Who is Tina Laws?

Tina Laws is a passionate relationship coach helping you achieve your desired relationship.

 

In over half a decade of coaching, she has helped women and couples establish their worth, own their position and experience better relationships in life and love.

What you should know

When Tina started her coaching practice in 2016, she was focused on helping domestic violence abuse survivors find healing and stability. Two years later, she had an epiphany and began coaching women on how to get the best relationships of their lives.

Changes

She is now leading women and couples to be in more fulfilling relationships. For many, fulfillment doesn’t come until after they have experienced a relationship setback. From friendship to love interest, Tina believes better relationships lead to a better life.

Success

You have to know your position in order to shift. You have to know who you are to find the right position. Once you know who you are, every relationship in your life shifts.

When Tina met her husband, she wasn’t who she is today. She learned to own her position the hard way. After years of handing over her position to another, she had to make the decision that enough was enough. She had to take back her life. Since making that decision, Tina has lived a fulfilled life as a woman, wife, mother, and loved one to many.

Through sharing her lessons and expertise, Tina incorporates her years of experience as a criminal justice professional, domestic violence advocate, and facilitator and for one and a half years, an educational therapist assisting children in an alternative behavioral program. Tina currently serves as the executive director for Bermuda’s Women’s Resource Centre. 

Tina knows all too well what it means to reposition yourself and move towards your truest desires. It was watching her daughter give birth to her grandchild in 2018 that helped her realize she wanted to help others experience more joy in their lives.

Even as a coach, she is constantly growing, realizing, “it’s always the challenging times that make us pivot.”

Tina is clear to express she is not a matchmaker. Instead, she has designed a program specific to your needs. Her ‘Own It’ program helps you to first establish a healthy relationship with yourself – because that is where it all starts. Your best relationship should always be with yourself.

“If you’re in a relationship or seeking to secure your desired partner, you need to know your place and own it. Every day is an opportunity to pivot into that person you’ve always wanted to be. Sometimes the steps are small. Sometimes you have to take steps back to move forward – either way, we have the ability to be everything we want to be.”

Tina believes strongly in telling your own story and demanding your own reality.

Her work has afforded her the opportunity to travel the world, creating and facilitating one on one consultations, domestic violence workshops, discussions, and support groups to help people make better decisions and choose better relationships.

 

“If you're in a relationship, you need to know your place and own your position"

It was during my first long-term relationship that I believed love was enough to make a relationship work. I couldn’t have been further from the truth. It was abusive and unhealthy. It was during that relationship I learned love wasn’t enough; and that I hadn’t a clue what love and relationship was all about.

August 2000 - I did, now what?

In August of 2000, I became the wife to my amazing husband, Shawn. We were only 18 months into the marriage, and I was already contemplating a divorce. Why wasn’t he understanding my feelings? Why couldn’t he read my mind? Why did I spend countless hours with an attitude? I’ll tell you why, because my expectation of marriage was to be happy, independent, and in love. To be honest, I didn’t know how to express myself without sounding angry and disgusted. It was clear that I had carried old baggage into a new relationship. It was apparent that I was expecting my relationship to work, without putting in the work. Almost immediately, I sought individual support. Yup, I acquired a therapist.

God certainly had other plans for us. From that moment on, we worked as a team to create a desirable relationship, starting with a respectful friendship.

“Seeing what caused the breakdown in my relationship has shown me what it takes to make them work. I now work with individuals and couples to show them how to exist in a relationship built on a solid foundation.”

How did I get here?

“Seeing what caused the breakdown in my relationship has shown me what it takes to make them work."

Courthouse or my dream?

Years after preparing court documents, standing before magistrates and court officials, and supervising the offending population, I made the decision to walk away from a 24hr criminal justice career, and focus solely on coaching women. Although I enjoyed learning from and working with the offending population, staff and other service providers, I was ready to reposition myself.

Without effort, restrictions, and a packed courtroom, I was now ready to help other women own their position in relationships; and get the best relationship for their life.
