Frequently Asked Questions

Wondering if the Getting Unstuck class is right for you? Here you can get answers to the most frequently asked questions about the course, so you can make the best decision for you.

When you register on the course website, you’ll create a student profile in order to access the lessons. You can use any username you like, and upload any profile picture. It’s up to you how much you participate in discussions and how much you share about yourself. Your email address and full name etc is private and will not be shared with any other students.

The course fee will show up as ‘Kate Bee’ on bank statements and PayPal accounts.

The course itself is not on Facebook. The lessons and group discussions are all integrated on one, private website. I like to steer clear of Facebook because not everyone uses it and some people want to remain completely anonymous.

I get it. Here’s a different way to look at this:

I know that when you’re stepping out of your comfort zone and signing up to a course like mine, it would be great to be able to do it at the ‘perfect’ time… perhaps when you had an empty social calendar, no work stress, life drama or any other challenges coming your way. 

But as we all know, things rarely work out like that! Therefore, it’s really important that your sobriety can handle ‘real life’ – with all the holidays, work events, birthdays and anniversaries that inevitably crop up along the way. And this is exactly what I’ll teach you inside the course.

One of the reasons that taking a 6 week break works so well is that you inevitably have a few challenges like this come up along the way. When you’ve fully committed to taking a break from booze, then you have no choice but to find a way through these challenges. That might feel scary right now, but honestly – it’s a really, really good thing! Pushing through these moments is where the magic happens. 

When you give yourself the opportunity to do the things you thought you couldn’t do, you make huge progress. You teach yourself that you’re capable of more than you thought. You get to experience sobriety properly. Alcohol free living isn’t about hiding at home and cancelling all your social engagements. When you’re test driving alcohol free living, you need to be able to live your normal life – your real life – just minus the alcohol. And I’ll be there, supporting you through this challenge every step of the way.

Remember, there’s never, ever going to be a ‘perfect’ moment to quit drinking. There will always be a reason why now isn’t the right time. Sometimes, you just have to decide that you’re going to make this the right time. 

 

In an ideal world, it would be great if your partner could completely get on board with this and join you on this journey. However, most of the women who join the course will – for various reasons – not have the support of their significant other. So you are not alone in this! It certainly doesn’t need to hold you back.

When you’re not getting much encouragement at home, it’s even more important to be able to get it elsewhere. We’re not meant to do the hard stuff in life alone. It makes such a difference to have other people rooting for you, and to have easy access to help. This kind of practical support and community is definitely something you’ll get on the course. 

Before starting the class, I suggest you make it clear to your partner that you’re taking a break for six weeks. Set expectations in advance and let them know exactly what you’re doing. You don’t need their approval – but it can be easier if they’re in the know, so they don’t offer you alcoholic drinks during the 6 week course. 

Finally – remember that you are your own person. You are 100% responsible for yourself. I’m sure there are already tons of things that you do on your own, that your partner doesn’t join in with. Or perhaps there are things they enjoy, or believe in, that you don’t. It’s worth reminding yourself of just how much of an individual you are. Their habits do not have to be your habits… don’t let anyone else hold you back!

 

You can complete your daily lesson at whatever time works best for you.

Every morning, you’ll wake up to a daily email with a link to that day’s lesson. (When you register on the course website, we’ll ask whereabouts in the world you live, so we can make sure we email you in the early hours of the morning, your time. There will be women from all over the world in your class.) 

Some people like to get up early to do their lesson, others do it later in the day. The most important thing is to commit to logging in each day and doing the daily lesson. That way you can stay on top of things, keep up with the group and maintain your sober momentum! Each lesson takes around 15-20 mins to complete.




Absolutely. I’ve had some students keep themselves to themselves throughout the entire course and they’ve still got incredible results. It’s completely up to you how much you contribute to the discussion at the end of every lesson. Even if you’re a bit shy, I suspect you’ll be impressed by the vibe of the group and you’ll want to participate in the end! You’ll get incredible value from the support and ideas of these other intelligent and caring women.

The course costs £497 if you pay in full. If you opt for the payment plan, there will be four monthly payments of £140, with the first instalment taken on the day you register.

I’m based in the UK, hence why I charge in British pounds. However, I have a lot of women join from America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and many other parts of the world.

Exchange rates vary day by day, so if you’re trying to work out the cost in your currency, the best thing is to type it as a question into google. You can literally write, “What is £497 in [insert currency here]?”

Alternatively, please email support@thesoberschool.com and we can look it up for you.

At checkout, you can pay in your currency. The money is then transferred to me in pounds. 

I understand that choosing to invest in yourself can be a difficult decision.

The thing a lot of people don’t realise is just how much they spend on alcohol in the first place. Once you sit down and work out how much you drink every week, you might be surprised how much it’s costing you.

Most women find the course pays for itself within six weeks or two months of sobriety. (For more on the incredible savings you’ll make in sobriety, check out this blog of mine!)

Don’t forget to account for all the other costs that come with this lifestyle: the hangover food, taxi rides, lost phones, missed days off work, the gym membership you don’t use… There’s also the cost of things money can’t buy – the missed life experiences, the broken promises, the conversations you can’t remember.

So perhaps the question should be, what is the cost of continuing to drink? 

I’ve made investing in this course as easy as I can for you – even if you can’t pay for the full programme right now. You can get access to the Getting Unstuck programme for just £140 if you select the payment plan option. After that, you’ll have three other monthly payments of £140 to make. We also have a 7 day refund policy, so if you decide within the first week that this isn’t a good fit, you can get your money back. 

know that the strategies you’ll learn in this programme work. (It’s the exact same process that’s been behind my own successful sobriety and those of my students.) Plus, I’m pretty confident you’ll love the course – 96.5% of my students say they would recommend the programme to a friend*.

Freeing yourself from the alcohol trap is life changing, and I want you to feel really good about making this investment in yourself and your future. That’s why I offer a 7-day money back guarantee. If, by the end of the first week, you feel the course isn’t for you, I’ll refund your enrolment fee. That’s how confident I am in the quality of this programme. You can read the full refund policy here.

I only run this class a few times each year. The date of the next course is not yet confirmed, but we will run the course again in early 2023.

The Getting Unstuck course is for women only.

The Getting Unstuck course contains 6 weeks of daily lessons, starting on 3rd October 2022 and finishing on 13th November. You will be part of a community where everyone receives the same lesson on the same day, plus I’m on hand every day throughout the 6 weeks to answer your individual questions.

For the full experience, I recommend starting on the 3rd October and working through the class with us, together. However, you do have lifetime access to the course material, so technically you can purchase the course now and go through it at a later date, on your own. But I think you’ll get much more out of it if you do it now, with us!

You can get your individual questions answered within the course website, but it isn’t a 1 on 1 space. Within the course, there’s a Questions For Kate thread, where I will answer your queries within 24 hours and you’ll get a direct response from me. This actually provides more value than 1-on-1, because you get the value of hearing the questions and answers of other students. 

We also have weekly group coaching calls on Zoom, where we can talk through anything that’s coming up for you in the moment.

At the end of the day, this question is really about the support you’re going to get… and if you look at the results my graduates have had, in dozens of countries around the world, well – that level of support is clearly there. 

No problem. Right now you’re reading these words on your browser, phone or computer. If you can manage to do that, you’ve got more or less all the skills you need!

I will give you step by step instructions on how to use the course website, but to be honest, you probably won’t really need it. The whole site is very simple and straightforward.
