Traumas and hurts from the past often leave a mark inside people that are difficult to process and overcome. These negative experiences affect the way people relate with others, their perception of life, motivation, and even their intimate relationships, to mention a few. Dating and life coach, Imad Jbara, is teaching people the value of inner healing to achieve better relationships.
Imad began his coaching career at NYC Wing Women, a well-known and respected relationship coaching agency. After some time, he realized that he could help more people by developing his own company. He founded The Imperfect Suitor to educate individuals that today’s foundation for relationships has become very toxic. People need a way to heal on the inside for them to build more durable and lasting relationships.
His personal experience with intimate relationships was not always smooth. Imad was fortunate enough to come to a realization that the main problem was coming from his trust issues brought about by childhood trauma. At the age of 15, his mother became sick. His father was forced to leave for Morocco to nurse his ailing mother back to health. What was supposed to be a short trip turned to five years. In the time that Imad was alone trying to survive by himself, he encountered many difficulties.
The toxicity in his life affected his relationships gravely. He lost important people in his life due to it. He was only able to find a way to change inwardly when he finally confronted himself and accept that he needed help to overcome trauma. This is the same help that he knows many people need nowadays.
Through his customized coaching programs, Imad has been able to help more than 100 clients, both men, and women, whose ages are between 21-50 years old. His unique and effective approach to inner healing has significantly improved their character enough to achieve their aims concerning love and personal growth. The Inner Mastery Program designed by Imad has paved the way for happy long-term relationships, marriages, and revamped interpersonal skills.
The program uses a 4-step process involving cognitive-behavioral programming to help people discover their inner trauma and hurts that hinder them from keeping a healthy relationship. The program begins by assisting clients in letting go of toxic relationships from the past that have left a negative impact on them. The next step is to reconfigure one’s thought process based on a person’s personal belief system. Mindfulness is introduced to teach clients to live in the moment rather than in the past.
The third step in the program teaches clients to exercise self-control once their emotions start to get the best of them. It also involves overcoming self-doubt to build a healthy mindset. Imad helps them visualize the kind of life they want to have in the future and focus on achieving it. Finally, the last step is self-acceptance and taking responsibility for whatever outcomes may occur from decisions they have made both in the past and in the future.
“Imad has helped me with relationships, as well as my own personal growth. Imad doesn’t tell you what you want to hear; he gives you honest and unbiased feedback that will give you the best results. It comes from a genuine and caring place. He makes you see the bigger picture and always has your best interests at heart. I’ve been able to work on my weaknesses and focus on my strengths thanks to his guidance,” says Derek, a financial analyst.
Imad is the author of the book, “The College Cheat Sheet.” He has also been previously published on ABC, Fox, NY Weekly, NBC, wikiHow, and DatingNews.com. In all of his guestings, he would always emphasize that what he does is to bring out the best in people. More than helping them in their personal relationships, finding inner peace and self-acceptance are more critical.
