How a Divorce Coach Can Improve Your Divorce

Posted on in Divorce

How a Divorce Coach Can Improve Your DivorceDivorce is more than a logistical process that determines who gets what properties and how you share responsibility for your children. For you, it is an emotional and personal process that will at times make you feel uncertain about your life and your future. Divorce is a new and frightening experience for most people, and it can be helpful to have someone who is knowledgeable to guide you through the process. That is why a growing number of divorcees find it empowering to have a divorce coach.

What Is a Divorce Coach?

A divorce coach is a professional who works with divorce clients on handling their emotional concerns and guides them towards being a constructive part of the divorce process. A divorce coach is part of your divorce team that includes your attorney. Divorce coaching has grown as a profession in recent decades, and there are programs that train divorce coaches how to handle real-life scenarios that occur in divorces. Finding a Certified Divorce Coach should assure you that you are working with someone who understands how to help you.

What Can a Divorce Coach Do for Me?

A divorce coach can be useful at any stage of the divorce process. Clients will consult divorce coaches to:

  • Prepare for their meeting with their divorce attorney;
  • Discuss issues that concern them about their divorce;
  • Come up with clear solutions to those issues;
  • Practice communicating with their spouse during negotiations;
  • Identify which family and friends should be part of their support system;
  • Differentiate between good and bad advice from those family and friends; and
  • Learn how to become a proactive part of their divorce.

A divorce coach is someone to turn to when you feel overwhelmed by your divorce and whose job is to advise you on how to reach your divorce goals. Once you have figured out your strategy for success, your coach can hold you accountable to stick to that strategy. What you get out of your divorce coach will depend on how willing you are to work with him or her.
