Going through a divorce is probably the worst thing that can happen to a once-loving couple. But when it is the only solution to maintain a level of civility between them or ensure the future of their children, it becomes a necessary evil…
Divorce is a trying time for everyone involved. But you don’t have to be alone. Speak to a Divorce Coach and get clarity and direction about your situation. Under the circumstances, you need someone to think on your behalf and help you keep a level head in situations where you’ll be forgiven for going berserk.
What is a Divorce Coach?
A Divorce Coach provides support, guidance, and motivation for people going through a separation or divorce. The goal is to provide a flexible, goal-oriented process so the ones going through a divorce can reach the best possible decision based on their concerns, interests, and needs. Divorce Coaches can come from different professional backgrounds-financial planners, lawyers, mediators, or mental health professionals. This allows clients to choose one based on their specific needs. To be clear, coaching is nothing like counseling or therapy or anything clinical in nature. No diagnosis is made and it is not based on a medical diagnosis either, although this is the common assumption.Coaching doesn’t dig deep into your past to get a better understanding of the root causes of your problem. A coach isn’t a substitute for a lawyer, either. They don’t offer legal advice but will explain the legal process of a divorce in language that you can easily understand.
How does a Divorce Coach work exactly?
A Divorce Coach helps a client build the ability and confidence to manage all the processes involved in their divorce. This way, they gain greater satisfaction from the outcome. A Divorce Coach can:
- Train you to properly deal with a divorce’s dynamics, especially in daily living, emotional, and legal aspects
- Help you collaborate with your lawyer in a more cost-effective and efficient manner, providing information as to what documents to prepare and the details to collect
- Provide the hand-holding you need from someone when you are not willing to share the burden with your family or your lawyer
- Listen to your complaints about your ex-spouse and then provide tips on how to respond to triggers to ensure a better outcome
- Help you navigate through the transition and your life after divorce, especially in facing challenges once your lawyer closes the file and serves their role
- Help you achieve your goals following the life-changing event
- Teach you how to remain patient and calm by providing you with information about the various stages of the divorce process and how to appropriately deal with each one
