Bettina Arndt

It was sex that made Bettina Arndt famous. One of Australia's first sex therapists, she spent her early career talking and writing about this fascinating topic before moving on to broader social issues. She's still out there, speaking to audiences all over Australia and appearing regularly on television and radio.

But her main day job is now online dating coaching, helping newcomers get started and people who are struggling to increase their success rate. Bettina's warm approachable style and immense experience with relationships – and over 40 years as a writer - makes her uniquely equipped for this new role.

Using her own experience as a successful online dater, she's perfected a unique profile creation process designed to showcase her clients. She provides ongoing support and strategies designed to help singles make this new world work for them.

"Bettina gave me confidence to get out there and learn how to manage the intricacies of online dating . I followed her advice and as clichéd as it sounds, I finally found the man of my dreams," Susie, 50.
