What makes Divorce Coaching unique and different than general Life Coaching?
The Divorce Coach is a specialist with tools that help people through the challenges they meet at each of the three stages of divorce; before, during and after divorce.
Divorce Coaches are also specifically designed for working in the most challenging of circumstances and with individuals who are stressed to the max. Divorces coaches work with ease in dealing with the emotional stories of divorce.
Divorce Coaches are equipped to deal with the unique distinctions of divorce such as:
Multiple areas of change: relationships-family, friends, in-laws, grandparents, children, relationships as couples, community engagement, housing healthcare, finances, education, childcare, career-business, health and well-being, identity, and assuming new roles, to name a few!
Intensity of Emotions: denial, resistance, anger numbness, isolation, aloneness, shame, getting even, getting out, helplessness, resignation and throwing in the towel.
