Getting Past Your Breakup is the original source for many of the concepts used by many therapists to help clients get past a breakup. Since its inception in 1995 through the publication of the book in 2009, GPYB (prior to 2006, it was Getting Past Your Past/GPYP) put the program together and it has been called the most successful breakup program in the world. Since then it has been recommended and used by many therapists all over the world and the book is on the Recommended list of many mental health agencies.
Unfortunately, the program has also copied by many unscrupulous people who are out to make a buck on someone else's work and some of the concepts have even been suggested to be used in unhealthy ways (using NC to get your ex back). This is NOT that.
Getting Past Your Breakup appears on several "Best Breakup Books of All Time" lists including Huffington Post and Marie Claire. The book consistently retains a top 10 spot on Amazon divorce for over 9 years. It was THE self-help book of the year in 2009 and continues to place on "best breakup books" and "best self-help books" lists as recently as December 2018. It's an accolade few others can boast. To do the PROGRAM right, you can do it with the program's creator who used it to get past her own divorce in 1991. Don't be fooled by imitators!

GPYB Coaching and Counseling consists of working through the GPYB program one-on-one. In the initial intake meeting, client and counselor discuss issues and goals and treatment plan. Client input is VITAL for the plan.
Therapy prices in New York City range from $140 for a beginning therapist to $200 an hour for a more experienced therapist. This does not take the reputation as an author or expert into account. Most NYC (and other large metropolitan areas) therapists who have written books (best sellers or not) or are speakers/media personalities charge well over $200 an hour.
The national average is $115 to $160. Since GPYB counsels clients from around the world but pays NYC expenses, the prices are averaged and extra fees for the reputation of the therapist are not added. The 2018 GPYB hourly rate is $125 to $175 with discounts for multiple sessions and discounts for bootcamp / group alumni. Every attempt is made to keep prices as feasible as possible. Prices adjust on January 1st and remain steady throughout the year. Prices will increase on all offerings as of 1/1/19. Any packages purchased by Dec 31, 2018 will be honored at the 2018 provided they are used within the time period (see package details).
