Elizabeth Roebuck-Jones – about me?
I am a relationships therapist and I empower women to make educated relationship choices about who they are, what they want and who they want to spend their lives with, rather than change for their partner.
Women who work with me often struggle with:
- Setting their relationship boundaries – their no line
- Understanding whether their relationship is abusive.
- Finding their Prince Charming who is just right for them.
I connect with women through Facebook in my group Relationships with Dating Advice for Women where you can ask me questions and discuss topics important to you and your relationship. I write books run workshops and have a Membership Site and secret Facebook Group where you can work with me more closely.
What is my vision for you? – A fairy tale for an assertive woman.
Once upon a time, in a land far away, a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her castle.
The frog hopped into the princess’s lap and said:
‘Elegant lady, I was once a handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon me and turned me into a frog. One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper, young prince that I am. Then, my sweet, we can marry and set up housekeeping in yon castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes and bear my children. And forever feel grateful and happy doing so.’
That night, on a repast of sautéed toad’s legs served in a lightly seasoned, white cream sauce, the princess chuckled to herself and thought:
‘I don’t think so; I can recognise a toad when I see one.
Who is Elizabeth really?
When I was 13 years old my stepfather wrote me a letter, and even now thirty eight years later this letter makes me cry. In this letter he wanted me to explain why he was marrying my mum and he wanted me to understand about love. In this letter he gave me some advice about men.
A letter from my Dad
My little Elizabeth, when you are older, and this will not be too many years hence, you will probably kiss and be kissed by many toads. However, one fortunate day, you may kiss a frog who will turn into your handsome prince. Maybe if your mother gives me enough kisses I can turn into a handsome prince; however, I may only ever be a toad.
In my life I was fortunate enough to find my handsome prince very young. However, in my journey to become a psychologist my work has lead me to want to inspire women. I have had the privilege of working with women for over 13 years, both for Relate in England and Relationships Australia, who have shared their stories with me. I teach not just from what these women have taught me and knowledge I have gained through study, but from my personal experience. I have lived my life in a long term relationship with all its challenges, as well as watched my mum and all of the mistakes she made along the way to finding her handsome prince.
