Women can find support resources for nearly everything in their lives-- motherhood, professional advancement, marriage. But when it comes to friendship, there's virtually nothing to help us through.
Many therapists report that the number on topic discussed in their offices is friendship, yet there is still reluctance around getting help for one of the most important relationships you'll ever have (according to research, the single greatest factor on your overall wellbeing and life satisfaction is your relationships-- not your income or marital status!).
No one taught us HOW to create and maintain meaningful friendships, and that's why so many of us are struggling today.
But our resident friendship coach, Danielle Bayard Jackson, (along with her support team) is equipped to help you through several common issues.
What does a friendship coach teach you?
A coach teaches you about the intricacies of female friendships so that you can foster richer friendships with your girl friends. From how to be less socially awkward to how to get over a friendship breakup that has you a little bitter, these are topics that society does not talk about openly! A friendship coach will help you navigate these waters - healthily and classily.
