Who is Adèle Théron?
Adèle Théron is an internationally acclaimed mentor and executive coach, certified therapist and best-selling author specialising in change and transformation management.
Hundreds of individual clients over 12 years have benefited from her work as a private therapist or as part of a group workshop. At the same time, large organisations and corporations have worked with Adèle to help manoeuvre them through mergers and acquisitions, often across international borders.
How does she work?
Whether it is a person facing the end of their marriage or the chaos that comes from the closure of a factory, Adèle believes in the personal touch, helping people with whatever issue they are facing and on any scale. Her corporate experience has allowed her to focus on measurable and results-driven timelines which she brings to her coaching and mentorship programs. Using a project management approach which aims to create goals and hit targets quicker and more efficiently, she also acknowledges that every problem is unique to the individual going through it, and adapts her programs and approach accordingly.
Adèle’s own journey has seen her live and work on multiple continents. It is the combination of her understanding of different cultures, her experience in working with the vagaries of personal trauma, along with her expertise in engineering solutions for multi-nationals, which has honed her unique set of skills to offer bespoke coaching programs aimed not just at managing change, but at embracing transformation.
Adèle helps her clients navigate life’s obstacles and heartaches, whether it be facing a divorce or death in the family, moving countries or switching jobs, coping with illnesses or facing a mid-life crisis, often working with clients over a period of time, guiding them through multiple hurdles. She understands when a client requires an outside perspective to forensically analyse their problems, while at the same time she brings her empathy to the table when it is time to sit down and help negotiate a heartbreaking settlement or separation.
Adèle’s aim is to find a seamless and drama-free solution to disputes and dilemmas, starting with identifying the root of the problem itself. Once identified, she will then design a pathway to not only help clients steer their way out of trouble, but also forge a better path for their future.
Adèle’s end-to-end divorce and coaching services are created with the deep understanding of the complexities and emotional confusion that often come with such life events. As a trained and professional outsider, she brings clarity and understanding to what can often be an entangled situation requiring daunting decisions. She helps her clients face each and every decision head on, coaching them how to navigate their path, while at the same time creating a solid support structure which grounds them along their journey. Her roles vary throughout the process, ranging from coach, mentor, guide and therapist to cheerleader and sometimes tough task master, a service she also extends to other members of the family, such as children, who may be affected.
The man behind The Naked Divorce - it was impossible to develop the program without the experiences she had with Bruce...
"At Naked Divorce we jump in the trenches with you and we walk with you back into the light. You're not gonna get any lofty, academic, therapeutic mumbo jumbo from any of us"
Adèle Théron, Divorce Coach
Who does she work with?
Adèle’s clients are often high-powered individuals with complex and intensely busy lives who simply do not have the time to go through years of counselling. Her pragmatic and solutions-focused approach helps her clients to quickly adapt to change, while at the same time encouraging them to experience and embrace great transformation. Adèle helps her clients to embrace the pivot, an experience which she believes can be deeply profound and life changing. Adèle offers one-on-one coaching and guidance for clients world-wide. Her programs are designed for individuals with high pressure demands in their lives, and are therefore both flexible and tailored. With technology, this personalised approach can seamlessly fit into a busy clients’ schedule, ensuring minimum disruption to their daily lives, while offering them tools, a support system, guidance and often leadership in facing and overcoming multiple challenges.
Adèle’s recovery and discovery programs are dedicated to helping individuals navigate life changes effortlessly so that they can move forward with their best lives.
"My mission is to help men and women to navigate traumatic journeys in an effortless way, as well as helping them harness the chaos of trauma to become a catalyst for life transformation"
Types of clients and her Approach
Clients include people from all walks of life and include but are not limited to CEOs, Executive managers, Vice Presidents, business owners, busy mums, professionals, film directors, business analysts, psychologists, psychiatrists, SMEs, investment bankers, fund managers, project managers, legal directors, product managers, taxi drivers, expats, doctors, art directors, politicians, celebrities, actors, corporate trainers and police men and women, etc.
What all these people have in common is a strong commitment to getting unstuck and being willing to do whatever it takes to reach their goals. With commitment and focus, results are almost guaranteed.
Adèle works more as a forensic coach than a talking therapist sitting on the sidelines having a chat once-a-week-for-an-hour. She analyses the problems her clients present at a very deep level and goes deeper than a regular therapist in understanding the core issues and cognitive dissonances which have occured. She doesn't advise from a pedestal, she climbs in the trenches with people and works with them until all problems are solved, returning them to empowerment and clarity once more.
"I don't believe in sitting around chatting or simply asking clients how they feel about issues. People are smart and in a crisis, if everyone knew what to do, they would do it. What is needed in a crisis is proactivity, project management, TOTAL care and clear leadership from the therapist, working alongside clients to help them reach their goals. This is how I work.
If I take on a client, I am ALL IN and won't stop till we found the solutions to the problems they are facing. As a result, I can only take on a certain number of clients at any given time and have a waiting list.
Working with me DOES come with a warning: you won't like my approach if you aren't willing to do the work or go to a forensic level of detail in your life. The devil is in the detail with problem solving as often the source of the issues lies hidden from your view..."
Have you ever felt so alone that you could tell no one?
"I felt so trapped by the facade of my life. Almost, throttled by it. I had omitted so many details about what my marriage was really like that I had made a cage and I felt so trapped by this facade that I needed to maintain. I wasn't ready to confront the reality so I allowed life to continue and I told no one (of course looking back I should have got a coach immediately, but like many others it didn't even occur to me that there were professional divorce life coaches out there that could help me).
I went to work, I flew to clients and I continued to transform companies. And I would come home and I would drink and I would have insomnia. And I did what people normally do in these situations. I went and I saw a therapist.
I would pour my heart out but it just actually made me feel more depressed so I dumped that therapist and found another one but I didn't feel any better.
The washing started to pile up in the house and the post at the door was just remaining unopened.
The fridge was empty, I stopped eating. The lights were always off and I sank into a complete abyss.
This cycle lasted some time as I realise now that I was actually in denial about my situation.
Having dealt with this traumatic event, I feel incredibly passionate about helping people navigate this complicated journey avoiding the mistakes I made. I have spent 12 years of my life on the mastery of this journey."

Divorce is unlike other life traumas...
"When someone dies, there is usually so much support and love around. People are much more compassionate and understanding. Divorce represents a failure within our society, so people approach this trauma with trepidation. They want to white-wash the events quickly so that the shame of the failure doesn't impact them in any way. The sense of failure makes the shame component of healing from divorce acute. It's therefore very important to heal in a very specific way, using a very specific approach like The Naked Divorce."

I initially created Naked Divorce to help myself...
"I created Naked Divorce to help myself heal. Then my friends and family started to use the program and next thing, my notes became a book. It was quite scary because it had a naked picture of me on the cover and it became an Amazon Bestseller.
And suddenly I was thrust into this limelight of interviews and television and radio as a divorce coach. Articles, Marie Claire, Cosmo, all over the newspapers. Divorce coaching clients I was working with started to heal in 21 days. And being real and true really became that motto to live by. My life as a divorce coach had begun.
Now if we fast forward to today, thousands of people have completed the Naked Divorce 21-day program. People believe that healing quickly is possible.
We have a seven-day healing version [The Haven Divorce Retreat] of the Naked Divorce now. We have Divorce Angels all over the world. We've had our success published in over 78 publications globally and received rewards for running the best programs on divorce recovery globally.
I went back to university and I got qualified as a certified divorce coach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Trauma Recovery Therapist and I wrote programmes for the rapid recovery from all kinds of trauma. I developed a marriage program to stop people from crossing the threshold into divorce.
In creating all these other coaching programmes and retreats, we focused on the recovery of divorce, from infidelity trauma in marriages, from stopping people from getting divorced and then things that happen in relationships in life like birth traumas, bankruptcies, redundancies, health and midlife crises."

There is beauty in getting naked
I now run my divorce coaching and life transformation retreats all over the world.
This is really my best work and trauma coaching really is what I was born to do. And I feel incredibly privileged to do this work.
You know sometimes the hardest thing in the world is to admit that something is wrong. So if you find yourself keeping up appearances and maintaining a facade, I know exactly how exhausting and lonely that place can be.
And other people knowing you need help can sometimes feel worse than actually not getting that help that you need but I can tell you from experience that there really is beauty in the breakdown.
There is beauty in getting naked and facing the truth of the situation. That truth will set you free and it will give you new openings to new possibilities..."

Fight for your best life
"So if you are feeling stuck in your life and you want more vitality, love and connection, you've come to the right place. What I will say is don't give up and sink into complacency. Fight for your best life.
With the right team in place, healing recovery is not just a possibility, it's a reality.
We don't commiserate, or simply allow aimless chatting. We focus on results and we will lead you out of your situation. We believe in recover and recovery takes hard work, homework, action and focus. If you do the work, you will heal.
So think about where it is that you are right now. Here in this place, what is it like?
Maybe you're feeling stuck, deflated, resigned, sad, worried, arguing a lot. Maybe you're in a relationship where you're tolerating less vitality, less happiness and you have less confidence.
Maybe you're retreating into a dream world to escape your real world. Then think about where you wanna be instead. What are these dreams and these aspirations that you had?
What if we can get you back to that place of love, happiness, vitality and confidence?
What if you could create aliveness and magic? Imagine being able to have all the conversations you wanna have and having the courage to get real with people.
Picture being able to melt those arguments and barriers in a moment. So to get from where you are to where you wanna be, I think you will agree that you probably need a new strategy and if you wanna explore what that new strategy is all about, get in touch with us andbook a clarity call.
Take that first step to reclaiming yourself and your real life. My team of divorce coaches (Divorce-Angels as we call them) and I are waiting for you and we are here to support you through every step of the journey. Until then.
