Are you a single man or woman?
Have you brought up your children by yourself and they are now doing their own thing?
Are you pleased with the way you have balanced being a single parent alongside a successful career/job?
Are you curious about dating and wondering whether the time is right for you start 'finding' your ideal partner?
Little wary about forming a new relationship after years of being single?
If you've answered 'yes' to at least 3 of these questions then you've come to the right place.
I provide a bespoke one to one coaching service for single men and women like you, keen to get back into the dating scene but not quite sure where to start.
And yes I juggled with my career and being a single parent. I hid behind those roles as manager, mother, sister, friend, youth leader etc. I kept myself busy.
After failed relationships I didn't want to get hurt again. So I created more masks to hide behind!
It was through my relationship coaching study I identified the blocks that were preventing me from building more fulfilling relationships and took action. I accepted that if I didn't learn to love myself unconditionally how on earth could anyone love me? But first I had to discover who I really was - without the masks! I had to review my values, beliefs and personal boundaries. I had to state clearly what I really wanted from a relationship.
If some of the above resonates with you, and you want to get 'relationship ready' then let's have a chat to see how we could work together.
Once a month I deliver interactive relationship workshops for men and women of all ages and backgrounds. Here they learn more about themselves and how to build and maintain strong connections with others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been coaching formally now for over 5 years (20 years informally in various HR roles ) and during this time I have had the pleasure to work with a diverse group of individuals on a range of life changing issues, including teenagers with behavioural/emotional challenges. It's so great to be doing something I really want to do and make substantial changes in people's lives along the way.
Here's a bit more about me.
I am a fully qualified Life coach, Master Coach Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner and Time Line Therapist, trainer/facilitator and author.
I hold various other people-focused certificates including relationship psychology, Equality and Diversity, counselling and Management etc. Qualifications are great as these demonstrate an understanding of the subject matter but to me it's all about getting relevant and quick results for my clients.
So let me give you a taste of what to expect .
By the end of the very first session you will get a greater insight into what is not working as well as you'll like it to be in your life and a strong desire to make change. Through sensitive, yet practical questioning we will dig deep to establish your blocks, the impact these are having of your life and the knock on effect of not taking action. This will involve looking at your life as a whole and seeing which areas you are most satisfied with and which area or areas require a little attention.
Don't just take my word. Here's a couple of testimonials.
'I worked with Ivona after a lot of big, personal changes in my life including separation from a partner and being made redundant not long after. I have been an advocate of personal development for about two years prior to these changes, so in theory should have been well equipped to handle the 'situations' I had been presented with. I had done well but it wasn't until taking on Ivona as a coach that I was really able to start moving forward and identifying and implementing practical steps to start moving my career, and subsequently my life forward.'

'I had a session with Ivona Gordon a few weeks ago and I can only describe those 45 minutes as magical.
I don't know how she does it, but Ivona has the power or gift to ask the right questions in such a wise, peaceful manner that you really get to think about yourself. After the session, I felt like transformed and I could understand some situations that had happened to me in my past relationships.
I truly and warmly recommend Ivona to anyone wishing to move on with their life and improve it.' Sam

As an NLP practitioner I naturally use a full range of communication skills, tools and interventions to support my clients whilst working with them on a one to one basis. However, I also work with individuals who would like to address specific blocks in their lives, such as overcoming negative beliefs that maybe preventing them from living a more fulfilling life such as getting their 'dream' job or even going out and interacting with other people. Some clients want to get themselves into the 'right' mindset for a forthcoming interview or presentation and just need a little support in this area. Time and a sense or urgency tend to be the key drivers for change here. Individuals falling into this category want to address and overcome the issue immediately. With your permission, and only with your permission and your 100% commitment that you want change, I will use an appropriate NLP tool to support you in addressing your specific challenge.
If any of the above resonates with you then please get in touch to arrange an initial 20 minute consultation.
