Become friends with the most important person in the world...you

When you become friends with yourself, your whole life changes.

learn how to become your own best friend

Discover how to change the most important relationship in your life: the relationship you have with you.

You know it well – that critical voice inside your head that talks to you all day. Usually, the things it is saying are not the things you need to be hearing – you're not enough, and you need to be more – richer, thinner, more successful, more beautiful... This voice is not helpful. It doesn't make you feel better. It makes you feel small and scared and often unable to cope. 

Imagine if you could turn that voice around. What would your life be like if that voice went from being your biggest critic and became your on-call cheerleader? It's totally possible. I know. I did it! 

In How to Become Friends with Yourself,  I'll teach the exact strategies I used to turn that voice in my head around from my worst enemy into my best friend.  I will show you simple, yet powerful ways to get to know yourself and start treating yourself with kindness and compassion so that you can decrease the stress and anxiety you are unwittingly adding to your daily life. You deserve to treat yourself the way you would treat your own best friend. 

Join me for teachings, simple daily practices, and an amazing and supportive community to show you how to become your own greatest ally. Watch this video to learn more about this life-changing opportunity:

What if you truly loved yourself?
How would your life be different?

How to Become Friends with Yourself  is a course designed to help you tap into the strength and confidence within yourself – so that you can wake up every morning and love the person that you are. Through the 28 days of the course, you'll take powerful steps to learn how to settle that negative voice in your head and start to learn to love yourself as you are.   

I will teach you the exact techniques I used in my own journey, transforming my life from a 19-year-old full of despair and depression to living a life where I love myself truly. 

Here’s what you’ll discover:

week 1

The Culture of Not Loving Ourselves

In this first week, you'll explore how we are conditioned as a culture to struggle with loving ourselves. I'll explain why this cultural conditioning exists and how to start to combat its subtle effect on your life. 


Your Relationship with You

In the second week, you'll have a clear understanding of the relationship you have with yourself – and where you inadvertently sabotage your happiness. You'll start to write a new story for your life to bypass the emotional land mines you've been stepping on for most of your life.

week 3

Working with Your Inner Critic

In the third week, you'll get up close and personal with your inner critic to understand why it's there and when it got there – with simple tools to change its voice from tearing you down to build you up. You will learn to change that voice in your mind. Forever. 


The Love Contract

In this week, we look at how our self-love, or lack of it, affects the way that others treat us. We explore how we have been setting ourselves up, through our  own Love Contract, to put our true self last since we were young.  By this time, many people already see significant changes, so this week, you'll discover how to work with these techniques on an ongoing basis. 

"I'll show you how to transform that voice in your mind from being your enemy to become your best friend." 


How The World Appears Is Up To You

Most of us don't realise that whether you are happy or unhappy depends on you. You can master your own happiness levels. When you become friends with yourself, the way that you show up in the world completely changes. When that changes, so does your whole world. This is a foundation skill to learn to change your life.

The Great News

It's easy to think that if circumstances and other people change, your life will get better. The great news is that you don't need to wait for that. When you start with you, you see that changing your relationship with yourself changes your whole life. 

Imagine Have Your Own Best Advisor On Call All Day

Life is hard at the best of times. We are facing obstacles and difficulties daily that leave us feeling stressed and exhausted. When you become friends with yourself, you will find the ability to tap into your natural wisdom that will enable you to make smarter and more self-loving choices about your life. 

I've been there

I know what it's like not to love myself. Everything that I teach in this course is the exact same tools I used to transform my relationship with myself. This has been an integral part of my ability to profoundly and permanently increase my happiness levels.

Hi, I’m Monique Rhodes.

When I was 19, I was in quite a messy place of despair. I sat down one day and thought through what I wanted with my life. The word I came out with was "extraordinary." I had no idea how I was going to achieve that. Trust me, at that time, my life was the furthest from extraordinary that you can imagine. 

I'd had to leave home two years earlier at 17. I was working to support myself to study at university (which I was failing at). I was stretched to my limits living in a dingy, cold room in a flat. Some days I wasn't even able to afford to eat. One of my close friends died that year, and I was in a state of shock and grief. On top of that, there is little doubt that I was suffering from depression. It was the lowest point of my life. 

The declaration of my desire for an extraordinary life was possibly one of the most important statements I made. It was, on many levels, a bold thing to ask for. However, despite incredible obstacles, I have managed achieved it. 

In a bid to turn my life around, from one of depression to one that is extraordinary, I travelled the world and learnt with some of the most well-known teachers of our time. I studied different cultures and why some people were happy, and others struggled. I started applying what I was learning to my own life.

It is these techniques and teachings that I bring to you. 

Come and join me in How to Become Friends with Yourself. It will change your life like it changed mine.
