The Scoop: Psychologist Madeleine Mason Roantree trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, applied positive psychology, and psychological therapies and has over 15 years of experience working in mental health and psychology. While earning her masters and current PhD, Madeleine studied romantic relationships, social intelligence, and resilience — all of which come into play in the dating world. She brought her insights to PassionSmiths, a dating coaching business based in London, inspiring singles to take on dating with foresight and forbearance. Now she is joining an international matchmaking firm called The Vida Consultancy to work on a 360 assessment for singles to help them find love. Madeleine will lead the relationship and coaching division at Vida and bolster its services with psychological principles and sound judgment.

Dating psychologist Madeleine Mason Roantree can help daters take an introspective look at their lives.

Over the years, Madeleine has collected many testimonials from people who have praised her coaching style and insights.

“Madeleine manages to break down common problems in a way that is direct, succinct, and easy to follow,” said Tim, a 35-year-old client who took three seminars in 2014. “She addresses issues in a fashion that stays memorable, so for me the impact wasn’t just for a few weeks afterward, but much longer — possibly lifelong.”

Now, The Vida Consultancy, an international matchmaking company, will be drawing from Madeleine’s expertise and integrating her coaching skills into the firm. Madeleine will head up a revolutionary coaching division that will incorporate the techniques that have been so successful for her team of psychotherapists. Thanks to this expansion, the matchmaking company will have the capacity to support singles around the world with comprehensive services designed to get results.

“All people have personal barriers and blind-spots that get in the way of finding love,” she said. “My job is to help people identify and overcome them in order to enhance their chances of getting it right.”

Expanding Services to Include a Detailed Profile Assessment

Vida is branching out from traditional matchmaking by taking on PassionSmiths. Madeleine said she will expand the standard dating coaching package to include a full psychological profile and assessment. This service will allow singles to hone in on why they’re single, what issues are at play, and what they need to work on to make progress in the love department.

Madeleine can highlight a single person’s strengths and weaknesses over the course of a confidential conversation and give them a foundation to build on when they go on dates. Vida dating coaches will assess the client’s dating style and determine if the matchmaking firm is the right fit for that person. They will then sagely recommend the services and steps they believe will lead to lasting love.

“The aim is to create a bespoke report that guides singles more cleverly through the dating minefield, based on psychological principles and science,” she said. “We will support them with our expert experiences on working successfully with singles. We know what works!”
