believe in. In these places activities such as affairs become a real possibility.

What’s key to understand is as soon as anyone in a relationship is not having their critical needs met they will have no choice but to go elsewhere to get them met. This is not choice it is a critical human need. You maybe thinking that sex is the driver, but in many cases it’s a need to feel important, loved, secure or maybe just to have adventure where the relationship is stale.

So unless you know what your partner needs how can you help them meet them. If you don’t know what you need how can your help your partner be successful with you.

Many couples fall into this trap, they have no idea how to communicate what they really need and so the relationship is basically a ticking bomb.

It will end up either over, or passionless… Do you understand your partners needs?

Can I change my partner?

One of the questions I get asked from individuals wanting help for their relationship is what if my partner will not attend the couples sessions.

This is always a struggle because if the couple want to fix their problems and only one person believes in getting help then how can the help work?

The answer is with the right approach if one person changes their behaviour in a relationship the result is always their partner has no choice but to change in response.

You can try this yourself, change your behaviour at home tonight make a conscious effort to be different, maybe happier, sexier, whatever feels OK to try.

Watch how your partner reacts to you. Of course just behaving happier or sexier will not fix your relationship problems, but it will prove that you have the power to get your partner to react to you when you change your behaviours.

When you see this for yourself you will be left with the question “…what changes can I make today and every day to my own behaviour that will positively impact my relationship?”

Of course every situation is unique and so once I discover what motivates your partner and what could be causing problems then I can help you understand how to make changes in you to make life at home a happy place to live again.

You have more power than you think you have, do the test watch what happens and let us know how you get on…

What are the weapons in your relationships

Many relationships are suffering today because as the individuals in the relationship start to feel something is not right for them they use certain behaviours to help them feel safe again.

The behaviours are the tools that individuals have learnt that keeps the relationship together, but in a way that makes them both unhappy.

The couple maybe experiencing a conflict of not knowing what to do. If they stay in the relationship they are in pain, miserable, if they leave the relationship they cannot imagine life without their partner.

The weapons that people use can range from humor to threats to leave, from withholding intimacy to running away.

They use these tools as leverage to get what they want from their relationships. The problems is the weapons or tools are being used to re-balance the relationship from a place of fear.

A fear of life not being the way the individual wants it to be. So the actions and result all come from and create a distortion of the truth in the relationship.

The key to helping relationships is to help the couple feel safe enough and incentivised enough that there is a better way to achieve the security they both desire whilst creating harmony.

Is this happening in your relationship?

What “change” will positively impact your relationship

When we experience relationship problems the natural response is to focus on what is happening in the moment. So what we do is focus on the problem.

The problem is usually just a symptom of the real issue and so whilst the couple may put lots of effort into trying to sort out what they think is the problem, their problem keeps coming back, frustrating the couple to assume that they could be incompatible.

Understanding what is at the root of couples problems is harder for couples to understand. All they know is they are becoming increasingly frustrated that their relationship is not working.

So what can couples do to sort things out. To start with do not focus on your problems, because all you will get is more problems.

The solutions are not in your problems they are likely to be in your past. The combination of your pasts will be creating behaviours that equal the relationship you have today.

Do not underestimate how powerful the past can be on the meanings you are giving your relationship today. After all, our survival is all about learning what equals danger and if in the past you have been hurt in someway then that will affect you moving forward and especially if the life condition feels similar.

Relationships are complex and so treating them as if they are simple might be easy to manage, but the results could end up hurting you more.

The biggest change you can make is to get educated on how your relationship functions, and what will give you all you want and what will destroy it.

Call me today and get the answers you’ve been looking for.

No one wants to “WORK” at their relationship!?

I have to say, I can’t blame them… How many times have we heard that we have to work at our relationships. Do we listen to these words and think FANTASTIC I can’t wait, or do we shudder at the prospect. I mean it’s not an attractive prospect is it, at best it’s boring…

Isn’t the word “work” a suggestion that it’s going to be a labor, tough, hard, or something we do in return for something? Where does unconditional love fit in here?

Plus what kind of “work” are they suggesting. I’m a Relationship Coach and I’m not sold.

How about this…

If you were to take constant actions to do something, and it made you feel great, would you be more likely to do it?

Of course you would… If you enjoyed it would it feel like work? Of course not.

I help men and women discover how to change their behaviours so they can become successful with each other, once they get over the initial fear of doing something new, they embrace their new skills with both hands, quite literally in many cases.

You see getting a relationship to be successful is not “work” it is fun, but only when you know how.

It’s only work to those who have no idea what they are doing and so it’s the trial and error small successes and big failures that feel like hard work.

You maybe successful at creating a relationship that feels wrong, but here’s the good news, you know that what you practice consistently works. So all you have to do is practice something different and that will work too.

When you learn how to help your partner feel great about themselves in the context of you then they will stop at nothing to help you feel amazing about you too.

I know for a fact that when men learn the secrets to how to make their partners happy they will stop at nothing. When women learn what their men really want then the fun can start all over again…

No work, just fun and intelligent behaviours designed for relationship growth and lasting passion.

Interested, give me a call.

Relationship Advice: Reverse Polarity

Reverse polarity is a when a couple finds themselves in a relationship where the woman is the strong, driving force, more masculine than feminine. The man is usually more feminine in his approach in the relationship maybe wanting a quiet life and just going with the flow even if he does not want to.

What seems strange is at work however he could be strong and respected he could even be a leader on some level. The woman could also connect with her feminine side with friends and children. So day-to-day life does actually bring out their true polarity yet in their relationship they switch back.

Lots of relationships work this way and no one is qualified to judge them, couples that live this way and are happy have no need or desire to change for them it works.

The problem arises when one, or both people in the relationship are not happy, but don’t know why. Reverse Polarity could be the cause, because the what the individuals in the couple really want is to be more of the gender they are designed to be, consciously this will not stand out as the problem and so the problems will present themselves in different ways.

The woman may complain at the man about day-to-day stuff, the man will shut down or remove himself in some way this create a bigger gap between the couple as she becomes stronger to cope and he becomes more beaten knowing he can never please her.

For example: A woman can resent her partner for not being the man in the relationship. She wants desperately to connect with that vulnerable, soft version of herself. But the thought of doing so scares her, because she has a fear that she will not be safe if she does. She needs that masculine strength and power to cope with life. At some point in her life she learnt this.

She could have come from a divorced family or she may have created the masculine versions in past relationships to cope with being mistreated or her current relationship could have created this tough version of her.

He has also learnt his behaviours either from a dominant mother or maybe a string of relationships where he felt he could never please his partners and so he gave up. He will have a burning desire to please his partner, but will find he never can and so he gives up.

Couples that first meet in this place have a huge connection and a passionate chemistry because the reverse polarity creates a unique attraction for them. BUT, it is usually not long before one of them goes to a place of fear, because something does not feel right and they either split-up quickly, or distort themselves to cope with their relationships.

They create a relationship that is one big compromise, never really connecting with who they are, but too scared leave the relationship. In a strange way this for them becomes home and it’s likely eventually to be devoid of all passion.

Like brother and sister, but also not… She might say to friends… “ I have him well trained” and he will have lost his spark seemingly going through the motions, maybe using disrespectful humor to cope with his dominant partner.

It becomes a strange mix of a lack of respect with no desire to be apart for those who hit the “wall” and decide to stay and accept that this is good enough, better the devil you know.

Do you wish your man could be the man in your relationship and keep you safe, and love you no matter what. Or are you a man that has lost his masculine energy and you feel that whatever you do you cannot please her.

If this is you I can help…

Why do so many couples break up?

Couples all over the world are breaking up, tearing families apart, hurting those they promised to love and care for. The question is why and what can we do about it?

What is it that really makes the difference? What is it that couples are doing, or not doing to enable this massive tidal wave of destruction especially to those that have children.

What I have seen first hand that makes the difference is the following:

  • Understand why you are together and what is your purpose. Many couples have no idea and love is not a strong enough reason on it’s own.
  • Who are you really and what impact has your life had on you so far. The past will come back to bite you if you don’t deal with it.
  • How should your future life and relationship be for you? Don’t assume your partners’ is the same.
  • Understand your own critical needs and what is really important to you and why.
  • Making a plan so you share a vision for a future you can both work towards.
  • Never judge your partner, because your not qualified
  • Never making them wrong, because it could be your assumption that they are.
  • Understand how you will both deal with conflicts when they strike, because they will.

The thing is if you don’t know who you really are, then how can you communicate that to your partner. If you don’t communicate how you see your future then how will your partner know if it fits with their vision. If you don’t know what you really need to be happy then how can your partner know?

Many people tell me they have no idea what they want their future to be like. If this is the case how can they commit their undefined lives to someone else. It is a blind commitment with costly consequences if it goes wrong which a crossed figher strategy is likely to create.

One of the biggest problems I come across is the lack of team work in relationships, they agree to do all the perceived big things such as get married, buy a house have kids. But they do this with no real planning in fact for many that is the plan.

So is it little wonder why so many people become depressed after these big events, the working together comes to a grinding halt! The relationship now has no direction and it’s not long before the couple feel it. Boredom, stale, passionless, groundhog day relationships are created as the relationship stops meeting their needs, and more and more external forces starts to take the place of the relationship.

Many think that relationships are natural things out of their control and so they go with the flow of how they feel, not understanding that they have to actually do something.

The bottom line is for you to live the life you want you have to be YOU. From dating to long-term relationships.

There are more problems: Many people don’t know that their life conditions and experiences can create very different version of their true selves, selves that they designed to cope with past highly charged emotional events.

If this version of themselves worked for them at the time, they could use this as a coping strategy for other times in their lives that present similar pressures. This becomes them and can destroy their lives as they live in fear, but to them that is normal.

So those looking for a relationship who fear something in relationships will present that fearful version to those they are trying to attract and consequently will attract those who like the fearful version of them. So the relationship has started on a distortion, or individuals can become fearful when in a relationship and create the very thing they fear through distorted behaviours.

All of the above is applicable from those in search of someone to share their lives with to couples in long-term relationships.

Understand how you and relationships work is critical to lasting love, don’t leave your relationship to chance the cost is too high.

So you want a life that’s full of passion?

Here’s how to get it. Sustaining a passionate love life is all about building an unbreakable trust with your partner. Helping your partner feel like they are always the most important part of your life, helping them become secure in the knowledge that you will always be there for them.

You promise to love them forever, never judge them, or make them wrong. You’ll define your future together and help to grow your relationship towards that future whilst keeping life exciting.

Plus you’ll help them become the person they want to become in the life they want to live by understand their needs and values for life. If you promise to do all of this and you practice it consistently every day then prepare yourself for a life long love affair, because as you give and give you will discover you’ll never have to take.

…most couples do the reverse especially under pressure

Most couples don’t do this because they go to a fearful place and they start to pull love away when they have the perception that things are going wrong.

They may feel inadequate in the relationship, or maybe their fear drives them to look for problems. Or they can’t seem to understand why that spark they had in the beginning has gone.

When one or both people in the relationship goes to a place of fear the passion stops dead!

Many men come to me with the problem that their partner has removed themselves sexually from the relationship. Most of the time the woman is in a place of fear. She may not be able to see a future, maybe due to trust issues, communication break down, or she may fear not having the life or relationship she wanted, her fears will be unique to her.

Whatever her reason for being scared, putting pressure on her for sex will never work.

Plus more and more women are complaining that their men are shutting down sexually too. Again there are many reasons, but you can bet that fear is never far from their door.

Never ever pull your love away, you will always hurt yourself and your relationship if you do.

Sex is always the first thing to go when relationships hit problems, and of course life is full of them, how you deal with those problems together is what makes the difference.

The key to a passionate future together is giving and giving and giving so find out what he or she really needs and give it to them in buckets.

Biggest tip for the ladies: Your man has two big desires in life that will make him feel like a man in your relationship. The first one is not what you think – Pleasing you is his number one desire, this makes him feel like a man. So help him feel successful with you.

Biggest tip for the men: Women want attention all the time. So get present with your partner and listen to her, feel what she feels, shower her with attention, understand what she really needs. Help her feel like the most beautiful beautiful woman in the world to you. She must know she is No.1.
