Falling in love is easy and so is getting married. The hard part comes in when you have to work hard every day to maintain and nurture the relationship as you grow and change. What was once a loving relationship can easily disintegrate into a barely civil arrangement, which is not benefitting either partner.
Divorce is one of the worst things to go through and there are certainly mental and physical health issues that come as a result of a messy divorce or breakup. However, don’t forget that you don’t have to go through the process alone. There are professionals certified in divorce coaching to support you and help you make the best possible decisions.
Whether you are going in-person or getting a divorce coach online, it’s important to know what they are going to do for you. Divorce coaches guide people going through a breakup or divorce and help with support and motivation to healthily navigate the divorce journey. A certified divorce coach ultimately creates a flexible goal-orientated process designed to support people going through a divorce to reach the best possible outcome based on their particular interests and needs.
Not everyone that becomes a divorce coach is from the same background and when hiring a divorce coach, you’ll find some are lawyers from the American Bar Association, others are mental health professionals or trauma therapists, and some certified divorce financial analysts. Your divorce coach might specialize in a particular area and this is why it’s so important that you find a divorce coach that is best suited to your specific needs.
It’s also important to keep in mind that divorce coaching is a completely different process to what you’ll find in counseling or therapy. Certified divorce coaches won’t make any medical analyses, they won’t try to unpack your past and find the root cause of your issues and why your marriage didn’t work out. Your coach is also not your divorce lawyer and won’t be the person you should go to for legal advice. However, they are there to walk you through the process of divorce and explain it to you in a way that you will be able to understand more clearly.
As mentioned, don’t expect a therapy session from a divorce coach, but rather a guided path on how to build your confidence and ability to be able to emotionally handle everything that comes with a divorce and your future that lies ahead.
Thing divorce coaches can do includes:
• Equip you with ways to patiently and calmly manage the journey of divorce
• Provide information on the various stages of the grief cycle and divorce and how to healthily acknowledge and work through each one
• Help you to learn how to manage to live a full life throughout the divorce process and for the years after
• Act as a mediator and collaborator with your lawyer to help with costs and information such as documents and emotional strength for legal processes
• Act as a support structure with the emotions you don’t want to burden your family, friends, or lawyer with
• Listen to your problems and complaints (especially about your ex) and equip you with healthy ways to manage these triggers
• Help you to set and achieve manageable goals for life after your divorce
