Rachel Martin - Coaching for people that give a crap about their relationships
Who Am I?
I'm Rachel, and I specialise in helping people to resolve their relationship challenges, both with themselves and with other people.
Who Do I Work With?
I work with clients who are currently challenged in one or more of the following ways
- Are stuck in a pattern of codependent behaviour, or are with a partner that is.
- Are struggling to make sense of their experience with a narcissistic or emotionally abusive partner.
- Feel powerless and stuck in their current situation
- Are estranged from their family, or feel things are heading that way.
- Are dealing with heartbreak after the end of a relationship and are lacking focus, direction or purpose
- Are finding it hard to connect with a partner after the birth of a child, parenting is taking its toll on you both. As a Mum of a toddler I hear you.
- Finding it increasingly difficult to "get on" with that colleague and its impacting on your happiness and productivity in the work place.
- Toxic/one sided friendships, where the balance is out of whack.
- Know its time to walk away but dont know how to make the break.
- Struggle to communicate their true needs to the people around them, and would love to have more confidence.
- A fear of love, you want to meet someone, but are holding back and can't work through the reasons why
Why Do I Do This Work?
Honestly, its all from first hand experience. I am estranged from my father, and suffered years of emotional abuse at the hands of my step parents. I then subconsciously sought out those behaviours in romantic partners and ended up in a succession of relationships full of destructive behaviours, manipulation and psychological abuse. Through my own personal development journey and with the help and support of a brilliant Coach over a number of years I have worked through all of these barriers and found freedom on the other side. I now dedicate my working life to helping other humans find peace, meaning and harmony in their relationships. This may sound strange, but in all of the traumas I have experienced, I have found my unique set of gifts and now use these to help transform the relationships and lives of other wonderful humans.
You are currently living a life that feels flat, this relationship challenge is bringing you down, tying you in knots and generally making you miserable. You cant understand how things got to this point, and are stuck trying to work through it alone. You care about yourself enough to want more, to want better and to be happier. For too long things have been one-sided, and you are fed up of being treated in this way. Its taking its toll on you and making you feel stifled, frustrated and confused. Its time to stop simply accepting the way things are, and do the work to get them where you want, need and deserve them to be.

Areas of coaching I deal with
Before any work commences with a client, we will have a free compatibility session, this will be 45 minutes long. You can ask me anything you want to about the coaching process, and also about me as a person. There is no charge for this session, and no obligation to sign up after. Two things that are crucial to coaching is complete trust and a good rapport. Without those, the process wont reach all the levels it needs to. During this initial session you will start to feel and reap the benefits of coaching, it's a conversation that will leave you feeling inspired and ready to get going!
There are two ways in which you can work with me, depending on what feels right for you. Please be honest with yourself about what you need. If your relationships challenges are vast and complex, then the one off sessions will not be suitable for you.
One Off Sessions
If you have a specific relationship challenge then this is for you. A 90 minute one off session which also includes follow up notes from me. So if you have a colleague that you have to work with but find it so hard to connect with, or if you are heading to a family occasion and its making you break out in a cold sweat then lets get it resolved for you. You'll leave this session feeling empowered, confident and with tools and techniques to feel great in those situations you've been dreading. Investment is £165 and is payable in advance by BACS or PAYPAL
This is for those wonderful humans that feel unhappy and dissatisfied in and with their relationships in general. This is where we go deep into who you are, whats hurting your heart and ultimately a place to resolve those challenges and move forward feeling powerful, aligned with yourself and with the courage to say what you really want and feel. This is for those who want more for themselves, who know that they deserve to be treated better and truly want to change the way their lives look. If you are royally fed up with feeling less than, feeling taken advantage of and not being heard, then lets change that shall we? Its a 6 session program over 6 - 12 weeks and can be done face to face or via Skype. It also includes email support from me throughout. Investment in this program is £695 and is payable by BACS or PAYPAL.
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.
"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
"Career Coaching with Rachel has been a revelation. I have loved having someone I can talk with and not fear being judged, or made to feel like my ideas were silly. I'm now planning a new direction and am going to start retraining in September. I'm so glad I bit the bullet and decided to sign up for coaching. I'm sure I would still be sat at that desk feeling hopeless if I hadn't. As someone who has been through the process herself, Rachel is empathetic, funny and supportive, as well as being straight talking and holding me accountable. So worth it, would highly recommend to all." Jen, Horsham
"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
