This might sound familiar…
You want to be confident handling a client’s most painful coaching requests

But worry you’ll come across as cold, fall in the pool or say the wrong thing

You know the Model but feel unsure about how to use it for grief

So you tip-toe around heavy topics and don’t feel as sure of your coaching as you’d like

You’ve heard our culture sucks at grief and want to have a better understanding of grief myths and theory

But don’t want to read all the books

Or maybe you’re where I was in 2017… wanting to help clients with grief but worried it will be too heavy or that you don’t have the required knowledge or experience?

If this sounds familiar, you’re in the right place and my Advanced Coaching Certification in Grief & Post Traumatic Growth will transform the way you coach.

Hi, I’m Krista St-Germain, Master Coach Instructor, Grief and Post Traumatic Growth expert, widow and host of The Widowed Mom Podcast.

After my husband was killed by a drunk driver when I was 40, my whole world fell apart. Therapy helped me get back to functioning and unfurl from the fetal position. And eventually I found myself stuck in a grief plateau. Everyone was telling me how strong I was but I didn’t feel strong. Instead, I felt empty, hollow and robotic and secretly worried that my best days were behind me.

Thankfully, I found life coaching and began doing my own research on Grief and Post Traumatic Growth. I applied what I learned and used it to create a future I could truly love instead of resigning myself to a “new normal” I didn’t want. And once I figured it out for myself, I decided to certify as a coach, quit my comfortable corporate job and have since built a 7 figure business helping other widows use their loss to create lives they genuinely love.

I’ve heard the saddest of sad stories.

I’ve held space for hundreds of clients as they wept.

I’ve listened to stories of lives falling apart, and then helped my clients rebuild the next chapter knowing that growth after trauma is possible for all of us.
