What Is Divorce Coaching?
Divorce Coaching is a unique partnership between coach and client and is a powerful tool for navigating through the painful emotional turmoil that arising during separation.
It creates a structure to manage the challenges and practical issues that divorce presents (i.e., lifestyle, financial, family and social restructuring.). With coaching, you can sort out all the issues and see what you really need to do to keep moving forward.
It is a way for you get your life back on track so that you can perform your best and make wise choices about the tough decisions that will forever impact you and your children.
Tom Landry defined a coach as “someone who tells you what you don’t want to hear, who gets you to see what you don’t want to see so that you can become the person you always wanted to be.” There are a lot of similarities between the work of coaches hired by elite athletes and those hired by individuals wanting more happiness in their own lives. Having a good coach can make the difference between just surviving your divorce or growing through and moving beyond it.
Who Comes for Divorce Coaching?
Typically the coaching client is someone who wants to manage their divorce process more smoothly; who wants to move forward with his or her life and is willing to take some action to get where they want to go. Maybe you want to sort out your needs and goals; you may want to learn new skills to manage the turbulent ups and downs of this emotional roller coaster or learn how to protect your children as you restructure your family life. Perhaps you simply want support in healing so that you can move beyond your experience and rebuild a richer, more fulfilling life.
People who are serious about moving through and beyond their divorce are attracted to coaching because they know that a supportive coach will help them get through this transition more quickly and effectively so they can get on with rebuilding their life.
People who avoid dealing with their anger or grief or neglect paying attention to managing their divorce can suffer from a divorce ‘hangover’ for years. Don’t let this happen to you!

There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go.
