Qualifications are at the heart of our award-winning service

At Ignite Dating we understand it can be a big decision to invest in the services of a matchmaker. If you are unfamiliar with the dating industry and how matchmaking works, then it might seem tricky to choose between the array of agencies available. Returning to the dating world after a long break can be a daunting time, so it’s extremely important to be sure you have chosen the right experts to partner with on your dating journey. 

We know how important it is to you to make the right choice, so we work hard to ensure our matchmaking team is trained to the highest standard. That way, you can be sure you are working with the best. 

We believe qualifications and certification courses are vital to ensuring our team are equipped with the right skills and credentials to offer the best possible service. We ensure we offer a supportive dating journey where we work closely with each client to understand exactly what they want from a relationship. Investing in comprehensive training means we offer clients the best possible service and support at every step of their journey, while ensuring we can offer a thorough understanding of their individual relationship needs. 

As well completing our extensive in-house training, we are proud that our team has achieved an array of qualifications from prestigious organisations.

The Matchmaking Institute 

All of our matchmaking team work to gain accreditation from the prestigious Matchmaking Institute, an organisation offering tailor-made matchmaker certification courses with a network of graduates all over the world. The courses are designed to help matchmakers run their businesses more effectively and follow a global industry standard in matchmaking.


Several members of our expert team also boast a Science-Based Coaching Certification from the Matchmaking Institute

The dating experts include MD and founder Michelle Begy, Senior Dating Consultant Julie Drummond, and Matchmaker and Headhunter Gabriella Nobrega, who have all completed the qualification to become a certified dating and relationship coach. 

The course offers matchmakers the opportunity to learn essential tools to connect with their clients. This includes helping them understand their patterns, recognise what holds them back, and address self-sabotaging beliefs and attitudes. It also equips matchmakers with the knowledge to help clients learn the effective dating skills they need to find their perfect match. The course also offers matchmakers skills in helping the people they work with identify their key life values so they can understand what they need in a partner. 


As matchmakers we understand just how important a person’s personality is to their dating journey. We’re proud our Managing Director Michelle Begy has achieved MBTI and FIRO practitioner status.

Her knowledge of both tools offers an even more in-depth understanding of personality type and relationship needs, helping her to really understand what makes somebody tick and ensuring a finely tuned match based on their specific preferences.

Michelle said: “I am committed to providing clients with complete peace of mind at what can be a vulnerable time of their life, and I’m committed to ensuring my team are trained to a high standard so we can ensure we offer the same award-winning, customer-centric service to clients no matter where they are based in the world.”
