The Short Version: Based in London, Olga Frankow is a relationship coach with a passion for self-development. She prompts singles and couples to reassess themselves and their relationships, and then set goals to get their lives in order. She described her coaching style as pushy, but many of her clients characterize her as a caring listener with deep insights on what makes love last. She gives her clients personalized advice in two-hour sessions over Skype or in person, and she makes herself available to clients via text and email in between sessions. She’s also written several ebooks about healthy relationship dynamics and proactive dating habits to help readers help themselves. Whether you’re a single woman recovering from a breakup or a couple struggling to recapture the romance, you can benefit from Olga’s positive outlook and pragmatic guidance on matters close to the heart.
Olga Frankow is a newcomer to the dating industry, but she’s already had an impact on dozens of lives as a London-based relationship coach. Her compassionate point of view uplifts singles and couples across Europe, and many people have turned to her for help navigating the dating scene and relationship dynamics.
In many cases, she draws upon her experience overcoming relationship obstacles to show people what’s possible. Over a decade ago, Olga was in a long-term relationship that simply wasn’t working. The painful and inevitable breakup left her wondering what went wrong and how she could do better next time.
Olga learned from her failed relationship, and she began working on herself to ensure her next relationship would go the distance. And it did. She and her husband, Rafael, have been together for nine years now. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing, she said, but their commitment to learning and growing together has seen them through all challenges.
“I had to learn to meet his needs and understand his opinions,” she said. “What drove me to pursue self-development and eventually become a professional coach was my husband and our relationship.”
Olga began giving women relationship advice as a hobby, and then she made a name for herself writing self-help ebooks and running relationship coaching sessions for singles and couples. Now relationship coaching is her full-time career, and she couldn’t be happier to have the chance to help people find fulfillment in their love lives.
At her core, Olga believes there’s always room for improvement, so she pushes her clients to explore the weaknesses within themselves and their relationships. She runs in-depth coaching sessions that involve two hours of honest conversation and emotional problem solving. You can start with a free consultation, after which you can sign up for a personalized coaching program lasting anywhere from three to six months.
Olga said she typically sees her clients twice a month, either over Skype or in person, but she’s flexible to their schedules. As a working woman, she understands that career-oriented people have time restraints, so she makes herself available to her clients in between sessions via email and text. She will even travel to meet clients at their homes in London if need be. “Sometimes it’s easier for people to open up when they’re at home,” she said.
A majority of Olga’s clients are European professionals in their 30s. The singles who enroll with her are typically proactive women who have been in failed relationships and want to know what they’re doing wrong. They’re often successful in their careers (many work in the financial sector), but they haven’t learned how to maintain healthy relationships.
Once she has taken on a client, Olga designs a specific coaching package to fit the person’s needs and issues. Her objective is to help people understand themselves better and use that understanding to fix their bad dating habits.
The couples who see Olga often start off going to sessions together, but then they schedule follow-up sessions separately so they can work on or discuss individual issues. “I look at the needs of the relationship,” Olga said. “They need to know how to be open, show vulnerability, communicate, and learn to understand each other. I take shame and replace it with trust and respect.”
Olga has written and published a few self-help ebooks so far, and many readers appreciate her straightforward approach to love and relationships.
“Stop Rushing, Start Loving” is about how proper time management can help couples grow closer instead of drifting apart. By establishing loving daily rituals, couples can reinforce their bonds every day. “You can rebuild your trust and attraction to one another,” she said, “if you create a trusting space for each other.”
Olga’s latest project, “Five Ways to Avoid Your Past Mistakes in Romantic Relationships,” offers a step-by-step guidebook on how to learn from the dating mistakes of the past and create better relationships in the future. She told us that self-analysis is key to self-improvement, and that’s what she focuses on in her writing.
Her blog offers yet another dating resource for people seeking inspiration or advice. The topics range from online dating to relationship goals, but Olga always brings her own brand of positivity to every subject matter she tackles.
“Do not stop believing in love. You deserve to be in a healthy, happy relationship,” she wrote in a January 2018 post. “Remember, it is never too late to give yourself a second chance.”
In a short period of time, Olga has collected quite a few success stories from clients who improved their love lives within a few months of coaching. The testimonials on her website offer a glimpse of the transformational work she does with singles and couples.
“Olga is skilled in listening and helping you to look at yourself and your situation,” said Helen, a former client. “She helped me to focus on me and not my relationship with my partner or children, revaluing myself and making relationship issues so much easier to talk about and find resolutions.”
Ana also cited Olga’s listening skills as the top reason people should turn to this relationship coach. “Olga is a very good listener,” Ana said. “Her follow-up questions were spot-on.”
“She is very trustworthy, and she creates a safe environment to talk and discuss deeper thoughts and feelings.” — Maria, one of Olga’s clients
Olga told us the story of one unmarried 40-year-old woman who had never let men get close to her. After a few coaching sessions, the woman realized her controlling attitude had stopped men from getting to know her. “She’s in a much better place emotionally now,” Olga said. “She’s much more confident than she was before that she’ll find the relationship she’s looking for.”
Maria, a designer who struggled with anxiety and stress, gushed, “I would totally recommend Olga! She has been a delight throughout our sessions! From the first moment, she made me feel very comfortable, which was very important in order for me to share my experiences and start an honest effort to change my life.”
After years of disappointment, uncertainty, and introspection, Olga grew as a person and gained the skills she needed to make her personal relationships flourish. She is now happily married, and she hopes to teach other couples to replicate her success by developing healthy communication skills and making an effort to create romance.
In her private coaching practice, Olga gives her clients the tools to strengthen their relationships so they last for years to come. Singles and couples take her life lessons to heart and use her methods to grow their understanding of themselves and their capacity to show love.
“It’s all about your vision for life,” she said. “We work on the vision and come up with a plan to attract the results you want.”
