LOVE ON THE ROCKS!
August 22, 2011 – You read the book “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” by John Gray PhD, but it didn’t help. You suggested counseling but he/she wouldn’t go. You’ve spoken with your Pastor on many occasions but didn’t receive the counsel that you felt you both needed. And now, you’re heading for divorce. Or worst yet, your divorce is final and now you don’t know what to do.
What you are experiencing right now is probably a combination of pain, anger, frustration, and even guilt. You may also feel dazed, confused, and alone. But there is hope…Divorce Coaching.
What is Divorce Coaching?
The right divorce coach will work with you (together as a couple or individually), to help you manage emotions, identify practical realities of your divorce and address issues related to self-esteem. The coaching process is an opportunity to work with a coach whose only goal is to help you through the divorce.
What about the Divorce Coach?
Your divorce coach understands that each session is all about YOU. Your needs. Your desires. And your goals. A divorce coach works with present issues to provide you with the tools to move forward into the future. A divorce coach will also provide a safe environment that will allow you to explore your anger, fear, frustration, guilt and sadness.
There are other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods to a costly court-room battle – mediation and collaborative divorce are two of them.
Other alternatives to a costly court-room battle
Mediation – a neutral third party who does not represent either party, but is there solely to facilitate a mutually agreed upon solution. The mediator can sort through differences between the two parties involved in a dispute, and find common ground; definitely a much more cost-effective solution to hiring an attorney.
Collaborative Divorce – a team of professionals trained in the collaborative divorce process. The “team” is made up of 2-attorneys, 2-divorce coaches, a child specialist and financial specialist. Collaborative Divorce is not for everyone or for every situation. PLEASE do your research.
