Professional Divorce Coach
Having a divorce coach for one or both of you in a collaborative, mediated, or litigated divorce can help your divorce process immensely. The role of professional divorce coach has proven so useful that it has been adopted as a vital role in the collaborative divorce process. The role is often called a Communication Specialist.
The roles and talents of a professional divorce coach are multi-faceted. I can help you:
- Keep fears, tears, and anger at a minimum
- Create and maintain a safe, non-toxic environment for discussion
- Help you and your soon to be Ex avoid fear-inducing triggers that could derail the process
- Avoid feeling intimidated or bullied
- Remain proactive rather than reactive
- Know what to say and how to say it
- Stay present, positive, and focused on solutions
- Feel empowered at important meetings
- Remain open to beneficial alternatives
- Work with your soon to be Ex in a collaborative way
- Save a fair amount of money in attorney fees.
A Kinder, Gentler, and Less Expensive Divorce
In addition to the emotional benefits, the financial savings are worth noting. My coaching rates are about half the hourly rate of an attorney. Although attorneys are usually compassionate to your situation they are not trained to work with the emotional aspects of divorce. Paying attorney rates for a place to vent is expensive. Your attorney can listen but may not be able to offer much in the way of substantive direction for the fear, anger, tears, guilt and other emotions that are taking you over. In addition to things running more smoothly, I can help you preserve your dignity, reduce your costs, and reduce the over all impact divorce could otherwise have on you and your family.
I’ve witnessed hundreds of ending marriages. Those who come out the best get help with the emotional aspects. I bring top-notch professional help to your side at meetings with your attorney, mediator, child advocate, financial, and other professionals. I can work with you individually to help you stay grounded, set goals, and show up in a calm but powerful way. If it is hard for you to attend meetings with your Ex, or soon-to-be Ex, my presence will be invaluable.
Or I can work with you together. If you’re are seeking a collaborative divorce, I will be a neutral 3rd party with both you, and your soon to be former, partner to help calm fears, negotiation from your most resourceful selves, work through intense emotions in my office rather than in your meetings with highly paid attorneys, separate particularly difficult or sentimental assets such as who stays in the home, and give you positive direction with your children.
