Why is coaching so important and what will it give me?

Working with a breakup & divorce coach alongside your solicitor and/or financial adviser might at first seem like yet another expense, at a time when your finances are uncertain, and you’re worried about what the future holds.

This is a false economy.

Working with a coach will save you money, and give you personalised support through the process.

Here’s how:

Divorce is an emotional rollercoaster, and the emotional ups and downs can derail the legal process. When you react quickly to triggers through a fog of emotion, you may get stuck in a cycle of conflict, and the costs will rack up. Working openly with a coach will enable you to see beyond the fog.

A coach will hear your feelings, and show you how to shift them gently, to make space for logical thought and decision making. You will have clarity of thinking to make decisions that will affect the rest of your life.

You may need support to handle your communication with your ex, and the process of divorce with confidence – that emotional support will be money well spent, as you’ll have strategies to deal with the curveballs divorce inevitably throws your way.

A coach will show you how to find calm and respond rather than react. You’ll spend less time feeling overwhelmed and anxious, and you’ll be able to see the wood for the trees. You’ll be able to see options and choices.

You will have clarity on your priorities. You’ll be able to give your solicitor clear instructions. That means less time spent with them on an hourly rate.

Fear might be paralysing, so you get stuck and avoid making decisions – coaches will face those fears with you and reduce their power, so that you can make informed choices. Staying stuck will cost you dearly.

When you are emotionally stable, you see more choices, and can make well-informed, clear, positive decisions. You enter into negotiations feeling stronger. Your divorce is likely to be resolved more quickly and with less conflict. The savings in legal fees will be significant.

Coaching will also empower you to see beyond your separation and divorce and, when you’re ready, to start to create the blueprint for a new future.

Our coaches’ fees will give you a great return on investment. You’ll be calmer, clearer, more confident, and you’ll make empowered choices for your future.

And the saving to your sanity will be priceless.
