Dr Lori Bisbey (BS,MA,Other,PhD)

Relationship Coach

As a psychologist, coach and consultant, I have always had a variety of interests.  I have spent a large part of my career working with people to help find, improve, mend and end their intimate relationships.   During the last 15 years I have been heavily involved with psychological assessments for Family Court, divorce mediation, relationship counselling, family and child therapy. 

Most recently, I have become a Whole Life Certified Coach.  I love the dynamic focus from the present to the future and particularly enjoy helping people create intimate relationships with others that are fulfilling, authentic, exciting and enduring as well as helping people who live in spite of chronic illness create full vibrant lives.

Having experienced trauma as a young woman, I spent many of my clinical and research hours working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and some of the other problems that can arise after traumatic events.  It is one of my convictions that my work as a coach or a therapist is grounded in the authentic relationship that develops between myself and those I am facilitating in the sessions.  I believe that if I am going to use techniques or particular methods to work with someone, I should experience these techniques myself and also that a good coach or therapist, does her own personal work.   I began my personal development work when I was a teenager and I continue it today.  Alongside my more conventional work experience, I studied a number of different spiritual theories and methods of work, creative means of therapy (including use of music, movement and play) and all of these have become tools in my kit that I use in my work with clients.

I believe that sexuality is a moveable feast; that we grow and change over our lifespans if we are given the acceptance and the encouragement to do so.   The most successful, fulfilling and enduring relationships are those in which all parties are authentic, communicate  and pursue growth.  I am passionate about helping people discover their authentic sexual selves, identify the relationships that will work best for them and go out into the world to create these relationships.

Wiley and Sons published a book I co-authored in 1998 on a method of treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and I also co-authored a book on Rites of Passage in 2002.  


Personally, I am polyamorous and have one son. I live in spite of systemic lupus and a variety of other autoimmune diseases.  I am US born and educated and have lived in the UK for the past 23 years.  I travel back and forth between the UK and the US frequently.  I also work in Europe regularly.   My greatest pleasures apart from my work are spending time with people I love, reading, writing, travel, music (making it and listening to it), cooking and relaxing with my dogs.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

I found it hard to find my social niche as I was growing up.  When I became aware that I was attracted to women as well as men, there were few people I could talk to.  I saw no models in the media or amongst the people in my world.  In my sophmore year of university, I experienced a major trauma that caused me to develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  I entered therapy with a Jungian analyst who created the most amazing safe space for me to heal and to grow.  It was at that point I decided to become a helping professional.  Every child deserves a safe emotional, physical and spiritual space in which to grow.   As a helping professional, I have spent my career striving to create these spaces for children and for adults.
