Lila Turner is uproariously funny and wise as she speaks with us about her incredible work helping singles who have given up hope on finding love.
Equipped with the knowledge of the one thing that holds people back - their own state of mind - she is able to help her clients flip their perspective and see it is not the people they're dating that are keeping them from finding a lasting relationship, but rather it's how they are approaching dating.
Lila helps her clients to become more aware of their feelings and state of mind. So while historically they may have shown up to dates feeling insecure with a lot on their mind, they can now show up feeling at ease and present to the person in front of them. This tends to completely shift their results in dating from frustration to fun and often to forming lasting partnerships.
Lila has a beautiful way of sharing this understanding using simple and yet profound metaphors. She likens showing up feeling insecure to a date to applying hand cream while wearing latex gloves. We're only able to connect when the gloves come off and we allow ourselves to be vulnerable. In fact, as Angus points out, vulnerability is sexy.
