Welcome to Divorce Recovery Coaching! I am here to help you manage the transition of divorce with confidence and resilience. Here are answers to some of the most common questions.
What is a Divorce Coach? A divorce coach is a professional who provides support, guidance, and tools to individuals going through the emotionally turbulent process of divorce. They focus on helping individuals navigate this life transition and move towards healing, growth, and rediscovery.
What services does a divorce coach provide? A divorce coach provides a range of services including emotional support, strategic planning, confidence-building, self-care techniques, and assistance in rebuilding life post-divorce. They can also help in managing stress, dealing with custody and legal issues, and setting new life goals.
How is a divorce coach different from a therapist or counselor? While therapists or counselors focus on past traumas, psychological issues, and long-term mental health, a divorce coach is action-oriented and focuses on the present and future. They provide practical strategies and steps to help you manage your current situation and move forward.
How long will I need a divorce coach? The duration of the coaching relationship varies depending on individual needs and goals. Some people benefit from a few months of coaching while others may choose to work with a coach for a year or more. It's a personalized process and the coach will work with you to establish a timeframe that suits your needs.
Will my sessions with the divorce coach be confidential? Confidentiality is a cornerstone of the coaching relationship., but is not the same as "attorney client privilege". For this reason, I do not record our sessions or keep notes on our sessions. This way, I am unable to share information about our sessions and they can remain private.
What if I feel fine after my divorce, do I still need a coach? Even if you feel fine, a divorce marks a significant life transition and can bring about unforeseen challenges. A divorce coach can help you navigate these changes and ensure you're emotionally prepared for your new phase of life. However, the decision to engage a coach is entirely up to you.
