Programmes offer a way to structure and commit to your time with me. Here are just some of the programmes at The Relationship Bridge:
1. HOW TO BE SINGLE SUCCESSFULLY
There’s a new movie out called ‘How To Be Single’. Channeling ‘Sex And The City’ for the Millennial generation, it shows a selection of New York types pretty much failing at being single.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Being single can be empowering. Compelling. Magical. Therapeutic. And so much more.
My How to be Single Successfully programme isn’t just about the realities of being single and the challenges of singledom. Rather it’s about embracing not being coupled up and actually thriving.
We start with changing your attitude, and rewriting the coupled-up script you’ve been force-fed by every Hollywood RomCom in the last 30 years.
Being single is not about being alone. How can it be when the greatest and longest relationship you will have in your life is with yourself?
And the thing is if you are single, to borrow from Michael Jackson, you are not alone.
The single population is growing 10 times as fast as the population, according to the Office for National Statistics. There are 16 million single men and women in the UK. More and more people are opting to be on their own – therefore the relationship with yourself becomes central to helping everything in your life function properly.
When we are alone – learning to love ourselves, trying to be committed to ourselves, working on feeling heartfelt joy daily – then both our demons and our inner diamonds break to the surface demanding to be confronted and acknowledged. When we do this work, and tend to our personal emotional gardens, everyone and everything around us benefits.
The Relationship Bridge’s foundations, the very pontoons that hold up the suspension bridge, are found in the old but wonderfully true adage that “You can’t love anyone unless and until you love yourself”.
The truth is that – counter to all our intuitions – one of the most effective ways of finding a new love is to utterly accept that being single can be quite wonderful.
Because when you really love yourself, and you are a successful single, you will meet someone equally at home and at peace with themselves. Bingo!
Quite why this isn’t more commonly espoused is a mystery to me – like the Law of Attraction it’s one of those immutable universal truths.
When you’re really comfortable flying solo, living your own dreams and making your own choices – you suddenly take on a whole new level of attractiveness – there’s a confidence and an aura that the happy singleton exudes.
My How to be Single Successfully programme is typically 6 sessions. Some people prefer to take longer as it’s such a fundamental change. But I’d love to work with you on becoming a successful singleton. Because you when you really fall in love with yourself, you’re far more likely to find someone else.
2. I’LL BE YOUR BREAK-UP BUDDY!
Breaking up is so very hard to do, said that old song, and it was/is so very true. We are culturally hardwired to be in a couple, our partner becomes our daily reality, and so surviving a relationship break-up is beyond traumatic.
If you got dumped (sorry to be brutal), your whole self-esteem feels in the dumpster.
If you forced the break, if you ended it, it’s also only human to feel spectacularly rubbish, unless your partner was an absolute pariah.
Whichever route, you can hire me as Your Break-Up Buddy: a supportive, motivational cheerleader, genie and mentor who’ll make you learn to love yourself again, and get rid of that numbing pain.
I’ll help you through the trauma, and nudge you towards a point where you can start celebrating life again. It’s not an overnight process, but not having to face things on your own will speed things up no end.
I’ll work with you over a period of weeks to show how to go from heartbreak to Hearthealed in a quicker, more effective way.
A relationship break-up is often the most disruptive event in our lives causing major areas in our life to be affected in what can be a destructive way.
- Physical health
- Emotional health
- Mental Health
- Family and friend relationships
The whole essence of The Relationship Bridge is about learning to love yourself, and this same path is the way to overcome heartbreak. I’ll lead you to a healthier happier you – allowing you to move from heartbreak to Heart-Healed and a better future that ever before.)
I’ll also help you avoid familiar post-breakup syndromes like The Rebound, where you repeat the previous relationship with someone similar too soon. Or even worse, Cliff-Jumping, where you move in with a new partner and commit totally. Ultimately this just leads to a repetion of the break-up pain and it’s a big mistake I can help you avoid.
Each person is different, but I’d recommend 7 sessions over a 4 week period. Over this period I’ll be there for you, an emotional wingwoman and energy pixie mitigating the upset of breakup and urging you on to new things, healing all the way.
Over the 7-session process, which can be face-to-face, on the phone or Skype, you can also enjoy a daily pre-agreed level of WhatsApp encouragement.
Don’t suffer the pain of break up. Come out the other end better than ever before. Invest in the future. Hire Chrysa as your Break-Up Buddy.
3. SELF-RELATIONSHIP REBOOT!
Self-Relationship Reboot features seven 55-minute high-energy sessions.
I designed it for people who feel they’ve come up against a brick wall. In love, maybe it’s always going for the same, unhealthy ‘type’ (the married man, the karma vacuum, the damsel in distress – we’ve met them all). In career, perhaps it’s never breaking through that limiting ceiling you’ve erected over yourself. In health, it can be sabotaging clean living with toxic food & drink choices. In money, it can be never creating those reserves that help build a reserve of joy. Maybe, it’s all, some or none of these, but this Reboot programme will soon sort you out!
It’s a boot camp for your soul, a short, sharp shock that’ll completely reinvigorate your life!
In session one, we review your life to date, and hear about your goals and dreams.
In sessions two, three and four, we look at every aspect of your life – work, food, friends, family, likes, dislikes, world view, the lot! – and examine what we need to do to make you THE BEST YOU. It’s called ‘Emotional Enjoyneering’ and I guarantee you will love it!
And then we’re ready for lessons five, six and seven, during which time you get out into the world with you as your Authentic Self with me as your co-pilot and mentor.
Over the 7-session process, you can enjoy a pre-agreed level of additional Skype, phone and WhatsApp access, so you don’t feel alone in your journey across the bridge.
4. JOY! IS A WALK IN THE PARK:
A unique introduction to life coaching.
If you’ve never sat down before a coach, therapist or counsellor before, the first session can be very daunting. So why not try this discounted introductory open-air session in London to begin the journey of self-discovery and towards the best you!
Subject to weather permitting, it’s a one hour and fifteen minute walk in Battersea Park along the riverbank between Chelsea Bridge and Prince Albert Bridge (featured on my home page and in my logo) – and then back again.
It’s 2.5 miles where you can unload your goals and dreams, let the past go, and take in the river, the characters that walk by, the sky, the nature, the Peace Pagoda, and most of all the potential of the future.
If you stride along rather than meander, we’ll have time for a half-time coffee in the marvellous Prince Albert pub. If you meander, I may even bring a magical favourite Retriever that loves a good meander.
Best of all, you’ll have begun the process of crossing The Relationship Bridge.
5. FAMILY BREAKDOWN/PERSONAL TRANSITION
A family falling apart is an incredibly difficult scenario to deal with; who do you turn to?
Well, however challenging your separation or divorce, and however your ‘Ex’ is behaving, I can really help you.
Where children are involved, it’s an emotional tightrope. Where The Courts are involved, it is terrifyingly unpredictable.
I’ve been there, I understand, and I can show the you way forward, even how to thrive through the process.
‘I’ve been there’ sounds like a platitude, but in my case it’s very true.
The quality of the relationship with yourself – not with your ex or your children or your friends – will be the single most important element in getting through this.
And when you do get to the other side of the bridge, and finally ‘uncoupled’ – to use Gwynneth Paltrow’s expression – I can even show you how to really make it a single parent, and avoid all the pitfalls.
I’m not pretending it’s not hard work. It is. But together we can help you make a successful personal transition.
For this process, we can build a bespoke programme that suits you. But as a starter I can offer seven 55-min sessions for the price of six. In addition you can enjoy a pre-agreed level of additional Skype, phone and WhatsApp access, so you don’t feel alone on the way.
