Breakups can be real tough—”sobbing on the couch into a tub of ice-cream” kind of tough. It’s easy to think you’ll never get through it and as much as your loved ones tell you, ‘It’ll be okay’, you think, ‘What do they know’?
But, have you ever considered a break-up coach?
Meet Natalia Juarez. A 37- year-old Toronto woman who turned her heartbreak into a new career by becoming a break-up coach. Juarez is an expert in all things break-up.
According to Psychology Today, Juarez has spent the last five years “working with people all over the world to navigate their romantic challenges (breakups, dating, infidelity,) create strategic plans, and get accelerated results.”
She has designed coaching programs that help men and women from around the world get through the “it’s complicated” stage — and even works through divorces and infidelity. She even offers holistic coaching, dating and breakup strategies, and yoga therapy!
So, how does one become a break-up coach? At age 25, Juarez says she went through the worst breakup of her life that left her with a shattered heart. Her seven-year relationship ended in 2007. But, she stayed in contact with her ex which only made it harder to move on. The relationship came to an official end when she met someone else in summer 2008.
This new relationship also went down a rocky road. It wasn’t long after when Juarez broke off the engagement due to an unhealthy relationship and his “controlling” behaviour. The silver lining? She spent the next two years figuring out who she is and how to date healthy.
