Are You Ready For a Heart-Centered Career that Supports Others to Heal After Heartbreak and Recreate Their Lives In Meaningful and Inspiring Ways?

Join the global movement toward conscious, kind separations and endings by becoming a Conscious Uncoupling Certified Coach

Watch the short video below where Katherine shares about this exclusive opportunity to become a professional relationship coach 

(*The $75 application fee is being waived through Sunday, July 16 at 11:59 pm.) 

There’s a Better Way to Breakup

We enter our romantic relationships with great love, hope and excitement, planning and forging our futures together without thinking about how we’d handle our union ever coming to an end. 

Yet, it goes without saying that, in reality, relationships often end and they rarely, if ever, do so in kind, considerate and loving ways.

Ugly, destructive and expensive breakups and divorce are rampant, and statistics show there are more people living with what therapist’s call “complicated” breakup grief than ever before.

In a world where breakups are often treated like a battlefield, many feel as though they’ve failed at love, and are now paying the high price of shame, humiliation and defeat.

But it doesn’t have to be this way!

There is a path where people can part ways in a kind, mutually respectful uncoupling, which supports everyone involved to heal their hearts and avoid the emotional, spiritual and financial damages of a contentious breakup.

Conscious Uncoupling – the signature program that famously helped Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin uncouple with love, honor, and respect – is changing the face of breakups and divorce, goes beyond simply wishing for a world of conscious separations, and offers a way forward where children are healthy on the other side of divorce and where our hearts become open and available to love even more deeply at the end of a relationship.

Become a Catalyst for Conscious Uncoupling as a Certified Coach

(*The $75 application fee is being waived through Sunday, July 16 at 11:59 pm.) 

Conscious Uncoupling is the Breakthrough Process that Made 'Conscious Divorce' a Household Term

As a Certified Coach, you will help people actually live these ideals by successfully moving through the 5-Stages of Conscious Uncoupling and finally create their happy-even-after love story.

You're an Ideal Candidate for
the Conscious Uncoupling Coach Training if:

  • You care deeply about people and they naturally gravitate to you when going through difficult times.

  • You have a passion for helping people create ecstatically happy, healthy and deeply fulfilling love lives, including your own! 

  • You have been looking for a program you believe in that has a proven track record of success, and a master teacher who will guide you step by step to ensure that you, too, become a master practitioner.

  • You have already experienced some degree of success in your career, but you know you’re destined for an even greater contribution.

  • You thrive with the support of others and do well with a network of colleagues and mentors who are committed to your success.

  • You’re a therapist, social worker or professional coach, and you’re looking for a way to expand your practice and significantly increase your income.

  • Or, you’re NOT a professional coach yet, but you know deep down inside that you’ve got what it takes to be a great coach.

Breakups are often isolating experiences.
While the Conscious Uncoupling book is supportive, people thrive when they have a skilled coach they can trust to help them through the 5-Steps of the Conscious Uncoupling process.

Since the release of the New York Times Bestselling book, Conscious Uncoupling: 5 Steps to Living Happily Even After, this one-of-a-kind process has helped thousands of people navigate their breakups and divorces with clarity and kindness while radically transforming their lives along the way. 

Until recently, breakups and divorce have been an ugly war where no one really wins, yet almost everything is lost.

But, with Conscious Uncoupling, a breakup becomes an opportunity to catalyze profound personal growth and awakening for everyone involved. We have the chance to end the brutality of deeply wounding separations and protect the hearts of millions of adults, teenagers, and children as people learn to break up better.

We can make conscious, respectful and honorable endings the new norm, and take a stand for healthy love – even after – in our communities and safeguard it for future generations as well.

Highly Skilled, Relationship Coaches that Can Support Healing After Heartbreak Are In High Demand

Katherine is selecting a group of passionate, purposeful individuals she can mentor to become masterful facilitators of the work and coach people through the trusted 5-Step Conscious Uncoupling process.

(*The $75 application fee is being waived through Sunday, July 16 at 11:59 pm.) 

When You Become a Conscious Uncoupling Certified Coach, You Can Expect:

• Profound success helping people create long-lasting change in their relationships.

Tremendous confidence to realize your highest calling.

Increases in income – many coaches have doubled and tripled their income.

Unwavering purpose as you reach your potential for significant and meaningful contribution.

• Breakthroughs in your own inner growth and transformation while coaching others.

Deep satisfaction and fulfillment in both your professional and personal life.

• Security in your ability to generate a consistent stream of clientele.

• Certainty that you have something truly valuable and extremely marketable to offer.

Join Katherine in furthering this global movement meant to reduce the trauma associated with bitter breakups and replace it with the paradigm-shifting path Conscious Uncoupling offers for endings filled with mutual respect, kindness and deep caring.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wondering if the Conscious Uncoupling Certified Coach Training is right for you?  Review our FAQ’s to get answers to clients most common questions

Created in 2010 by psychotherapist and bestselling author Katherine Woodward Thomas, MA, MFT, the Conscious Uncoupling Process recently received unprecedented media attention when actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her former husband, Chris Martin, announced they were “consciously uncoupling” in an open letter Gwyneth posted to her website.

This media attention has left the world asking, “Is this type of breakup really possible?” And the good news is that not only is it possible, but Katherine’s proven approach has made this a reality in thousands of lives.

To date, thousands of individuals and couples around the world from over 40 countries have used the Conscious Uncoupling 5 Step Course to heal, move on, create on-going peace and respect in their families, co-parent with grace and love, and at times, even learn how to transition to becoming great friends as well.

Absolutely not! While any previous training and experience you’ve had will certainly be valuable in your new career, our program is designed to teach you everything you need to know to be an effective and successful coach. If you are not already a Licensed Therapist or credentialed Life Coach, we are happy to provide extra support and mentoring throughout the program. Regardless of your training to date, you will be well-supported in how to handle the challenges clients face as they experience devastation of a breakup or divorce, and you will be fully equipped to guide them towards releasing their anger and resentment, handling their painful emotions, and moving on with love.

No. What is most important is that a Conscious Uncoupling Coach be committed to living in alignment with the principles laid out in the book, whether or not you lived them out in any breakup or divorce you once experienced. You will learn to hold the space and possibility for a peaceful and generosity-filled ending for others, regardless of current circumstances or past woundings. Many people train with us as a means of causing a breakthrough in their own lives, since being a Conscious Uncoupling Coach provides a solid structure for gaining mastery over the material.

Katherine Woodward Thomas, M.A., MFT is the New York Times Bestselling Author of Calling in “The One:” 7 Weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life and Conscious Uncoupling: 5 Steps to Living Happily Even After, which inspired the conscious breakup of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, and launched a movement towards kinder, more honorable breakups and divorce.

Katherine is an award-winning licensed marriage and family therapist, and teacher to hundreds of thousands in her virtual and in-person learning communities, as well as a featured teacher on the internally-renowned online transformational learning giant, Mindvalley. To date, she’s trained and certified hundreds to be Calling in “The One” Coaches and Conscious Uncoupling Coaches.

When you become a Conscious Uncoupling Coach, you work for yourself and have full control over your schedule, the amount of clients you decide to take on, as well as the client base you wish to serve. Some graduates take up coaching as a full-time career. Others use it to augment their income part-time.

Conscious Uncoupling is an internationally recognized brand, so you have the momentum of a successful program that is already acclaimed and known throughout the world. In some instances, Katherine is willing to partner with you by coming to speak to a group and lead a Conscious Uncoupling workshop in your city, introducing you to your community as a person who has trained with her and is credentialed to coach people one-on-one.

We suggest that you set your fees according to the going rate for counseling in the area where you live, as well as according to the previous experience and already existing credentials you have in counseling others. Conscious Uncoupling Coaches currently charge anywhere from $900 to $2500 for a 6 session coaching package. You can recoup your investment in the training with just a few clients! Since you are packaging your coaching sessions as a 5-step program, it is easy to offer special deals for those who sign up and pay for the entire program in advance.

Many clients will choose to continue working with you after they have completed the initial 5-Step coaching package. Clients may wish to continue to work with you to become happy in other areas of their life – or even help finding love again! You will be trained in how to identify needs for further work and how to create a structure to continue to support clients to achieve their outcomes in an ongoing way.

You will have the option to work by telephone, skype, rent or create an office space, or in some instances, make house calls. If you are able to create an office space in your home (inquire with your local zoning authorities for regulations) or rent a space on a full or part-time basis so that you can meet face-to-face with your clients, it’s often an advantage but is not necessary. Ideally, you want an office that is comfortable, professional and very private, so clients feel safe and comfortable enough to enter into deeply intimate, self-reflective, and tender conversations.

Absolutely not! Your business is yours and all monies that you earn are yours to keep. Your investment fee with us is paid up front and there are no other costs involved, other than the costs you may incur in doing business (such as setting up an office space, marketing materials, etc.).

In this training, Katherine has included a full day workshop on how to work with couples who wish to move through the 5-step Conscious Uncoupling process. However, working with contentious couples is a complex practice and most of our coaches work with individuals. The Conscious Uncoupling process is a deeply internal one, and largely focuses on helping individuals to achieve an internal sense of completion and peace as the foundation for engaging the logistics and legalities of breakups, divorce and separation. In spite of the media’s focus on the co-operative breakup of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, the course was actually designed more for individuals.

For those of you who wish to work with couples, we will provide you with training on how to do so. You will also have the option to work in partnership with another Conscious Uncoupling Coach when working with the couples who approach you for support. We will train you on how to use either approach to provide the support that each person in the couple needs using this approach, presenting a cohesive method for ensuring the safe passage through the thorny terrain of a breakup.

If you do have training in working with couples, you can of course adapt the material to your already existing work.

Completion certificates will be awarded via email download within 90 days after all certification requirements are met.

You will be e-mailed a virtual copy of Conscious Uncoupling, which should be read prior to training. This is your only course prep, though for those who are eager to begin, you could always start on the required reading list that will be sent to you before the program begins.
