Heartbreak Podcast - Covert Narcissism


I have shared on this podcast before about my experiences of dating narcissists, and the heartbreak I went through when those relationships ended. When I was heartbroken, I spent so much time trying to find the coach that I am today, someone to help me understand why I was falling for Mr. Unavailable, and how I could heal my heart and find my person. And that is exactly what I now have the honor to do. 

This episode is inspired by a current client as I help her to get out of a relationship with someone who checks off all the boxes of being a covert narcissist. Being in a relationship with a narcissist can be toxic, but because they keep drawing you in, it can feel impossible to leave. If you are dating a narcissist, this episode is for you. Or, if you dated a covert narcissist in the past and are struggling with the fallout and the heartbreak, this is for you. Let’s look at the signs of covert narcissism, what it looks like to date someone with this personality disorder, and talk about why you deserve better, and how to get there. 

This work is very nuanced. So if you want me to look at your specific situation and get coached on how to heal your heart, fall in love with yourself, and find someone better, I invite you to apply for my one-year group coaching program, Stop Wanting Him Back and Find Someone Better. I now offer my group coaching program in six- and twelve-month options and have a payment plan available. If I was able to transform my life with this work, then I can coach you to get the results of healing your heart too. To learn more, visit my website at:

PLEASE NOTE: Claire refers to her exes and the listener’s ex as a “he,” based on her own personal experience as a heterosexual female, but this work can be applied to ANYONE going through heartbreak. ALL genders and sexual orientations are encouraged to listen and apply Claire’s tools into their own lives!
