What They Are Saying!
Life After Divorce Group Coaching Program
Patricia had the appropriate knowledge pertaining to the course and I would rate the program a 10. The modules had the right amount of content and was very direct. I enjoyed the group exercises. They were natural and respectful. I felt safe and comfortable sharing my personal experiences.
All of the exercises were appropriate to the program. I enjoyed the program and when you spend time to do the steps it helps create my personal plan. The best part of the course was the first module on Grief and the last module on Life Work Balance. On each module I enjoyed the group discussions because we got to share what we go through.
I will continue to practice what I learned because I finally have the knowledge to work on the things I had going through in my head. So, I am prepared to use this information to go back and do the work on prioritizing my life and want to move forward and take control of my life.
I learned a lot and I am able to process fully the work needed to get through this divorce. I will recommend this program to my friends and others will be able to learn for themselves what it will take for them to do the work for their own happiness and success through this program because there is consistency in the guidance from Coach Patricia. I’m doing the work on myself and I have grown past what was holding me back.
Life After Divorce Group Coaching
Wonderful course, thanks very much Patricia. I learned a lot. Forced us to reflect and sharing was good. I enjoyed the work exercises it forced us to reflect and sharing was good. Felt I had time to do so. Others were listening. Patricia had good prompts and probed appropriately.
The warmup exercises were good to do something interactive in the beginning to get us talking.
I will continue to practice what I learned from the course otherwise I’m dead! I learned new ways to reinforce that I need to work now on my financial future and connecting with friends and family.
I would recommend taking this course as I met more people who are going through separation or divorce, I will definitely recommend Patricia as a Coach and her course.
Life After Divorce Group Coaching
I enjoyed the program and the interaction with other people. The best part of the course helped me to move forward. I will continue to practice what I learned on a daily basis. I learned that it’s possible to move forward even though right now it feels different. I’m happy to be on the right path. I would definitely recommend this course to others.
I was very fortunate to meet Patricia at a time in my life where I really needed to lean on someone who wasn’t family and friend, someone who could be impartial and help me “see the forest for the trees”. My marriage was at a turning point where we were either going to move forward or divorce. Patricia helped me take a step back to see what was really important to me, what I needed and what was truly being offered to me in our marriage. She has been an invaluable sounding board over the last 4 months and I couldn’t have gone through this without her support.
Patricia genuinely cares about you as an individual and helps guide you to what is best for you. She regularly checked in with me in between sessions, particularly when she knew I was going through a difficult time and always seemed to have the right words to support me during those periods. She has a such a gentle, soothing and empathetic disposition. She is a truly kind and caring individual and would often ask really good questions to make me think a little deeper about what was truly going on in my life and in our marriage.
I would highly recommend Patricia to anyone needing an impartial sounding board, and a kind, caring and insightful coach.
Patricia has been an amazing coach! She helped me understand things from another perspective and provided me with the tools needed to start living my life, setting boundaries and learning who I am. My healing process wouldn’t be the saw without Patricia! 100percent recommended.
I am completely satisfied with Patricia’s coaching program. I consider myself extremely lucky to have found such a patient, knowledgeable and understanding person such as Ms. Lavigne to help guide me threw a difficult, scary time in my life. Her services are incredibly helpful in my journey and I will definitely recommend such to anyone I know who needs them.
I truly value your comprehensive coaching strategy and friendship.
I met Patricia at one of the weakest moments in my emotional personal life. I know she was heavenly assigned to work with me and up until the present moment I am ever so grateful for my life coach. Even though Ms. Patricia deals matters of divorce, she has been working with me to encourage me on my personal development and has empowered me to believe in myself and I have seen changes in my live through our meetings. I’m so happy that Patricia understands how to work with me even when I feel like I don’t know what I’m going through. I always look forward to our sessions and will continue to reach my professional and personal goals. I am proud also with myself because I always knew I want to get help and working with coach Patricia made my development worth it🎉 I came a long way and I’m happy.
Patricia is someone who can help you create a renewed sense of purpose when your life gets derailed. She listens without judgement and helps you see the roadblocks you may unwittingly be setting up for yourself. She will offer up fresh insights and you can challenge her perceptions with no hint of her ego getting in the way. She will help you realize your true potential and guide you on the steps you need to take for a more fulfilling life.
Patricia was a guiding light for me when I wasn’t sure what would come next. When you are with someone for a while, it is very scary when it falls apart.
Patricia was there when I really needed someone. We will always have that connection.
Patricia is an exceptional life coach. Over the past year she has helped me to set, prioritize and achieve several of my life goals. I’m going to continue to work with Patricia again this year as my one year results were amazing!
When my husband left, and I was faced with living alone for the first time in 30 years, I was at a loss as to what to do. So I ranted with friends and neighbors who didn’t want to take sides or get involved. I got angry and said things to my husband and my kids that I shouldn’t have. And I unsuccessfully tried to soothe my sorrows in food and drink.
Then I hired Patricia as my divorce coach. And, although I still do some things I regret, I do far less of them. And I better understand why I do them. She has saved me a lot of money that I would have spent on psychotherapy and lawyers! She is an excellent listener and meets me where I am at. She asks questions that enable me to think through what is going on and access my options. At times, she has encouraged me to slow down and process, while other times, when she sees that I am physically and psychologically ready to move on, she helps me do so.
Through her examples and gentle suggestions, I have learned the importance of self-acceptance and self-care. She has helped me analyze my communications to my husband and my kids and adjust so that all of us move forward. Although I still react emotionally at times, as a result of processing with her what went wrong, or planning for a future communication, I am better able to respond in accordance with my values and in a way that role models appropriate behavior to my kids.
I am still scared about what lies ahead. However, as a result of working with Patricia, I feel comfortable that no matter what happens, all of us will come through it ok, and will be able to gather together as a family. Most importantly, I will be happy as a single person, and have few regrets regarding the decisions I made and how I conducted myself during the transition.
Patricia has been a blessing. In the past 3 years I have separated and Divorced. Throughout this difficult time in my life Patricia has been a beacon of light. Her coaching has been inspirational and received without judgement or bias. Her counselling has helped me to find my own way. Patricia allows you to rediscover and recover your true self. She can help you through difficult time to reconnect or find a new path.
I first met Patricia when I joined her Meetup. Her smile, when she welcomed me into the group, made it possible for me to return the following week. She made me feel welcomed to the group.
When attending events, they were fun, educational, and productive. Let me say Patricia has the gift as a good facilitator and organizer. As a friend Patricia has given me helpful advice, encouragement, and support in my personal life as well as my business. Patricia is a friend who always makes you feel welcome. To me, every moment with Patricia gives happy memories as she is always encouraging me with an amazing smile. My life has been impacted by the advice she has given me over the years.
I met Patricia many years ago and became close friends ever since. She has the strong ability to connect with others, listen attentively and always willing to help in any way she can. Patricia gives wholesome advice, without any judgement. She is a compassionate person, a supportive friend and a trusted confident. I highly recommend her services.
Sometimes a major change in life comes along… that we really didn’t expect. This was the case for me. In this regard it triggered issues that I thought I dealt with long ago, but now they rose to the surface creating a constant… uneasy feeling.
Patricia helped me unpack these feelings, holding space to acknowledge them ….but also providing the impetus to move forward. She has a number of courses and programs that can help you plan a new course with your life.
You know, …you can be an intuitive and caring person …but still be unable to see the steps that you are taking…. which are leading you down the same… predictable …path.
Knowing I had someone in my court who was there to listen and acknowledge me… was important. So was finding someone who can help guide me back to a place where I can reclaim my sense of equanimity and calm. Patricia is someone… who can help you create a renewed ..sense …of purpose with your life.
You know, I think helping people is a gift you give to others. You need to be clear in your intentions and confident in yourself. You need to be genuine and have innate kindness and empathy for others. But you also need to be firm on what works and …what doesn’t… in guiding those you help.
You need someone who can listen without judgement and understand their key role in your life… is… to help you get past these roadblocks. Roadblocks which we sometimes unknowingly set up for ourselves.
Patricia will offer up fresh insights.
You can challenge her perceptions with no hint of her ego getting in the way.
She will help you realize there is so much more potential to who you are ….than what you can see now and she will help you realize what it is possible for you to do and achieve with your life.
I’m sure we all agree There is not a lot of constants in the world we live in today. Things change rapidly. People disappoint. Life moves in directions we didn’t expect to take.
Grappling with all this can be overwhelming. Having a coach on the sidelines who is able to discern the problems behind your issues and is someone who can help motivate you towards the changes you need to take…is invaluable in my opinion.
I first met Patricia Lavigne at one of her group sessions. I was recently divorced and was needy, both emotionally and socially. Patricia is one of those rare individuals who possesses the right balance of –friendly, sensitive, good head on her shoulders, and has an innate sense of direction. She was quickly able to incorporate me, with all my needs into the social setting of her group, where I today, still feel extremely comfortable and welcome. Patricia’s meetup group event choices were always inviting, stimulating and fun filled. Patricia hosted and instructed divorced and widowed individuals in her frequent social learning sessions where we left with informative skills and many new friends. Patricia’s other meetup events always provided her members with numerous challenging ways to interact with each other–volleyball, bowling, picnics, karaoke, social dancing, book club, just to name a few, kudos to you Patricia and many many thanks
