Welcome, Coach...

As a culture,
we're terrible at grief. As coaches,
we can change that.

The next step? Getting you completely comfortable coaching the scary stuff.

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 you 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.

And while grief coaching is easy and joyful for me now, I wasn’t always comfortable coaching on heavy topics. I used to worry that I’d seem cold if I used The Model for grief. I was scared I’d minimize my clients’ experience if I truly coached them. Who was I to tell them how to grieve?

And now when I guest coach or teach in other programs

Clients start conversations with
“I’m so glad it’s you.”

Coaches tell me regularly that they “don’t know how I do it” and wish they could help clients navigate painful topics like I do.

And while I appreciate the compliments, they also make me sad. Because the truth is that the majority of our clients are currently experiencing some sort of grief. And if their coaches aren’t comfortable helping them, then those clients are missing coaching they need to change their lives. I want you to be as comfortable coaching grief as I am.

This is why I created the Advanced Coaching Certification
 in Grief and Post Traumatic Growth.

As a culture, we suck at grief.

As coaches, we can change that.

Imagine how much more powerful
 your coaching will be when you are...

Wondering if it’s right for you?

This certification is a great fit for you if...
