Navigating Divorce: How a Divorce Coach Can Help You Take the Next Steps

Becky Swanson
If you find yourself considering divorce, you may feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next.

Questions like how to tell your partner, how to co-parent, and what options you have in your state can leave you feeling lost. You may not want to turn to friends and family for advice just yet. This is where a divorce coach can be an invaluable resource.

As a divorce coach, I work with individuals at all stages of the divorce process. While I don't have a magic wand or a "Big Book of Right Answers," I can help you get clear on what you want and need at each stage, so that you can navigate the process with confidence and move towards a happier and more fulfilling life after divorce.
Here are some common concerns and questions that you may have when considering divorce:

1. How do I tell my partner? The thought of having this conversation can be daunting. A divorce coach can help you prepare for this conversation, providing guidance on how to approach it, what to say, and how to manage potential reactions from your partner.

2. What is the best way to co-parent during the early stages of divorce? Co-parenting can be challenging, especially when emotions are high. A divorce coach can provide you with strategies and tools for effective co-parenting, helping you prioritize the well-being of your children during this time of transition.

3. Do we have to go to court? What are my options in my state? Many people are not aware of the various options available to them in the divorce process, such as collaborative divorce or mediation. A divorce coach can help you understand the different approaches and their pros and cons, empowering you to make informed decisions about the best path for your situation.

4. How do I find a mediator, lawyer, financial advisor, etc? Choosing the right professionals to support you during your divorce is crucial. A divorce coach can provide recommendations, help you understand the roles of different professionals, and guide you in the selection process.

5. How do I maintain privacy and confidentiality during the process? If you're not ready to share your divorce with your circle of friends and family, a divorce coach can provide you with a confidential space to discuss your concerns, fears, and questions without judgment or disclosure.

6. How do I take care of myself during this process? Divorce can take a toll on your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Even your spiritual life can be disrupted. A divorce coach can help you prioritize self-care, manage stress, and develop coping strategies to navigate the challenges that may arise during the process. 

And this is just the beginning. After the initial stages the questions and decisions don't stop. 

The good news is that you don't have to make all the decisions at the beginning. Making high level directional decisions mean you have a compass for all the other decisions that you will face through the whole process.

Divorce can be overwhelming, but I can provide you with invaluable support and guidance. By helping you clarify your goals, explore your options, and develop strategies for effective communication and self-care, as your divorce coach I will empower you to take the next steps towards a positive and fulfilling life after divorce.

Remember, you don't have to go through it alone.
