KATIE Holmes has hired a dating coach.
The actress — who last year divorced husband Tom Cruise — is keen to move on from her failed marriage to the actor — so has sought professional help to boost her confidence around men.
“It was after her birthday at the end of December that Katie decided it was time to give her love life a different approach,” a source said.
“She’s had one-to-one sessions and the occasional phone session, and she’s learning how to approach people, as well as dating and flirting tips to get her confidence back.
“With a little bit of help, Katie now feels she’s armed with enough confidence to start dating again and taking that next step to finding a perfect partner.
“It’s a new year and she wants to do something about it.
“It’s really hard to meet people in New York, especially when you’re a single mother. If she’s lonely, it would be understandable.
“Friends have suggested setting her up with people, but she wasn’t that keen, so she has now turned to a professional to give her a much-needed boost.”
