What is Divorce Coaching?
Are you are confused and don’t understand the process? Are you are feeling emotional and vulnerable? Are you overwhelmed by the paperwork and the financials? Are you worried about the children?
Then you need a Divorce Coach. A Coach is NOT like talking to a lawyer. If you were to use your lawyer as a Coach it will cost you a lot of money. Your lawyer will charge you in 6 minute units when they have a chat with you. That’s because lawyers charge for the time that they take.
Wherever you are in the divorce process I can help. Coaching is Transformational
Divorce Coaching is flexible, goal-oriented process designed to support, motivate, and guide people going through divorce to help them make the best possible decisions for their future, based on their particular interests, needs, and concerns. A Coach can be the Voice of Reason, your objective Thinking Partner when it seems like your whole world is falling apart.
A Coach does not tell you what to do but rather works with you so you become more self-aware and you are able to make good decisions. A Coach will also help you work through the practical and emotional aspects of your breakup, answer questions you have on the process and help you focus on the issues. Coaching can help you get clear on what you want to achieve and help you work on a plan for the future. The coaching outcome of the process is to shift perspective enough to see new options. New options allows the client to make new choices which will get different results.
A coach is an educator, sharing information that will help you understand the twists and turns of the road that you are on, and where you may be derailed and where the boundaries are. As your guide I will help you avoid the rough spots, not by telling you what to do but by helping you to anticipate the unexpected and be prepared to respond appropriately.
You are probably thinking you don’t need a Coach as you have a lot of friends who can give you advice and support. Your friends may not be objective when advising you so that’s why it’s a good idea to have a Divorce Coach. No two divorces are alike and your friend may have gone through a divorce too but every divorce is unique as every family is unique.
Many clients end up using their lawyer as a therapist, pouring their heart out and this is unwise because it can result in mounting legal fees. Also the majority of solicitors don’t have the time or the skills to manage conflict. They can handle the legal process for their clients and problem solve. That’s what they are good at. Whereas a Divorce Coach can assist a client to get organised for the divorce process so the client is able to make all the decisions regarding his/her divorce instead of handing over the entire process to the lawyer and asking the lawyer to make the decisions.
