Divorce creates conflict, confusion, and uncertainty. This is both common and understandable. The most important relationship in our lives has just ended. People may feel grief, a sense of loss, sorrow or even despair – also common and natural. In many cases this flood of emotions is difficult to process while moving forward into a future and the unknown. This is because people have never considered a life without their spouse, living alone, intermittent time with their children, financial setback. That is, until their divorce is over.
The task of building a new life in the face of these thoughts and feelings can seem overwhelming. A divorce coach supports the client taking their first steps after divorce in several ways:
• Identifying all areas of life divorce has affected and to what extent
• Assessing a client’s readiness for change
• Bypassing the most common mistakes made in the first year after divorce
• Embracing a new vision of life going forward
• Creating an action plan to realize that vision
• Rebuilding relationships affected by divorce
• Shaping an effective co-parenting relationship
• Reinforcing confidence that a client will find love again if they so choose
• Celebrating new opportunities and new dreams
It is important to remember; your marriage may be over but your life is not! We can choose to either suffer at the hands of fear and uncertainty or we can choose to relish the prospect of new challenges and new dreams. While this may seem an insurmountable task, a divorce coach has the training and experience to support choosing what steps to take and when.A divorce coach can be the thinking partner and life resource needed to break free if the past and step forward into a new life.
