DECONSTRUCTING GASLIGHTING™ E2: EMPOWERMENT
12-WEEK SIGNATURE PROGRAM
If you've already done my FREE VIDEO SERIES, you know that while there is a spectrum
that GASLIGHTING behaviors and experiences fall on, no matter what,
chronic GASLIGHTING causes trauma.
Recurring trauma causes trauma brain - something science has shown to have concussion like impact! This can present a challenge when you're trying to learn new things, recognize patterns, and come up with solutions!
This understanding is at the heart of how I created my signature program; a program designed to not just educate you about GASLIGHTING – I want to help you TRANSFORM!
I want to help you shift CONFIDENTLY from
to MASTERING the information and tools
that will enable you to become
WHAT SETS THIS OPTION APART FROM THE REST?
“If you want to go fast, go alone;
If you want to go far, go together."

With the The Signature Program PLUS Private 1:1 Sessions, Your Program Includes:
Lifetime access to the Signature Program
Twelve, 90-minute group coaching sessions (You can come for the whole time, or bounce after you've gotten your 1:1 time with me).
***Though this is a 12-week program, we take two to three weeks off at strategic times to allow time for the information to settle in, as well as any "catching up" that you may need.
The Signature Program PLUS Live Group Coaching is a powerful hybrid between the program as a stand-alone, and the Private Coaching option.
Three Main Benefits of the Group Coaching Option:
With INSTANT access to the on-line course and anchoring points (which I explain here), you can begin to learn and implement things IMMEDIATELY, while you wait for the LIVE GROUP COACHING CALLS to begin.
No more rushing to get through the material at a pace that doesn't work for YOUR life; no more struggling to "keep up" with the rest of the group - with THREE yearly starting times, YOU can choose how far in advance you want to go through the course before you start bringing your questions to me in the group coaching calls.
Since MANY of my clients like to go through each lesson a number of times, this combination between instant access + choosing your start time = greater ability to let the lessons sink in - which often means you being able to ask clearer, more powerful questions in our group coachign sessions.
When we begin the group coaching calls, you get to experience the IMPACT of hearing other people who are going through the same lessons as you share their questions and insights, as well as hear my feedback to them. This can be both PROFOUNDLY VALIDATING when you hear others having the same struggles and questions - AND can be INSIGHTFUL as you hear others ask questions or share new awarenesses that, in turn, bring NEW AWARENESS to YOU! THIS IS THE MAGIC OF GROUP COACHING!
*Because SAFETY is always my primary concern for my clients, group participation requires an application. I review each application for approval personally.
(What is covered in each week's lesson)
You work through these weekly elements in a variety of contexts; they are anchored in the more you engage them.
WEEK 1: The Journey Begins
You begin by getting familiar with the flow of the course, setting expectations for the work-load, stating intentions for what you want to get out of the journey this course takes you on.
WEEK 2: The Methods
Increase your ability to recognize gaslighting behaviors by deconstructing the methods. You answer the question: how can I tell...? You will use these to create RED FLAGS that alert you to gaslighting in the future.
WEEK 3: The Techniques
Leaning in a bit, we identify the seven techniques often used to gaslight. You address the question: "Why/How does this happen?"
WEEK 4: The Tactics
Taking out our microscopes (not literally, lol), we zoom in on the finer details of how gaslighting occurs. This is where we talk about things like: love-bombing, mirroring, double-speak, and so much more, and connect them to the different techniques and methods.
WEEK 5: The Roles
Deepen your connection to your gut by identifying the different roles a gaslighter may take on. We link the ties between the tactics, techniques and traits the different roles exemplify.
WEEK 6: Why We're Vulnerable
Explore the ways both externally and internally you are pre-disposed to being vulnerable to gaslighting. You answer the question, "Why does this happen to me?". You use this awareness to alert yourself to the areas you need to pay special attention to as you engage those around you. You don't CHANGE who you are - you value who you are, and now see your vulnerabilities as your responsibility and right to "protect" (boundaries).
WEEK 7: Gaslighting Risks and Traps
This crucial week you dive into your internal world and reveal the reasons you get sucked into the patterns of gaslighting experiences; it's where you confront the question, "Why do I do this?", and learn how to avoid falling into the traps and stay in your knowing and your power.
WEEK 8: Deconstructing Gaslighting
With your new understanding you are now able to see how all the moving parts work together: Roles-methods-techniques-tactics-vulnerabilities-traps. This knowledge gives you the clarity to see where and how you BREAK THE CYCLE - faster... it's like getting the superpower of x-ray vision: you can now see through the bullshit (Sassy Sarah wanted to come out to play on this one! )
WEEK 9: Relationship Healing
This is where you tackle one of the hardest questions: "Will they change?". By taking a look at how REAL change sounds, looks, and feels, you get a CLEAR picture of what YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO EXPECT from someone who says they're "working on it."
WEEK 10: Why We Stay
Honesty, courage, vulnerability, self-awareness, grace, tenacity. These are the things you'll tap into this week as you take a look at the reasons you are staying in a relationship where there is gaslighting happening; you call out any reasons that are NOT in alignment with your values, and identify where values conflicts are keeping you stuck.
WEEK 11: Embracing Awakening
Get ready to spend some time connecting with your higher, fully awakened self! Step into the fullness of your potential, and imagine where your new awareness (thoughts, feelings and desires) can take you!
WEEK 12: Celebration
This final week is for you to bear witness to the awakening you have gone through. Validation, joy, recognition... you finish this journey the same way you started it - with intention and dedication to know yourself, love yourself, and trust yourself.
DECONSTRUCTING GASLIGHTING™ E2: EMPOWERMENT
12-WEEK SIGNATURE PROGRAM INCLUDES...
These anchoring points are what makes my approach unique! Why?
Because you will have
a tremendous amount of support
as you go through this course.
As companions for each lesson in the program, you will also receive a:
From my own in-depth personal and professional experience, I created a program that incorporates “anchoring points” to offer additional support to help you navigate through the Deconstructing Gaslighting™ E2: Empowerment program.
Musing: This is a question for the lesson; one that you come back to over and over throughout the week as you let the question sink in - maybe shake some things loose, and allow both your truth and your vision for your higher self to surface.
Video: Ranging in length of 10-30 minutes each, this is where the information of your lesson is provided to you.
Worksheet/Assessment: Each lesson has a worksheet or assessment that has been created to help you apply the lesson to YOUR specific situation. It can create powerful insights when you see your answers in “black and white”!
Embodiment Experience: Sometimes in the form of a game; sometimes in the form of an art project - these activities were created to help you “feel” into the lesson; it’s a way to bypass the obstacles your brain sometimes creates as a coping mechanism, and find answers you may not otherwise see. In these “backdoor” experiences, we often have big “A-HA!” moments, and come away with powerful validation and clarity.
Top Take-Aways & Action Steps: This anchor is about self-accountability! Naming the things that were impactful, sitting with what you need to do in response to what you’ve learned or discovered, and identifying an action step (or two!) to generate even a little forward motion - week after week - is how we begin to see BIG changes in our relationships over time!
Mantras: This is the space where you take those big, “A-HA!” moments/insights/action steps, and turn them into short phrases that ground you in your truth as you are trying to create new neural pathways in your brain - they inspire you to hold a boundary, not settle, not gaslight yourself, etc. An example in my own life is, “I define me!”. That came from the realization that I had been letting others have the power to define things about me, and I wasn’t going to let them do that any more. When doubt would arise, I would say this mantra and sink into myself with curiosity and compassion (and determination!).
Celebrations: This anchor is a psychological one - it’s about positive reinforcement! Opening the door to this stuff is HARD WORK, and celebrating our wins along the way - whether that win is holding a new boundary, discovering a truth about ourselves, or experiencing freedom in some new way - celebrating those wins tells our subconscious WE WANT MORE OF THIS! No thing is too big or too small to celebrate, and you can celebrate however you want. For example, saying, “I am proud of myself for asking for what I needed to feel safe, even though my partner said I was being too needy” is a celebration.
These anchoring points are incredibly powerful!
This program is for you if...
Signature Program + Live Group Coaching:
The Signature Program PLUS weekly Live Group Coaching is for YOU if:
You learn/assimilate information best when you get to hear others' experiences, questions, and answers as well as your own.

You may have a somewhat demanding schedule, but can fit in AT LEAST your 15 minutes of 1-1 time either during the day or at night, once a week.
You know you'll want feedback from me every step along the way - even if just for 10-15 minutes (I can help you A LOT in 15 minutes, I promise!)
Maybe PRIVATE Coaching is More Your Style!
If you've read this far, then I’m guessing you already know deep down that this program is right for you!
you're looking for an experience just for YOU!
Signature Course PLUS Private Coaching:
This option would be for you if your need for SAFETY and PRIVACY are the most important things to you, and in addition to being able to ask questions about the course, you want coaching around real-time things happening in your life and relationship(s).
"Before Sarah's coaching I looked outside of myself for validation and didn't trust my own reality. Now, with a deeper understanding of how others gaslight us AND how we can gaslight ourselves, I know myself, love myself, and trust myself, and only put energy into the relationships that do the same. Her coaching taught me to raise the bar for my relationships and authentically live my best life as my true self."
