Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a “breakup” coach? What is it?
A “breakup” coach is someone who helps us through the breakup of a relationship. Sometimes, your pain can seem overwhelming. Sometimes, it feels like there’s nowhere to turn. If you have friends and family that you talk to, you may feel like you’re imposing on them all the time. I used to call some of my friends three times a day to talk about my “feelings.” I can imagine now that it must have been hard for them to listen to me some days. Other times, my well-meaning mother would say the LAST thing I wanted or needed to hear.
Sometimes, when you’re in a relationship, you make that relationship the center of your life and slowly lose track of friendships. So if you don’t have friends and family at this time, you can feel completely isolated and alone.
Maybe you’re not so sure you need “professional” help right now.
You may have a sense of being overwhelmed by negative emotions that seem out of control at times. You may feel like you have no one to turn to and even if you do, are they giving you good advice that makes you feel better?
You may be extremely scared of your future. What will you do without him? How will you make ends meet? What will you do on a Saturday night alone? What does life look like without him? The “what-ifs” can take your daily thoughts on a downward spiral, if you let them.
A coach can help with some of the biggest problems as you face a fresh breakup:
Lack of self-care
I want to help you face your feelings while also maintaining control of them. They’re not the boss of you ~ it’s the other way around!
I want you to realize that fear is conquerable. It’s perfectly natural. However, it’s NOT a forever thing.
Taking the “high road” is something that you’ll never regret. Typically, you have MANY opportunities to take the low road. The sense of achievement one can have by taking the high road is priceless.
YOU are very important. You’re also the only one in charge of taking care of YOU. Therefore, I give you many wonderful ideas on how to take great care of YOU!
You might feel lonely at times. That’s okay. I give you tips on how to ease this sense and actually start craving YOU time.
I really focus on the positive aspect of a breakup. There are so many hidden opportunities to learn. Yeah, I know that sounds unbelievable when you’re in the first few stages of a breakup. It is true, though.
It’s fun to discover who you are and what you like. Sometimes, when we’re in a relationship, we “lose” ourselves. We take on our partner’s hobbies or just simply forget about our own. It’s fun to learn about you again.
So a breakup coach starts where you start. If you’re at the overwhelmed stage, we begin there. I want to coach you through all the difficulties to a place of self-confidence, peace and a fresh and positive perspective about your future.
Will coaching really help?
Yes. My coaching packages give you plenty of opportunities to feel good about yourself and watch as your life changes for the better. You’ll learn how to soothe yourself through the tough times too. Also, I LOVE to give my clients little inspirational surprises along the way. I have gotten a tremendous response to these little gifts that show up on your doorstep unexpectedly.
So if YOU have a desire to change your life, then my program leads you down the path to feeling good about yourself, to taking care of yourself, to looking forward to the future but also how to deal with the not-so-fun aspects of daily life that come at you too.
The reason for my presence in your life is all about YOU! I’m here to bring you positive experiences. I take that responsibility very seriously. I want our time together to be tremendously beneficial to you. I want you to have fun on this journey with me. I want this coaching to change your life forever.
What’s the “Get-Acquainted” call about?
It’s a great chance for us to get to know each other a little bit better. It’s a way for me to find out about your current situation and what you’ve tried and what has or hasn’t worked for you and what you want to work on most and what your ideal outcome is.
I’ll describe to you, in detail, the coaching packages that I offer. You decide if you’re interested. There is absolutely no pressure on this call. I invite you to get to know me and my personality to see if I’m a good fit for you.
Is there a guarantee?
Yes. I really want you to get a sense of how you can benefit from coaching with me. Therefore, anytime prior to our third session together, if you don’t feel like you are realizing a true benefit, all you need to do is e-mail email@example.com. You will receive a full refund of all monies paid to date. It’s that simple.
I truly believe in the packages I offer and their value to people’s lives. Therefore, I’m happy to offer a risk-free guarantee.
How will Laura ever understand exactly what my unique situation is?
First of all, I know that every situation is a little different ~ some are married ~ some aren’t ~ some have children ~ some don’t ~ some have been together many, many years ~ some have been together 6 months. The reason for the breakup can be extremely varied too. However, there are similar challenges faced by all of us as we go through a breakup.
That’s why we have the get-acquainted call. When I know what your particular situation includes, I can tailor the package to your specific needs so that you attain the most benefit.
What if the package ends and I want more?
I offer maintenance packages to fit any budget. If, at the end of the package you originally purchased, you want to continue our journey together ~ I’m here to support you all the way. At that point, I explain what the maintenance packages offer and you decide if you’d like to continue at that time. It’s a great way to stay connected and encouraged!
Is it expensive?
In order to provide a budget-friendly experience, I offer three different package levels that are all designed to give you the support you need. Each level has a convenient 3-payment option. The price for each level is something we discuss during the get-acquainted call. There’s no pressure to sign up with me. Just some information and fun!
Is there any age limit?
Yes. I find that I’m most helpful to lovely ladies between the ages of 25-65. Even though there are different phases in each level of life, there are common themes that emerge. Therefore, I’m able to help women with quite a variety of ages and background experiences.
These packages are perfect for you if:
You have a desire to take action to improve your life
You don’t enjoy the feeling of spiraling downward
You’re motivated and ready to uplevel your life
You want to learn from your breakup
You know you want to emerge from this breakup better than ever
Who ISN’T this coaching perfect for?
These packages aren’t for you if:
*You have difficulty honoring commitments
*You have a tendency to complain or blame others for your results
*You’re content to stay where you are
*You’re not ready to get serious about your life
When can I start?
You can start almost immediately. You’ll get a welcome package in the mail welcoming you to the program. Then you and I will decide on a weekly time for your call. I have specific chunks of time each week that I devote to coaching calls. Once we agree on your call time, you start right away. Typically, within the first week you register and sometimes as soon as the next day.
