Kevin Thibodeaux 

Kevin Thibodeaux, warmly known as Coach Kev, is a talented Dating & Relationship Coach and the owner of From Casual to Serious. Kevin started his career as a Business Change Consultant and Entrepreneur. Since he wanted to achieve professional and financial stability, he was fully immersed in the corporate world. 

Kevin felt the need to reach financial and professional success before focusing on finding a partner. As such, he didn’t put much time or effort into dating and relationships. Recognizing that relationships are about emotional maturity, communication, conflict resolution, trust, love, and many other aspects, he felt that he fell short in those areas. There was a lot of personal growth that he needed to do outside of his career. Otherwise, his dating life would remain the same. So, he started to work with therapists, coaches, mentors, friends and family to further his personal development. Through this journey, he found his true passion, which is to help individuals envision their ideal romantic futures and achieve them. 

Kevin developed the unique Date Smarter methodology of discovery, awareness, and choice, which empowers clients to create and lead more fulfilling lives. His approach is focused on helping clients discover, clarify, and align with their true desires, encouraging self-discovery, providing effective solutions and strategies, and holding them accountable. As someone who’s actively dating, Kevin has first-hand insight and understands the challenges along with the different technologies involved, which allows him to offer invaluable coaching.

Shan Merchant

“Couples therapy is the hardest type of therapy to be in,” says Shan Merchant, UK-based Imago couples therapist and dating coach. “In individual therapy you can paint me a one-sided picture of your relationship. When I have you and your partner in front of me doing the Imago practices, I see the 3-dimensional, living sculpture. I see every angle. It’s raw. It’s real. It hurts, and it heals.”

Every day in her couples practice, Shan sees despair, loneliness, contempt and deeply entrenched patterns playing out between partners who were once drunk on love for one another. “When couples come to me it’s usually after an affair, or after years mired in what we call the ‘Power Struggle’ stage of your relationship.” 

Shan helps couples to realize the Power Struggle is inevitable in every relationship – that this kind of crisis is actually the doorway to Real Love. “But most couples out there don’t dare open the door. I get it! It’s scary and it takes courage. The reward is true intimacy and connection.” 

Shan, originally from New Zealand, was inspired to become a certified Imago couples therapist after rescuing her own relationship with partner Josephine from a particularly gnarly Power Struggle. She says “The couples who become an unstoppable team again are the ones who decide they’ll do whatever it takes.” 

With a Master’s degree in Psychology, Shan leverages her wealth of experience and knowledge as a therapist to help people in all types of relationships, including LGBTQ+, Polyamorous and Neurodiverse.
