“A bad breakup can be one of the most traumatic things you’ll ever go through. It’s often been compared to a life-threatening illness or a terrible car accident that can leave you and your life completely devastated.”
Katherine Woodward Thomas,  Conscious Uncoupling: 5 Steps to Living Happily Even After

It doesn’t matter if the breakup is recent or it happened many years ago. The pain is real, because it involves loss – loss of a relationship, sometimes a home and sometimes family and friendships. And it doesn’t matter what the quality of the relationship was. Whether the relationship was nurturing or less than optimal, it’s a still loss and it hurts.

“Pain is inevitable but suffering is optional.”

At the time of the breakup, and maybe for a long time after, you may begin to wonder if you’ll ever recover or if you’ll ever again have an intimate, loving relationship. But the truth is, it doesn’t have to be this way. There are ways to navigate this life-changing transition, absorb its lessons and begin to embrace life in a new and re-energized way.

That’s what the Conscious Uncoupling process will help you to do. And working with a qualified Conscious Uncoupling coach will help you achieve that result much more quickly.

Imagine working with someone, your own personal coach, who fully understands your experience, can hold you in compassionate care and has the knowledge and the skills to support your healing so that you can move on to the brighter future that you so deeply deserve.

The end of a relationship is painful, yes. But you don’t have to suffer needlessly when there is a better way to prepare for the conclusion of your relationship or deal with the aftermath of a breakup.

What is Conscious Uncoupling™ ?


The Conscious Uncoupling Program was created by psychotherapist, author and educator, Katherine Woodward Thomas.

The term Conscious Uncoupling came to the world-wide attention when actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her musician husband Chris Martin announced their own conscious uncoupling.

But, beyond the headlines that focus on one couple, are the stories of hundreds and thousands of people around the globe who have successfully used the Conscious Uncoupling process. They’ve demonstrated that breaking up can be done in a whole new way without the deep suffering so many experience in the course of a relationship breakdown.

We’ve all witnessed bad breakups. Breakups full of bitterness and acrimony. Breakups that are damaging for the couple involved and their immediate families. We may even have been deeply affected by someone else’s bad breakup.

So, one thing you do know is that you don’t want to recreate that destructive experience in your own relationship breakup. You want to do this humanely. In a way in which dignity, respect and care prevail in the concluding of the relationship. A way in which children and close relatives are not caught in the fall out. You just need to know how to do it.

That’s what the Conscious Uncoupling Program will support you to do.

And even if your break up happened long ago, this program can help you to repair the harm and heal from past pain.

There is hope and there is an answer.

The Conscious Uncoupling program gives you:

A step-by-step road map for how to breakup in a way that does minimal damage to all involved;

A 5-Step process for how to end a romantic union in honorable, gracious and respectful ways;

A clear guide for how separating couples can create new, cooperative and life-affirming agreements and structures that set everyone up to win moving forward.

The Five Steps of Conscious Uncoupling


Find deeper meaning in your breakup and liberate yourself from disempowering beliefs that are causing you suffering.


Release toxic patterns in relationships and baggage from previous relationships; reclaim your power and self-worth.


Learn the 5-step process that will liberate you forever from the old patterns and get you on the road to learning new relationship skills that set you up for successful future relationships.


Engage rituals and exercises to release negative karma and clear the way for the healthy and passionate future love.


Complete the uncoupling process through the powerful Conscious Uncoupling Ritual then open the floodgates of possibility of attracting new and healthy love.

How You’ll Work with  Me — Your Conscious Uncoupling Coach

buttrflyIf you’ve worked with a coach before, you will know that good coaching is about partnership.

I partner with you firstly through compassionate and careful listening. I will then skillfully shape the teachings of this remarkable course to your specific needs to support you to find your own unique path to healing hurt and creating a more loving future.

But don’t worry. We won’t skip anything, just put emphasis where it is needed.

Pacing is vital too.  Together we will decide how quickly or slowly we will cover the core steps of the Conscious Uncoupling program. Everyone is different. Some of us need more time or less time to take in the concepts and begin to incorporate them into our real-time lives with all of its demands. So we will adjust the pace according to your needs.

Of course disappointments, delays and setbacks happen along the way (let’s call them “breakdowns”). That’s normal. But together we will navigate the breakdowns and transform them into breakthroughs. That’s the beauty and the gift of having a skilled, sensitive and well-experienced coach at your side.

And yes! I’ll be there to celebrate your breakthroughs and successes. And they will happen!

You will not be alone on this journey. That’s a promise.

How you and I will connect

Technology is magic! We will work together via Skype or phone.  It doesn’t matter where you live on this globe. 

If you haven’t engaged this way before, you will be surprised at the depth of connection that is possible in the virtual room we will create together!  I’ve worked this way with hundreds of people with great success.

How you will access the Conscious Uncoupling Program

The starting point for our coaching sessions is the book Conscious Uncoupling: 5 Steps to Living Happily Even After, which I encourage you to purchase and begin reading as soon as possible. In addition to the book, there are audio and written materials that you can access or that I will make available to you.

What people are saying about Mary Rizk & her Conscious Uncoupling Coaching

Mary and I met at a time when I needed her and I am very glad that we did. With her help I have been able to let go of issues from my past that I thought I had already dealt with. It was a pleasure talking with her every week and getting her wisdom, expertise, support and love. I know I now have the tools I can use for the rest of my life if ever I need to. I really wish I had recorded the sessions so I could listen back and learn even more from Mary, she was awesome.

Kathryn LouiseMelbourne, Australia

Mary is a gifted coach. She grasps the essence or dynamics of a situation and responds with wisdom and love. She draws from a large reservoir of experience and knowledge, including the work of Katherine Woodward Thomas on ‘Conscious Uncoupling’ and ‘Feminine Power’. She operates from the underlying belief that life is good and that we all deserve to love and be loved. She has been exceptionally helpful to me and generous. I highly recommend Mary.

WendyNew Brunswick, Canada

Mary, thank you so much for guiding me through this deep transformation for me. This is a first for me in my life. I have had so many unconscious completions in my past with old friends, business partners, etc. I now know that I have forever changed this pattern and I have a new template for how beautiful an uncoupling can be. Sending you much love and appreciation.
