Empowering you to build and sustain relationships in the 21st Century

Gabriel provides a supportive and empowering solution for men and women, especially in mid life to form and sustain the life long relationships that they seek. We are a personal & professional coaching service to help people to be effective in the modern world of relationships. We are not a dating, introduction or matchmaking service, and are unrelated to the “pick up community”


One to one coaching

Coaching is regarded as a process that aims to get someone from where they are to where they want to be and is frequently carried out via structured one to one conversations. Many of the principles of coaching lie in the psychology of Carl Rogers and Gerard Egan, and cross over from the world of sport too. A well-referenced resource is “The Inner Game of Tennis” by Timothy Gallwey – the revolutionary thinking that uses humanistic psychology to suggest “one gets out of your own way to let your best game emerge” – in life, as in sport. As a relationship coach, Steve Potiphar, director at Gabriel By Your Side, continues to maintain continuous professional development to evolve thinking and practices not as a “purist” and blends approaches to suit the uniqueness of the situation he finds himself in with male and female clients. Clients will find him as a person that is not afraid to experiment and to bring insights gained from his own relationship experiences.

Coaching has a rich and established pedigree utilising the skills of listening, questioning, being supportive but challenging and helping individuals clarify their thoughts. Coaching can help move individuals from outside their comfort zone to fully realise their potential and provoke change in the context of their personal relationships. As a coach, Steve takes time to focus on the thoughts and feelings of the individual client, with an investment made in understanding and exploring. Relationship coaching is not about providing a standard list of advice to improve an individual’s relationships but it is about finding the right approach for each individual to achieve what they desire. This might involve building methodology and skills in order to realise goals.

With the availability of online tools nowadays, we can provide one to one coaching to you anywhere in the world using video at times that are convenient to you. Typically sessions last for between 45 - 60 minutes.

Online profile makeover

Gabriel By Your Side can work with men and women in a wide variety of ways to help you form, develop and maintain the kind of relationship that you seek.

However, in the era of online dating, the first impression often created by an individual will be their online profile. We can offer you the expertise to makeover your profile both in terms of written and photographic content to send the messages that you really want to deliver to potential dates, and both improve your outcomes and connect with individuals that you want to, ensuring that you maintain control over those first impressions, and engage with the kind of people that you wish to.

Gabriel’s Dating Bootcamp

Gabriel’s Dating Bootcamp is a month long programme to support your dating venture, whether you’re new to online dating, are returning to it or have given up on it all together and are trying “real life” dating for a change. We can offer advice shared to the online community in our private Facebook Group, support you before and after dates, provide tips while you search and chat with potential dates and will bring other contributors into the community during the Bootcamp to help your relationship journey.

The goal is to make your dating experiences more enjoyable and ultimately more successful. Many people find sharing and working with a like minded group extremely helpful and we will facilitate your journey.

if you’ve not had a profile makeover then this is included in the investment for this programme and includes a 30 minute one to one video call to capture your story to create your new online dating profile.

Coaching and well-being retreats

A programme of one to one coaching will often lie at the heart of how you work with Gabriel By Your Side which enables us to support you wherever you are in the world through conversations at times that suit you by video connection.

However, we understand that sometimes people like to work with like minded individuals to explore their relationship challenges and share the journey. It is with that in mind that a number of exclusive relatiionship well being retreats are available through the year at comfortable resorts in locations in Europe. The programme which will run over several days will include both group and one to one coaching activities as well as a parallel programme of wellbeing activities to support and enhance the relationship building methodology and skills.
