I'm delighted to have been interviewed for GQ’s “How to Win At Life,” a handbook for the modern man. This book is a collection of masterclasses with global experts on the things they do best. From cooking the perfect steak with Jamie Oliver, to business advice from Richard Branson, to breaking up with someone the *RIGHT* way with yours truly 😉 this book has you covered! #gqwinatlife
For two years, Hamilton-based Joshua Lombardo was stuck in a love-filled, passionate, but often toxic relationship. When his partner ended things, he got stuck in a rut. A few weeks later, when he couldn’t shake the depression, Lombardo called up Natalia Juarez, a Toronto “breakup coach” who’s part of a burgeoning cottage industry for the newly single.
In 2015, months after a breakup with his long-term partner, Adam (not his real name) found himself stuck… [W]hat he really wanted was an expert in heartbreak, someone who could guide him through the process and help him regain his confidence. And so he called on Natalia Juarez, a “breakup expert and dating strategist” based in Toronto.
So your heart’s been torn out of your rib cage and stomped upon by the person you cared about most? Breakups are horrible but — like death and taxes — they’re inevitable. As common as they are, not everyone knows how to handle them in a healthy way.
Getting over a breakup or divorce can be hard, but now there’s a growing industry that's trying to help. Yes, that's right... There's a business for broken hearts. It's called 'breakup coaching' and they are people who offer services to help make the transition easier.
Breaking up is hard to do, as the song says. If you're stuck, you can always call Natalia Juarez, a breakup expert based in Toronto. NPR's Scott Simon talks with her about her business.
For soon-to-be brides and grooms who call off their wedding, there’s the immediate heartbreak that comes with losing someone you planned to spend your life with. Then there’s the logistical nightmare of having to unplan one of the most important events of your life… “It almost seems less taboo to get divorced than to call off a wedding,” said Natalia Juarez, a Toronto-based breakup coach.
The (once) love of your life is (now) out of your life – but that doesn't mean they don't linger. There's work to do if you want to make a clean break.
Indeed, with breakups come the inevitable purge of "things that remind you of your ex." And according to Natalia Juarez, a Toronto breakup coach, tossing the painful, physical reminders of your ex is the first step to the first step to mending a broken heart.
We talked to a breakup coach about exit plans, dealing with breakups on social media, and whether it’s better to be the dumper or the dumpee.
Breaking up with someone, if you have any semblance of a soul, is not a pleasant experience. How do you do it? ... [Y]ou don't need to go through this experience alone, you can take your problems to a professional.
