Rachel Martin - Estrangement Coach for women separated from their parents.
About My Work
Are you one of the 5,000,000 adults in the UK that are estranged from a parent/parents?
If so, I hope that number helps you to see that you aren't on your own, although it can feel like a lonely place to be. I'm glad that you have found me here, as its my aim by 2030 to have helped 50,000 women turn their painful experience of estrangement into power, passion & purpose.
The thing about estrangement is it leaves a mark on you, one that can't be seen but is always there. it will inform so much of who you are and what you do. It'll impact on how you are showing up in the world, what you believe is possible for yourself, and how you express love and communicate.
Its entirely possible to turn that around, and thats where I come in.
I have spent many years with my head in personal development books, on courses, retraining, and ultimately unpicking all those painful knots to understand what really happened, and to choose how I want that experience to appear in my life. It doesn't define me or control me, and it doesn't need to do that to you any longer either.
Estranged people typically feel a complete lack of confidence, of self belief and belonging, and play a very fine role of chameleon as they try to fit in somewhere, anywhere. Which gets exhausting the longer you do it. This work allows you to come home to yourself. You get to be YOU, not what someone else made you think you were, but who you actually want to be. Isn't that a beautiful thing?

Areas of coaching I deal with
Before we start
All potential clients are offered a free 35 minute clarity call so that together we can get clear on your challenges and also see if we are a good fit for each other. At the end of the call we will discuss the possibility of working together, and will only go ahead if everything feels good.
No two people experience estrangement in the same way, and as a result of that, the techniques I use are bespoke with each individual client in mind. This is my specialist area of knowledge & expertise and I only work with a small number of clients at a time.
My 1:1 program consists of 8 x 1 hour sessions, plus email support throughout. Session by session we unpick your story, how your experience is impacting different areas of your life, and ultimately how to reconcile with your story, and begin writing a powerful new one which is right for you and your heart.
The program is 8-16 weeks long depending on if you would like weekly or fortnightly sessions (or a mixture of the two).
Your investment in this program is £880, and payment plans are available. This can be discussed during or clarity call.
If you are ready to stop letting this narrative dictate your life, if you want to heal, and to come back to yourself, then get in touch today.
My clients experience is the most important thing to me, and that's why I only work with a small number at a time. This enables me to be fully present for the women I work with, so that their experience is as meaningful and impactful as possible.
"The gift of space to be open, share my dreams of time & connection and to rattle on about all and sundry whilst keeping accountable to our sessions has been incredible. Not as special as Rachel's kind, reflective and gentle questions to help dig that little deeper and gain the clarity that I am searching for. If you have hopes and dreams for relationships with yourself and those in your life, then I can highly recommend this very special individual. Rachel shares her humour, sensitivity and wisdom in her own beautiful blend. You wont regret reaching out to her" Sarah, Horsham.
"What a joyful experience! Coaching has well and truly impacted on me and my life in a huge way. The work has been both fascinating and eye opening. Just 4 months ago I felt so stuck, so hemmed in and I knew I had to change something. I was nervous about digging about in my past, but it was such a cathartic and empowering experience. Now I know that the life I am living is truly mine. I know my own voice, and I am clear on where I am headed. Just brilliant" Helen, Basingstoke
"Coaching with Rachel changed so much in my life, it enabled me to see that the story I was living by wasn’t true and was only holding me back. Through working with Rachel for a few months I was able to make sense of my past and how it was impacting me in the present. Which has left me free to really embrace the future with a new sense of confidence and clarity. I’m so glad I went through this process with her!" Emma, Bournemouth
