Online Dating Coaching

Dating Coaching

Bettina’s online dating coaching service helps beginners – men and women – to get into the swing of things plus those struggling unsuccessfully with the dating process to revamp their profiles and increase their chances. It all started when friends turned to her for help writing their profiles. With over forty years as a journalist and her background in clinical psychology, she had no problem working out how to make them stand out from the crowd.

But her coaching is not just for women – men need advice too! Judging from the profiles online many males could really do with some help writing appealing profiles. If you have followed Bettina’s career, you will know that she is very understanding of men and their foibles. Here’s your chance to have someone on your side teaching you how to both attract and handle the fairer sex.

It’s now over four years since Bettina has been working as an online dating coach. Most of her clients now use her services not just to help with their profiles but to guide them through the whole online dating process, provide support and strategies for increasing their success.

To find out more further details how the online dating coaching works, please see the online dating coaching page. If you are interested in this service, and would like a FREE phone call with Bettina to discuss what she can offer, please contact Bettina at to set up a phone appointment. You do not need to provide your proper name – just give a first name and phone number, and suitable times for her to call. She’ll email you to arrange a time for a chat. All conversations are totally confidential. You can also seek her advice purely using email, if you prefer.
