Getting Over A Breakup: Heartbreak Coach Shares Her Secrets

Everybody knows that breaking up is hard to do.

Enter the breakup coach, a new kind of therapist tasked with helping heartbroken people recuperate. Aurora Winter, a celebrity heartbreak coach and founder of The Grief Coach Academy, stopped by HuffPost Live on Monday to share her advice on how to recover post-split.

Winter said that the breakup is an opportunity for the brokenhearted to find themselves again.

"I think people have the opportunity to really claim a different self after the breakup, the death or the divorce, and to really grab hold of that and say 'who am I today?' she said. "I think most of us are living with outdated notions of ourselves that we haven't updated since we were 14. And [with] a breakup, especially a painful one, you can go 'well who am I really? What do I stand for?"
